It's a pretty spendy set, but A Musical History of Disneyland has a pretty good selection of park ride-through soundtracks including the Haunted Mansion, Pirates of the Caribbean, and much more! It came out for the 50th anniversary, and its a very cool set. Just pretty expensive at this point, since its such a great collector piece.

Aside from something like this, there are some good Youtube channels who post ride audio, so you could try searching on there. One good one I know of is Mr.ThemeParksAudio. There is also this one which has some good area music loops. Also, SuperHotLarry posts some great audio as well, if I remember right, he's even a reddit user and has been active on this sub before. If you needed physical copies, you could always try to message the people who run these channel, and perhaps they may be willing to give you a copy, but I'm not 100% sure.

Read The Disneyland Story: The Unofficial Guide to the Evolution of Walt Disney's Dream by Sam Gennawey. I HIGHLY recommend it. It's available on Amazon. Very well written book and goes into the perfect amount of detail about the decisions behind Disneyland's construction.

Here's a few of my favorite quotes:

  • "You know, those arcade machines were played for $.10 for years… I even had some five cent machines in there," McKim said. "We were following Walt's philosophy about this. He didn't even want them to raise the price of parking, which stayed at $.25 for years. He didn't mind making money off the park, but he didn't want to make money off the parking. He wanted to give the public a good deal."

  • "A survey of the [Cast Members, 3 years after opening], revealed that the composite average Disneyland employee is married, has 2.5 children, is a member of a church, is active in some type of community organization, owns his home, lives in Orange County, spends a majority of his earnings in the County, and has been employed at Disneyland for two to three years." (The same paragraph reveals that there was a 57% increase in payroll. I'm very curious what today's survey results would be)

  • "At the time, the technology (for the Haunted Mansion) was not available. This would be a reoccurring theme at Disneyland. Often the ideas surpassed the existing technology but became the motivation for innovention."

  • "Once, Walt was riding Jungle Cruise and the crocodiles mechanical effect was not working. Walt turned to his team and said, 'I know damn well these things work. I just saw it on television.' The next few times Walt decided to take a ride on the Jungle Cruise, two maintenance man would hide behind the bushes and manually operate the crocodiles. It didn't take Walt long to catch on to this ruse."

  • "Actually what we're selling throughout the park is reassurance. We offer adventures in which you survive a kind of personal challenge – a charging hippo, a runaway mine train, a wicked witch, and out-of-control bobsled. But in every case, we let you win. We let your survival instincts triumph over adversity. A trip to Disneyland is an excuse and reinsurance about oneself one's ability to meet me even handle the real challenges in life."

  • "Walt liked having movie people around him. He felt that their professional experience taught them how to create continuity between scenes which would be applied to the ways guests moved from land to land and to the attractions. The use of filmmaking techniques in the design of Disneyland would become one of the park's signature elements."

Here's a dump: has tons of park audio bits. Website is horribly set up, but the music is good (most is at 128 mbps though, so quality is limited). has a lot of good music as well. has lots of good discussion on which tracks are used as background music in the various lands. The folks on here are good at what they do, and it's amazing how many tracks are available for purchase online.

There are a couple "holy grails" for park audio collectors. The first is the 50th anniversary music release:

The other is the "Disneyland Forever" audio collection. In the late 90's, they had kiosks around the park where you could purchase various bits of park audio and make custom CD's. There's a torrent around (won't link here) that has compiled all of the artwork and audio from these kiosks, as most of the tracks aren't available for the public. It has tons of area music, ride throughs for past attractions, etc. is where fans share in park induction recordings, and past audio that Disney doesn't currently sell.

With any given track, there are usually different versions you can get- that vary in length and audio quality.

With a 5-day park hopper you will definitely see everything, so no worries there :)

If you really want to ride Radiator Spring Racers don't go in the FastPass line. I watched it grow almost to the length of a regular queue line. Instead go right to RSR, ride it, and then hit the FastPass a little later when the return time is in the evening: riding RSR at night is really cool as well. In fact, make sure you hang out in Cars Land and the parks at night and don't retire early, they take on a different feel at night and the atmosphere is great.

Grab a copy of The Imagineering Field Guide to Disneyland, it has a lot of interesting information you can read up on as you travel there. Picking up a Hidden Mickey book can help you scour every square inch of the park too.

And don't be afraid to swallow your pride and visit some attractions that might seem dumb :)

It's not a YouTube video but, I highly recommend the audiobook of The Disneyland Story. It's an incredibly detailed book about Walt creating and building Disneyland that also goes into DCA construction. It's something my SO and I listened to before we went for the first time together and it was really really excellent. We actually put it on before bed and listen as we slumber off to sleep. I have dreams that often take place in Disneyland. It's fun!

For more great images and stories of the park origins, check out the recently published “Walt Disney’s Disneyland” book. It’s got lots of amazing retro photos and interesting stories about the park in every phase of development but the formative years are truly fascinating. I was able to check out a copy from my local library but the hardcover is also on Amazon if you want a version for your West Elm coffee table ;)

I agree with /u/mildly_interesting and the suggestion for the Bingo Cards. I've used those once before and they're pretty fun!

