I like to listen to music, when possible, at work. I also like music when I’m paying bills, etc on the computer. I also like Disney theme parks, and I think the music at the parks is a big part of the magic and reason why Disney is “special”. When I came across a playlist on Youtube of all the music (including ride narratives!) at every park, I was hooked. How cool to hear the Haunted Mansion ride – clear as a bell, or listen to Illuminations while typing away! I got myself a cheap set of earplugs at the dollar store, and a little smile while at work listening to my favorite Disney theme park music.

Great song from a great show:
I have a popular video of the ride at my web site http://cooldisneytrips.com and on Youtube, and have had numerous questions about the ride. I thought I would write an article to answer all these questions and perhaps serve as a nice reference for interested parties.
Really neat video of this great Disney ride. At the Animal Kingdom, Everest is a high speed thrill ride. These two guys have quite a lot of fun, they are a little goofy, but all in all a humorous video adding some laughs to the fun.
This is a scary ride, even the video is scary. I brought my 5 year old daughter on here and wished I didn’t although she did OK. Neat fact about the ride: While viewed from the front of the building’s entrance, trees are seen just behind the building. However, these trees are on the building’s roof, and create the illusion that the building is quite smaller than it actually is.
Video of ride:
* Before the ride opened in 1999, the ride was originally going to be named Tiger Rapids Run.
* This was Disney’s first attempt at a river rapids type ride, it has since been joined by Grizzly River Run at Disney’s California Adventure.
