Disneyland

People who ask me for ‘which ride should I go on first’ when they visit Disneyland, are always a little surprised when I encourage them to plan some of their day around the great shows and entertainment found all over The Disney Resort.  This summer, at the Fantasyland Theater in Disneyland is a fun, fresh and technology rich show that is worth every second of your time. No extra tickets needed- just show up, grab a seat and watch this fun musical revue entertain you and the kids.

Here is a video which includes some great clips of the show-so you can see for yourself!

 
 
 
Oh um, before you watch- my face looks like a lego head and kinda blown up. That is a result of this (more on it later)…but please be gentle and don’t laugh : )

Why yes, that IS a riverboat on stage. Only Disney makes it seem normal.  IMG_1131[1]

And just for fun, I thought I would share these after hours photos I took while exiting the park on this evening…I swear you can almost feel Walt here when it is like this…

If you haven’t been to Disneyland or Disney California Adventure lately- I encourage you to go. And while you are there, slow down a bit and take in the magic of shows like Mickey’s Magical Map, the new Fantasy Faire experience or my all time favorite- The Billy’s in the Golden Horseshoe Revue.  For more information on all of these live shows- and many more throughout the parks- visit here -and get ready to be entertained!
