In celebration of the 90th Anniversary of Mickey, Disneyland has debuted a brand new projection show that, on select nights, will also feature fireworks: Mickey’s Mix Magic. The new nighttime spectacle is touted as a high-energy dance party in the park and on weekends and peak days will also be supplemented with fireworks — weather permitting.
“It’s a Good Time” is a brand new song created for the #Mickey90 that is featured in the show, bringing a new Disney Parks ear-worm to your repertoire. It is coupled with special effects, video, and favorite Disney songs to bring a festive vibe to celebrate Mickey and Minnie.
So where’s the best place to see the new show? Since the show predominately relies on its projection, lighting, and laser effects, the best place to watch will be Main Street, U.S.A., the facade of “it’s a small world”, and (once “Fantasmic!” returns in March) the water screens of the Rivers of America.
