On Thursday, August 29th I met up with my buddy Josh and we hung out at the Magic Kingdom, had a bite to eat at Cosmic Rays (The half chicken meal was good and I only subjected Twitter followers to the photo of the food), did a few attractions and I wanted to stop in to see the Dog Days of Summer Dance Party. First I noticed Stitch as Lilo’s dog with his new accouterments.
One of the highlights of the dance party was Bolt. The dance party wasn’t very busy, but Bolt always had a number of people wanting to find a way to sneak a pic with him because he rarely visits Walt Disney World and never visits Magic Kingdom.
I wonder if DJ K9’s tshirt is available on Ebay or something? I really like the shirt and would have bought one, but all they had to offer was glowy stuff. They weren’t distributing the autograph cards as I had heard they were earlier in the week. The cards were shaped like a bone.
My favorite part was Squirt the Fire Hydrant! He was kind of like Push the Trashcan, but he squirted kids and rolled around. Many in the toddler crowd thought he was a new ride and tried to ride him around Tomorrowland. Parents thought it was funny. He had to stop each time a kid would climb on. He would be a cool addition to entertainment, but with parents not keeping little junior from riding him like a horse, we may never see him again.
Dug was on hand to dance with the kids of all ages. He looked really excited to finally be invited to a dance party. I never saw Rover from Carousel of Progress, apparently he’s still bolted to the floor?
Later on, Bolt was a little more willing to accomodate a few photo ops. He would pose then dance and move, then pose, then dance, then move, then pose. You get the picture…it’s right below.
