In case you’ve been in a closet somewhere for the past 12 months, then you might not know it’s Disneylands 50th Birthday this year. Celebrations are set to kick off on May 4th with a huge press event (sorry folks, Disneyland is closed to the general public on the 4th) and a second event for the public on the 5th. Disneyland’s actual birthday will be celebrated on July 17th, but the celebration will stretch over 18 months and all five Disney resorts around the world when it’s done.
Planning to attend and want to brush up on some of Disneyland’s audio history before you go? Well then 1313southharborblvd.com is a must visit. The fine folks there have compiled 13 virtual LPs each chock full of high quality recordings from Disneyland’s past and present sounds. There are many attraction soundtracks in complete ride through length that I haven’t heard before.

Be careful – the retrospective MP3 compilation is incomplete.
Disc 13 is missing half of its tracks.
Looks like it’s down now… either exceeded its bandwith limit or the Mouse zapped ’em!
gah, it’s down. i’m taking the fam to disneyworld next month and this would be a fun prep … i’ll have to check back! thanks.
Did anyone happen to download any of the audio tracks? I would love to give a listen if anything would be available again – thanks.
Sweet Stash of Disneyland MP3s
There is a sweet 13-CD virtual boxed set of Disneyland audio goodness now online. Boing Boing pointed this out (originally found on The Disney Blog, and also mention that if you just use the links as is, it’ll pop up in a nasty Java bit.
