Disney magic meets Disney music in a 3-D film spectacular at Magic Kingdom in Walt Disney World Resort.

'Mickeys Philharmagic' has quickly become another feather in Disney imagineering's caps by returning to what they do best, animation! A whole host of characters combine for the fast-paced, laugh-out-loud and brilliantly conceived spectacle which thrills and amazes people of all ages.

The "Mickey's PhilharMagic" cast includes Mickey and Donald, as well as Ariel from "The Little Mermaid," Aladdin and Jasmine from "Aladdin," Peter Pan and Wendy from "Peter Pan" and Simba from "The Lion King."

Set in Fantasyland Concert Hall, the eye-popping musical experience unfolds on the largest seamless screen ever created for a three-dimensional film, a 150-foot-wide canvas. Complete with in-theater effects, the attraction immerses guests in the richly animated world of the Disney characters.

Tips & Fun Facts

When entering the theatre, head for the left hand set of doors and aim for the first half dozen rows from the front for a less restricted view. Don't rush in either, wait until a good number has entered, this way you're more likely to get a seat towards the centre of the theatre.
The loud noises and 3-D effects may be unsettling for very young children. However there are no 'scary' moments which some other 3-D attractions have.
Another good attraction in which to take a time out at. The seats are probably the comfiest of all the attractions in Walt Disney World!

"Mickey's PhilharMagic" features the largest seamless projection screen in the world, representing the most immersive wrap-around image Disney has ever created. The screen measures 150 feet long and 28 feet high.
Donald's voice as heard in the show was created out of classic performance from the past by Clarence "Ducky" Nash, the original voice of Donald Duck. Tony Anselmo, the current voice of Donald, added a few lines that were not recorded by Ducky in the past, such as humming the melody to "Be Our Guest."
The entire production of "Mickey's PhilharMagic" was created totally on computer, representing the first time the featured classic Disney characters were completely modeled and animated by computer.
The show features the largest cast of classic Disney animated stars who have ever performed together in a single 3-D show.
Animator Nik Ranieri, who brought Lumiére to life for Disney's animated classic "Beauty and the Beast," returned to render him in 3-D for "Mickey's PhilharMagic." Animator Glen Keane, creator of the magical Ariel in "The Little Mermaid," also returned to develop her in 3-D for this spectacular experience.
The long mural that spans the lobby is a composite of imagery from animated classic Disney movies with musical themes: "Toot, Whistle, Plunk & Boom," "Melody Time" and "Fantasia."
The show is in the same theater as the "Mickey Mouse Musical Revue" in which Mickey made his Magic Kingdom debut as an orchestra conductor in 1971. In 1980, the show moved to Tokyo Disneyland where it became an opening day attraction in 1983. It continues to play at Tokyo Disneyland today. The 3-D film "Magic Journeys" and the live puppet show "Legend of The Lion King" occupied the theater until the installation of "Mickey's PhilharMagic."
The city of Agrabah, as seen in the show, represents the largest 3-D environment ever created by Walt Disney Feature Animation.
The theatre has seating for 486 guests.
