In this episode, the Mouse Lounge takes in a languorous, lazy summer day…at 55 miles per hour of course.

 Each week, in From the Vault we sample a clip from a classic Disney film, short, television or radio program, or Disneyland Record.   In 1963 Walt Disney Productions released the feature film Summer Magic, starring Hayley Mills, Burl Ives, and Dorothy McGuire in a story about a Boston widow and her children taking up residence in a small town in Maine. The film was based on the book "Mother Carey's Chickens" by Kate Douglas Wiggin.  The film was Mills' fourth of six films for Disney, and the young actress received a Golden Globe nomination for her work.

 The soundtrack from the picture yielded some very good songs, including the Richard Sherman composition, the Ugly Bug Ball; which went on to be a popular song that year.  Two other cuts on the record however will be of interest to Disney Park fans.  Flitterin’ and Beautiful Beulah can often be heard in instrumental form as you stroll down Main Street USA.  Now have a listen to these familiar melodies, complete with their original lyrics.

 From the Walt Disney Archives:  On the evening of June 25th, D23 members gathered at the Walt Disney Theater on the Disney Studios lot in Burbank to witness a once in a lifetime event.  Dave Smith, Chief Archivist for the Walt Disney Company celebrated his and it’s 40th anniversary!  While tinged with just the slightest bit of sadness with the fresh reveal Dave will be retiring in October; the evening was a celebration in the truest sense.  Disney luminaries such as CEO Bob Iger, composer Richard Sherman, and Imagineers Tony Baxter and Bob Gurr, were in attendance.

 Leonard Maltin interviewed Dave during the occasion.  We present the entirety of that interview here.

 Each week we present a high definition ride-through from a Disney Park East or a Disney Park West.   This week, summer isn’t complete without the rush of a roller coaster and fireworks.  In DCA’s Paradise Pier, take a ride on California Screamin’!  Then, let’s cross the esplanade and take in Magical!, Disney’s Nightastic fireworks spectacular.  This is a Mouse Lounge Re-mix, so should be extra fun with the sounds of a very enthusiastic summer crowd in the background.

 We'll close this week’s show with audio from an attraction you can only see online.  You’ll hear more about it coming up.  Have a listen to the World of Color Roadshow.
