See your Disney Favorites at Mickey's PhilharMagic

Tucked inside Fantasyland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom is an attraction that can be easily overlooked, but is certainly not be missed!  Mickey's PhilharMagic is a perfect family friendly attraction that delights both young and old with an array of music and favorite characters from some of Disney's most popular movies.

Guests enter the attraction and wait for the doors to open to the performance.  While you are waiting to enter, don't forget to grab you "opera glasses" - this is a 3D show after all!  However, don't worry if you have little travelers that won't wear the 3D glasses, they can still enjoy the music and movie.  Our son has yet to wear the glasses and this is still one of his favorite things to do.

Trying on our "opera glasses" before the start of Mickey's PhilharMagic.
The movie begins with Donald Duck finding Mickey's sorcerer's hat on the orchestra stage.  When Donald places the hat on his head, he is transported into a number of Disney movies where he stars alongside some familiar favorites.  Along the way, Lumiere invites him to "Be Our Guest," he finds out why Simba "Just Can't Wait to Be King," and experiences "A Whole New World" with Aladdin and Jasmine - just to name a few!  At the end, Donald finds his way back to the orchestra and Mickey resumes his place as the rightful conductor.  Of course, in true Disney spirit, there is one final surprise at the end!

As a child who was raised on the golden age of early 1990s Disney movie musicals, this is a journey back to my childhood and a chance to share some oldies but goodies with my own kids.  Besides the fact that this is a wonderful musical experience, it's also a great place to get inside and cool off on hot Florida days.  FastPass+ is available for this show, but don't waste one it.  A great perk of this show is that it runs continuously and you rarely ever wait more than one show for your chance to enter. 

Now, on with the show!
