Description

Join pop culture humorist and author Charles Phoenix in this rare Florida performance as he sweeps us away on a fun-filled adventure to the early days of Disneyland when every visit was a day worth dressing for! We're bringing you two shows on Sat, April 28, at 11am and 2pm at Disney's Grand Floridian Resort.

With his trademark enthusiasm, quick wit, and keen eye for oddball detail, Charles pulls from his vast collection of real “found” vintage slides and tells the amazing back-stories and glories of a visit to mid-century Disneyland. Enjoy legendary long-gone attractions such as The House of the Future, Skyway, Skull Rock, Rainbow Caverns, Flying Saucers, and The Carousel of Progress, all populated with guests dressed in fabulous 50’s and 60’s fashions. Come experience all this and much more projected on the big screen in glorious KODACHROME color!

DETAILS: Shows runs 80 min, all seats general admission. A limited number of tickets may also be available at the door. Show is appropriate for all ages. Seating is on a first come, first served basis. Children 3 and under do not require tickets. Refunds will only be issued should the show be canceled.

Select the Breakfast ticket option for the 11am show and join Charles from 9-10:30am for a traditional breakfast buffet (plus Mickey waffles!) in the Grand Floridian Conference Center before your show.
