January 27, 2011 – The Nighttime Show The Magic, The Memories, and You! Premieres in Disneyland
“It turns [it’s a small world] into an animated, coloring pad; it coaxes the singing dolls from inside the attraction to appear outside in the show; and it weaves hundreds of guest photos into a giant, surprise mosaic.”
On January 27, 2011, the new nighttime show The Magic, The Memories, and You! premiered in Disneyland, after a January 19 premiere in Walt Disney World. This show was created as part of the “Let the Memories Begin” year-long promotion. Although this kaleidoscope-style visual was intended to be broadcast on Cinderella Castle in Walt Disney World, the effects were brought to a smaller stage for Disneyland, where it was broadcast on the it’s a small world attraction. The ten-minute show uses technology to change the attraction’s outside façade, and also features around 500 photos and videos that guests submitted to the “Let the Memories Begin” online repository.
