Disclaimer: This post was created in partnership with Walt Disney World Resort. My family and I were invited to check out the all-new Disney Junior Dance Party! but as always, all opinions are entirely my own. Theme park tickets were provided by Disney in order to facilitate this post!
Visiting Walt Disney World Resort always has a way of making me feel free, alive, and filled with endless wonder. That feeling of complete and utter childlike joy never lessens — even now that I live minutes from the Magic.
Yes, friends. Most of you already know I love all things Disney. But did you know that I moved less than 2 miles from Magic Kingdom Park?
I’ll explain more of why I made the huge move soon, but *spoiler alert*: it was 100% worth it.
At Walt Disney World, my worries dissipate, my anxiety lessens and my joy heightens. It is truly magical.
Want to know what else happens to me at Walt Disney World? For some reason, when I’m in a Walt Disney World theme park, I just can’t help but want to dance, sing and laugh ALL THE TIME!
Fortunately for me and my family, the Disney Junior Dance Party! has made its way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. With it comes a heap of giggles, new memories, and some killer dance moves — if I do say so myself. Don’t believe me? Ask Mickey Mouse! He saw it all go down.
Our visit to the Disney Junior Dance Party!
Have you ever wanted to hang out with Vampirina, Mickey Mouse, Doc McStuffins and Timon? Does partying it up with your favorite Disney Junior characters make you scream “hot diggity dog!”?
If you’re ready to show off your wackiest, goofiest and most magical dance movies, then the Disney Junior Dance Party! is practically perfect for you.
Guests of all ages will enjoy the Disney Junior Dance Party! Yes, even you, mama! So “ready, set, twirl” your way to Disney’s Hollywood Studios for the best dance party of your life.
As special Guests of Mickey Mouse himself, my family was invited to shake it out at the new Disney Junior Dance Party! in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
The show kicks off with my daughter’s favorite — Vampirina! The crowd absolutely loved it when she came out! She taught us her spookiest dance moves, made us giggle, and made sure we knew the party had started!
Vampirina is also available for pictures and autographs right outside of the theater in the Animation Courtyard. I captured such a sweet moment with her when she saw my daughter’s Vampirina doll. It was truly priceless!
Joining Vampirina and also showing off their greatest dance moves at the Disney Junior Dance Party! are Timon from The Lion Guard, the amazing Doc McStuffins and the main mouse himself — Mickey Mouse!
DJ Deejay and Finn Fiesta help the crowd usher in our special Disney Junior Dance Party! friends by having us yell “ready, set, twirl!” and follow a special dance move. I love that this kept the kids on their feet and made it a truly interactive experience.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios for Little Ones!
There is so much for little ones to do at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Beyond the Disney Junior Dance Party! there are special character experiences, attractions that are suitable for young kids, awesome stage shows, and of course — Toy Story Land!
Coming March 31, 2019 is Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy! According to Walt Disney World Resort, Lightning McQueen’s Racing Academy is a “high-octane, first-of-its-kind show that’ll put you right in the middle of the Cars universe.” We are so excited to check it out!
As if that weren’t enough, a new attraction featuring Mickey and Minnie Mouse is coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios soon! In fact, this is really exciting because it’s the FIRST Mickey-themed ride-through attraction EVER.
**Be still my Mickey-loving heart!**
It will be called Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and will feature a new technology that Disney is calling “2 1/2 D” — no glasses required!
According to the Disney Parks Blog, Walt Disney Imagineer Kevin Rafferty said his teams are inventing a new technology that will turn the flat world of a colorful cartoon short into a “dimensional display of amazingness.”
Also at Disney’s Hollywood Studios is Voyage of the Little Mermaid! This stage show is seriously underrated. It is perfect for kids of all ages, not too long (it keeps their attention!), and features Ariel, Ursula and some awesome puppetry!
With so much to see and do, the perfect time to visit Disney’s Hollywood Studios with little ones is right now!
Stay tuned for even more information on everything coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios in 2019 — and beyond! #NowMoreThanEver
