Dancin' with Disney

Is this character dance party still happening? My kids and their cousins had an amazing time with it last year and are hoping to do it again next week!

It is near the Muppets, if memory serves, and is a dance party. They play fun dance music and every 1/2 hour or so, a different group of characters comes out to dance with the crowd. They don't pose or sign autographs, just dance and mingle. It was loads of fun, and there were chairs for tired parents to rest!

When we went in, the characters were all villains, cruella, hook, etc. Our boys were 9 and 12 and they had a great time. I agree that the chairs were welcome!

Is it just me or does this sound crazy to me? I've seen the YouTube video, I've heard everyone talking about it, but I can't wrap my brain around it! Captain Hook dancing sounds creepy, hilarious and enticing. I am extremely intrigued!

My kids will LOVE THIS...we were at WDW for New Years and I have the best pictures of my daughter dancing with Stitch and my young son being fascinated with Chip and Dale...

Sounds like they have a variety of characters too as well...

WDW has the same dance party nearly every day, the NY one was special due to the Elvis and yellow vest overlays.

The DL version is unique in that some rare characters do appear, Clarice, Clara Cluck, Prince John, Abby Mallard, Sheriff of Nottingham, Big Bad Wolf...

Last year they rotated "the girls" with "the mischief makers(including villains).

Andy Castro posted pics of some of the mischief makers, still havent seen what the other rotation is this year.

The rotation is the same this year...mischief makers and the girls of Disney. Basically the same characters as last year.

Is this something that gets listed in the entertainment schedule? And does "by the Muppets" mean by the Muppets theater in DCA near the Monsters ride and where the Mad T Party happens? It sounds like fun, and my kids like the dance party led by DJ in CL, so I'd like to try this, too.

I'm here now. Captain Hook danced in a circle with my DD2 and a CM. Priceless!

I think every half hour they have a new cast of characters with a theme. We only went for the last half hour. The theme was mischief makers and we has Captain Hook, Mr. Snee, Lilo, Stich, the Genie, Timba, and the Big Bad Wolf. They must have dug up their old costumes.

I remember they did list it on the schedule previously and I think it is on the schedule this month. It is in a building known as Stage 17, which is between the Muppets and Monster's. I believe there is a sign up and the doors are open. Have fun!
