OK so this thread is all about the brand new shows going on at MK in celebration of the Year of a Million Dreams. Please feel free to submit your own reviews here as you all get to see them over the next 15 months.
Let’s start with Woody’s Cowboy Camp:
Very fun idea. Much like the Hoe-Down at MK during the afternoons. Woody, Jessie and Bullseye lead a group of cowboys and cowgirls down the streets of Frontierland with a singing cowboy who’s name I forget. Many old west songs that teach you the ways of being a cowboy. The kids get to ride stick “horses” with Bullseye and all participate. Would’ve liked to see it a little longer plus it’s not in the times guides so you pretty much have to run into the show. But really cute. 7 out of 10.
Let’s Have a Ball:
As the cowboy camp is for the boys mostly, LHAB is mostly for girls, but again, ALL participate and have fun. 3 Royal Court Ball-Throwers, with one in particular named Simon, demonstrate with their boss, Lady Lucinda, how to throw a great party to start the “Happily Ever After” for each Princess. Afterwards, Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip themselves show up to dance with the guests in celebration! Didn’t expect much, but got more than I bargained for. 8 out of 10.
Main Street Family Fun Day Parade:
Pluto, Chip, Dale, Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow lead guests with many other citizens of Main Street down in a huge parade with all guests able to participate and play along and ending in a huge meet and greet at the end. Not much to this, but a GREAT interactive parade. Plus, come on, it’s Horace and Clarabelle, 2 of the ORIGINAL gang from Mickey’s very early years. 6 of 10.
High School Musical Pep Rally:
Get your head in the game cause I LOVED THIS SHOW!!! Members of East High show up in Tomorrowland to get you pumped up and rockin for the big game! Songs and dances from the movie interwine this great short show. Kids young and old were singing EVERY word and dancing EVERY single step to the show. Never have I seen such audience participation. It was beautiful. 10 of 10!
Dream-A-Long with Mickey:
Ah, the new castle show, and with a plot!!! Mickey, Minnie, Donald and Goofy show up with dream dancers, and Mickey brings a surprise, dreams for everyone. But Donald doesn’t believe in dreams, or their power, so it’s up to the others to show how great dreams are, whether it’s Minnie wanting to be a princess, or Goofy a pirate! But the dreams start to turn into nightmares when Maleficent shows up! Can the gang use the power of dreams to turn her away?
The music, the costumes, the plot, everything was so wonderful and new with this show. Although a little too similar at times to Cinderella’s Surprise Celebration, but you only see her for a brief moment, as the show focuses more on the characters than anyone else. The show I went to also had some pyro technical probs, but that aside, I really loved this show, and I’m sure everyone else will to. 8 out of 10.
So there you have it. These new additions are wonderful, so something to look forward to! How bout ya’ll? Oh, and If I can get some of my pics of Dream a Long on the net tonight I will.
