Mickey's conducting and Donald's disrupting — until a tornado hits the orchestra! Swing through the air in your musical chair as Mickey's barnyard orchestra plays William Tell's "The Storm"!
The Swinging Sensation
When the tornado takes hold, your seat rises higher, the carnival top tilting this way and that to give you a unique view of Disney California Adventure Park. For a minute and a half, your feet dangle free as the swings fly through the air around the tower topped by the Maestro Mickey himself! Scenes from the short painted on the ride's tower transform from still to storm as the central tower telescopes upward.
"The Band Concert"
The ride was inspired by the classic Mickey Mouse cartoon short, "The Band Concert." Released in 1935, it featured a frazzled Mickey trying to conduct an outdoor orchestra as Donald Duck becomes a sort of Pied Piper, leading the strings astray with his flute to play a more patriotic tune. But it all goes haywire when they strike up William Tell's "The Storm." In the mistral of minstrels, Mother Nature ties the tune in knots with her winds, landing the ever-so-dedicated players in a tree. Somehow, Donald manages to get the last note.
