I was thrilled to get the New Walt Disney Records Legacy Collection Box Set. This is an amazing collection of 12 albums. The beginning of this collection made me feel like a child again, as the introduction from the opening day of Disneyland in 1955 starts off, I got chills. This is a beautiful box set of so many fabulous songs and music from all of my favorite Disney movies. I was excited to sit with our little ones and let them listen along with me, as I took a stroll down memory lane spanning a half a century with the New Walt Disney Records Legacy Collection. I love that each album also has a hardcover book to include a beautiful visual account of each film. I like that there is so much I had never heard before and enjoyed with my whole family. This box set is a treasure that would make a wonderful gift for any family.
