Wake up call from Mickey Mouse – The Disney Hotel Alarm

There are 7 Disney owned and themed “on-site” hotels at Disneyland Paris. They all have some exclusive features you don’t have in partner hotels near by. Of course you are closest to the Parks and Disney Village but there are some small details I love about staying in a Disney signature hotel. One is the Room TV Channel with the “10 things to know before you go” loop (I know, I know, in some selected partner hotels you have this tv channel too).

Another one is the alarm you can set with your room telephone. Choose a time on which you’ll get a call to wake you up and you telephone rings at that time. You really should answer that call…

BECAUSE: It’s Mickey Mouse who’s calling!

I’ve recorded it for you.. Read More

What the Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show and the Disneyland Railroad have in common

I am a big fan of the music played all around Disneyland Paris. Sometimes I watch Youtube videos just to get the feeling of walking around the parks. While watching/listening to all the Frontierland videos I’ve found out that the Disneyland Railroad and Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show have something in common:

They share a piece of the same music.

And the title I am talking about is “The Cavalcade and Maze” from composer George Fenton. The Song is released on the 1992 album “Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show”.

It’s basically the first Song in Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show. It’s the song that starts playing when the cowboys from all four teams ride into the arena for the first time.

I am not sure if the music or at least some of the tracks in BBWWS are from movie soundtracks but I couldn’t find anything about this particular track somewhere else. So I guess it is especially produced for the show. Or was it produced for the Railroad? 😉

Newport Bay Clubs unbelievable 530m long corridor

Disney’s Newport Bay Club Hotel opened in April 1992. With it’s 1098 rooms it was western Europe’s biggest Hotel. As it “only” has 8 floors it has to be quite long to house so many rooms. To get to your room sometimes the walk down it’s corridors can take quite some time. If you’re lucky and get a room at the very last edge of this beautiful Hotel your walk from the reception can be as long as 300 meters (328 yards). Some years ago I made my way down the longest of all corridors in floor 2 (the floor with the reception). From one end to the other this is a 530m (1738ft) long journey! I have a video of this 😉
