  • [Fun] Stevie Wonder performing in front of the castle!

    Absolutley amazing to see a living legend perform in front of the castle! He di a Christmas song and a couple of other songs as well! I think he wanted to do more, but the handlers made him stop!

    Be outspoken

    Be outrageous

    Just don't be boring

    Wow! You're soo lucky you were able to see that! I was there last night with my sister and we saw the stage, it was beautiful. They said Selena Gomez was going to perform as well. What time did you see the performance? Man, I wish I could've gone today.

      Re: Stevie Wonder performing in front of the castle!

      I found some video on youtube.

      The 1st is video of the set up in front of the castle, before the taping:

      The next video is from a distance, but does captures some of Stevie's performance
      (After the initial intro you can jump ahead to at least halfway through the video):

      People are still adding videos to youtube, here's a brief close up:

        Cool video! Thanks for sharing it!

        Stevie Wonder is one of the great entertainers of our time, no question about it.
        God, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

          Yes, Stevie was awesome!!! He was supposed to go on at 1:30 but I think it started about an hour late. It was so worth the wait. I also think he wanted to do more songs but they had to start the parade. Too bad - who cares about the parade?

            Today was "shoot a commercial" in DL. Made for a cramped day, but the lines for the rides were good.

              Thanks for posting my video! I uploaded and left the house, and came back to put on here, and it was already done for me! Haha! I took more, but they aren't very good. I was holding a baby, and trying to film at the same time plus people kept walking in front of me.

              One thing from today that I've been sharing is when Stevie made a joke saying "We need to hurry up, I want to see the parade" and everyone laughed.

              I thought it was pretty cool to be there, and it was a nice little treat to hear a couple of his hits as well. He only had to stop once during a song, I believe his third take otherwise got it every time.

                  Re: Stevie Wonder performing in front of the castle!

                  I was at DL today, and caught some of the stuf they were taping for the special (They did a special performance by Anika Noni Rose in NOS and on the Mark Twain, with lots of dancers, and that was fun to see some of), but my sis and I didn't feel like waiting in line for Stevie (a good choice since they got WAY behind schedule today!). But I was wondering if you guys could tell me what songs he did?

                  I was hoping for the Christmas Parade taping today, but nope. CMs told me they thought it will be tomorrow, or possibly even Tuesday. Interesting, since I thought they usually liked to do a weekend for the crowds, but it seems like they're taping a lot more this year, and all over the park, and I think they just want to spread out the effect it has on ride closures, etc, and can't fit it all into one day. The first year I went, Josh Groan, High School Musical cast, and the Parade taping with all the young dancers were all squashed into the same day (and then Miley came the next weekend to do her own taping)!

                        It was such a treat to be there for the performance! Probably at the top of my list of unique experiences at Disneyland.
                        Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
                        I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



                        May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

                        NO GOATS!

                          It must of been really rather unique, and exciting too. I am really hating myself for not going today, sucks I had plans or I so would of been there. Just the chance to say I got to see the greatest entertainer of our time would of been neat

                          ohh well : (

                                I was there today and saw the taping and will maybe be in the background crowd scenes for the stuff done in NOS. Saw the two people from Dancing with the Stars, Cheryl Burke and ???. Also Anika Noni Rose. I have some great photos and videos but will have to post tomorrow sometime.

                                But we also met the new President of the resort George Kalogridis. Spoke with him and took photos.

                                AND --- met, spoke with and got photos with John Lasseter!

                                It was a great birthday for me today

                                    Did anyone get a good close up picture of the sparkly trees they had up near the castle? I didn't have a camera on me, but they were GORGEOUS! Pity they're a set piece - I wish they were part of the regular park decorations!

                                    Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                                        Selena DID NOT perform yesterday. I heard that it was only a rumor and untrue.
