Welte Style 4 Orchestrion at Disneyland
By Dave Allan

The Welte Style 4 orchestrion at Disneyland is now available for
viewing.  That area [Penny Arcade] was just opened on May 2nd after an
8-month remodel.  The organ currently plays free with a 7-minute pause
between songs.  Currently it is playing only original 75-key Welte roll
music.  There are a couple of videos from last Friday on YouTube;
search for Disneyland Welte Style 4.
