Mickey and the Magical Map (Disneyland)

*Sung lyrics in bold.

(Music begins. Curtain starts to rise.)

YEN SID (Voiceover)
Not long ago, on a day not unlike today, one of my most fascinating creations was nearly complete. It was a map unlike any other—a wondrous map, with power to transport dreamers to any place imaginable.

(Steps read “Mickey and the Magical Map.” Music changes to “The Sorcerer’s Apprentice,” and dancers carrying paintbrushes enter down the stairs. YEN SID appears on screen.)

YEN SID
And yet, the map was still unfinished…

(SPOT descends from above the map and lands in place. Music changes.)

FEMALE SOLIST
There’s a feeling that you were meant to find.
Let the voice of inspiration be your guide.

MALE AND FEMALE SOLOISTS
Every color, every wonder that your heart has inside…

FEMALE SOLIST
Find your direction, feel the connection,
Follow the light!

CHORUS
(Light, light, light.)

If we all believe in a world of dreams,
And imagination…
If we overcome, there’s no way to know
Where this spark will take us.
So much more than a destination.

FEMALE SOLOIST
A journey to imagination!

(MICKEY MOUSE enters, carrying two paint buckets. He wipes his brow.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Whew. (He sees a paintbrush left unattended and gasps. He runs over to it and picks it up.)

YEN SID
(Appearing on screen behind MICKEY MOUSE.) You are an apprentice, Mickey. Someday, when you learn the secret of the map, then you may join the others.

MICKEY MOUSE
(Disappointed.) Oh, gosh.

FEMALE SOLOIST
When we get lost,
And we don’t know which way we’re going…

MALE SOLOIST
Look inside and trust…

MALE AND FEMALE SOLOISTS
We’ll get there!
We’ll get there!

CHORUS
If we all believe in a world of dreams,
And imagination…
If we overcome, there’s no way to know
Where this spark will take us.
So much more than a destination.

A journey…

MALE SOLOIST
Journey…

CHORUS
Journey to imagination!

MALE SOLOIST
Imagination.

CHORUS
Imagination!

(Applause. CHORUS exits, leaving MICKEY MOUSE alone. He notices the black SPOT.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Hey, wait—you missed a spot! Hmmm… Now’s my chance. Maybe if I paint this spot, Master Yen Sid will let me become a mapmaker. Huh, nobody’s looking—what could it hurt? (Chuckles.) I’ll finish painting the map. (He picks up a paintbrush and pokes the SPOT, which comes to life and makes squeaking noise.) What was that? (SPOT runs away from the brush.) Oh, you wanna play? Oh, you’re ticklish aren’t ya?

SPOT
Uh-huh!

MICKEY MOUSE
Hey spot, come back. (SPOT jumps over MICKEY MOUSE and moves the compass on the map.) I gotta finish painting ya. (Map begins to move.) Woah—uh, this map is magic!

(Map parts in the center to reveal jungle dancers and KING LOUIE.)

KING LOUIE
Now, I’m the king of the swingers,
Ooh, the jungle VIP.
I’ve reached the top, and had to stop,
And that’s what’s a-botherin’ me

I wanna be a man, man cub,
And stroll right into town.
And be just like the other men—
I’m tired of monkeying around.

Oh, oobee doo,
I wanna be like you.
I wanna walk like you,
Talk like you too.
You see it’s true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human too!

(Dance break with trumpet solo. KING LOUIE scats.)

KING LOUIE
Oh, wanna be, wanna be,
Wanna be like you.
Walk like, talk like—
Just wanna be like you!

Oh, oobee doo,
I wanna be like you.
I wanna walk like you,
Talk like you too.
You see it’s true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human too

(KING LOUIE and CHORUS scat.)

KING LOUIE
You see it’s true,
An ape like me
Can learn to be human too.
(Scat.)
Can learn to be human too!

(Applause. Map starts moving. MICKEY MOUSE pops up out of paint can.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Woah, huh—what just happened?! All right Spot, where’d you go? (SPOT makes a noise and emerges from his hiding place. He squirts purple paint at MICKEY MOUSE.) Hey!You’re not supposed to paint me—I’m supposed to paint you! Take that! (He throws blue paint at SPOT.) Uh, hey! What’re ya doing? (SPOT engulfs the area below MICKEY MOUSE, and he begins to move down into the map.) I’m sinking… into the map! (He appears as part of the map and grabs on to the “W” on the compass, which starts to fly.) Oh boy! Wow—this is amazing! Whoa! I’m flying!

(MICKEY MOUSE flies off the map. It begins to turn blue with the sound of rushing water. POCAHONTAS rises up from the map as music changes to “Just Around the Riverbend.”)

