The all-new Disney Junior Dance Party is at Disney’s Hollywood Studios and is PERFECT for your tots, preschoolers and kindergartners!
We were invited to attend a Disney Junior Dance Party showing as part of a media event. All content and opinions expressed are ours alone.
A few days ago the kids and I headed out to Hollywood Studios to check out the all-new Disney Junior Dance Party. Hollywood Studios is quickly becoming one of our favorite parks for the younger kids ages 2-6. My kids are 5 and 3 currently and love all there is to offer here. (Visit our post on Hollywood Studios for Preschoolers for more info.)
Disney Junior Dance Party
The all new, revamped Disney Junior Dance Party debuted in December 2018 and now features our kid’s favorite Disney Jr characters including Vampirina, Doc McStuffins, Mickey & the Roadster Racers and even Timon from The Lion King. This 20 minute show features high-energy music that will get your kids up on their feet and dancing to the beats by DJ Deejay and Finn Fiesta. The show is super-interactive and engaging for little ones. Deejay will involve your kids in getting the party started and have them free-styling to their favorite Disney Jr songs.
About the Show
As I mentioned, the show is 20 minutes long and great for children ages 2-6. When you enter the room, kids can find a spot on the floor up near the stage and listen to music before the show begins. DJ Deejay comes out with her turntable aka iPad and gets the kids involved pushing buttons to start the party up! You will be visited by Vampirina where she teaches everyone how to do the Spine Chiller (which happens to be Isabella’s favorite dance from the show!).
Doc McStuffins also makes an appearance with Chilly up on screen. We had to cool down the room with snow (or maybe it was bubbles hehe) to help him feel better. While all this is going on, the kids are up dancing, singing, moving and getting ready for Mickey to race his way into the show since he was en route. Timon makes his appearance and performs a crowd favorite, Zuka Zama Zom Zom Zom.
Looking for a 5 yr old’s perspective on the show? MegForIt’s daughter takes you through her tale of the dance party (and it’s hilarious). Check it out here.
Be sure to head out to Animation Courtyard to get a chance to meet Sofia the First, Vampirina and Doc McStuffins (times vary by day).
We spent the rest of the day going through Toy Story Land, checking out the new Celebrate the Incredibles on Pixar Avenue, and watching our favorite shows: Muppets Vision 3D and for the First Time in Forever: a Frozen Sing-Along. (If you’re into Star Wars – check out This Messy Season’s post on spending the day at Hollywood Studios with Preschoolers. She’s a fun mama of two boys, ages 4 and 6.) We stopped off at the ABC Commissary for lunch and Joffrey’s Coffee for bigger-than-your-face sprinkle donuts and iced coffee.
Disney is perfect for all ages. As proof, Amber Likes is a mom of 5, ages 5-13 and shares her love of Disney on her blog. Be sure to check it out here.
