The Diamond Horseshoe is an attraction at the Magic Kingdom in Orlando, Florida and Tokyo Disneyland in Urayasu, Chiba, Japan. The original show ran until it was changed on October 1, 1986 and renamed Diamond Horseshoe Jamboree. Beginning April 7, 1995, reservations were no longer required and the show was extensively changed, returning to its original name. Guests could walk in at any time during the show, purchase counter-service food, and watch the entertainment. It ended February 1, 2003, and Goofy’s Country Dancin’ Jamboree began July 1, 2003. These attractions are based on the original Golden Horseshoe Revue, which opened at Disneyland in 1955.

History[edit]

The Diamond Horseshoe Revue was an opening day location in Magic Kingdom on October 1, 1971. The show was very similar to the one in Disneyland since the writer and comedian, Wally Boag, briefly relocated to Florida to get the new show up and running at the new park.

The “new” show also featured live music, sing along songs, and a can-can welcome with Slue Foot Sue. Pecos Bill even made an appearance.

The hour-long show was performed sometimes ten times daily until it was changed on October 1, 1986. At this point, the show was recognized in the Guinness Book of World Records as the longest running stage show of all time.

The 1986 changes renamed the show the Diamond Horseshoe Jamboree and required Advanced Dining Reservations for the first time, which could only be made by arriving at rope drop and going straight to Disneyana Collectibles on Main Street, U.S.A. upon arrival.

Nearly 10 years later, the show changed again and went under the Diamond Horseshoe Revue again. However, the menu was changed significantly and the restaurant went from a table-service restaurant to a quick-service restaurant. This version closed on February 1, 2003.

A few months later, Goofy’s Country Dancin’ Jamboree opened at the restaurant’s former location. The 18-minute character show closed less than a year later. For five years, until 2009, The Diamond Horseshoe sat empty and unused. They reopened seasonally selling sandwiches as a quick-service restaurant.

In recent times, the Walt Disney World version was a seasonal table-service restaurant with ADRs available, but no show and a empty stage with the exception of a player piano. Lunch was served from 1pm until 2:55pm; dinner started at 3 and went until 7.