POCAHONTAS
What I love most about rivers is:
You can’t step in the same river twice.
The water’s always changing, always flowing.
But people, I guess, can’t live like that,
We all must pay a price.
To be safe, we lose our chance of ever knowing
What’s around the riverbend.
Waiting just around the riverbend!

I look once more,
Just around the riverbend.
Beyond the shore,
Where the gulls fly free.
Don’t know what for!
What I dream the day might send,
Just around the riverbend.
For me…
Coming for me.

(MULAN enters, and music changes to “Reflection.”)

MULAN
Who is that girl I see
Staring straight back at me?
Why is my reflection someone I don’t know?
Somehow, I cannot hide
Who I am, though I’ve tried.
When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

When will my reflection show
Who I am inside?

(RAPUNZEL enters. Music changes to “I See the Light.”)

RAPUNZEL
All those days watching from the windows,
All those years outside looking in.
All that time never even knowing
Just how blind I’ve been.

(FLYNN RIDER enters.)

FLYNN RIDER
Now she’s here…

RAPUNZEL
Now I’m here…

FLYNN RIDER
Shining in the starlight.

RAPUNZEL
Blinking in the starlight.

FLYNN RIDER
Now she’s here…

RAPUNZEL
Now I’m here…

FLYNN RIDER
Suddenly, I see…

RAPUNZEL
Suddenly, I see…

FLYNN RIDER
If she’s here…

RAPUNZEL
Standing here…

FLYNN RIDER
It’s crystal clear…

RAPUNZEL
It’s oh, so clear…

FLYNN RIDER AND RAPUNZEL
I’m where I’m meant to go!

FLYNN RIDER, RAPUNZEL, MULAN, AND POCAHONTAS
And at last I see the light…

FLYNN RIDER
And it’s like the fog has lifted.

FLYNN RIDER, RAPUNZEL, MULAN, AND POCAHONTAS
And at last I see the light…

RAPUNZEL
And it’s like the sky is new.

FLYNN RIDER AND RAPUNZEL
And it’s warm, and real, and bright,
And the world has somehow shifted.
All at once, everything is different,
Now that I see you.

POCAHONTAS
Is all my dreaming at an end?

FLYNN RIDER, RAPUNZEL, MULAN, AND POCAHONTAS
And it’s warm, and real, and bright,
And the world has somehow shifted.

MULAN
When will my reflection show—

FLYNN RIDER AND RAPUNZEL
All at once, everything is different,
Now that I see you.

POCAHONTAS
Just around the riverbend!

MULAN
Who I am inside?

(Applause. Quartet exits. SPOT re-enters, followed by MICKEY MOUSE.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Oh, Spot… No use hiding. (SPOT makes noise.) I’m putting the brush down. (He pretends to put the brush down and SPOT naively believes him. He comes out and MICKEY MOUSE almost paints him. He runs away again.) I’ll getcha! Fine… if you won’t come to me, I’ll come to you! (He splashes paint in the shape of a staircase.) Look what I just painted! (He grabs SPOT, who struggles.) Gotcha! Stop squirming! (SPOT escapes and crashes into the compass. Water begins gushing out.) Uh oh—looks like we sprung a leak. Better hold my breath… Now where are we going?

(MICKEY MOUSE and SPOT exit as the map descends into the ocean. “Under the Sea” begins playing as dancers and SEBASTIAN enter.)

SEBASTIAN
Hey! Hahaha…

The seaweed is always greener
In someody else’s lake.
You dream about going up there,
But that is a big mistake.
Just look at the world around you,
Right here on the ocean floor.
Such wonderful things surround you—
What more is you looking for?

CHORUS
Under the sea.
Under the sea.

SEBASTIAN
Darling, it’s better
Down where it’s wetter.
Take it from me.

Up on the shore, they work all day.
Out in the sun, they slave away,
While we devoting
Full time to floating,
Under the sea.

Hahaha, yay!

(Dance break. Dancers get inside giant bubbles.)

SEBASTIAN
Here we go now!

The newt play the flute,
The carp pay the harp.
The plaice play the bass,
And they sounding sharp.
The bass play the brass,
The chub play the tub.
The fluke is the duke of soul (yeah!).

The ray he can play
He lings on the strings.
The trout rocking out,
The blackfish she sings.
The smelt and the sprat,
They know where it’s at.
And oh, that blowfish blow!

Under the sea.

CHORUS
Under the sea.

SEBASTIAN
Under the sea.

CHORUS
Under the sea.

SEBASTIAN
When the sardine
Begin the beguine,
It’s music to me!
What do they got?

CHORUS
A lot of sand!

