Review: Limited Time Magic Golden Horseshoe Revue Dinner in Disneyland

Disney’s Limited Time Magic events have begun, and Disneyland is currently celebrating with “A Salute to the Golden Horseshoe Revue.” This is a nod to the original show that Walt Disney created in 1955.

The Golden Horseshoe at Disneyland

Show Details

The show features comedy, songs, and dancing set to a fun musical score that will make you want to dress up, put a feather in your hair, and learn to Can-Can.

Tables and Clean Glasses Available for Ladies!

Tuesdays through Mondays now until February 4th, the “flashback” show can be seen a few times a day with a special Annual Passholder only showing at 6:30.  The annual passholder show is $35 and you must make reservations in advance  though the annual passholders events line at  (714) 781-PASS.

The Annual Passholder show is a $35 ticketed event that includes dinner & reserved seating for the revue. If you’re not a passholder, stop at guest services to get a ticket to one of the earlier shows. 

Your Hostess for the Show: Miss Lilly

Golden Horseshoe Revue Tribute Show

Can-Can Dancers

Please note that the entertainment is exactly the same as the shows performed during the day. So, if you don’t feel a need to spend $35 or aren’t interested in the foods being served at the Annual Passholder event, I highly recommend you still go check out one of the Thursday through Monday tribute shows.

Eats

  • Starter: Corn chips in a souvenir Golden Horseshoe boot mug
  • Entrees: Black forest ham and roast beef sandwiches
  • Sides: Golden raisin and carrot salad, Yukon golden potato salad, Very Berry fruit salad
  • Children’s Menu (available upon request): 2 PB&J sandwiches with sides
  • Vegetarian Option (available upon request): Vegetable and cheese sandwiches with sides
  • Beverages: Mint Julep, water, coffee
  • Dessert: Walt & Lilly’s 30th Anniversary Celebration Cake

We started off with our table being adorned with Fritos in a boot. My absolute favorite item of the evening: Crunchy, salty Fritos served up in a take home souvenir Golden Horseshoe plastic boot (which I plan to fill with root beer floats at home in the near future).

Frito Filled "take home" Boots!

Drinks were then served, bottles of water or a bottomless Mint Julep if you prefer. We shared one at the table [Read more…]

It’s National Root Beer Float Day! Celebrate in Disney World and Disneyland!

I don’t know who comes up with these things, but today, August 6, is National Root Beer Float Day. Google it. It’s true. In honor of this frosty treat of perfection we are happy to share with you some Root Beer Floats of the Disney Parks.

Our first float comes to you from the newly opened Ghirardelli Store in Disney California Adventure.

Ghirardelli in Disney California Adventure

Ghirardelli uses hand scooped ice cream and serves their floats up in open-top plastic cups. You can opt for a cover, but not until you have a few sips/bites. It overflows quickly, so have your straw and spoon ready to take action!

Ghirardelli Root Beer Float

Next up, I give you the “Route” Beer Float served over at Disney California Adventure’s Cars Land. You can find this one in the Ice Cream Cone (Cone #2) over at the Cozy Cone Motel! [Read more…]
