Maestro Goofy conducts!

Instant Concert! …Just Add Water

Guy Selga says:

I liked it. It takes almost no effort to see; we walked up two minutes before show time and stood right in front of Goofy. Nice little show–it reminds me of the old Goofy instructional cartoons!

Our Rating: 3.5 stars

  • What it is: Musical fountain show
  • Scope and scale: Diversion
  • When to go: See Times Guide or Lines mobile app for schedule
  • Duration: About 5 minutes
Description And Comments

With background narration that hearkens back to cartoon shorts of the past, Maestro Goofy attempts to direct a short concert in Paradise Park. Of course, the orchestra is invisible, but the Paradise Bay fountains used in World of Color respond to the music in a spectacular way. The result is a short bit of comedic entertainment.

Touring Tips

There concerts are short, and the viewing area is ample, so there is currently no need to show up early.

Special Comments

There is no seating, so be prepared to stand. Instant Concert! …Just Add Water takes place several times a day on Paradise Bay. There are currently three different pieces of music; one is performed at each show, so if you enjoy it, return later to see one of the other performances!


All eyes in the theme park industry turn this week to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, where the grand re-opening of Disney California Adventure is being celebrated in the high style befitting the finish line of a billion-dollar makeover marathon. Before this massive expansion officially opens to the public on June 15, invited media and paying sneak-preview participants will have already had their way with the new attractions of Cars Land and Buena Vista Street, and naturally the team is there on the scene. Touring Plans’ official photographer Tom Bricker, Unofficial Guide to Disneyland co-author Seth Kubersky, and new Touring Plans researcher Guy Selga, Jr. will all be on-property this week, documenting every detail to your touring advantage. Over the next few days, please check back on the blog for our hot-off-the-press first reviews direct from DCA, edited versions of which will appear in the 2013 edition of the Unofficial Guide.
