"Disneyland Showtime" is an episode of The Wonderful World of Disney.


The Osmond Brothers, accompanied by Kurt Russell and E.J. Peaker, come to Disneyland to perform at a show being held there, but Donny and Jay Osmond go off to explore the park. Worried that they will miss the performance, the rest of the cast go to try and retrieve them before it is too late. They also visit the park's then-newest attraction The Haunted Mansion.

This episode from 1970 was the first episode from Disneyland without a real host, but it wasn't without stars. The closest thing this episode had to a host was Kurt Russell, an actor that Walt Disney was high on and, as usual, he proved to be right. Also, Donny Osmond joined his brothers to make the set complete. Actress E.J. Peaker also joined in on the fun.

Most of the episode dealt with the Osmonds looking for Donny, while at the same time, having to keep up a tight schedule as a deadline for a performance from the Osmond Brothers was coming up fast, but they had gotten separated, but they eventually find each other and have that perofrmance.

Later, Kurt Russell gives the viewers an inside look at the Haunted Mansion, the last Disneyland attraction that Walt Disney planned that opened at Disneyland. Walt had previewed that attraction, along with "Pirates of the Caribbean", on the Disneyland 10th Anniversary show back in 1965, but "The Haunted Mansion" did not open until 1969, two years after "Pirates of the Caribbean" opened.
