Disney queue lines have some of the best music 

For some people, it’s the audio loop and the smell of musk as they enter Pirates of the Caribbean. For others, it’s the eerie sounds and creepy imagery within the gates of the Haunted Mansion. Other Disney lovers enjoy the area loops, or the music that plays in a particular area of the park, like Frontierland or Fantasyland.

People treasure the soundtracks from Disney attractions, including the line queue music, because of the nostalgia they evoke. Now, there’s an easy way Disney fans can listen to line queue music without stepping foot in a Disney park.

For Disney World lovers, the Sounds of Disney World Spotify playlist has all of your favorite music from the Florida location. 

Disney rides and themed park areas inspire the music for line queues

According to All Ears, the music that plays throughout the Disney Parks is carefully curated by Imagineers. First and foremost, the music needs to be appropriate depending on where it’s playing. After all — it wouldn’t make sense to hear German Oompah music in the Norway Pavilion of EPCOT

With a focus on the theme of the ride or area of the park, Imagineers carefully curate a playlist of songs that are upbeat, welcoming, and able to put a smile on guests’ faces.

For example, the highly specialized music heard in the Tomorrowland section of Disney World is mostly the sound of synthesizers. As All Ears points out, very few (if any) “traditional” instruments are heard in these recordings. If you listen closely, you might even be able to hear “Strange Things” from the Disney/Pixar 1995 movie Toy Story

Of course, “A Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” and “Now Is the Time” from the Carousel of Progress also play throughout the landscape of Tomorrowland.
