The Disney Parks blog today confirmed that the ‘Mad T Party,’ a street entertainment venue based on Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland will be replacing ElecTRONica this summer. Although we were not the first to discuss the entertainment offering, we did correctly identify its title to a t back in September of last year.
Taking place in the evenings in the Hollywood Backlot area of Disney California Adventure at the Disneyland Resort, guests will pass through a ‘surreal rabbit hole’ entrance and find the same types of offerings one would find at ElecTRONica, only themed to the new Alice in Wonderland overlay. In addition to a DJ and live band, Disney California Adventure also promises a ‘variety of performance artists.’
According to an casting notice, performances are scheduled to begin in late May and will feature a ‘one-of-a-kind’ 5 piece band featuring a male lead vocal, male bassist, male or female drummer, female guitarist and a male or female keyboardist. Songs to be performed will include ‘classic rock material’ such as Journey’s ‘Don’t Stop Believin,’ The Isley Brother’s ‘Shout,’ Buster Poindexter’s ‘Hot Hot Hot,’ Queen’s ‘We Will Rock You,’ ‘and more’
