This is going to be on everyone's wishlist this Christmas! Walt Disney Records is releasing The Legacy Collection Box Set which is a 12-Album box set with the most wonderful, classic Disney soundtracks that we all know and love. This will be released on November 13th, 2015 and is already available for pre-order.
I wasn't able to snag the actual box set, but I do have each album in the box set it is absolutely beautiful. I am absolutely in awe of the artwork on each album. I love how the newly created artwork gives you a new perspective on each film's soundtrack. What's really special about the artwork is that the designs unite the entire collection.
So, these CDs include the incredible songs that we all know and love, as well as music from the Disneyland Park! That's so unique and special. It really excites me because I just visited Disneyland for the first time in September. You can literally listen to more than a day's worth of music with this box set. Frankly, who wouldn't want to listen to Disney soundtracks all day? My house has been sprinkled with Pixi Dust and filled with magic from this collection.
Whether you're shopping for yourself, a collector, a child, or even a family, this Disney box set would be an incredible gift. It will be cherished by anyone who adds it to their home. I couldn't imagine a Disney gift better than this one and that's why I recommend that you snatch these up as soon as the release. Grab this 12 album, 28 disc Disney collection before it's gone!
