I missed where you joined the group.
Welcome sir, we’re glad to have you along!
Thanks for the welcome, Goofy! Its good to be here.

I'm able to pull off the music at work by wearing ear-buds so it doesn't carry down the hall... my boss sits next to me, and the walls are thin, so I tell him that I listen to work so I don't hear anything confidential (which is pretty much true... but is a nice excuse regardless )

Thanks for the tip! I listen to Live365.com and there are a ton of Disney park stations of all different varieties... but I'll have to try some of those you mention.

I know you'll agree with me that the manager won't matter if you are playing with a roster of AA players. I guess it will at least be the end of the "sold out streak" topic. There's no way they'll be able to keep that going with only 5K fans in the park.
That sellout streak is absurd! Half their games this year had plenty of seats left at game-time, and they still call it a sellout.

With D-Cot you can choose what you want to hear... More of on demand than a radio station.


Let us know what you think.

And if you need help figuring it our Scott is our resident support expert. If you need his phone number let me know....

I listen to Live365 as well. Usually switch between Disney music and a few other play lists. There really are a lot of stations. Some are the same all the time so if you are looking for something specific you can tune in for those.

They must be using the old seating chart before they added 10K seats. What would Dennis Drinkwater say?

Yes, the station list is overwhelming with Live365... but nice to have a lot of options for some very specific genres. I also like switching up formats a bit. Are there specific Disney stations you prefer over the others? I'm not a VIP, so my choices are limited, but I like some of the shows on Radio Buena Vista quite a bit.

Can our trip get here any sooner?
I was just going to suggest D-cot.com, but of course, everyone beat me to it. It's a great site and has a great selection of music to listen to.

Brian is right You can select the music you want to listen to. And no, I'm not the resident support expert, I just slept at a Holiday Inn Express last night.

Do you have any issues with the audio quality with D-cot? A lot of their selection sounds like it was recorded live. I hear people in the background alot and some of the parades and shows sound like someone just held up a tape recorder. Not trying to slam D-cot- in fact I like it better now that they've added a few tracks to their Haunted Mansion selection.

Yeah some of their selections are like that - but, I've found, for the most part they are good.

And I guess, I kinda like the tracks with the crowd noise too - makes me feel like I'm a part of parks!
