The computer-animated 3D movie from Walt Disney World premiered at Tokyo Disneyland on January 24, 2011, replacing the Mickey Mouse Revue, which had played in the park since its 1983 opening. (The Mickey Mouse Revue had been an original Disney World attraction before being shipped to Tokyo.)
Despite the "Mickey's PhilharMagic" name, Donald Duck gets the most screen time and attention in this musical adventure through classic Disney moments, though, as always, it is up to Mickey to put everything right when Donald goes out of control.
While I was sad to miss my chance to see the Mickey Mouse Revue, I'm a big fan of Mickey's PhiharMagic at Magic Kingdom. Being so well acquainted with that version, I wouldn't wait in a long queue to experience it in Tokyo, as the film is identical, but the novelty of hearing the songs and dialogue in Japanese was really fun when there was no wait in the late evening. The preshow waiting area is really beautiful, and I was extremely impressed with the condition of the film itself. It's crystal clear and looks brand new.
