The Mad T Party Has Built an Amazing House of Cards!

posted on June 7th, 2012 by Robin Trowbridge, Entertainment Show Director, Disneyland Resort.


Just inside the Rabbit Hole, and just beyond the main stage of the Mad T Party, a house has been built – a House of Cards, that is!

Get an inside look at the amazing House of Cards!

With towering A-frame architecture, brilliant lighting, vibrant projections and a giant triangular LED video wall, this entire area of the party has been “stacked” with an array of amazing “opportuni-Ts” to delight the maddest of Hatters!

Situated below the impressive structure is our House of Cards stage, providing a performance space for two incredible entertainment acts. The first of these is the Mad Hatter’s personal dance crew … the one, the only, the Hottest Deck in Town!

Join Club, Diamond, Spade and Heart as they dance to the beats with the White Rabbit DJ.

This “suit” of sensationally hot dancers lays all their cards on the table and deals out moves that will have “everybody shufflin’!” Their names are Club, Diamond, Spade and Heart, and this four-of-a-kind loves to play for a Full House! We’re sure that you’ll love this winning hand!

In addition, slinking its way onto the House of Cards stage is a specialty act called “WHO R U?”

WHO R U? A unique dance performance at the House of Cards.

This transformational treat dances, twists, morphs, stretches, bends and jiggles … leaving us to wonder, “Where’s its head?” This unique performance is visually mesmerizing and surprisingly humorous. So if U R ready for something fun and entertaining, then “WHO R U?” is a must-see for U!

As if all that amazing entertainment’s not enough, the House of Cards becomes the hottest place to show off your dance moves while the White Rabbit DJ is spinning! And at the nearby House of Cards lounge, you’ll find an assortment of deliciously curious beverage concoctions perfect for quenching the cravings of even the thirstiest Bandersnatch!

T Time is quickly approaching! The table has been set, muchness has been prepared, and we have almost crossed every “T” in the party. It all officially begins June 15 at Disney California Adventure park. Are you ready for T?
