Walt Disney and the 1964 World's Fair box set cover
Walt Disney and the 1964 World's Fair is a 2009 five-CD box set compiling music and audio from Disney's attractions at the 1964 New York World's Fair:

The set includes a 24-page booklet about the 1964 World's Fair.

Critical reception

J. Scott McClintock of AllMusic gave the set four out of five stars, commenting, "the recordings, along with the lavishly illustrated 24-page booklet, paint an inspiring picture of the creativity and knack for innovation that the Disney 'imagineers' brought to these beloved attractions."[1]

Film critic and historian Leonard Maltin called the set "impressive" and "a treat for Disneyphiles everywhere," also noting, "[t]he audio quality is astonishing, from start to finish: you’d swear you were in the room with the actors and musicians.[2]
