Disney Cruise Line Stages Next Chapter of Entertainment, And It’s The Most Technically Sophisticated Stage Show At Sea
Following a long-standing tradition of delivering the best in family entertainment, Disney Cruise Line adds to its line-up of original Disney musicals this year by premiering The Golden Mickeys, the most technically sophisticated stage show at sea.
The performance combines live-action theater with film, video, music and colorful pyrotechnics in a toe-tapping salute to Walt Disney and his legacy of classic animated films.
As if attending a distinguished Hollywood awards show, guests enter The Walt Disney Theatre along a red carpet lined with "paparazzi." Of course, once inside, there are stars, including Tim Allen, who speaks to guests through taped video; live performances, including the award-winning "Son of Man" from Disney's Tarzan soundtrack; elaborate sets, including dramatic Chinese silk drops, mysterious "lakes" of fog and eye-popping animated backdrops; and even a few characters.
The Golden Mickeys debuted in August aboard the Disney Wonder and is scheduled to debut in December aboard the Disney Magic.
Some 200 singers, dancers, actors, comedians, Disney characters, producers, directors and backstage assistants entertain guests nightly in The Walt Disney Theatre, a magnificent 977-seat showplace featuring elaborate lighting sets and state-of-the-art technical facilities.
The Walt Disney Theatre line-up is as follows:
The Walt Disney Theatre also hosts first-run Disney films premieres, allowing cruisers to enjoy a film's opening night at the same time it's making its nationwide release on land. Premieres this year have included Finding Nemo, The Lizzie McGuire Movie and Holes.
