Disneyland Presents Mickey and the Magical Map

Disneyland's Fantasyland Theatre is once again greeting guests with this past weekend's premier of Mickey and the Magical Map, an all new live show featuring everyone's favorite mouse as the star.

The show starts with a bit on the magical map, created by a wonderful wizard - and told through the use of giant animated screens.  Mickey joins in and decides to try to fill in out last part of the map that is not yet complete, and ends up embarking on a magical journey after being pulled into it - becoming an animated version of himself.

The 22 minute show features songs and performances from many Disney hits, including the Jungle Book, Pocahontas, Mulan, Tangled, The Little Mermaid, Lilo and Stitch and the Princess and the Frog.  The show is simple, but entertaining and it is wonderful to see a large performance back in the Fantasyland Theatre after the Princesses took over for a while.

If you'd like to check out the show, here's a video of the production from Inside the Magic.
