Great sound, colorful costumes, energetic actors, humorous and fun. No wait for this show. Show up 10 minutes before the show and your in. No bad seats. Must see.

I agree. The show is about 30 minutes long and is my favorite live performance in all of Disney's parks. For me, it rivals the Festival of Fantasy Parade and Happily Ever After as a "must see." I love it so much I have made... More
