Disneyland Restaurant Resource

First, if you couldn't find it here, I would appreciate it if you would click on this link and send me a message to tell me what's missing.  I'll do my best to "fill in the blanks" as soon as possible.

Disneyland Live Shows and Entertainment

Hot Tip:  Besides the formal presentations listed here, you'll also find musical groups and other entertainers scattered about Main Street (Rod Miller and Alan Thompson play the piano at Coke Corner, the Dapper Dans Barbershop Quartet sing where ever they happen to be, the Disneyland Band plays at the square and the hub, and swing bands play at Carnation Gardens on Saturday nights), Adventureland (steel drum band on top of the Jungle Cruise queue), Tomorrowland (various groups at the Tomorrowland Terrace and the "Trash Can Trio" play at various places in the land), and New Orleans Square (various blues and jazz groups throughout the area).


Aladdin's Oasis

Aladdin, Jasmine, and a small group of others tell the story of the "street rat" and princess in this short, but fun, presentation.


Golden Horseshoe Saloon Revue

Woody's Roundup, a show based on the Toy Story character, is held here several times a day.  The show is supposed to be a takeoff of a 1950's TV show, so the vast majority of it is colored in black and white.  It's clever, but unless you're a big Woody fan, not worth a great wait.


Geppetto's Toys & Gifts

Three times a day, one of the Disney Princesses appears at the toy shop to tell the children that gather a timeless story.

Fantasyland Theatre

Animazement, a revue of the most recent animated features, is a lengthy, live presentation of a medley of Disney's musical heritage.  Very nicely done, but completely lacking in a story.

Sword in the Stone Ceremony

A fortunate guest, usually a younger child, is given the opportunity to take the test that propelled Arthur into his role as King of the Britons.
