Toy Story - The Musical, the new show onboard the Disney Wonder cruise ship had its premiere on April 10th while in dock at Port Canaveral. The show, which replaces Hercules: The MUSE-ical, follows the story of the original Toy Story film. As the press release states:

Taking audiences into that world was no small task. Larger-than-life show sets help transform the 977-seat Walt Disney Theatre into a toy-sized world of fun and adventure.

Using Randy Newman’s Oscar nominated hit song “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” as a departure point, this production has a new seven-song score that brings the story to life. New York-based Valerie Vigoda and Brendan Milburn from the band GrooveLily blended together pop, rock and folk music to create a contemporary score that truly captures the heartfelt whimsy of the animated tale.

The costumes for “Toy Story-The Musical” are some of the most complex ever developed for a Disney Cruise Line production. Costume designer Ann Closs-Farley created an extraordinary vision for what the characters would look like on stage. With a combination of articulated puppets and inflatable costumes, the “Toy Story” characters come to life – including a nearly 9-foot-tall version of Rex the dinosaur and a 4-foot-round Hamm the piggybank.

In all, “Toy Story-The Musical” represents one of the largest productions ever developed for a cruise ship. This is just the second time a Pixar animated feature has been adapted for the stage by Disney Creative Entertainment. In early 2007, “Finding Nemo-The Musical” debuted at Disney’s Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney World Resort and has been a tremendous success.

This article includes nearly 100 pictures from the show, video clips, an introduction by Disney Parks Chief Jay Rasulo and Toy Story director John Lasseter and presentations and Q&A with the show's creative team.

Toy Story - The Musical can only been seen onboard the Disney Cruise Lines. For more information on Disney Cruises, see Trips can also be booked there or via your travel agent. recommends - the Official Travel Agency of - for all your Disney travel needs.
