There is some lovely classical music happening while I wait for the call to begin. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 10:54AM
The first 20 minutes will be exclusively will Alan Menken. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 10:58AM
Coolness indeed :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7223.1 #8 11:01AM
Jeffrey Epstein from D23 is speaking. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:08AM
Q: Can you talk about the Disney Songbook and what you're most looking forward to playing on Saturday? A: The great thing about Disney songs is that they all live in a context. the ones i grew up with are the ones that most stick with me, like pinocchio. like i've got no strings. your mother and mine from dumbo. it's hard to differentiate them because they were so part of the movies they were part of. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:10AM
he's now singing some of "be like you" from jungle book. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:10AM
Ooooooooooooo :-) - uscdisneyteacher  7223.1 #8 11:12AM
I think you mean 'ooo bee doo'. πŸ˜‚ - MeridaFan  3441.0 #28 1:37PM
what is it about the disney songbook that catches people? a: for me, it's the fact that they're tied so specifically to movie. they're not just songs that they slide in randomly. the disney songbook, each song really encapsulates the movie, a different character, a different era, a different time in a person's life. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:12AM
a: there's no cynicism in the disney songbook. there's heartfelt storytelling in these songs. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:13AM
q: what's it like to perform in front of people who eat, sleep, and breathe disney? a: it's great fun. it's a shared experience. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:14AM
a: there's a lack of cynicism with the D23 audience. they're there to love it. no one's sitting there with their arms folded. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:14AM
q: when you're writing a disney song do you feel you have to approach it differently? a: the process for me is very much the process of writing a musical. disney has been the studio that has been the most supportive of writing songs in that way. where the difference comes in in it being disney is a sense of responsibility to convey the message of the song and approach to storytelling. this is an audience that will embrace what you do and take it to heart entirely. so you kinda have to cherish the audience as you write these songs and care about them. the disney tradition is a #1 great america tradition. you don't wanna cross lines. you wanna poke fun but you don't wanna poke fun in a way that's hurtful. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:17AM
a: we're among the writers telling how are we gonna tell the story through song? we're very involved. you wanna make sure the audience is very clear what the songs are going to do. sometimes they're very tongue-in-cheek like in enchanted and aladdin...making sure the attitude is clear and the genre is clear. "oh, i get it! you're doing a maurice chavleir number but it's for a candlestick!" - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:19AM
q: is there any fanboy nervousness about performing with him? a: richard is such a nice man! he's been an extraordinarily supportive presence in my life ever since i started at disney. he was just welcoming and generous and warm. i consider richard sherman to be a dear friend and i'm really looking forward to the two of us performing. i presume we're gonna have a lot of fun. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:21AM
q: obscure disney song you're most proud of? a: i'm proud of "will the sun ever shine again?" i wrote that around 9/11 and it captured the emotion of us and the studio. i loved "the gospel truth". i think that song was a lot of fun. "if i never knew you". we lost it the first time around, we got it back. i think it's a very emotional song that i'm very proud of. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:23AM
richard is now on the line with alan!!!!! - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:24AM
q: was it difficult trying to select certain songs for the concert? a: it's always a challenge picking out just the right material. we did have some requests from our hosts. maybe the biggest challenge is which of the unknown songs so i wanna do? r: we have so many to choose from. what we try to do is a potpurri...a sampling of various things over the years. it's like looking at all my children and figuring out which one you will take on an outing. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:26AM
sherman and menken say there won't be many "little known" songs at the D23 expo concert. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:29AM
r: there's a couple of things i'm looking forward to coming to stage. jungle book is on its feet! i have a couple of other things but i don't wanna talk too much until it's a reality. a: it would be neat to see hercules. we're working on a cruise ship version of tangled. enchanted, again. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:30AM
r: when we did poppins people asked which is the song that's gonna take off? i remember my brother saying the one that's gonna take off is "stay awake" *chuckles* - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:32AM
a: during little mermaid we thought "kiss the girl" would be our single. "part of your world" we almost lost. r: i love that song. beautiful. just beautiful. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:33AM
a: we both are a part of a very exclusive club. r: we both have long histories with the disney company. i was lucky to work with the genius himself, walt disney.i always felt honored that i was working for his company...walt set a high standard for us. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:37AM
favourite song the other has done? a: supercala, but there could not have been an under the sea without a supercala. the exuberance and catchiness of it gets in your system. r: the song that gets to me more than i think "suddenly seymour" and "part of your world" gets to me. it just really does. if you just try to pick one it's impossible. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:40AM
q: what are you looking forward to at the D23 expo? r: there's a world of wonderful wonderful experiences to see at that exhibit. i know we'll be watching and looking at a lot of things. a: there'll be a lot of friends there. r: experience the joy that'll be exuberated by all the people. a: EXUBERATED??? r: you like that? a: I DO! - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:43AM
r: this man can carry on a wonderful tradition. this team: alan menken and howard ashen. a: there was a graciousness and generosity in richard that's unique in our business. it's truly unique. it's something until my dying day i will cherish. it's something you sense in his songs but it's there in the man. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:45AM
now just time with Richard Sherman!!!! - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:46AM
q: which of your songs do you feel was the most challenging to develop and why? r: everytime it's a blank page it's a mess and a challenge. i think we were trying to top a song we had done in poppins. we were trying to top a pre-song. we were told this song wouldn't work, it needed pep in it. we were trying to come up with a slogan, like a stitch in time saves nine or an apple a day keeps the doctor away. my brother's son jeff came home from school one day and said he had to take medicine. he asked "did it hurt?" and he said "no, they put the medicine on a cube of sugar" - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:49AM
R: it doesn't take much to give love and smile. Walt got it immediately. giving one's self and it doesn't take much to do that. that's why i love feed the birds. it was Walt's favourite. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:51AM
r: you write what's appropriate and every job is a challenge...when we first say animatronics coming up in something called the enchanted tiki room we came up with a little calypso number called "the tiki tiki room"...you have to write a song that sounds like them. everything is its own challenge whether it be a building, a character, or a marvelous make believe character like mary poppins. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:53AM
Richard confirms he'll be performing both attractions and movies music on Saturday! - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:54AM
"i have a good time." -richard on the secret of his longevity - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:56AM
r: 90% of the songs that we wrote for disney films were written for the characters in the screenplay, in the story. 5 or 10 percent would have been that we knew maurice chevalier would be cast and write for him...we wrote for mary poppins to sing, not for julie andrews to sing." - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 11:58AM
at the concert: first, richard will play then alan. at the end both will come together and talk about their roots and play songs that are very special to them. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 12:00PM
Richard Sherman: disney fans already know but there's a wonderful thing about being positive instead of negative. both alan and i have been blessed to be chored with writing upbeat things...with good will in them. we've both been blessed with that. there's nothing cynical in our work. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 12:03PM
Thanks everyone for following. Both men are an absolute delight who have nothing but amazing things to say about the other and who truly revel in the optimism that Disney and Disney fans love. - nicoleface  1749.9 #76 12:05PM

I've never done a mousewait meet up... Where do I go... - Disneygrl35  2.1 #56012 12:50PM
If you're there today, you can make HandMeAChurroImmaFaint 'S POTC meetup at 6 pm. Usually they will gather across from the ride entrance. Perhaps along the fence area of the Riverbelle Terrace. Look for a fairly large group of fun-loving people. Many will have their mouse ears on. Your hostess, Ms Churro, will be leading the way. Just dive right in and ask, 'excuse me. Is this the Mousewait meetup?'  You won't be sorry!  Disneygrl35 - MeridaFan  3441.0 #28 2:09PM
Thanks so much for the info MeridaFan!!!😊😊 - Disneygrl35  2.1 #56012 2:19PM
We are meeting at the Petrified tree in Frontierland- to the left of the Mark Twain Riverboat entrance. Thanks MeridaFan😘😘 - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint  4480.0 #20 4:45PM
