Beginning this summer, Mickey Mouse and his friends will welcome favorite characters from some of Disney’s newest classics in “Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire.” This all-new live stage show makes its debut in June on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage at Magic Kingdom Park, with special appearances by Tiana and Naveen from “The Princess and the Frog,” Rapunzel and Flynn from “Tangled” and Anna and Elsa from “Frozen.”

“Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” brings to the stage fantastic costumes, lively dancing, special effects magic and memorable musical moments, including the original song “On This Day” by songwriters Brendan Milburn and Valerie Vigoda (“Toy Story: The Musical,” “Tinker Bell: Secret of the Wings”).

In the show, 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. 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 new friends to join in the fun on this special day in Magic Kingdom Park.

“Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire” celebrates the unique stories of the citizens who make up this magical kingdom. The celebration begins this June! Will you be there?


  • “The celebration begins this June! Will you be there?”

    No idea! I mean, we’ll be in the Magic Kingdom three times in June, but whether or not we’ll be at this show depends on WHEN in June it opens.

    • Jon – Stay tuned to Disney Parks Blog. We should have an update for you tomorrow!

  • Will there be a villain? Or will it be all puppies and gumdrops? One of the best things about the old show was having capt hook and Malificent crash the party.

  • So excited will be their in July, 2016. 🙂

  • I’m so excited ! We will be there at the end of June.

  • Too bad all the new stuff is happening at the same time at Disney World. Everything from May got pushed till June. Star Wars. Rivers of light. Frozen. Soarin. And now this. We’re going to miss them all by just days

  • While I understand the desire for more classic characters, I am very happy to see Tiana and Rapunzel get some more time in the spotlight!

  • I will be there!

  • I’m So Excited for this new Show! Hopefully we’ll see a full show soundtrack release for this as well.

  • We will Be there June 10-18th . My son loved the Dream Along With Mickey show, so I hope this will be open by the time we arrive!

  • The current castle show is good but has been there a long time. Are the Frozen, Tangled, and Princess and the Frog the only characters in this show besides Mickey and friends? I’d rather see classic characters. Frozen has already displaced too many things in the parks.

  • Please open when we are there June 4!!!

  • Hoping this new show will be open during my visit from June 4-11th!

  • We will be there the first week of June! Will this be open then?

  • Perfect! Will be there on June 10~14th.
