With rumors swirling over the past few weeks that the nearly 10 year old Dreamalong with Mickey castle stage show would soon close, the Disney Parks Blog made it official today by announcing its replacement. The new show will feature Mickey and friends in a musical highlighting recent Walt Disney Animation Studios hits, including The Princess and the Frog, Tangled and of course, Frozen.
Like Dreamalong with Mickey, the new show will be performed several times a day on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt stage in Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom. The final performance of Dreamalong with Mickey will occur on April 2, 2016, while the new show is due this summer.

All-New ‘Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire’ Coming This Summer to Magic Kingdom Park
Are you ready for a celebration?
This summer, the all-new live stage show “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” will grace the grandest stage at Walt Disney World Resort with magic, music and merriment! Against the majestic backdrop of Cinderella Castle, Mickey Mouse and his friends will welcome favorite characters from some of Disney’s newest classics: “The Princess and the Frog,” “Tangled” and “Frozen.”
In “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire,” Mickey and his troupe of Merry Makers have been preparing to host a joyous festival and have ventured far and wide to invite friends from other lands to join their celebration. From the Land of the Bewitching Bayous, Goofy has invited Tiana, Naveen and Louis to add a little spice of New Orleans jazz to the party. From the Land of the Enchanted Woods, Donald Duck brings some new friends he met at the Snuggly Duckling, and Daisy introduces us to her special guests, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. Finally, Mickey shares a surprise with Minnie, as he has traveled to the Land of the Mystic Mountains to invite Olaf, Anna and Elsa, who contributes a blast of her icy magic. It all culminates in a grand dance, as the Merry Makers invite all their special guests to join in the fun on this special day in Magic Kingdom Park!
Marking the first appearances by Tiana and Rapunzel in a show on the castle stage, “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” brings to life beloved Disney stories both classic and contemporary in a spectacular performance featuring an original song, memorable music, lively dancing and special effects magic.
Look for “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” to make its debut in summer 2016!
