This month Disneyland has revived the show at Frontierland's Golden Horseshoe as part of its "Limited Time Magic" promotion.
The "Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Review" is slated to close on February 4th -- though I've heard a rumor from a source in the know that it's possible the successful revival will continue a while longer. We headed out there today to be certain we'd have a chance to see the show if it does close permamently on the 4th!
We obtained tickets for the first show of the day...
The beautiful interior of the Golden Horseshoe is said to have been inspired by the set design of the 1953 Warner Bros. musical CALAMITY JANE, which starred Doris Day and Howard Keel.
The show was quite entertaining. It felt slightly abridged, without some of the old comedy routines, but the cast was energetic and the actress playing Miss Lily was excellent. (And is it just me, or did I recognize a Princess Tiana among the singers?)
There's construction and remodeling going on all over the park at the moment. I'm not sure I remember seeing a crane in Disneyland before! It's there for this year's remodel of Big Thunder Mountain Railroad.
The Mark Twain is docked for rehab...
...and construction continues on Fantasy Faire on Main Street. Truth to tell, I think extending Fantasyland in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle is a mistake which clashes with the Main Street theming, and I've also been sorry to see Carnation Gardens disappear into Yesterland.
The park was very uncrowded today, with rain overnight having perhaps encouraged some folks to stay at home.
This ceramic cup is so cute...it might be coming home with me on a future visit!
The Mardi Gras celebrations have begun taking place in New Orleans Square:
On the calendar at the Disneyland Resort: This year the Chinese New Year will be celebrated at California Adventure rather than Disneyland. Special events, including Mulan's Chinese New Year Procession, will be held February 8th through 11th near San Francisco Street.