If you like puzzles you should consider a "MouseAdventure Vacation" packet. They collect a handful of "Quests" from old events and put them into a bound booklet you can take to the park with you. It's not everyone's cup of tea, and some of the puzzles are tough. But it can be fun as a group to solve. Check it out here. (The packets are available a bit down that page.)

Lastly, I'd suggest picking up a copy of this book. The Disneyland Encyclopedia. While not a treasure hunt, it has SO much information on Disneyland that you're bound to find secrets and facts about the park that'd you would have never known. On top of that, you can go find those previously unknown details in the park and see them for yourself.

I LOVED The Disneyland Story - really detailed and goes from the beginning to I think like 2012....Very Informative.

I also love the Mouse Tales and it's sequel....But they are a bit more scandal/crazy story based then history.

u/Quagmire33 · 2 pointsr/Disneyland

We bought this one for our last trip and it was great:

Junior Encyclopedia of Animated Characters

We got a lot of compliments from the characters on the book and it gave the kids something to read while waiting in line. I think it’s better than signing a blank page. And for the characters that aren’t in the book, we just had them sign the inside cover.

As many have mentioned, the Tubes of You is a good place. If you need titles to start searching, check out any of these on Amazon (might be a fair bit of redundancy, I just grabbed a handful of URLs): <- Based on the cover, this looks to be the Spotify playlist /u/whitesoxfan5622 mentioned.

If none of those lists contain quite what you're looking for, try contacting City Hall in Disneyland with the specifics and they might be able to help you out/point you in the right direction.

There is a hidden Mickey handbook that you can get at a local bookstore. It is great fun to see how many one can find in the park. It is small enough that you can carry the book with you in the park.

u/Djgentlegiant · 2 pointsr/Disneyland

the people vs disneyland highly recommend this book. Has a lot of great info. A lot of insight on to why Disneyland is the way it is today

u/rockafirelover · 2 pointsr/Disneyland

If this helps and hopefully could bring some magic to you and your brother, there's a Mickey Mouse waffle iron that you can buy on Amazon:


u/Z0MBGiEF · 3 pointsr/Disneyland

I bought this book about two years ago, it's still one of my favorite Disney art books, it pretty much has every poster ever made for the parks:

u/reswobjr3 · 5 pointsr/Disneyland

I have this one on my book shelf, it's pretty good.

u/ExcessiveIrritation · 3 pointsr/Disneyland

ummm this is actually a pretty well documented story. Last place I heard it told was in The Disneyland Story: The Unofficial Guide to the Evolution of Walt Disney's Dream by Sam Gennawey. I'm sorry I can't provide you with a page number as I've listened to the book. I believe it's somewhere between the hours 7 and 10.

u/gameraboy · 1 pointr/Disneyland

I was lucky enough to pick this up in 2006, I'm sure some searching could find you a download: A Musical History of Disneyland, 50th Anniversary

u/forlorn_hope28 · 3 pointsr/Disneyland

Might as well answer everyone's replies in one post. /u/subsonicmonkey /u/Peetal

I remember my 50th Anniversary Disneyland CD has "Space Mountain (Daytime Track) listed as one of the audio tracks (Disc 2, Track 10). Because of that I always thought there was a slight variation between the daytime and nighttime tracks. If it was standardized to just one audio track the whole day, then this would make sense why I could never tell the difference. :P

Any Disney historians able to clear this up for me?

u/ArrenPawk · 2 pointsr/Disneyland

Better yet I'd get her the book this is based on: The Little Man of Disneyland

It's the home of Patrick Begorra, who was there first before Mickey and the gang took up shop.

u/bubblesugarsocks · 1 pointr/Disneyland

This one? That's not a canon book, but I do apologise for saying that's not a title, lol. I'm not deliberately trolling, just trying to get to the bottom of the "Redhead Rumour".

u/gigabyte898 · 44 pointsr/Disneyland

You can buy the soft serve mix on Amazon direct from Dole. The mix can be made in any consumer ice cream maker. According to the product description it's "Exactly the same as found in Disneyland and Hawaii".

u/Brewmd · 1 pointr/Disneyland

Yup. I bought them on amazon.

Tajín Clásico Seasoning Mini Display 0.35 oz (pack of 10)

u/Mamac81 · 2 pointsr/Disneyland

Carry your own pen! Also we use this: Junior Encyclopedia of Animated Characters

It doesn’t have all the characters but we worked around that. Elena signed a blank page in the back and Rafiki signed next to his picture on Mufasa’s page. Dale drew a mustache on Chip’s face.

u/arrozconlecheyum · 1 pointr/Disneyland

If you're familiar with torrents this set is floating around the internet.

u/lookuplookdown · 3 pointsr/Disneyland

His backstory is now back in print! Available at Amazon.

[Mouse Tales: A Behind-the-Ears Look at Disneyland by David Koenig] ( was the first book I read about Disneyland history, and it completely sparked my interest. He covers some of the "darker" elements of Disneyland's history including murders, fights, riots, lawsuits, accidents, and after-hours shenanigans. I've heard some complaints about his bias and his sources, but I think it's a fantastic book that goes beyond the typical published history.