SEBASTIAN
We got a hot crustacean band.
Each little clam here
Know how to jam here,
Under the sea!

Each little slug here,
Cuttin’ a rug here,
Under the sea!

Each little snail here
Know how to wail here.
That’s why it’s hotter
Under the water.

Ya, we in luck here ,
Down in the muck here.
Under the sea!

(Applause. SEBASTIAN and dancers exit. SPOT appear on the map, which is drained of water. MICKEY MOUSE rushes in. SPOT taunts him, forming the shape of a Hidden Mickey.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Ah, come back here! Ooh, boy. (He dumps red paint on the SPOT, who screams.) Ha, take that. (SPOT shakes off the paint.) What? (MICKEY MOUSE traps SPOT under his bucket.) Gotcha!I’m gonna paint you—like it or not!I just gotta be a mapmaker! (SPOT yells and eventually whimpers under the bucket.) Oh gosh.What am I doing? (He lets SPOT out.) I never thought, maybe you just never wanted to be painted. (SPOT celebrates getting through to him.) Aww, you’re a masterpiece just the way you are! (They high-five.) Aw, one more adventure together? What do you say, pal? (SPOT excitedly jumps onto the compass “S.”) All right—you lead the way! (MICKEY MOUSE joins him on the “S,” which begins to fly.) Oh boy! This is the best!

(Music for “Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride” begins.)

Aloha ē, aloha ē
ʻAnoʻai ke aloha ē

(STITCH appears on the map, and dancers enter.)

MALE SOLOIST
There is no place I’d rather be

MALE SOLOIST
Lingering in the ocean blue,

I’d play ’til the sun sets
Beyond the horizon.

CHORUS
It’s time to try the Hawaiian roller coaster ride.

ʻĀwikiwiki mai lohilohi

MICKEY MOUSE
Aloha! Cowabunga! (The map swirls and YEN SID appears to life MICKEY MOUSE back out.) Gosh sir, where’d you come from?

YEN SID
You see, Mickey—by leaving that spot unfinished, you’ve discovered the secret of the map. The map contains never-ending magic, for it will never be completed—not as long as there is imagination left in the world. And now you have found this for yourself, you are no longer an apprentice.

(Dancer enters and gives MICKEY MOUSE a paintbrush.)

MICKEY MOUSE
For me? Wow!

YEN SID
And so, my young friend, it is up to you choose where the magic will take you. The possibilities are endless. (He disappears.)

MICKEY MOUSE
Oh boy. This’ll be great!

(MICKEY MOUSE uses the paintbrush to draw an arc. The compass reappears on the map, and then it opens from the center to reveal TIANA on her showboat. Dancers enter to “Dig a Little Deeper.”)

TIANA
It don’t matter what you look like.

CHORUS
No!

TIANA
It don’t matter what you wear!
How many rings you wear on your fingers—
We don’t care!

CHORUS
No, we don’t care!

TIANA
Don’t matter where you come from.

CHORUS
No!

TIANA
Don’t even matter what you are!
Big, tall, short, and small—
We got ’em all in here!

CHORUS
We got ’em all in here!

TIANA
And they all knew what they wanted,
What they wanted me to do.
I told them what they needed—
Just like I be telling you!

CHORUS
You gotta dig a little deeper…

TIANA
To find out who you are.

CHORUS
You gotta dig a little deeper!

TIANA
It really ain’t that far.
When you found out who you are,
You find out what you need.

CHORUS
Blue skies and sunshine,
Guaranteed!

(Dance break with trumpet solo.)

TIANA
You gotta dig!

CHORUS
Dig!!

TIANA
You gotta dig!

CHORUS
Dig!!
You gotta dig a little deeper!

TIANA
For you it’s gonna be tough.

CHORUS
You gotta dig a little deeper!

TIANA
You ain’t dug down far enough!
Dig down deep inside yourself,
And find out what you need.

CHORUS
Blue skies and sunshine,
Blue skies and sunshine,
Blue skies and sunshine…

TIANA
Guaranteed.
Guaranteed!

MICKEY MOUSE
(Entering.) Come on everybody—join in!

CHORUS
If we all believe in a world of dreams
And imagination.
If we overcome, there’s no way to know
Where this spark will take us!

So much more than a destination!
Journey, journey, journey…
To imagination!

Journey to imagination!

(Applause. Curtain call begins.)

CHORUS
Journey, journey, journey
To imagination!

MICKEY MOUSE
Goodbye, everybody! See ya real soon!

(SPOT shrieks with excitement and flies across the map.)

MICKEY MOUSE
(Chuckles.) Let the journey continue!

(MICKEY MOUSE exits. Show ends.)
