OK I get it, in the early years Walt made bad business deals that caused him to not get paid enough, have trouble paying the bills and lose employees because he couldn't pay them. How many times do you have to show that. That was mostly what the...continued

This show is magical and amazing, especially for Disney fans. The cast have incredible talent, and the production quality is top-notch. My only complaint is no soundtrack available for purchase, because we loved every one of the songs! :)

We really enjoyed it. The music was outstanding. The vocals were great. Inspiring story.
Pat Boone's name was in the program. Someone said he was one of the producers. He was in the audience.

This is an interesting 90 minute story about the early challenges of the Disney brothers, featuring some good acting and excellent stage setup. Unfortunately the Disney story is buried within a 2.5 hour drawn-out dancing and singing production. ...continued

It was a great show with a very talented cast. If it's headed for Broadway I think it should make it. If it comes back to LA at the Ahmanson or Pantages after a Broadway run I'll see it again.
