Why did I not hear about this until now? Not that I would be able to go, but I'm a fan of DL who reads the official press and casually reads MiceAge/MiceChat, and I never heard of this event until this report.
They sure keep these kinds of things close to their chest, now, don't they?
The show at the Hollywood Bowl sounds like it was a happening performance. The Star Spangled Banner followed by Disney themes sounds like it would be quite breathtaking at that setting. How mant evenings do they do the performance? i'd like to see it in a year or two.
It was absolutely beautiful. Fess Parker was a hoot, especially coming out in his fringed jacket to sing the theme song.
But what stole the show for me was intermission, believe it or not. At the top of the show, the conductor said that Disney had opened the vaults to give them access to music that had never been performed at a live concert before. Well, apparantly they gave them access to a little bit more than that from the vault. Through intermission, they were showing footage from the park that I have never seen before. From construction through present day, it was beautiful and mesmerizing. It felt really special to be seeing it.
