“Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” taking the castle stage this summer at Magic Kingdom Park

in Disney, Entertainment, Magic Kingdom, Movies, Theme Parks, Walt Disney World

Time to celebrate, Orlando!

Disney Parks Blog just announced that a brand new live stage show will be taking over the Cinderella Castle stage at Disney’s Magic Kingdom this summer! Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire will feature characters from some of Disney’s more recent efforts such as the Princess and the Frog, Tangled, and Frozen. Lucky for park goers, the plot seems to have just enough Disney magic to appease fans both new and old:

In Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire, Mickey and his troupe of Merry Makers have been preparing to host a joyous festival and have ventured far and wide to invite friends from other lands to join their celebration. From the Land of the Bewitching Bayous, Goofy has invited Tiana, Naveen and Louis to add a little spice of New Orleans jazz to the party. From the Land of the Enchanted Woods, Donald Duck brings some new friends he met at the Snuggly Duckling, and Daisy introduces us to her special guests, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. Finally, Mickey shares a surprise with Minnie, as he has traveled to the Land of the Mystic Mountains to invite Olaf, Anna and Elsa, who contributes a blast of her icy magic. It all culminates in a grand dance, as the Merry Makers invite all their special guests to join in the fun on this special day in Magic Kingdom Park!

How fun does that sound? Super-fun, that’s how much! It was also announced that the performance will feature an original song, and special effects magic that only the happiest place on earth could provide. Make sure to be on the lookout for the show to hit the castle stage in summer 2016, and you bet we will be the first people there to tell you how it is!

Will you miss Dream Along with Mickey, or are you ready for something new? Let us know in the comments below!

    I can’t wait for the new show.

    Isn’t it presumptuous to assume this new show will replace the Dream Along with Mickey show?

    Disney didn’t make any mention of the current show either continuing or being replaced in their blog post…

    … What a political answer. Yes DAWM is going away. You think the Castle has the bandwidth for two stage shows? That happens only seasonal for Hocus Pocus and is a massive handful. Kiss DAWM good bye. It was a grand show but not what the resort needs with the facelift happening property wide.

      There is about 3 stages show in winter for christmas : DAWM, the Christmas show and the show of Elsa. Why couldn’t they do it for others season.

      Also it says this summer. Nothing says that this new show will last more than just a season.

    The new show sounds great and all. But what I ask is why are they taking Cinderella out of all the shows. First it was the holiday show now this…are they slowly trying to kick out the namesake princess of the castle?!?!?

      Think DAWM had been around since the Year of A Million Dreams, and that was what….’03??
      While I’m not sorry to see it go, it also looks like they won’t get all the Frozen out of their system until after the Epcot Norway upgrade. (And THEN it’ll officially be Over.)

      One other article pointed out that it’s all Lasseter-era WDFA characters–no 90’s, no vintage, no Brave–and that raised the question of whether they’re just happy the 00’s Renaissance has hits, or whether it’s trying to take over like the 90’s characters did during the Eisner era.
