Now don’t get me wrong; I really wanted to like this show. I really did. I mean, it always gets rave reviews from the general public and from amusement park sites as well like this, but I honestly was just disappointed in the attraction. Nonetheless, this attraction provides stability in a place where various shows have been cycled in and out in the past few years, with the Lion King show being the most recent to be replaced.

The attraction really fits in well with Fantasyland, as the exterior looks great. Also, despite how the attraction utilizes Fastpasses, don’t at all worry about lines as they were nonexistent during my trip this past summer. Really this can be attributed to the attraction’s colossal theater. Not only does the theater have countless seats, but also Disney boasts the screen as the largest 3-D screen ever constructed, and boy does it seem it.

Onto the actual show itself, I was just somewhat disappointed. The plot of the attraction is this- Donald, going against Mickey’s firm orders, tries on Mickey’s Sorcerer Hat, leading to uncontrolled chaos erupting. Personally, I thought the GCI utilized during the show was sufficient, nothing spectacular yet nothing flagrant, but the audio was well above average as I’ve come to expect from Disney. Also, the 3-D effects utilized were awe-inspiring; however, they were actually underutilized in my opinion.

So what did I necessarily dislike about the show? Well, it just wasn’t all that enjoyable for me. I mean, all of the visuals and audio were fine, but just the enjoyment factor was just lacking when compared to other shows and attractions Disney has to offer. By far my favorite part of the attraction was the incredible finale. I don’t want to give it away, but I love how it incorporated a live action animatronic and it was just quite frankly a blast! Also, the show is pretty lengthy as well, somewhere around the neighborhood of 10-12 minutes.

Mickey’s PhilharMagic definitely is an achievement for Disney with all of the audio and visual flawlessly combined to create a picture-perfect show, but personally I just didn’t enjoy the plot line and substance as much as with other attractions. Despite my own disappointment with the attraction, I definitely recommend that you give the show a chance since I believe I’m one of the rare individuals who dislikes this film.
