View attachment 10420 â€œMinnieâ€™s Fly Girls Charter Airlineâ€ has opened for business today at Disney California Adventure park. This tune-filled â€œtravelogueâ€ of song, dance and audience interaction takes place in Condor Flats, across from Soarinâ€™ Over California, featuring songs from the â€˜40s, â€˜50s and â€˜60s in a colorful new show sure to appeal to the young and young at heart. Creating something to delight multiple generations was a central focus during production and a personal passion of the creative team. Senior Writer Carolyn Gardner said, â€œIâ€™ve been surrounded by pilots ever since I can remember. My dad was a private pilot [and] flight instructor, my mom flew her own â€˜soloâ€™ flight, my big brother worked at our local airfield and my cousinâ€™s an air traffic controller. I hope audiences feel their own hearts take wing when the showâ€™s flight crew launches into the fun-filled, flight-themed songs.â€ â€œCome Fly with Me,â€ originally performed by Frank Sinatra, introduces the crew â€“ Amanda, Pat, Kate and Lee â€“ to all their potential â€œpassengersâ€ (the audience). Minnie makes her grand entrance during â€œStraighten up and Fly Right,â€ a hit song by Nat King Cole. The performance also includes two medleys, incorporating a number of other musical favorites. â€œDestination Medleyâ€ is a fun, â€˜round-the-world collection of standards such as â€œBrazil,â€ â€œI Love Parisâ€ and â€œLady of Spain.â€ The Disney â€œFlying Medleyâ€ is an uplifting blend of Disney tunes, including â€œLetâ€™s Go Fly a Kiteâ€ and â€œWhen I See an Elephant Fly.â€ Art Director Brian Sandahlâ€™s challenge was to design a stage that doesnâ€™t look like a stage. â€œWhen the show is not being performed, the stage fits nicely into the aged look of Condor Flats, and youâ€™d almost not even notice it,â€ says Brian. â€œThe dÃ©cor for the stage looks very industrial, very much like found objects you would see in Condor Flats; however, when the show begins, a common flight sign becomes the â€˜show sign,â€™ a steel drum magically becomes a check in counter and an old trunk becomes a prop trunk for the many props in this show.â€ View attachment 10421 The music, costumes and props send this latest addition to Disney California Adventure park soaring to new heights.
