Because this was the "Where in Disney?" challenge, information was withheld until a detailed correct answer was posted at rad.p. It never was. See spoiler below for the solution.
This WHERE IN THE WORLD is a real keeper. Either as a safe download to your music folder or listen to the MIDI file instantly, this clue is musical.
On what attraction soundtrack can you hear both W.R. McKanlass'A Bag of Ragsand Hubert "Dubie" Blake'sThe Charleston Ragtogether in their entirety in a Disney Park regularly (as opposed to live)? http://disneywizard.angelfire.com/mid/A_Bag_of_Rags-WR_McKanlass.mid http://disneywizard.angelfire.com/mid/Blake_Hubert_Eubie-Charleston_Rag_The-1917.mid http://disneywizard.angelfire.com/mid/Joplin_Scott-Great_Crush_Collision_March_The-1896.mid

And to clarify,
as opposed to live is mentioned to specifically exclude any ragtime pianists perfoming at Coke Corner, such as this one by visiting guest pianist KKad3n:
And the winner is: nobody!

Engineering and music all in one. -- Tom [and a mechanical maintenance nighmare -wiz] Like this one? http://youtu.be/28Sein4AdUE Drop a dime while waiting for the train. "Pretty Little Baby" from "Snappy Favorites" Clark roll 4X-119 on Nelson-Wiggen model 6 Orchestrion located within Main Street Station of the Disneyland Railroad, Anaheim, California. While you are thinking upon the right track, Tom, you're half a ten cent fare away - so close, but yet so far. And yet - I correct myself, many theme parks list merchandise locations as 'attractions.' (to boost/brag the count, I'm sure.) However, I'm accustomed to referring to "rides" such are Attractions,Voyages, Cruises and Adventures - while coin-operated devices refer to 'Amusements' category in the classical sense of vernacular. And just to throw a curve, the vernacular often refers erroneously to such an orchestron/player-piano and such by the misnomer 'Nickelodeon'. That wrong name is reinforced by the song "Put Another Nickel In, In the Nickelodeon" as in Dime-a-Dance - the ORIGINAL GAMESTER of paper-roll playing (snicker 'role playing' pun intended - insert groan here.) No, the device Nickelodeon is a mini-movie machine with a crank on the side which advances a rolodex, the origin of 'movie-reel,' of images (often pairs in 3D) prints with a light bulb illumination when engaged by coin - examples on Main Street U.S.A. exist of the true nickelodeon at Penny Arcade but viewed for the price of one cent. Are we confused yet? Traditional orchestrons often include pneumatically actuated percussion such as drums and a few octaves of glockenspiel/marimba/xylophone and perhaps some wooden/metal pipe organ or harmonica/accordion - occasionally up to four grand scale instruments (limited by the paper-roll width.) with about half of the popular models including 40 or 48 piano notes. Although the scroll punching was not compatible with player or reproducing pianos found most often in parlors of residence because of the alternate instrument assignments (or adapted with disharmonic results) the roll format offered the similar ability to swap at once a dozen fresh tin-pan-ally tunes for stale, often by rotation from one pub to the next by the owner/operator of several identical machines. And it was from the type of those establishments which gave the devices a name. Orchestrons and coin-op player-pianos were common to low-rent dance-halls, providing dance tunes when cueuers/callers and musicians were absent from the 'Juke-Joint.' Nowadays we think of the Juke Box as spinning a selection of 45rpm vinyl records beneath an amplified needle behind the glass of an attractive push-button cabinet with a primitive mechanical memory for credits and selections, as one might glimpse in 'Arnold's' drive-in of 'Happy Days' nostalgic fame. The Juke Box hasn't been a slacker, maintaining pace with technology they play CDs and DVDs even Ogg-Vorbis and MP3s. While the organ-grinder (with obligatory conductor monkey) is a fine example of early human-powered automated playback, coin-op changers were initially music-box cylinders of pins replaceable at the pick of a dial knob and customer cranked spring winding power. That arrangement lent itself well to the substitution of Edison Cylinder recordings. The "Bag of Rags" (MIDI) and "Pretty Little Baby" (YouTube) examples provided are both sourced from original punched paper scrolls. Patents and the ingenuity of avoiding royalties and licensing was the mother of inventing a wide variety of musical sequencing, some flimsy, others robust. Metal disks half a meter across or so were adapted to changers where the perforations in the slowly spinning disk formed protruding hooks engaged to actuators or directly to tines of tuned forks similar to the pins on the cylinder of a music box both elaborate and child's toy. The Loof Carousel at Santa Monica Pier features one band organ (Sorry, I've forgotten the Mfg, type and model of that 'band-in-a-box') designed to play a fanfold of perforated wooden cards hinged by cord ties 'sewn' at each edge and forming a continuous loop. The Orchestron at the back of the (now candy store) Penny Arcade on Main Street U.S.A. in Disneyland (heard playing Zip-a-Dee Doo-Dah http://youtu.be/reKJbySSyn8 ) is a fancy cabinet housing an ornate articulated but faked roll mechanism example and a collection of real MIDI instruments daisy-chained to a touch-screen controller facilitating a potentially infinite catalogue of SMF (Standard MIDI Files) on MIDIoverEthernet, permitting remote software upgrades and pricing adjustment to a colorfully attractive animated kiosk which can accept a variety of payment options - coin, paper bill, credit card, (tokens, tickets - even, dare we say, a future potential of Magic My Way wristbands?) So, coin-op centric Nickelodeons are optical and historically unaccompanied while band organs, orchestrons, jukebox can be pay-for-play audio. Today's arcade amusements generally with a bright video display and speakers nearly rival touch screen fruit machines, er... slot-machines with catchy tunes and flashy attract modes, experience diminishing returns as smart mobile aps draw inspiration from them and are capturing an increasing delightful share of our recreation time (or contributing to "Waist Time" - Pintrest, Flickr, Facebook, Twitter, RAD.P, Instagram, Mice-Chat - as dipped into a pocket or purse at the moment's notice of 'wait time'.) I dare one nowadays to count while shuffling in an attraction queue, the mobiles putting 'small worlds' in our faces while replacing conversation with texting between adjacent family members, and result zero. --------------------------------------------------- Across the street a neon sign All you can eat for a dollar ninety nine Our soul stew is the baddest in the land But-a one dollar's worth was all that I could stand http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjAvBdJJbFg "Sometimes Bad is Bad" -- Huey Luis and the News ----------------------------------------------------- There once was a guy - too lucrative to die - Cal Worthington [and his 'dog' spot] who figured the finance co. wasn't struggling like the car salesmen on his lot. Cal's lesson is; BE the finance company. Whether lease or purchase, the car was just an excuse to bind a long term contract. Haven't we done that with amusement? About $30 bucks a month is enough bandwidth to keep us in Slingo. So too have we done with Disney Parks. Recently, at a traveling carnival, I balked first at the cost of admission and tickets, then at the ticket quantity per attraction. Even an aging favorite of mine, Zipper, worked out to $6 a head (btw Gravitron is never worth the discount.) So a hundred bucks to enter a Disney Park divided by the five or six 'E coupon' in a day averages among families to between $10 and $25 each turnstile pass. -- All ladders in the Temple of the Forbidden Eye have thirteen steps.

"Where can you hear W.R. McKanlass "A Bag of Rags" in a Disney Park regularly (as opposed to live)?" What attraction is half a ten cent fare away from Main Street Station on a trolley track? C'mon, folks you're really not trying because the soundtracks heard http://disneywizard.angelfire.com/mid/A_Bag_of_Rags-WR_McKanlass.mid and http://disneywizard.angelfire.com/mid/Blake_Hubert_Eubie-Charleston_Rag_The-1917.mid while 1. Not a restaurant 2. Not a shop 3. Completely, every note in it's entirety, as portion of an attraction soundtrack. and there are very few Main Street U.S.A. attractions with music, most are vehicles (the ten cent fare clue) the Opera House and Main Street Cinema, and the Opera House is full fare or no fare to town square, you're already there. I wasn't certain whether or not Scott Joplin's The Great Crush Collision March which I vaguely recall. I am truly surprised no one nailed the only attraction with competing soundtracks - Steamboat Willy and the accompaniment to the other five screens in Main Street Cinema! ----- Original Message ----- From: DisneyWizard the Fantasmic!
