Fun From Beginning To End!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Sing Along Songs - Disneyland Fun (DVD)
My 2-year old son absolutely LOVES this video! My wife & I bought a used VHS copy of it, and from the moment we first put it on for him, he was enthralled and his eyes rarely move away from the screen whenever it's playing. We were surprised to find that it was available on DVD, so we bought it for our son's birthday recently, because the 17-year old tape was quickly wearing out!
"Disneyland Fun" was originally part of a 14 volume VHS video series released in the late 1980's; this particular video was filmed on location at Disneyland in 1990, and follows a singular group of children around the park as they participate in the various song sequences alongside many of the classic Disney characters. Even if you didn't know when it was shot, the time period is quite easy to detect with the brightly colored clothes and big hair on display everywhere, as well as the appearance of the then-new character Roger Rabbit, hot on the heels of his popularity from the 1988 film.
But as dated as the proceedings may be, there is a great deal of fun to be had, and the songs are timeless & downright infectious; they'll stick in your head like glue and you'll find yourself singing along them, even when you're not watching it! My son's favorites are "I'm Walking Right Down The Middle Of Main Street U.S.A.", and the all-time classics "It's A Small World" and "When You Wish Upon A Star", complete with an awesome, show-stopping fireworks display.
I'd recommend this video highly to anyone with children, but also as a way of appealing to the child in all of us; great fun!
