Music for WL arrival

Veteran WL's I need your help with a MUSIC challenge from my DH - I need to figure out what music to play in our car as we're approaching WL to get us mentally ready for the experience.

As an example of what I’m looking for: Last time we stayed at AKL, I had a Putumayo Afridan kids music CD playing which *really* made us feel like we were going somewhere exotic & fun. Last year was our first in WL, and the CD I picked just didn't match the whole WL experience.

So…. What kind of music would you recommend for listening when we arrive into WL? We're not much into country music though we love bluegrass. Kids music perhaps? Suggestions? I'd LOOOOVE to surprise DH with my music selection this year! (if it helps any, our DD is 3.75 yrs old)

TIA!

-Ana

casana I would reccommend some of the Wilderness Lodge background music. You can find the list of music here: http://www.mousesavers.com/wlmusic.html

It will make it feel like you're right there in the lodge

You can buy the songs individually on iTunes or possibly Amazon and compile your own mix.

Wilderness Lodge Music

Maybe you can get some soundtracks to "western" musicals or movies like "Oklahoma!" or "Seven Brides for Seven Brothers"?

On Sorcerer Radio (a live365 internet radio station) they play the lobby music from the Wilderness Lodge. I don't know if there is a way to access this music to play in the car, but it doesn't seem like you could do better than playing the actual WL music.

That's right - I knew you were going to overlap with us! We'll have 6 adults and 3 kids so maybe you'll see us looking around the lodge in amazement since we've never been before! We are SO excited too, my house is a total mess because instead of doing dishes and laundry I'm either on here reading or at the store buying supplies for the trip! DH can't wait until it's over.

We did it, we upgraded to WL CL for our December trip and I can hardly wait. I haven't been to the WL since August 2007, and we have never stayed CL before.
