A Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue returns what was Walt Disney's favorite show to Disneyland Park. Hosted by Miss Lily and her Saloon Girls, the revival will feature song and dance numbers such as "Hello, Everybody," "A Good Man Is Hard to Find," "Belly up to the Bar" and "Can-Can," in Frontierland's family-friendly western saloon. The show will play Thursdays through Mondays from January 10 to February 4.
But if the revival's anywhere near as entertaining as the original, I'll help organize the sit-in at City Hall to demand that the Golden Horseshoe be made a permanent addition to Disneyland Park. (And while we're at it, let's bring back the Diamond Horseshoe to the Magic Kingdom, too! After all, I suspect that some of Disney's "Limited Time Magic" promotions are actually trial runs to see what works, and doesn't, with Disney's most faithful fans.)
Disney also announced a "Bling in the New Year" dance party in Tomorrowland at the Magic Kingdom between Dec. 30 and Jan. 5. The show will feature plenty of Disney characters, as well as an hourly "countdown to midnight." And for Disney hoarders, there'll be a new, special Mickey ear hat released every month in 2013, as well. Get your credit cards ready.
