Groovy, Baby!
28 May 2001 | by meowthewSee all my reviews

This is the Disney theme park special to top all Disney theme park specials. Yeah, it's unbelievably corny, but it's solid gold in my book.

The song and dance numbers are second to none in coolness, especially the "Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah" number down Main Street, USA and the "There's More" sequence (Just who were those talented kids, and what ever happened to them?). And the "Today is Mine" number that Glen Campbell starts the show with is awe-inspiring, to say the least.

Despite the largely overcast skies throughout the show, you know sunny days are ahead at Walt Disney World when you watch this rarely-shown classic.
