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!

Look for “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” to make its debut in summer 2016!


  • What times will this show be performed ?

  • I would like to know the same thing: Dream Along with Mickey ended April 2 and the new show is scheduled for “summer 2016”, does that mean there is no show at the castle now? We will be there May 20-28 and would like to know if there is something at the castle. I can’t believe there is going to be a gap in days where there is no show at the castle and will be very disappointed!

  • I still haven’t seen an answer… if Dream ends 4/2 and the New Friends starts in Summer, does that mean there is no show at all in April, May?

  • Will there be anything between the end of Dream Along & the new show? Or is the new show starting up right after Dream Along? I’ll be at Magic Kingdom on April 4th & was so looking forward to catching a show in front of the castle!

  • I’m really excited for the new show, and I understand that Dream Along had to go anytime now because it’s been running for almost 10 years… but I will miss it so much! I wonder if it would be possible to get a live stream of the last performance? I’ve seen you live stream shows before on this blog… Dream Along was well loved by many and meant a lot to some people including myself… and many of us won’t be able to go to WDW before April 2 to see it one last time… So please please please would you consider live streaming it so that we can enjoy it one last time before saying goodbye to it? Thank you for reading!!

  • …I’m sorry, I meant *Jeffery*, not jason.

  • Jason;
    The show is also going to have characters from Princess and the Frog and Tangled. so it’s not just Frozen alone. At this point, it’s very clear that Anna and Elsa are just as popular with people as Rapunzel, Tiana, or even Cinderella or Snow White.

  • Are we sure the last day is April 2 for Dream Along with Mickey? It seems like an extremely long dark period between the two shows.

  • I can’t wait to see the Mickey’s Royal Friendship faire in November 2016! Awesome!

  • How long will this new show be running? We have a trip planned in November 2016.

    • Tina Marie – This new show debuts in the summer, but will then be part of the regular entertainment offerings at the Magic Kingdom.

  • Is this going to be a recurring show throughout the day that essentially replaces Dream Along With Mickey’s lineup, or is it going to be a new welcome show?

    • Andy – Once it debuts this summer, “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” will be performed several times daily on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage. The “Welcome Show” will continue to be presented at the Main Street Railroad Station each morning, just as it is today.

  • Great news! Dream along with Mickey was fantastic but my daughter is crazy excited that the Princess and the Frog are going to be part of the new show! Can’t wait to see it when we visit in September!

  • Oh finally, it took way too long before it was removed! Great line up!

  • Do you know what the debut date will be for the new show?? We are visiting at the end of June and would love to see this! Thanks!

    • Ellen – It’s definitely opening this summer. As soon as we have a specific date, we’ll be sure to share it here on the blog.

  • Is dream along with Mickey definitely going do we know or will this show be in addition to it?

  • Everyone’s been asking, is there a particular REASON why it’s all “New Friends” 00’s characters (Tiana, Rapunzel, Elsa), and no Classic or 90’s?
    Or are we just taking a breather from the classic Dream Along characters after so many years?

    • Eric – Each show is different, but I think everyone would agree that Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy and Goofy are true classics.

  • SO excited! Tangled and Princess & the Frog are two of my absolute favorites!! And they’ve been so underused in the parks. It’s about time they get some love. :)))) Best part, it looks like it will have already started by the time I get there in October. Woohoo!

  • The last shows for Dream Along with Mickey will be performed on April 2, 2016.

  • How do we know that they are getting rid of Dream Along With Mickey?

  • For all you people asking, the last day for Dream Along should be April 2nd.

    I’m super excited about this. It looks cute!

  • My heart breaks that “Dream along with Mickey” will be gone. I can’t imagine anything being as good as this – my kids call it “The Castle Show” and it has been a classic and favorite in our home for years!!!

    • Katie – I have fond memories of “Disneymania!” myself, but I’m sure you and your kids will love the new “castle show.”

  • Finally, some Frozen presence in the parks.

  • I love that Tiana and Naveen are going to be getting more attention. They are the most fun members of Disney royalty at meet & greets, so this should be really good.

  • I am really excited about this!! The Princess and the Frog doesn’t receive enough attention. It’s such a great movie!

  • Do you know when Dream Along with Mickey’s Final performance will be? I need to see it before it’s gone forever!

  • Will you keep us informed of the last day for Dream along with Mickey?

    • After an incredible run of nearly 10 years, the final performance of “Dream Along with Mickey” is scheduled for April 2, 2016.
