Riley McDaniel grew up in Corpus Christi, TX in a low-socioeconomic household and one of the favorite family activites was to watch The Wonderful World of Disney (along with it's other reincarnations) on Sunday nights. Although the family couldn't afford to take a trip to Disney World made it his dream to one day see that magical world. This dream served as one of the many aspirations to do well in school and attend college. Today, Riley has a masters degree in Library Science and serves as a librarian at Red Oak High School in Red Oak Texas where he continues to give Disney as a source of inspiration to students. His family, a lovely wife, eleven year old son and seven year old daughter, lovingly refer to themselves as Disney Geeks. They can regularly be found hosting Disney parties whether it's for simply the premier of the Phineas and Ferb movie or a child's birthday party. As members of the Disney Vacation club (Wilderness Lodge home resort) the family can be found at Disney World once a year and Riley gives mini-seminars on planning the perfect Disney vacation.


Sitting in your car wondering what to listen to? Kids saying, “Mom, put on Lady Gaga”? At this moment, you realize your family needs more Disney music in the car. Never fear! There is more on the way.

Cinemedia Promotions sent us a press release announcing the release of two new Disney albums: THE ESSENTIAL DISNEY COLLECTION and THE KAROAKE DISNEY COLLECTION.

Now, everyone will have their own opinions on what an essential Disney Collection should contain, but this one is pretty good with fun sing-alongs and beautiful instrumentals, but, obviously, with such few titles included in the set, “essential” is only for marketing. I have to admit, “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” remains one of my favorite “Friday after work on the way home” songs.

THE KAROAKE DISNEY COLLECTION looks to add great fun to any family karaoke party. My only question remains, if you are distributing both albums why not include all the songs on THE KARAOKE DISNEY COLLECTION that are featured on THE ESSENTIAL DISNEY COLLECTION?

Here is the list of titles straight from the press release:

1. Fantasia – “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”
2. Song Of The South – “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”
3. Mary Poppins – “A Spoonful Of Sugar”
4. Mary Poppins – “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”
5. The Jungle Book – “The Bare Necessities”
6. The Jungle Book – “I Wanna Be Like You”
7. The Aristocats – “Ev’rybody Wants to Be a Cat”
8. The Little Mermaid – “Under The Sea”
9. The Little Mermaid – “Part Of Your World”
10. Beauty and The Beast – “Tale As Old As Time”
11. Aladdin – “A Whole New World”
12. Toy Story – “You’ve Got A Friend In Me”
13. Pocahontas – “Colors of the Wind”
14. Hercules – “Go The Distance”
15. Mulan – “Reflection”
16. High School Musical – “We’re All In This Together”
17. The Princess And The Frog – “Almost There”
18. Mary Poppins – “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” (Instrumental)
19. Song Of The South – “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah” (Instrumental)
20. The Aristocats – “Ev’rybody Wants to Be a Cat” (Instrumental)
21. The Little Mermaid – “Under The Sea” (Instrumental)
22. The Little Mermaid – “Part Of Your World” (Instrumental)
