Published: December 28, 2012 at 12:10 PMGreat news! But one month only? BOO! I do hope they make it permanent. It's a great show that should be part of the Disneyland experience. Also count me in that it should return to the Magic Kingdom as well. The main reason it seems they cut it was to save money, with the admission prices they can easily afford to as you say put on the show.

Published: December 28, 2012 at 4:53 PMDom, we are total agreement.....
Published: December 28, 2012 at 4:55 PMAlthough I agree that one month is too short, it's better than most of the other week-long 2013 promos.
Published: December 28, 2012 at 5:55 PMI wasn't sure how Disney was going to swing this, but I think I might like this limited time magic. I also think Robert is on to something where what Disney is really up to is to try out old/new concepts for the park. I am ok with that too.
The one vibe that I got from Disneyland when I visited was that we are stepping back into the kitsch of the 50s and 60s Disney. I feel that this is an excellent way to differentiate them from WDW. WDW has the size and the rides, Disneyland has the charm and the history. Because of this, The Golden Horseshoe should come back forever. Seriously, what good alternative has Disney offered? Woody's Roundup? Its nice and all, but I have seen a much more effective show with Woody and Jessie in the streets of Frontierland.
Published: December 28, 2012 at 9:08 PMDisney should simply bring back the Revue forever, it's a great show and much better than Billy Hill and the Hillbillies.
Published: December 29, 2012 at 2:51 PMI remember as a child always running to the Golden Horseshoe with my parents to get reservations for the Revue; that was always one of the high points for my Dad on any visit to Disneyland. My husband and I always get to the Billy Hill and the Hillbillys show because we both like the show and enjoy the Bluegrass style music; although I'd like to see them change up the music selections a little more often. Also we are spoiled because a couple of the group's members play at the local pizza place on most Saturdays.

Published: January 3, 2013 at 9:28 AMI do wish that Disney would release the full year's schedule of Limited Time Magic events up front. Most guests plan Disney vacations months in advance, and while it's fun to have something special going on when you're at the parks, it would be far more effective to allow guests to shift their vacations to dates when special events are planned. They've released some information on specific events (July 4 and September 13), but guests who have already locked in their Disneyland vacation for February 7, are probably pretty upset to be just missing out on the Golden Horseshoe. Releasing the schedule of events at the beginning of the year would allow guests to adjust the specific dates of their vacations to match with the events that they want to see.
