The large Fantasyland Theater at Disneyland Park has been home to various shows in year past. For the past few years though, it hadn’t been so instead being home to princess meet-and-greets. The whole complex has been closed for a couple of months now with renovations and updates already taking place to bring live shows back into the theater and today, Disneyland has released more information on what that show will be!
Titled ‘Mickey and the Magical Map,’ the show begins with a sorcerer named “Yen Sid” (or ‘Disney’ spelled backwards) who tells of a map that takes dreamers to magical places. Unfortunately, the map isn’t finished so it is the task of the younger sorcerer Mickey Mouse to paint the last part.
Then BAM. Magic ensues and the rest of the show goes one featuring various Disney characters and music from all over the Disney universe that all tell the mystery of the map’s magic.
Seem pretty interesting? We think so, but hopefully there’s some dramatic moments in this show. We feel that they’ve been lacking in past shows (i.e. World of Color).
Show opening is slated for sometime this Summer (UPDATE – a source from Disneyland is saying that the show may be ready in late May or early June)!
** UPDATE 3/13 – Disneyland announced that the show’s opening date will be on Saturday, May 25! **

What do you all think of this new show and its concept so far? Should there be more to the magic than just…magic? Let us know in the comments below!
