Every night is show time at Walt Disney Theatre, an elegant, 1,340-seat entertainment palace that is at once classic and ultra-modern. Spanning three decks with orchestra and balcony seating, the theater is resplendent with art deco styling recalling luxurious show places of a bygone time. At the same time, it is equipped with theatrical technology that makes it one of the most advanced venues on land or sea, allowing producers to bring original productions and Disney stories to life in a whole new way. The lineup of musicals presented at Walt Disney Theatre includes: â€œDisneyâ€™s Believeâ€ Headlining the musical repertoire is â€œDisneyâ€™s Believe,â€ an original stage spectacular premiering aboard the Disney Dream. Combining a heartfelt story with a captivating musical score, the lavish production tells the story of a workaholic father who, through the power of Disney magic, reconnects with his daughter and learns a valuable lesson about what is important in life. â€œDisneyâ€™s Believeâ€ takes guests to the garden of Dr. Cornelius Greenaway, a brilliant botanist obsessed with cultivating his precious plants. Dr. Greenaway is so preoccupied with his garden that he overlooks the birthday of his daughter, Sophia. Saddened, Sophia makes a special birthday wish and the impossible happens: Genie from Disneyâ€™s â€œAladdinâ€ appears to make her wish come true. Joined by a host of other characters, Genie takes Dr. Greenaway on an enchanting journey into the world of Disney stories. Through spirited production numbers, Dr. Greenaway learns that magic is real and is embodied in his beloved daughter. More than 20 of Disneyâ€™s most beloved characters take the stage during â€œDisneyâ€™s Believe,â€ including Cinderella, Peter Pan, Mary Poppins, Belle (â€œBeauty and The Beastâ€), Rafiki (â€œThe Lion Kingâ€) and Princess Tiana (â€œThe Princess and The Frogâ€). â€˜The Golden Mickeysâ€™: A Timeless Tribute â€œThe Golden Mickeys,â€ an award-style show celebrating the musical heritage of Disney animated films, is a Disney Cruise Line guest favorite. On the Disney Dream, the show gets an extra sprinkle of glitz and glamour with new musical numbers, enhanced technology and dazzling special effects. New production numbers include an aerial ballet featuring Ariel from â€œThe Little Mermaid,â€ an elegant ballroom waltz inspired by â€œBeauty and the Beastâ€ featuring the Beastâ€™s transformation into a prince, and a romantic duet performed by Rapunzel and Flynn Rider, lead characters of Disneyâ€™s newest animated feature, â€œTangled.â€ â€˜Villains Tonight!â€™ The malevolent world of the Disney villains takes a comical spin in â€œVillains Tonight!,â€ the first full-scale musical production dedicated to the Disney villains. The show is a fun-filled musical comedy starring Hades (â€œHerculesâ€), who embarks on a quest filled with wacky antics and amusing musical numbers to bring evil back into the Underworld. â€œVillains Tonight!â€ features a â€œWhoâ€™s Whoâ€ of Disney â€œbaddies,â€ including Jafar (â€œAladdinâ€), Ursula (â€œThe Little Mermaidâ€), the Evil Queen (â€œSnow White and the Seven Dwarfsâ€), Captain Hook (â€œPeter Panâ€) and Scar (â€œThe Lion Kingâ€). Party on Deck In addition to nightly stage productions, Disney Cruise Line brings the upper decks of the Disney Dream to life with incredible live entertainment. The fun begins with â€œSailing Away,â€ a â€œwelcome aboardâ€ show starring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and the Disney gang. The show is a celebration of the fun aboard a Disney cruise, building to the exciting sounding of the shipâ€™s horn. On a special night each cruise, the entire Disney Dream transforms into a pirate ship with two new events brimming with buccaneer fun and a new fireworks spectacular. The evening kicks off on the Donald Pool stage with â€œMickeyâ€™s Pirates IN the Caribbean,â€ a family-friendly interactive show featuring the famous Disney characters. Guests become members of Mickeyâ€™s Pirate Crew as they participate on a series of pirate-themed musical numbers. Later in the evening, a special appearance by Captain Jack Sparrow, from the â€œPirates of the Caribbeanâ€ films, kicks off â€œClub Pirate,â€ a high-tech, open-air dance party on the upper decks of the ship. Guests unleash their inner pirate and dance their boots off during this family-friendly and electrifying bash featuring stunning visuals and special effects. Fireworks at Sea The only cruise line to feature fireworks at sea, Disney Cruise Line ups the entertainment ante and lights up the sky with the largest fireworks extravaganza presented aboard a cruise ship. As an addition to the â€œPirates IN the Caribbeanâ€ celebration, the skies above the Disney Dream explode with brilliant colors during â€œBuccaneer Blast!â€ With more â€œbangâ€ than ever before, the pyrotechnic spectacular is choreographed to a dramatic score featuring songs from the â€œPirates of the Caribbeanâ€ movies, Peter Pan and the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction at the Disney theme parks.
