Disneyland Magical Moments: Pearly Band with Mary Poppins & Bert, Peter Pan & Captain Hook, Princesses, Hillbillies, Asimo and Main Street USA fun – Photos & Video

Hi everyone!

We just returned from a wonderful (and busy!) 2 week trip to Southern California (below, left). We spent the beginning of the trip at the D23 Expo, a day at Sea World San Diego and another day exploring the L.A. area – including a visit to a Tim Burton exhibit. But the rest of the time was spent at Disneyland (below, left). We visit Disneyland each year, and always find many “magical moments” to be had. One was a show in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle with Mary Poppins, Bert, and the Pearly Band (below, right).  We’ve never seen it before, and it’s a fantastic show!

  

Mary Poppins and Bert (below, left) dance around the front of Sleeping Beauty Castle. Mary (below, right) lifts her umbrella high in the air. The songs include “Jolly Holiday“, “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious“, “Step in Time and others and it’s really something not to be missed!

 

Video #1 – Disneyland Pearly Band with Mary Poppins and Bert perform at Sleeping Beauty Castle – Mary Poppins and Bert dance along as the Disneyland Perly Band plays in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle! This is a fantastic show. Songs include “Jolly Holiday” and more from “Mary Poppins”!

We saw a lot of the Pearly band on this trip (below, left). Peter Pan and Captain Hook (below, right) also gave us another magical moment, with Peter (known at Disneyland as “Spieling Peter”) teaching guests how to flip coins into the Wishing Well.

 

Captain Hook and Peter (below, left) watch as the crowd gathers. At Disneyland, you often don’t know when or where you’ll find characters, and it’s fun to discover them! Peter (below, right) kneels on the ground to throw pennies into the Wishing Well, and he teaches other guests how to do it with the proper form.

  

Video #2 – Disneyland Magical Moment with Peter Pan (Spieling Peter) and Captain Hook at the Wishing Well – We were taking photos around the Wishing Well when Peter Pan and Captain Hook stopped by. Peter teaches guests how to throw coins into the Wishing Well! (and we love the salute to the band too)

After the Mary Poppins show, Bert called Denise over to take a photo after he saw her birthday button (below, left). Nearby, Ariel was standing with almost no wait, so we went and met her (below, right).

 

This little girl (below, left) had several minutes alone with Cinderella before other guests found the Princess. Cinderella held her hand and walked her over to some flowers to look at after this photo. We also went to Toontown to see Mickey Mouse at his house, and we found him in his Bandleader costume (below, right).

 

Billy Hill and the Hillbillies are always a favorite of ours, and this show was even more fun as the band goofed off with two sign language interpreters who were signing (below, left). We also took the time to see Asimo, an advanced robot who runs, talks, and can even kick a ball (below, right).

 

Pluto (below, left) busts a move in 90 degree heat as we watch from the Omnibus (below, left). We enjoy visiting the Penny Arcade, and I took the oppertunity to make Pinocchio dance for ony a quarter (below, right). At Disneyland it really is the little things that make it such a special place for us! There is so much more we’ll share, it was an incredible trip!

 

Video #3 – Disneyland Penny Arcade Dancing Pinnochio Game 2011 Main Street USA – There is an arcade still at Disneyland on Main Street USA (just like WDW used to have), and for .25 you can make Pinocchio dance!
