I have to say that ALL of Disneyland is great, but there are shows and rides we love most. Here is our list of our favorite MUST SEE shows (and parades) you won’t want to miss on your next visit to Disneyland…
“The forces of good and evil battle in Mickey’s dream during this extravagant musical, pyrotechnic spectacular! Stunning effects erupt against the night sky while Disney Characters join the reverie—as projections on water and in live performances.
While Mickey conducts a breathtaking water show on the Rivers of America, his active imagination begins to grow. Using his conductor’s wand, he guides whimsical scenes from Fantasia across enormous screens of water—while brilliant sparks burst overhead. Pink elephants, massive puppets, princesses and more surprisingly appear on and around Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island.”
This is by far my favorite show (and my family’s). It is packed with action, fireworks, pyrotechnics, and best of all magic. If you don’t see any other show while at Disneyland make sure you see this one!
World of Color
I unfortunately haven’t actually had the chance to see World of Color myself but I have heard from friends it is a great show. It looks like it is!
Remember…Dreams Come True Fireworks Spectacular
“As unforgettable scenes from family-favorite Disney and Disney•Pixar animated and live-action movies stream across the screen, you’ll be inspired to reminisce about romances, look back at past friendships and relive remarkable adventures.”
Our favorite part: seeing Tinkerbell and Dumbo fly through the sky above the castle. SO MAGICAL! So be sure to get a spot up in front of the castle so you won’t miss the magic.
The World of Color show—the most impressive and fanciful nighttime extravaganza Disney has ever produced—is accompanied by momentous music, and also includes fantastic fire, fountain, fog and laser effects.”
Mickey’s Soundsational Parade
“The beat is rockin’ the street in this giant jam session—led by drummer extraordinaire, Mickey Mouse! Mickey leads this rockin’ parade, followed by many of his friends, including some royal Disney Princesses.
The kids love this one! It is a chance for them to see many of their favorite characters up close all at one time. Check out my video of the full parade below.
Disney’s Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular
“The genie is out of the lamp in this Broadway-style musical based on the classic animated Disney film, Aladdin.”
This is an excellent show the whole family will enjoy. The cast is very talented and it is so entertaining. It also provides a nice sitting break in a cool theater. If you haven’t seen it yet, be sure to fit it in on your next visit.
While it is tempting to just go on rides while visiting Disneyland, try to plan and schedule time to see these fantastic and magical shows on your next vacation.
You will also want to make sure you take pictures!!!
My kids love looking back at different shows we watched and talking about them. I always try to take a picture of them at the show in their seats or find a sign showcasing the event. That way they can remember we were there.
I am loving the pictures and memories I am getting with my Tamron Lens and I just have to share. It’s the bomb!!! No more switching out your lens to get the perfect shot. It can do it all! It was awesome having it on our Disneyland Vacation.
Check it out!
