Episode 212 – Farewell to “Wishes” w/ Composer Greg Smith

Bryan RipperPodcast

This week on the All About the Mouse Disney Podcast Paul Barrie from A Window To The Magic is filling in for Jonathan while he is still away in Italy. Together we’re going to be remembering “Wishes” as it makes way for the new fireworks show at Magic Kingdom, “Happily Ever After”. Later in the show we’ll have the man who composed the music for both “Wishes” at Magic Kingdom and “Remember Dreams Come True” at Disneyland, Greg Smith, along with fellow contributor to the show Sarah Evans to talk about his work on the music for “Wishes”, “Remember Dreams Come True”, and other projects that he’s worked on. We’ll also find out what his thoughts are on “Wishes” ending its 15-year run in Walt Disney World and what he might have next on the horizon.

In the news this week, we bounce back and forth between Disneyland and Walt Disney World with stories about an auction coming up featuring the legendary map that Walt Disney had made of Disneyland to pitch to the bankers in order to get the funding for the project, Fantasmic returning to Disneyland with some new surprises, Disney Imagineers talking about their inspiration for Pandora – The World of Avatar as it was drawn from Bali and Jakarta, Disney’s California Adventuring previewing “Cars 3” in 4D, and much more!

We’ll also surprise another one of our listeners this week with an unexpected Mouse Call with Greg Smith on the line. Our lucky listener will answer the All About the Mouseketeer Interview questions and then Greg will give us his answers. If you would like to register to receive a Mouse Call from us, just send us an email to podcast@aatmcentral.com and give us your name and phone number.

Finally, we’ll cap things off with some in-park audio featuring Greg’s work on “Remember Dreams Come True” on the night the fireworks show returned to Disneyland. This is really going to be a spectacular show packed with info, insight, laughs, and surprises, so get ready for the All About the Mouse Disney Podcast – Your weekly dose of Disney magic and mayhem.
