Mickey’s turning 90 years old, and as part of this celebration around the world, Disneyland Paris will be receiving this attraction which many Walt Disney World guests already know and love. And yes I said “Love” there, because in my opinion there is nothing quite like a short wait time to enjoy watching Donald Duck create mayhem in modern Disney classics.
Mickey’s PhilharMagic is nearly identical to the show that can be seen in the Magic Kingdom, however it has had new French lyrics introduced into some of the musical sequences instead, which is a regular occurrence in Disneyland Paris of a 50/50 split between English and French in attractions and shows.
On top of this, Mickey’s PhilharMagic can be found at the back of Space Mountain in the Discoveryland Theatre, which has been home to “Honey, I Shrunk The Audience” and “Captain EO”, but most recently, it has been used to play “Path of The Jedi” during Disneyland Paris’ Season of The Force.
However great it is to see this theatre being used again, it does strike me as a little odd that such an incongruence attraction would be in the Jules Verne inspired Discoveryland. The reason why this is key, is that the Star Wars overlay to Space Mountain has seemingly become permanent, and so it will be interesting to see how long Mickey’s PhilharMagic lasts within the Discoveryland Theatre.
