The curtain is about to rise on a 3-D movie musical that you simply can’t miss! The Disney Parks Blog announced today that Mickey’s PhilharMagic is coming to Disney California Adventure park, premiering in April at the Sunset Showcase Theater in Hollywood Land. The attraction is a fan favorite at Magic Kingdom park in Walt Disney World Resort, where it made its debut in 2003, as well as at Hong Kong Disneyland, Tokyo Disneyland, and Disneyland Paris, where it opened in 2005, 2011, and 2018, respectively.
Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and other favorite characters take the stage for an experience that immerses the audience in a magical, musical adventure set in the fantastic world of classic Disney animated musical sequences from films such as Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Peter Pan, and Aladdin. In Mickey’s PhilharMagic, Donald is preparing the orchestra for Mickey when he comes across the conductor’s baton, as well as a certain sorcerer’s hat. Before Donald knows it, he’s magically transported to a 3-D dream world—and we get to join the fun, too. Keep an ear out for some of the most beloved songs in Disney animation history, along with two Disney Legends, as Donald’s dialogue features classic performances from Clarence “Ducky” Nash, the original voice of Donald, and Tony Anselmo, who currently voices our feathered friend.
The new attraction is just one of the many ways to celebrate 90 years of Mickey magic at Disneyland Resort, where Get Your Ears On—A Mickey and Minnie Celebration is under way. From the all new Mickey’s Mix Magic nighttime projection show and Mickey’s Soundsational Parade, to festive foods—which, of course, taste better when they’re shaped like Mickey—and merchandise.
Be sure to stay tuned to D23 for more details as they’re announced. Our toes are already tapping with excitement.
