    I have to agree, we loved Aladdin and saw it several times

    the Magical Map... reminded me of CASP
    trying too hard and, and weirdly lacking
    or the Mickey dance party...

    make it loud and lively and.. people will love it, right?
    no matter it if makes no sense and is just a rearrangement of earlier programs

    in fact, dance party fell further by taking the marvelous variety of Disney theme music and making it sound all the same...

    it was fun to watch the audience, mostly.. not engaged, looking around to see if they were the only ones...
    and drifting away...

    something people can't do at magical map without feeling conspicuous

    I haven’t seen Mickey and the Magical Map since 2014 and recently, I watched the show, completely forgetting how good the show was. It reminded me of an updated version of Animazement. I could see an update with characters from Frozen, Moana, etc.

I would LOVE for them to bring back the Space Stage, where all Disney stage shows used to perform back in the 70's & 80's. Open it up to an outdoor theatre again and bring back the glory of it all.
    Just curious - we have the Hyperion Theater at DCA and a certain minor thing called Fantasmic at DL plus the minor scale stuff at Princess Fantasy Faire. Is there really a need for another venue for stage shows?

    I'd highly recommend that anyone that is in favor of it staying watch one of these videos.
    Both of these shows in Hong Kong and Paris were inspired by Magical Map, but have more characters, higher production value, and better effects.
    I'm in favor of an updated or a new show.

    We saw it once about 6 years ago and my both my girls have never wanted to go see it again in those 6 years. I ask them a couple of times a year if they are interested and they never want to see it. They feel it's a one and done show and would see something new but they are over "the Map show."

    The lack of costume changes for different scenes has always bothered me about this show. Why are the dancers still wearing a germanic looking outfit when they are under the sea and in Hawaii with Stitch?

    I wish they could at least fix the animation... it has 'stuttered' since day one, as if a slow loading YouTube video.

    I would prefer the sort of high quality expansion of Fantasyland that Zorro advocates in his post above. But it's sadly true, the best we could hope for under the 2Bobs would be Cheaptastic.

    If I were a DLR bean counter, I'd wonder if producing a new stage show AND a Christmas stage show would allow hype to be brought back to the theater insomuch that the sales of food and beverage and merchandise would then see a raise. You could even throw the Christmas show on Fastpass if you really wanted to sell more Maxpass. Anyways, that'd be interesting...

    Right on both counts. From the "Wonder Bra theater" to today, that space has been a poor excuse for a Fantasyland attraction.
    Disneyland has enough attractions and far too few venues for entertainment. Although I enjoy the current show and would be sad to see it go, I would hope they continue using it as a stage for a new show. What a waste it was as a princess meet and greet. Turning it back into a theater was one of the few changes I’ve agreed with these last few years. I would think you would prefer what’s there now as compared to some money-grabbing concept Cheapak could come up with.

    I understand your sentiment, but at the same time there are multiple opportunities to enjoy live entertainment throughout Disneyland and DCA. The Fantasyland Theater is simply redundant. Most of the time when I walk by or observe it from the DL Railroad, the theater is either unused or there is a show playing to a mostly empty house (purely anecdotal on my part so maybe during the height of the summer or the holiday season it could be different). Still, I see it as a waste of valuable real estate. It should be razed to allow for a Fantasyland expansion. People have long been calling for attractions/themed areas for Beauty and the Beast, Frozen, Tangled, Cinderella, etc., etc. Get rid of the theater and you would have all the space you need. Actually, you'd also have to get rid of Chapek! LOL

Such a magical way to wait for a fast pass ;/ would be a shame if it was removed for nothing to replace it
    I would totally be fine if they changed and updated the show scenes! I even thought I read somewhere that this was supposed to happen from time to time, to keep it fresh. Not sure why it's never been done.

The only change I might make to the show is to add Lilo to the Lilo & Stitch scene. The dancers are all so great and full of energy and it makes you feel good seeing the show. Fantastic has been around for years so why can't Mickey & the Magical Map stick around. Keep it forever as far as I am concerned!
    I respect your feelings on the show. But the dancers to a new variety stage show could be just as great (if not better) and full of energy, as well. And if done correctly, bring in big crowds! I would even be OK if they changed, "the map", with different songs and dance numbers.

    As for Fantasmic!, that show should have never been touched and "up-graded" as they did. The original show that lasted for nearly 25 years was PERFECT just the way it was. For me, they ruined it when they changed the musical score and some of the show scenes. The old saying is true, "if something is not broke, don't fix it!"
