I’ll admit – I wasn’t always a fan of the castle shows, until I saw Dream Along With Mickey.
The first time I saw this show I was in love with it. It was such a great story and had some terrific characters, it also gave Donald Duck a bit of spotlight that he’s deserved for a while in my opinion!
The story revolved around Donald not believing in dreams and his friends were trying to convince him how powerful they could be. There were princesses and villains, happiness and adventure – all the things that make a great Disney story!
While it may sound a little sappy, this show always gave me goosebumps and hope. When the entire crowd started chanting “Dreams come true”, you really felt like you were empowered to make your dreams come true.
Things are always changing at Walt Disney World, and I’m looking forward to seeing the new show Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire. I’m sure it will dazzle and delight, but I must admit that I really will miss Dream Along With Mickey.
Mickey had a little speech to Donald at the end of the show that always moved me, I’ll leave you to ponder how powerful the message really is.
“By remembering about the power of dreams, you reminded us all that when we believe in ourselves, and our friends, and our family – why there’s nothing we can’t do! When you find the dream inside your heart, anything is possible!” – Mickey Mouse
