Mickey’s PhilharMagic is one of those great shows/films that my family loves to enjoy at least once. Located in the Magic Kingdom, Mickey’s PhilharMagic is in Fantasyland. The attraction is one of our must experiences because of the following key elements:
- Packed with incredible music.
- Great moments from classic Disney movies.
- Special effects.
- The great talents of Mickey, Goofy, Donald, and Minnie.
Today, I’m not going to talk about the show itself that much. After all, I’ve written about it before and you can read about it here, here, here, and even here. I’m only going to talk about the show to make reference to my favorite #DisneyMemory from this incredible attraction.
The year was 2008, and the day was June 18th. The day before Sophie turned 7 years old. We were at the Magic Kingdom that day, and we experienced Mickey’s PhilharMagic, as I know you are aware. The show was incredible, the music was great, the scenes were great, and Donald Duck was in trouble!
If you’ve seen the show, then you know at the end Donald is shot out of the tuba after Mickey arrives to attempt to put everything back the way it was supposed to be. You also know that in true Disney style, Donald shoots out of the movie screen and barrels through a wall at the back of the theater.
My favorite #DisneyMemory from this attraction happens after that moment. As everyone in the theater turned to see Donald sticking out of the wall, trying to free himself, my daughter Sophie yells out loud enough for the entire theater to hear her “Donald, are you all right?” At that moment, Donald fell, and we all laughed a bit because we could tell he was all right. I explained to Sophie that Donald was okay, that he trained for these events so that he wouldn’t get hurt, and everything was good.
A child’s imagination is a powerful thing, and on that day in 2008, Sophie showed us her child’s heart, and her empathy towards others. That is just one of hundreds of examples of her empathy towards others that we have been witness to in her life, and it is the one thing that I treasure her for more than anything.
