Walt Disney Animation Studios (WDAS) Audio Commentaries
#1
Music 
I spent the last weeks putting together the most Disney commentaries I could find. They're all .ac3 and seem to be untouched. You can download them to use in projects or just for completeness sake. In some cases (The Little Mermaid and Aladdin) I had to use DVD sources from previous editions because Disney changed the original logo in the BD.

Here's the list of each audio commentary uploaded (the source is in the file name):

Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs - animation historian John Canemaker, with archival audio excerpts by Walt Disney

Pinocchio - film critic Leonard Maltin, Disney animator Eric Goldberg, and Disney historian J.B. Kaufman, with archival audio excerpts by animators Ward Kimball, Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston, and Eric Larson

Fantasia - animation historian John Canemaker, with archival audio excerpts by Walt Disney
Fantasia - Roy E. Disney, conductor James Levine, and restoration supervisor Scott MacQueen
Fantasia - Disney historian Brian Sibley

Dumbo - animation historian John Canemaker
Dumbo - Pixar director Pete Docter, Disney historian Paula Sigman, and Disney animator Andreas Deja, with archival audio excerpts by writers Dick Huemer and Joe Grant, animators Ward Kimball, and Wolfgang Reitherman, sound designer Jim MacDonald, and layout artist Ken O’Conner

Peter Pan - Roy E. Disney, animation historian Jeff Kurtti, with archival audio excerpts by Walt Disney, animators Frank Thomas, Ollie Johnston, Marc Davis, and Ward Kimball, live-action reference model Margaret Kerry, voice actor/live-action reference model Kathryn Beaumont, film historian Leonard Maltin, and animation historian John Canemaker

Sleeping Beauty - Disney historian Leonard Maltin, Pixar director John Lasseter, Disney animator Andreas Deja, with archival audio excerpts by Walt Disney, production designer Eyvind Earle, and supervising animators Marc Davis, Ollie Johnston, and Frank Thomas

The Jungle Book - composer/song-writer Richard M. Sherman, supervising pencil animator Andreas Deja and voice actor Bruce Reitherman, with archival audio excerpts by director Wolfgang Reitherman, directing animators Ollie Johnson and Frank Thomas, and co-screenwriter Larry Clemmons

The Little Mermaid - writers/directors Ron Clements and John Musker, and composer Alan Menken

Beauty and the Beast - producer Hahn, directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale, with archival audio excerpts by composer Alan Menken

The Emperor's New Groove - producer Randy Fullmer, director Mark Dindal, art director Colin Stimpson, character designer Joseph C. Moshier, story supervisor Stephen Anderson, and supervising animators Nik Ranieri and Bruce W. Smith

Atlantis: The Lost Empire - producer Don Hahn and directors Kirk Wise & Gary Trousdale

Treasure Planet - directors Ron Clements and John Musker, producer Roy Conli, supervising animators Glen Keane and John Ripa, associate art director Ian Gooding

Brother Bear - characters Rutt (Rick Moranis) and Tuke (Dave Thomas)

Home on the Range - producer Alice Dewey, director Will Finn and director John Sanford

Chicken Little - director Mark Dindal, producer Randy Fullmer and visual effects supervisor Steve Goldberg

Meet the Robinsons - director Stephen J. Anderson

The Princess and the Frog - co-writers/directors Ron Clements and John Musker, producer Peter Del Vecho

Moana - directors Ron Clements and John Musker (2017 Blu-Ray)

Bonus: Tangled (from The Animation Podcast) - Amy Smeed, Adam Dykstra, Jennifer Hager, Miyuki Kanno-Long, Adam Green, Daniel Peixe, John Wong, Zach Parrish, Marlon Nowe, Doug Bennett, Joel Reid, Mark Mitchell, Kira Lehtomaki, Patrick Osborne, Darrin Butters, Becky Bresee, Chris Cordingly, Chadd Ferron, Clay Kaytis, John Kahrs, Chad Sellers, Jason Figliozi, and Malcon Pierce

In case you didn't noticed I also uploaded an unofficial commentary (in mp3) for Tangled made in 2012 by some animators who worked on it for a podcast.

Unfortunally I couldn't find every one of them, so if anyone here have it or could capture it, here's the list of missing commentaries and where to find them:

Sleeping Beauty - Disney historian Jeff Kurtti, with archival audio excerpts by production designer/background artist Eyvind Earle, voice actor Mary Costa, supervising animators Ollie Johnston and Marc Davis, background artist Frank Armitage, Pocahontas director Mike Gabriel, and Pocahontas art designer Michael Giaimo (2003 DVD)

Pocahontas - producer James Pentecost, co-directors Mike Gabriel & Eric Goldberg, composer Alan Menken, lyricist Stephen Schwartz, art director Michael Giaimo, and co-writer Carl Binder (1996 Laserdisc)

Lilo & Stitch - writers/directors Chris Sanders and Dean DeBlois and producer Clarke Spencer (2009 "Big Top Edition" DVD or 2013 "Two Movie Collection" BD)

Also, Tarzan, The Emperors New Groove and Meet The Robinsons are sourced from PAL DVDs, so a little tweak in the audio will be necessary unless someone find their NTSC DVD counterparts (or BD, on "Robinsons"' case)
