Play Disney Parks App Adds New Playlist Curated by Disney Legend Richard Sherman

Hi everyone!

Disney Legend Richard Sherman has curated a new playlist on the #PlayDisneyParks app in conjunction with Apple Music. The songs range from “Golden Dream” to songs from the Sherman Brothers including “One Little Spark” and more. The range of music reminds me some of the former Disneyland Forever CD’s (from 20 years ago!). And there is a free 3 month trial if you don’t subscribe to Apple Music. Read below for more information from Disney!

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 Apple Music®* and in the Play app.

“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
