Disney World drops CD machines

ORLANDO, Fla., Oct. 14 (UPI) -- Chalk up another loss of a bygone era as Walt Disney World closes an obscure attraction that burned old Disney music from a gentler time on to CDs.

The Orlando Sentinel reported Saturday that tucked away in the corners of Walt Disney World were "Wonderland" machines where for $15.99, customers could burn copies of albums that featured Burl Ives, Annette Funicello, Mary Martin and Fess Parker.

But the machines weren't carrying their weight, a Disney spokesman told the Sentinel, although he admitted that they were not publicized.

Nathan Rose, who maintains the Website Magicalmountain.net, said Disney insiders informed him that the company pulled the machines after deciding they could make more money selling the music on the iTunes Internet music service run by Apple.
