【tdr0280】The station using Disney song as train departure melody

0280

Train departure melody differs on each station and the song that related to the local.

For example, Maihama station that is located at Tokyo Disney Resort uses “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” for platform 1 and “It’s A Small World” for platform 2 since 2004, June 14th.

Also, the song changes temporary on special occasion that from 2008, April 15th to 2009, April 14th, which was the year of celebrating 25th year used “The Dream Goes On” (with arrangement o first line) for platform1 and “The Dream Goes On” (with arrangement on chorus) for platform 2 and when celebrating 30th year, which was from 2013, April 11th to 2014, March 21st used “Happiness is Here” (with arrangement on chorus) for platform 1 and “Happiness is Here” (with arrangement on first line).

Maihama station used Disney songs for train departure melody, because it is located at Tokyo Disney Resort, but there is another station using Disney song other than Maihama station.

That station is Oimachi station.

Many people uses this station who are going to Tokyo Disney Resort from Tokyo waterfront city like Odaiba or transferring to Keiyo line from Shin-kiba station. The reason Oimachi station using Disney song as train departure melody isn’t because “many people who are going to Tokyo Disney Resort use this station”.

The real reason is this station is the nearest station of “Shiki theatre [Summer]”, which is dedicated theatre of Shiki Theatre Company.

Although it is because Shiki Theatre Company has Disney production in their repertoire, so during the period of “Beauty and the Beast” performance, which was 2011, June 21st to 2013, January 27th “Be Our Guest” was used as inbound platform train departure melody and “Beauty and the Beast” was used of outbound platform.

Also, during the performance of “Little Mermaid”, which was from 2013, October 25th used “Under the Sea” for inbound platform and “Part of Your World” for outbound platform.

People tend to think Oimachi station has no relation with Disney, but it is certainly has relation with Disney.
