Our Top 5: Favorite Disney Parks Shows

Disney prides itself on some of the incredible shows they produce in the parks. It is extremely hard to narrow down our favorites, but we managed to pick our top five. Some of these shows are retired, but forever hold a special place in our hearts. We also have not all been to all Disney Parks, and so haven't seen all Disney Parks shows... these are just shows we've seen. We did not include parades in this article since there are so many. We will do a favorite parades post in the future. For now, here are our ratings, including where the shows are located and if they are retired:

As a little girl, I went to Disneyland a few times, but my true love of Disney sparked my freshman year of college. I had the chance to do a quick weekend trip to Disneyland with two friends. During this trip, I fell completely back in love with the entirety of the Walt Disney Company. It was then a few months later, my family ventured to the opposite coast and visited WDW. Here I met a CP, who inspired me to start my own Disney Journey. A few years later, I can’t get enough of Disney (ask anyone who knows me)!

I have been extremely blessed to become a Disneyland AP holder, Walt Disney World AP holder, go on a Disney Cruise, and visit Hong Kong Disneyland. In 2018, I will be visiting Disneyland Paris. I plan on eventually visiting Tokyo Disneyland and Shanghai Disneyland.

I love all things Disney food, Disney merch, and Disney entertainment. You can usually find me in the park, drinking a coke and waiting for a show or parade. If you ever see me, be sure to say hello! I love making new Disney Friends.
