Every Christmas I embark upon a mission: to dig up the most uniquely Christmas background music that I can, the kind that’s themed in such a way that it feels like Disney in a manner regular carols can’t evoke. While it’s tempting to just repost the Animal Kingdom Lodge holiday background loop every year and call it a day, I have two new loops for you this year, and both in the same vein!
I enlisted the help of Twitter in my quest, and one of the suggestions that came back was Trader Sam’s loop. I searched for it on YouTube and nothing came back – but the Jingle Cruise did! This loop is a little old and includes a few repeats from the Echo Lake loop, but it includes some very Jungle Cruise-y music like a Hawaiian holiday song. I do wish that the radio announcements referenced in the video comments had made it over from previous years, but what can ya do.
I was all set to end the post here, and then – a miracle! I discovered a Disney’s Animal Kingdom entrance loop. According to the description, this version is now retired, but it sounds like it was still fairly recent. From last year, maybe? Regardless, it’s pretty evocative of DAK. I still prefer AKL’s loop, but this is a solid entry.
If you have any other great unique Christmas loops to share, do let me know!
P.S. What’s a jingle in the jungle, you ask? WELL:
