Fans of Classic Cartoon Characters
This show requires the use of 3D glasses that are handed out at the entrance.
PhilharMagic is the perfect place to head when you find yourself melting in the heat of the day in Fantasyland or when it’s rainy. Mickey’s PhilharMagic is a 3D film featuring none other than Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.
During the course of the film you’ll get to see a lot of classic Disney cartoon characters. There’s even a few surprising interactive elements during the show. Like a scent of fresh baked goods magically filling the air and maybe a tiny splash of water.
Quite a few classic Disney tunes are part of PhilharMagic’s storyline. And at one point you even get the sensation that you too are flying along on a magic carpet.
PhilharMagic is actually a mild attraction making it good for all ages. If for some reason you don’t like the movement, the solution is to close your eyes. But this attraction doesn’t have a lot of that sensation.
Need to Know: Before entering the auditorium you will need to pick up a set of 3D glasses. They are required for watching the show. Mickey’s Philharmagic is approximately 12 minutes long. The longest wait will usually be for the next show to begin. Therefore you don’t need a FastPass.
While most guests will enjoy PhilharMagic, it’s not something that should be considered a priority during your vacation. As I said, it’s great for taking a break. It’s also a decent place to seek temporary shelter in the event of a pop-up shower.
