Mickey’s PhilharMagic at the Magic Kingdom may see an update prior to the park’s 50th anniversary in 2021. According to WDWMagic, the show is expected to receive an update that will include new songs from movies such as Frozen, Moana and Tangled.
While the update was tabbed to come with the 50th anniversary, respected insider Martin Smith believes the update won’t take long once it’s approved. It’s very possible that the update would be completed well before the 50th in 2021, but may be rolled into the announcements and upgrades celebrating the anniversary.
Currently, PhilharMagic features Donald Duck borrowing some of Mickey’s magic, creating a disaster that leads to an epic chase for Mickey’s sorcerer’s hat throughout many iconic Disney films. The show uses lighting, water and fans to create an immersive experience.
An infusion of more current or modern Disney films into PhilharMagic would be an easy update to a show that’s already a lot of fun. Hopefully any update will include a refresh to the theater’s projectors and effects.
