8 Live Performances You Can See At Disney World & Disneyland

Venturing into the happiest place on earth means ordering one too many Mickey pretzels, riding Space Mountain a dozen times, and coming face to face with The Mouse himself – but it can also mean a wide range of live entertainment. While Walt Disney World in Florida and Disneyland in California both offer plenty of fun just by being in their respective parks (themed attractions, parades, characters and fireworks galore!), the resorts are home to a number of exclusive live theatre shows.

If you’re looking to add a dash of theatre to your magical vacation, check out these eight stage shows:
