“All the girls were dressed like Tinkerbell…it was pretty dangerous, but it was fun.” – Mouseketeer Mary Espinosa

On November 24, 1955, the Mickey Mouse Club Circus opened in Disneyland; the attraction is considered one of Walt’s few failures. The circus, itself a way to get some publicity for the show, featured several of the popular cast members, including Annette Funicello and Doreen Tracey. The kids would perform various circus acts, but the failure of the circus came in attendance – Disneyland had so many things to explore, and people didn’t want to attend a circus while there. The show lasted one holiday season before it was closed on January 8, 1956.
