    The article is accurate with the exception of the musical grooves but there is some truth to it. The musical roadway concept was the idea of Disney marketing cast member named Tim Sprunger who proposed the idea to be placed on World Drive. The proof of concept was installed on the abandoned runway and was made of plastic strips taped to the asphalt with gaffers tape. WDW executives would drive their cars down the runway to demonstrate it. The idea was never pursued but the rumors of the musical runway spread by word of mouth

    Word was, back in the day, the song was Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.
    The airstrip was also used for a while as a place for bus driver training and a place for staff parking during certain special events at MK.
