yeah by all reports, the generic “instrumental disney song resort channels” will be going away for a more focused info channel that is resort-themed.
I’m not really a fan of doing away with the music channel because I loved hearing the instrumentals, but honestly it WAS really limping along since the reopening (maybe even before). The sound is very distorted on the main channel, the picture was cut off on some TVs, and the movie was outdated because it still showed the pre-50th park icons.
I’ll definitely miss it though. Seeing that for the first time in 2016, while a small detail, was really neat.
When it comes to change, I’m a “honor the past, celebrate the future” guy. If they are improving the channel, they could at least add the music to the new channel. Or provide a music on/off toggle. We all know Disney IT is the best and a programmer could easily make this happen…
yeah. I haven’t heard the music that will be used, but I’ve read it’s generic resort-themed music.
I would love it if they kept the instrumentals as an option to the main channel or even keep it in a separate channel that you can just turn on and let play. (which, maybe they can as cable providers have that TONS of channels just dedicated to music.)
I thought it was a cool feature but never used it. I would accept them having access to Disney+ on all resort TVs as an alternative. I’m not sure the logistics of doing that and I suspect there are some impediments.
(The interface is designed to be predictive of individual users’ preferences and save your viewing history; it might be too difficult to set up a new user for every guest? I wonder if they can have a demo version that just accesses the shows and doesn’t save any user-specific info?)
Maybe it’s because it takes me a while to wake up, but I don’t listen to music or anything in the morning. I prefer peace and calm. Maybe an ambient noise like rainfall or waves, something soothing. I start my podcasts about an hour after I wake up when my body is ready for stimuli.
Same thing in the evening - I need quiet to wind down. We watch TV around 8-10pm (at home) but once I brush, etc., I just read something before bed.
You are my twin on this! I do enjoy the music in the evenings, but never in the morning. And I hate unnecessary noise, like my kid playing weird snapchats or you tube videos with random noise. I cannot tell you how many times I say Earphones, please!
