On my recent day trip to Walt Disney World, after checking out the new Frozen Ever After and Soarin’ Around the World at Epcot, I hopped over to the Magic Kingdom to check out the new castle show, Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire. This new show replaced Dream Along with Mickey which had a 10 year run on the Castle Forecourt Stage.
About Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire
“Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” immerses guests in a 23-minute royal musical celebration on the Cinderella Castle stage at Magic Kingdom Park. Mickey Mouse and his pals unite in a tale of friendship featuring songs and characters from Disney’s contemporary classics “Princess and the Frog,” “Tangled” and “Frozen.”
“In ‘Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire,’ 15 Disney characters from different stories come together to showcase how diversity and the discoveries you make through friendships shape who you are,” said Show Director, Walt Disney World Entertainment, Tara Anderson.
From the land of the bewitching bayous, Goofy has invited Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen to add a little spice of New Orleans jazz to the party.
Donald Duck brings some new friends he met in the land of the enchanted woods, where Daisy Duck introduces us to her special guests, Rapunzel and Flynn. Finally, Mickey Mouse shares a surprise with Minnie Mouse, as he has traveled to the land of the mystic mountains to invite Olaf, Princess Anna, and Queen Elsa, who swirls a blast of her icy magic.
The celebration culminates in a grand dance, marked by a magical daytime fireworks finale.
Mom Maven’s Thoughts
I thoroughly enjoyed the Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire, as did the rest of the audience around me. It is nice to see a show with characters from newer Disney movies mingling with the Fab 5. The storyline is engaging and relevant without being preachy. I love that there are “thugs and ruffians” helping to represent “Tangled” along with Rapunzel and Flynn (Eugene). Of course, any time guests get to see Anna, Elsa and Olaf, the crowd goes wild. The show is performed several times a day. Check your times guide or My Disney Experience app for showtimes.
If you can’t get to the Magic Kingdom any time soon, my friend, BigFatPanda has a wonderful video of the entire show. If you would like to see the show in person, Email me.
