The Sunset Showcase Theater in Disney California Adventure's Hollywood Land has a new tenant, and it looks like this one might stick around for a while.
Long-time Walt Disney World favorite Mickey's Philharmagic opened for its west coast run in the theater this morning. For the past few years, the Sunset Showcase has been DCA's home for extended previews of upcoming and recently released Disney films. And before that, it was the long-time home of the Muppets 3D production.
Officially, the Disneyland Resort is tying the debut of Mickey's Philharmagic to its Get Your Ears On - Mickey & Minnie Celebration, which ends June 6. But as anyone who's seen the show in Florida or at other Disney theme parks around the world can attest, the real star of this 4D show is Donald Duck. And there's no indication that this will be a limited-time run for the show, which plays at every other Disney theme park resort around the world, save Shanghai.
Mickey's Philharmagic was the first use of computer animation for many of the classic Disney cartoon and film characters when it debuted in 2003. This installation does not employ the super-wide screen used in Florida, but does supplement the theater's traditional front screen with projections on side "screens" above the entry and exit doors.
We invite viewers to rate and review the new show on our Mickey's Philharmagic page then to rate and review other Disney California Adventure attractions and restaurants on our other DCA pages, as well.
