When I found out that this month's theme was "Favorite Attraction Music," my first thought was how much I love the theme music in Innoventions Plaza. As in, I've requested it on Sorcerer Radio before. It's my favorite piece of music in all of WDW. But Innoventions isn't really an attraction, per se, so my vote passes to a completely different park.
When Disney first announced that they were building an Aerosmith-themed roller coaster, the general reaction was one of confusion. Aerosmith? As in, The Bad Boys of Boston? In a Disney park? On paper, it sounds silly. Yet somehow, it all works.
I'm obviously talking about Rock 'n' Roller Coaster at Disney's Hollywood Studios, a ride where, as the name suggests, music is part of the experience. Beyond the queue that takes guests through the offices as G Force Records (including everyone's favorite celebrity pre-show), Rock 'n' Roller Coaster is literally a moving boombox. Speakers are positioned right into the headrests so that guests are rockin' from start to finish. And if Steven Tyler screaming in your ear doesn't wake you up, going from 0 - 60 mph in less than three seconds will.
Imagineering aside, I've always been a huge Aerosmith fan, especially since I'm also a New Englander, which basically (in my head) makes me an honorary member. And my first real adult (read: non boy-band) concert was an Aerosmith one, when I was about 16 years old. The seats were great, the music was loud, and the arena was rockin'. And when you add that excitement into a WDW thrill ride, you get a match made in Disney heaven.
