“Crystal Wishes Journey”

Number of Performers: About 120 including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Chip, Dale, Clarice, Goofy, Max, Duffy, ShellieMay, Gelatoni, and more
Kicking off the anniversary celebration will be “Crystal Wishes Journey,” a brand new show to be presented at Mediterranean Harbor during the 15th anniversary period. In this show, the Disney Friends guided by their “Crystal of Wishes” will celebrate the start of the Guests’ journeys of adventure to make wishes shine even more.
The Disney Characters are wearing a “Crystal of Wishes,” each with a different colour that symbolizes his or her individual wish. Minnie Mouse has a red crystal which symbolizes love, Donald Duck has a blue crystal for friendship, and Goofy’s wish for energy is represented by a green crystal. Their wishes are presented to the Guests in the form of song and dance.
All the wishes form the clear crystal worn by Mickey Mouse. When Mickey wishes for the well-being of his dear friends, and to be able to continue the journey with them, the excitement builds up even more for the Disney Friends, the dancers and the Guests as everyone’s wishes come together.
In the show’s finale when everyone’s wishes combine, kites soar above Mediterranean Harbor, pyrotechnics burst out from the clear crystal at the centre of the harbour and everyone celebrates the start of new journeys for the 15th anniversary year
“Big Band Beat”
Venue: Broadway Music Theatre in American Waterfront
Number of Performers: 41 (including 13 band members) including Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Daisy Duck
This popular show presented at the Broadway Music Theatre in American Waterfront features swing jazz, which was the dominant form of popular music from the 1920s through the 1940s. “Big Band Beat” debuted in a new version, with new music, costumes and scenes. This is the first time that the show has been changed since it opened in July 2006. This revue with swing jazz by a live big band will continue to dazzle with stunning vocals, energetic tap dancing and the climactic drum performance by Mickey Mouse. New scenes such as Goofy dancing and singing as the leader of the band, as well as Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse in new costumes performing a rhythmical dance, will enhance the appeal even further. And during the anniversary period only, the show’s finale has a curtain call with the Disney Friends and the dancers performing to the 15th anniversary theme song arranged in jazz style.
