Report: Disneyland to introduce new musical show in 2013Submitted by Nick Sim on Tuesday, July 31, 2012 07:38
A new report suggests that Disneyland will take advantage of the relocation of its princess meet-and-greet to install a new musical show in its current location.
The Orange County Register reports that the park is working on a "brand new show" for the Fantasyland Theater, which will be vacated when the Disney princesses move to a new home in the under-construction Fantasy Faire area.
The Fantasyland Theater has not hosted a Broadway-style musical since 2006, when the Princess Fantasy Faire moved into the location. However, the replacement of the former Carnation Plaza Gardens area by Fantasy Faire will leave it unoccupied.
Disney has confirmed plans to add a new show to the theater, but has yet to release any details. The description of it as being "brand new" may rule out the installation of Toy Story - The Musical, which was due to replace Disney's Aladdin – A Musical Spectacular at Disney California Adventure in 2011 before the plan was dropped.
Fantasy Faire will be themed around a village square, and will host meet-and-greets with famous princesses from Disney movies. This will include Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Mulan, Belle, Pocohontas, Jasmine, Tiana and Ariel. Three of the princesses will be present in the area at any given time.
