‘Haunted Mansion Holiday,’ ‘”it’s a small world” Holiday’ Soundtracks Releasing Digitally in September

'Haunted Mansion Holiday' / 'it's a small world Holiday'After introducing several older (and current) theme park-only albums to the digital download sector this year, Walt Disney Music continues the trend with the soundtracks to two of the Disneyland Resort’s traditions — ‘Haunted Mansion Holiday‘ and ‘“it’s a small world” Holiday.’ Both soundtracks will be available beginning September 10, 2013 and are currently listed on Amazon.

Initially released in 2003, ‘Haunted Mansion Holiday‘ features the vocal talents of Corey Burton. Jack Skellington of Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas fame, who temporarily takes up residence in the parks’ classic Haunted Mansion attraction, pays tribute to several classic Christmas carols with a nightmarish twist. The album also features a recorded ride-through of the holiday overlay.
