In my opinion, the Stage Shows are one of the most overlooked experiences in Walt Disney World.
When planning that magical trip, Guests are all about looking for the best attractions and food.
It’s not often that my clients ask me where the best shows on Walt Disney World property are.
If you’re someone who prioritizes the rides over everything else, take some time out of your day to enjoy the Stage Shows. It just may change the way you look at the Disney Parks.
5 Reasons You Should See The Disney Stage Shows
They give you a chance to rest your feet
If you have plans of going from Rope Drop to Park Closing, you will need to rest your feet every once in awhile.
Walking around all day takes a toll on your energy and your feet, resulting in those painful blisters.
Shows are just long enough to relax, (hopefully) cool down, and maybe even take your shoes off.
After 2 successful trips with my Teva Sandals, I can go to Disney all week without ever getting a blister. But, if I’m going to make it through an entire week, I know I still need that rest time.
If you’re worried about sandal straps rubbing against your feet, apply some anti-blister balm before you leave your room in the morning.
They’re perfect for killing time in between reservations
Even with all the Fastpasses and Dining Reservations, there will be times when you find yourself with large gaps in your day.
It may be tempting to run around the Park to “try to ride something” before your next reservation.
But, a Disney vacation is exhausting. Instead of running around, check the My Disney Experience times guide and see if there is a show nearby.
You don’t need a Fastpass
Unless you want to guarantee a prime location in the theater, you normally don’t need a fastpass to see the Stage Shows.
The lines aren’t usually too long. And even if they are, the theaters can hold many people. So, you’ll most likely still get in the theater before they shut the doors.
This makes Stage Shows perfect for those last minute decisions.
If it looks like it’s going to rain or the lines for the attractions are ridiculously long, head for the nearest theater before the frustration sets in.

There’s something for everyone
I have 2 teenage boys, so the last thing show you’d expect us to have seen a few times is a Frozen Sing-a-long.
Do they cover their ears when it comes time to sing Let it go? Most likely.
But, the rest of the time they’re laughing at the historians’ jokes and enjoying the rest of the show.
Whether it’s with music or audience involvement, Disney does a great job at making the shows as appealing to every age group as possible.
And with the shows averaging about 15 minutes, even if you have a real-life Grumpy in your family, they won’t be forced to sit there for hours.
They are amazing
Cast Members have to go through rigorous auditions. So, when you see a Stage Show, you know that you’re getting the best of the best.
Between the costumes, the singing, and the acting, it’s sometimes easy to forget that you are in the middle of a Theme Park.
While there’s still a few shows that we have yet to see, there are others that we’ve seen on multiple occasions. And that’s simply because we love them.
