But that’s not all!

Disney also announced today that Mickey’s Friendship Faire will be returning to Magic Kingdom! But this Friendship Faire is all-new, reimagined for the 50th anniversary celebration at Walt Disney World!

Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire will debut at Cinderella Castle on February 25. According to Disney Parks Blog, the new show will have lots of fun and surprises for Guests of all ages:

“[Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire] will incorporate favorite scenes inspired by Frozen, Tangled, and The Princess and the Frog – plus a new opening and a new finale with Mickey Mouse and all his friends in their sparkling, EARidescent fashions. Presented multiple times a day, the show will also include an all-new, original song entitled ‘Where the Magic Feels Like Home.'”

We can’t wait to experience all the new entertainment coming to Magic Kingdom in February and March. It really is the Most Magical Celebration on Earth!

About Becky Burkett

I'm an enthusiastic writer who finds joy in random things like cold weather, snow, "I Love Lucy," "The Andy Griffith Show," journals full of blank paper, countdowns to Christmas, the month of December, "Toy Story," "Sleeping Beauty," my 4 kids, my 4 shih tsus, Disney Parks history, Imagineering and visiting the parks. I think Walt Disney is the standard against which genius should be measured. I love to write about Disney Parks, Disney history, all things Imagineering and PIXAR. I adore the colors, story and art direction of Disney's "Sleeping Beauty" (Team Make it Blue!), and "Toy Story" is life (minus "Toy Story 4"). I believe Walt Disney was so much more than an entertainment and theme park tycoon; I believe he was a savant with a vision for life and how it could be if happiness and kindness are strived for. I love Biergarten at EPCOT and 1900 Park Fare at Disney's Grand Floridian. You can find me croonin' with the birdies at the Enchanted Tiki Room, chillin' on the PeopleMover or hangin' with Woody and the gang at Toy Story Land. I'm always looking for Imagineers in the parks, and I'd rather meet Joe Rohde and Tony Baxter than anyone in Hollywood! Hey, if you dream it, you really can do it!
