A new show debuted at the Disneyland Resort this weekend featuring twenty song-and-dance filled minutes featuring flight-themed songs from decades past. Minnie’s Fly Girls Charter Airline stars a group of flight attendants, an air traffic controller, and Minnie Mouse herself, taking place on a fairly nondescript stage within the Condor Flats area of the Disney California Adventure theme park.
The show includes popular hits sung live from the ’40s, ’50s, and ’60s, such as “Come Fly with Me,” originally performed by Frank Sinatra, “Straighten up and Fly Right” by Nat King Cole, “Brazil,” “I Love Paris,” “Lady of Spain,” and a Disney “Flying Medley” featuring familiar songs from Mary Poppins, Dumbo, and Peter Pan. Despite the show’s name, Minnie only appears at the tail end of the performance, landing just in time for the final number, posing with guests in a meet-and-greet afterward. But she steals the show, with her eyelids fluttering and lips moving – a first for Minnie at the Disneyland Resort. (Unfortunately for those wanting to have a conversation with her, Minnie doesn’t talk with guests after the show, saving her voice for each musical number.)
You can see Minnie’s Fly Girls Charter Airline now at Disney California Adventure, performed several times daily – or you can watch the full show video below, shot for us by Jeremiah Daws.
