“Mickey’s Mix Magic,” now performing at Disneyland Park is a new, high-energy projection show, that will light up the night to celebrate the one and only Mickey Mouse. This nightly extravaganza creates a family-fun dance party throughout the park, with “DJ” Mickey spinning the new celebration song, “It’s a Good Time” along with new, fun takes on favorite Disney songs. Check-out the full show below:

“Mickey’s Mix Magic” is part of Get Your Ears On, A Mickey and Minnie Celebration, and the biggest party for the legendary duo in Disneyland history. Guests dance and sing along as state-of-the-art projections, lighting and lasers transform Main Street, U.S.A., the facade of “it’s a small world” and the water screens of the Rivers of America (viewing at Rivers of America will be available when “Fantasmic!” returns in March) into a colorful, dazzling display of sights and sounds to celebrate the Mouse who rocks our world. And on select nights, “Mickey’s Mix Magic” goes sky high when the show is enhanced with the addition of fireworks. The show was designed to run without Fireworks and it’s spectacular.

We liked the special effects, lasers, and snow along Main Street, but the projectors were more crisp and clear at small world. Either way, you won’t miss the experience and high energy music and projections. It will be interesting to see it when Fantasmic returns.

“I think ‘Mickey’s Mix Magic’ is really going to surprise our guests,” said Steven Davison, executive creative director of parades & spectaculars for Disney Parks Live Entertainment. “It’s unlike anything we’ve done with a projection show before, both visually with bright kaleidoscope colors and musically with the fun, electro-swing tunes that ‘DJ’ Mickey spins. It’s such a good time, and I can’t wait to see kids of all ages enjoying this massive dance party throughout Disneyland Park!”
