“What are you waiting for?” “I don’t know, something amazing, I guess.” – The Incredibles. It’s week two of the 2013 Disney Parks promotion Limited Time Magic.

Today marked the debut of the new show “A Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue” at Disneyland. The tribute features selections from the original show and is focused on proprietress Lilly (a reference to Walt’s wife Lillian) and her dancing girls. There’s some humor, but none of the vaudeville elements that were so fundamental to the charm of the original. Don’t get me wrong, it’s great to see all the dancing, costumes, and have Miss Lilly back on stage. But the show is incomplete without the traveling salesman and the wild antics of Pecos Bill.
What we do have are four great numbers “Hello, Everybody”, “A Good Man Is Hard to Find”, “Belly Up to the Bar” and “Can-Can”. The can-can number revives the burlesque routine in fine fashion and the actress playing Lilly brings just the right amount of sass and swagger to the role. Having four live musicians in the band is also a wonderful surprise.
I know this is a limited time magic event, but I fervently hope that Disneyland management sees this as proof that there is a demand for variety shows and brings back the whole full-length production. Heck, duplicate it out here in Orlando too.
I’ve embedded two highlights of the show below the jump, an official one from Disney and one from DisneylandLive fan site. You can also watch the whole thing here courtesy of WDWNT.
