Listen up, Disney music fans! We have something you might like to see…or hear.
Since officially debuting in June at Disneyland Resort and Walt Disney World Resort, guests have been enjoying the all-new #PlayDisneyParks app – from interactive experiences and activities created for select attraction queues, to Disney trivia that allows the entire family to discover fun facts about their favorite theme parks. And with integrated music playlists through a connection with Apple Music*, guests are experiencing the magic from home!
We’re excited to share that guests can enjoy a brand new playlist, guest curated by Disney Legend Richard Sherman! The “Disney Parks Hits” playlist features songs specially selected by Richard based on his rich experiences writing music for revered Disney Parks attractions. The playlist is now available in the app via Apple Music* – and Apple Music* subscribers can even add their favorite tracks from the playlist directly to their Apple Music* library!
“Walt Disney always knew music could deliver far more emotional impact than merely words. We teamed his unparalleled optimism with our own to fuel the creative process. We will forever be grateful for the many wonderful opportunities Walt afforded us.” – Richard Sherman
The Play Disney Parks app has allowed users to celebrate the songs of Disney in a whole new way.
