List of 90s Disney Animated Film Soundtrack Vinyl Records Now Available on shopDisney

Ask any Disney animated movie fan what their favorite decade of films is and most likely they’ll respond with the 1990s. That time after all was dominated by the “Disney Renaissance” period that saw fantastic stories and new animation techniques that would later become standard in other productions to come.

Let’s not forget the music too. There’s a lot of fine and memorable songs that came out of 90s Disney animated films. And as shopDisney seems to be on a nostalgia trip for that decade, they’re released a series of 90s Disney Classic film soundtracks; and not just any soundtrack, but printed on vinyl LPs.

That’s some mad retro nostalgia that the House of Mouse’s merchandising arm is going for. Yes, these are real vinyl records, fully painted with the main characters of their respective films. The movie soundtracks are:

  1. Beauty and the Beast
  2. Aladdin
  3. The Lion King
  4. Hercules

Yeah, the last one bypassed Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame; shop Disney isn’t telling why. But the featured LP soundtracks are still sweet, costing $24.95 each. That’s a tad steep compared to CDs, but they’re a prize catch for 90s Disney fans who still have record players at home.

List of Disney Shopping/Dining/Entertainment Complexes in their Parks and Resorts

When Disney Parks and Resorts are mentioned, the first things to mind might be the rides, attractions, characters to meet and greet, and so on. But sometimes guests might just want to be able to shop till they drop, or at least until they get hungry and get some eats.

This then is where the shopping/dining/entertainment complexes of the Disney parks come in. With a varied selection of retail outlets and restaurants to choose from – plus attractions like cinemas and concert venues – they make for a similarly fun alternative to their neighboring theme parks. Here’s a list of them worldwide.

  1. Disney Springs (opened 1975 under original name; present name in 2015) at Walt Disney World
  2. Disney Village (opened 1992 under original name; present name in 1996) at Disneyland Paris
  3. Ikspiari (opened 2000) at Tokyo Disney Resort
  4. Downtown Disney (opened 2001) at Disneyland Resort, Anaheim
  5. Disneytown (2016) at Shanghai Disney Resort

Hong Kong Disneyland Resort was supposed to get its own distinct shopping/dining/entertainment complex as well; but its development, much less construction and opening, has not been realized ever since HKDR first started operation in 2005.
