Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire returned to Walt Disney World after a month-long closure due to the ongoing pandemic. The castle stage show, which used to be referred to as Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire, is a fan-favorite stage and takes place in front of Cinderella Castle multiple times per day.

During a recent performance, the show had to stop abruptly due to technical difficulties.

Magic Kingdom is filled with rides such as Pirates of the Caribbean, Jungle Cruise, Haunted Mansion, Big Thunder Mountain, Splash Mountain, “it’s a small world”, Space Mountain, and more.

Guests can also catch what many refer to as the 3 o’clock parade, Festival of Fantasy, which just recently returned to the Park, as well as the Cinderella Castle stage show, Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire.

One Disney World Guest was watching a performance of Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire when it was suddenly interrupted and stopped abruptly.

During the Tangled section, Rapunzel was singing her part of “I’ve Got a Dream”, when suddenly, the performers began waving goodbye and they all danced off-stage.

An announcement then comes on informing Guests:

“Greetings friends from near and far. Due to unforeseen circumstances, we have to temporarily pause Mickey’s Magical Friendship Faire.”

Magic Kingdom Guest and TikTok user, disneyparksdiy, posted the video to social media, which you can see below or by clicking here.
