Animal Kingdom Lodge Music

We receive many questions about the music at the Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you're like us it's an important part of the incredible experience of the Animal Kingdom Lodge. If you're wondering who the artists and songs are we have a partial list for you here. We have links where you can buy them and you can go to the vendors to hear samples to see which song you're trying to identify. We'd also like to thank Nathan P at MouseSavers for helping us identify some of the ones we didn't know.
