Attraction development

The attraction is unique in being one of a very select amount of attractions in Disney theme parks in which Walt Disney Imagineering has collaborated with another division of The Walt Disney Company - in this instance it was Walt Disney Feature Animation.

Goofy, the Opera House's stage manager, admits guests into the concert hall, where final preparations for the performance are underway. Unfortunately, Donald Duck has gone missing just as Goofy raises the curtains to reveal an empty stage, except for a conductor's podium and a small steamer trunk, within which Donald is sleeping. Mickey asks Donald to unpack the instruments, then places his famous Sorcerer's Hat on the podium, telling Donald not to touch it. After Donald unpacks all the instruments, including a grand piano, from the small trunk, he is tempted to try on the Sorcerer's Hat himself. He does so, which causes the magical instruments to come to life. However, when Donald bullies a small flute, the other instruments rebel, creating a whirlwind of magic and music. He loses the hat into the maelstrom, and passes through scenes from The Little Mermaid, Fantasia, Aladdin, Peter Pan, The Lion King, and Beauty and the Beast while trying to retrieve the hat. At the end of the show, Donald flies out of the screen, and when the audience turns around, they can see him sticking out of the wall behind them. This article is about the Disney character. ...
