While there were many good things about the production, the play itself needs tightening. The opening number was too weak -- the song was boring and needs to be replaced with something more catchy and "up". The same is true for the ending. ...continued

My boyfriend and I went to see this wonderful production last Saturday night. What a fabulous story and the actors were absolutely great. The singing was something you would find on Broadway which my boyfriend came from there. The dancing as well...continued

performers were excellent!

The parking was terrible. It was impossible to see the names of where we were supposed to turn, and there were no attendants around. As a result of...continued

Acting, dancing well done. The story is the problem. Too much negative connected by odd disconnecting dance. We don't feel hopeful especially because we know the end of the story and are disappointed about the "dirt" on Walt - not paying his...continued

We thought it was a terrific production and will be hoping that it does make it to Broadway. It probably needs to be tightened up a bit but it was a priviliege to be in on the ground floor of seeing this production.

Top notch music, voices & dancing. With a bit of shortening & pace acceleration, should be a big hit in NYC and a Tony contender, especially for the music!

Really interesting storyline for Disney fans and unknowledgeable fans alike. Gives the backstory to this entertainment giant and genius! Wonderful singing and performances by the many Broadway & national touring company artists in this production....continued

First, I'm a huge Disney fan and a fan of history so I enjoyed the show on a number of levels. The show tells the story of Walt Disney's struggles as a young animator, his relationship with his brother, and the eventual opening day of Disneyland....continued

Terrific show. Everyone gate it a standing ovation. Loved it. Note: we had a very difficult time finding the Freud Playhouse. Be sure to locate it on a map before you go. We walked all over the place looking for it. But great show!

The show was delightful. We received 3 tickets that were located at the very side of the theater, despite the fact that there were a lot of empty seats in the middle of the row. The theater was about 60% full. The usher allowed us to move before...continued

Excellent story, terrific acting, excellent choreography. I think they did the best possible job with the material--Walt Disney's life. It should be a permanent attraction at Disneyland and Disney World.

I wasn't sure what to expect with this musical. We took a friend who was a long time Disney employee and remembered meeting the family a few times. She really enjoyed how much they covered in a short amount of time about Disney's life. The singing...continued

Good show, acting and singing. Very enjoyable. I grew up in So Cal in the 50's-60's so was very much a Disney fan. I took my 89 year young mother and she thought it was great. Good entertainment.
