Unique First Experience of the Disneyland Band
Recently, Ken Potrock, President of Disneyland Resort, had a unique first experience of the Disneyland Band. Impressively, the band rehearsed on Main Street, U.S.A. late Tuesday night.
As a matter of fact, the musicians wore street attire and safety vests rather than their classic uniforms. Indeed, Potrock was amazed by the superb event.
History of the Disneyland Band
While opening Disneyland, Walt Disney’s desire was for a hometown band to entertain the crowds. Since there were no sound systems in 1955, the Disneyland Band strategically projected the music.
At first, the Disneyland Band was supposed to perform for two weeks. However, the band continued to play due to its popularity, and it still performs today!
Fewer Restrictions, More Experiences
Recently, the Disney Parks lessened their mandates and restrictions. Also, additional Disney entertainment is returning to the parks, including shows, dining locations, resorts, and fireworks spectaculars.
Nevertheless, it may feel peculiar to experience them due to last year’s restrictions. Although it was always emotional to hear the Disneyland Band play, it is especially powerful now.
An Instagram-Worthy Incident
Ken Potrock became President of Disneyland Resort in May 2020. However, he did not initially experience the magic as Disneyland’s new president due to the shutdown.
However, Potrock had the exclusive opportunity to watch the Disneyland Band’s rehearsal.
Potrock posted this message on Instagram after watching the band. He wrote, “My first time seeing the Disneyland Band was during yesterday’s near-midnight rehearsal. Watching them gave me goosebumps as they prepare for their return to the park on Friday. #disneyland”
Yes, the musicians are truly talented if they give grown men, especially the President of Disneyland Resort, goosebumps! Disneyland fans excitedly await Friday’s performances.
Time to Celebrate
Thankfully, entertainment is rapidly returning to the Disney Parks! Lucky for him, Ken Potrock will never forget his unique first experience of the Disneyland Band.
Now, we anticipate the upcoming months in Disneyland and Walt Disney World. Indeed, it is an exciting time for Disney fans as we welcome back the entertainment!
