What To Expect

Be ready for a high-energy, immersive, concert-style show. The whole ‘ohana will be able to sing along to fan favorite songs from Disney Junior shows, and hear some original music too. Expect a DJ to keep things interactive, and delight in dancing, acrobatics and 3D special effects.


The show takes you along as Mickey, Minnie their crew get ready to throw a costume party. However, wild weather—mysterious green rain, wind and smoke—keeps interrupting the fun. Then, Spidey, Spin and Ghost-Spider will be there show up and try to help save the Costume Palooza.


The show is scheduled into two parts with a 15-minute intermission. There will be a pre-show for about 10 minutes, as audience members find their seats. The first act will be 30 to 35 minutes long and include Mickey and his pals, as well as Alice, Doc McStuffins and the Puppy Dog Pals. The second act, about 25 minutes long, will showcase the Marvel super heroes.


The addition of “Spidey and his Amazing Friends” elevates this show to whole other level—thanks to Cirque-style entertainment with a trampoline, tumbling and more. The actors in the show are high-level performers, they are bringing incredible skills to the stage.


“A large reason why we do this type of show is to introduce children to theater and different kinds of productions and, of course, bring kids closer to their favorite characters,” says Executive Producer Jonathan Shank. “It’s amazing to see the expressions on kids’ faces.”
