The box set was compiled by Disney Music Group’s resident music historian and
Grammy®-winning producer, Randy Thornton. Thornton said, “From The
Studio’s earliest days, music has always been an integral part of the Disney
creative process. But when “Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf” debuted in 1933, it began a musical legacy that remains unmatched to this day – probably the most recognizable and beloved song catalog in the world. Even though the musical styles range from inspiring ballads, novelty songs, folk, rock, to Broadway showtunes, Disney Music is a genre in and of itself."
As a special bonus for box set purchasers, it includes a new medley of Disney
hits by YouTube acapella sensations Peter Hollens and Alex G. Peter and Alex
create fully orchestrated songs using only the sounds of their voices. With well
over 100 million views on YouTube alone, their sensational approach has excited
audiences all over the world. An accompanying music video will debut October
22 on their respective YouTube Channels.
The Disney Classics box set will be available wherever music is sold on
November 12, 2013.

My love affair with Disney started long before I had kids. Having kids just fuel my love for it even more. We love all things Disney! Living in Southern California means that we are closer enough to get annual passes for everyone in the family. We visit Disneyland pretty frequently. No matter how much time we spend at Disneyland, my kids could never get enough of the place. In addition to visiting the amusement park all the time, we also own all of the Disney DVDs. I have been collecting them ever since I was a young teen. Now that I have kids, we just continue to add to that collection.
My 7 year old daughter has memorized most of the Disney songs and she loves singing them all the time. For this reason, we were super excited abut getting the Disney Classic Box set to review. The box set comes with 4 different CDs covering Modern Classic, Timeless Classic, Theme Park Classic, and Television Classic. It is hard to pick a favorite CD because we are familiar with all of the songs on every CD. But, we are really happy about some of the songs that made their ways into the collection. In the Modern Classics, we love "Under the Sea," "You have got a Friend in Me, and "Colors of the Wind." In Timeless Classics, we especially enjoy " When I see an Elephant fly," and "Once Upon a Dream." In Theme Park Classics, my children love "It's a Small World" and "Yo Ho." Last but not least, in Television Classics, our favorites are "Winnie the Pooh," Hot Dog!" and " Micky Mouse Club Alma Mater."
I remember when my daughter was about 3 years old, she started memorizing some of the Disney songs from the DVDs she watched. When she sang them to me, I sang along with her. Now that she is older (and have been going to choir lessons for over a year), she does not always want me sing along with her. I often sing off key, so it drives my daughter nuts that I always insist on singing along with her whenever we hear a Disney song coming on, lol. Honestly, I just could not help myself. The songs are so fun to listen to as well as single along with.
Since we been going to Disneyland for years, DD has also been memorizing the songs she hear on the rides. We don't have access to the songs, so she would just sing along when we are on these rides. Having this box set means that she will get to hear Disney Theme Park music even when we are at home and that's very exciting for DD.
