Disney Plays Music Almost Everywhere

When you are in Disney have you ever noticed that they play music almost everywhere?  If I am correct they even have music in some of the bathrooms.  Actually there is no music in the monorail.

Knowing about electronics I am confident that they must spend a serious amount of money on their stereo equipment.  With all the equipment that they have I wonder if they have any Marshall avt50h units in use anywhere.  I saw a show one time that explained how the rides all get their music, and sounds from a giant computer rack that is housed in the utilidors.

There are times I wonder if this is the most efficient system because if one wire breaks then they have a serious amount of wire to rerun.  I have yet to see wireless speakers in Disney, but I am sure that they have thought of that.

Interesting fact… The speakers around the Illuminations lagoon were originally designed for military purposes.  The manufacturer of them is Bose.

Have you noticed music playing anywhere around Disney that you wouldn’t think is normal?

Disney Speakers Wanted

We have done some slight remodeling at our house, and in the process brought a little of Disney in.  We have always wanted to have a bit more Disney, but cost is a big factor.  The other day we again watched the HGTV show My Yard Goes Disney.  After seeing this show my daughter complained that I never find a way to get chosen for these types of shows.  After watching them I realized that each of them has been done in Florida.  I am sure that this is because Disney puts some serious amount of money into the projects, and they are designed in Disney.

mickey-speakerI can’t do anything major in my backyard that I can think of, but I would like to request that if anyone can find me a set of Mickey floor standing speakers for out by my swimming pool let me know.  We play music outside a lot of time during the summer, and we also like our backyard to look good for the horseshoe tournaments, and pool parties that we have.  I would also get a second pair for use inside my house in the living room, or downstairs in the theater room.
