When Blizzard Beach opened on April Fool’s Day in 1994, I was fortunate enough to be able to be there. It was a bit chilly that day, but the park’s many slides and other experiences (what other water park has a ski lift?) instantly made it one of my favorite places on property.

Besides all the great attractions, Blizzard Beach offered a lot of beachfront sand with reclining loungers to just relax in the sun, which I did many times.

The music was pretty cool too — a combination of Summer or beach-themed pop songs contrasted by occasional yodels. Totally odd, totally Disney, and totally perfect.

Here, for your listening pleasure, are all three of the alternating loops. Each loop lasts about an hour and were played in the A-B-C sequence presented here. The recording was made on 1995, from speaker in a planter in the beach area.

    Thanks for the uploads, whish there were more people like you!

    These look like they are mislabeled, and the third BB track doesn’t want to download.

      Now I’m embarrassed! The labels and the last loop links have been fixed. Thanks for letting me know!

    When I made an induction recording in 2008, the loop was about six hours in length. When you attempted your recording, I assume when loop C was finished it reverted back to loop A, confirming that, in fact, the loop was changed between your recording and mine?

      That is correct — at the conclusion of C, A started over. If you got there fairly early in the day and stayed awhile, you’d hear all if the loops several times. I can see the value in going to six hours to cut down on the repetition.
