Musical Monday- “Evolution of Disney” with Todrick Hall

Oooh do I love Todrick Hall!  He’s gained his popularity as a YouTuber, and many of his videos are disney themed… some are more appropriate (family friendly) than others lol!  “Evolution of Disney” is definitely one of his family friendly works.

In watching his “Evolution of Disney” video, I definitely enjoyed the musical arrangements and quality of the performance.  One slight detail that bothered me is that not all of the music is 100% chronological order of movie/show release date (and it really is in order for the most part…) .  While this bothers me in the “evolution” sense, as a musician, I understand for arrangement purposes why some of the music is out of order.

Fun Fact Friday- Prince Charming Regal Carrousel

Fun Fact-

In 1967, Disney purchased Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel from the Olympic Park in Maplewood, New Jersey. The carrousel was originally built in 1917 by The Philadelphia Toboggan Company, one of the most prestigious carrousel companies. Ninety of the horses are from the original carousel, hand carved from wood. In addition, there are eleven fiberglass horses made by Disney.

When Disney acquired it, the company artists refurbished the 90 horses so that no two are exactly alike.

Cinderella’s Golden Carrousel was renamed “Prince Charming Regal Carousel” in 2010 to go more with the theming of “New Fantasyland.”

There are eighteen hand- painted scenes that tell the story of Cinderella on the wooden canopy that covers this attraction.
