DISNEY’S HIGHLY-ANTICIPATED
HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL 2 COMES TO LIFE
INSIDE DISNEY PARKS
WITH SPIRITED NEW SHOW


ANAHEIM, Calif. – August 17, 2007 – While millions of High School Musical fans are talking about the premiere of High School Musical 2 on Disney Channel, Disneyland Resort brings the global High School Musical phenomenon to life with a high-energy interactive street party in Disney’s California Adventure park.

The spread of “Wildcat fever” will have guests literally dancing in the streets when the new “High School Musical 2: School’s Out!” premieres tomorrow in Disney’s California Adventure. The show is themed to the highly-anticipated High School Musical 2 which premieres tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET/PT on Disney Channel. A cast of 15 talented performers will invite audience members to join in the fun of the show, which showcases six great new songs from High School Musical 2. High School Musical 2: School’s Out! replaces the High School Musical Pep Rally, which was inspired by the original movie.

Drawing its inspiration from the new movie, which follows the High School Musical characters as they head out for summer jobs and vacation, “High School Musical 2: School’s Out!” will entertain and engage audiences in a rockin’ musical celebration. The show concludes with an all-out dance finale featuring the latest High School Musical 2 soundtrack hit, “All for One,” and a reprise of the original smash, “We’re All in This Together,” from the movie that started it all.

“High School Musical 2: School’s Out!” will be presented three times a day in Disney’s California Adventure, traveling along the park’s parade route.

The new show joins a full line-up of immersive experiences to be found at Disney’s California Adventure and Disneyland during the Year of a Million Dreams celebration. At Disneyland, there are “Dreams Come True” opportunities for guests to meet and play with Disney Princesses at Disney’s Princess Fantasy Faire, duel with Darth Vader at Jedi Training Academy and create mayhem with the denizens of Pirate’s Lair on Tom Sawyer Island. The Year of a Million Dreams is being celebrated both at Disneyland Resort in Southern California and at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, where “High School Musical 2: School’s Out!” will premiere in the fall at Disney-MGM Studios.

Disneyland Resort features two spectacular theme parks – Disneyland (the original Disney theme park) and Disney's California Adventure – plus the Downtown Disney district comprised of unique dining, entertainment and shopping experiences. Resort hotels include the luxurious 745-room Disney's Grand Californian Hotel and Spa, the magical 990-room Disneyland Hotel and the "day at the beach" fun of the 502-room Disney's Paradise Pier Hotel.
