The Mouse and The Music - Disney Attraction Soundtracks (Imagineer Podcast repost)
For all you Disney fans out there, I had the honor to co-host a segment called The Mouse and The Music on the Imagineer Podcast. This is the full two parter deep dive conversation we had on our favorite attractions in Disney parks including Magic Kingdom, Epcot, Hollywood Studios, Animal Kingdom, Disneyland, and California Adventure. Here's the description: Music at the Disney Parks is so iconic that several attraction themes have been popular for generations. From Sherman Brothers classics like it's a small world and The Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room to modern favorites like Golden Dream and even Nothing Can Stop Us Now, Disney attraction themes and scores help convey the story of the attraction and leave Disney fans singing along as they exit the experience. In this podcast episode (part 1), I chat with my cousin Mike (a music industry executive and lifelong Disney fan) about our favorite attraction soundtracks, including the stories behind them and why we love these themes so much. In part 1, we discuss our favorites at Magic Kingdom and Epcot. In our next episode (part 2), we'll discuss our favorites at Disney's Hollywood Studios, Disney's Animal Kingdom, Disneyland, and Disney California Adventure. Check out the Imagineer Podcast!

Matty Steinkamp is an award-winning filmmaker from Phoenix, Arizona. Matty and Pita Juarez created Mango Skies Productions in 2016. Together they produced and directed You Racist, Sexist Bigot, a feature-length documentary that has received several awards from the film festival circuit including “Best Documentary Feature”, “Best Picture” and Best Director.” From 2005 to the end of 2015, Matty built his portfolio with projects that humanized and chronicled how people interact with massive entertainment industries like the NFL and the X-Games.

With the founding of Mango Skies, Matty is continuing his work of capturing how the individual struggles to be part of something bigger than themselves. Matty works to be recognized as an ally in the fight against structures of society — like racism, sexism, and white supremacy — that oppress individuals.
