Dazzling New Live Show ‘Mickey and the Magical Map’ Opens May 25 in Fantasyland Theatre at Disneyland Park

Beginning Saturday, May 25, Mickey Mouse will embark on a series of amazing adventures through the magical powers of a sorcerer’s map in “Mickey and the Magical Map,” the all-new live show coming to the Fantasyland Theatre in Disneyland Park.

“Mickey and the Magical Map” is designed for Disneyland guests of all ages and represents Disney storytelling at its most thrilling.

The show presents Mickey in his timeless role as the sorcerer’s apprentice. Sorcerer Yen Sid sets his Mapmakers to work and the ensemble cast of male and female performers paints a wondrous map – capable of taking dreamers to any place imaginable and so large it spans the entire stage of Fantasyland Theatre.

Apprentice Mickey lets his curiosity get the better of him and he stumbles upon the map’s magical powers which take him, along with the audience, on a fantastic journey of imagination in the company of the Mapmakers. The journey, presented through stunning theatrical wizardry, reveals fantastic worlds of music, color, adventure and beloved characters with each new direction.

Heading east leads Mickey and the audience to a swinging adventure with the coolest of jungle beasts, King Louie. Looking to the west, audiences will be inspired by the dreams of brave storybook heroines Pocahontas, Mulan and Rapunzel. The journey north leads to a celebration of life “Under the Sea,” and a trip south takes the audience on a “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride.”

“Mickey and the Magical Map” will be a highlight of 2013 at the Disneyland Resort, which also features such recent additions as princess encounters in the new Fantasy Faire in Disneyland, and the spectacular new Cars Land and Buena Vista Street areas in the expanded Disney California Adventure Park.
