Disney News : ‘Mickey and the Magical Map’ Opening May 25 at Disneyland
Mickey Mouse and some of his most magical friends are embarking on exciting musical
adventures in the all new Mickey and the Magical Map live show that opens next month in the newly
refurbished Fantasyland Theater at Disneyland.
In the show, the sorcerer Yen Sid directs his singing and dancing Mapmakers to paint a map that is capable of taking dreamers to any place imaginable. And, once again, sorcerer’s apprentice Mickey Mouse lets his curiosity get the best of him and he allows the map’s magical powers to take him – and the audience – on a journey of imagination with the Mapmakers.
This journey is set to an original song, “Journey of the Imagination,” along with music from classic Disney films. Other Disney characters will make appearances during the show including King Louie, Pocahontas, Mulan, Rapunzel and Flynn Ryder, Princess Tiana, and Sebastian.
“Each new show we create is a chance to push storytelling in a new direction,” said Michael Jung, Theatrical Development Executive, Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment. “At Disney,
we love the challenge of continuously looking at our classic tales and most recent stories to see how
we can bring live entertainment and excitement to today’s audiences.”

Time to brush up on your pirate skills! A new interactive game is headed to the Magic Kingdom this spring where park guests will have a chance to be a pirate recruit for Captain Jack Sparrow
A Pirate’s Adventure: Treasures of the Seven Seas takes guests on a pirate-themed quest to save Adventureland, while trying to find the Treasures of the Seven Seas and fight off pirate enemies.
