BGM Of The Week: Epcot Entrance Loop

   So, we're in the middle of Epcot's Flower And Garden Festival, which is both a blessing and a curse.  Yes, there are the fabulous food booths flanking World Showcase lagoon…and the topiaries are pretty…but during this entire time the wonderful Epcot entrance music loop is replaced by vintage pop music. (lots of Beach Boys…) These songs basically ruin the grandiose feeling of the entrance to the
park. (plus, Leave a Legacy doesn't help either…)

   Luckily for us the festival is only a few months, and the traditional music loop will return. This intricate piece of background music is composed of an over arching theme, with musical pieces from around the park weaved in as well.   It's always fun to hear Bruce Broughton's Ellen's Energy Adventure score come on as we're entering the park. So epic.
   Here it is in all its glory:

   I should also mention that I listen to this loop almost every morning, as part of my waking up routine. There is nothing better than Epcot entrance music, coffee, and gobs of social media to catch up on.
