Halloween at the Walt Disney World Resort

The Technology Behind ‘Mickey and the Magical Map’ at Disneyland Park

posted on June 5th, 2013 by Shawn Slater, Communications Manager, Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Creative Entertainment


Yen Sid isn’t the only sorcerer at work during “Mickey and the Magical Map”! Our Creative Entertainment team has employed plenty of technical wizardry to help bring the new, musical spectacular to life on stage.

Front and center, of course, is the map itself, created with an enormous, multi-tiered LED screen. It’s an incredible example of technology used as a tool to help tell our story, and there’s even more tech employed backstage.

Today, Technical Director Mike Layman gives us a behind-the-scenes look at the role technology plays in staging a production on the scale of “Mickey and the Magical Map.”

Very impressive, I can’t wait to see it. I really like that area of the park, for some reason it’s so relaxing. Does anyone know the approximate length of this show?
