It was a very good and entertaining musical for the price and an interesting subject matter plot. Great cast, good voices and terrific dance numbers. I really enjoyed it

This play needs more work. Frist half too long about Walt's life. Second half better but that part of his life is what everybody knows about. Songs were OK, not memerable. Acting and dancing were very good. A gallant effort, but not...continued

I liked this musical in concept and potential more than in reality. It has some work to be done in making it more 'Broadway'. There is some really great set design, costumes and ideas but the execution wasn't amazing. In my opinion the actor...continued

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!

Easy getting seats. Good quality of actors and the story. I kept expecting there to be music. My only concern is that it made Walt a little dark, perhaps he was, but I like my Disney happy!

I thought the actors were wonderful and their voices were excellent, though the songs less memorable.The dancing was fun and energetic I was very interested to learn about Walt Disney's story, but somehow the play lacked crispness. I wanted to...continued

The Goldstar experience was GREAT - easy to purchase, easy to pickup at will-call, etc. The show itself was entertaining, but needs more work before Broadway.

There are too many songs (nearly all of which are forgettable) and there is an...continued

The play is depressing because Disney had so many failures. It wasn't until the end of the show that he created Mickey Mouse (Steamboat Willie) and his movies. The music is forgetable. The cast could dance and sing well, but who wants to go to the...continued

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

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

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

While the performance of the actors and dancers was very strong and impressive, the story was a bit rushed, jumbled, and some songs felt like they were out of place. Walt's mother was not an overly "feeling" woman and the development of...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!

LIKED THE MUSIC AND THOUGHT THE SET DESIGNS ORIGINAL. THE LEADS WERE GOOD AS WERE THE DANCERS.
I THINK THE STORY NEEDS SOME WORK, ESPECIALLY ACT 1.

Great show, however was very upset that the date I had tickets to was at the last minute cancelled and then to rebuy tickets was more expensive with less options because it was last minute. It was very unprofessional and disappointing.

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

The show was lovely, light and clean. If your child knows Disney they would enjoy and learn from. 'Walt' has an amazing voice and puts out a great performance. His brother too. Get parking directions ahead, it is kind of a maze to find your way...continued
