We ventured over to the Animal Kingdom’s Dinoland Dance-a-palooza dance party on Saturday afternoon. It was about 95 degrees, so everyone was pouring sweat with the 712% humidity that we experience here in tropical Florida.
I’ve previously documented a visit to the Dinoland Dance Party and I was able to dance with Gypsy Moth and Slim on that visit! You never know what characters will appear, but they tend to be the same for the Daily 3:30pm and 5:00pm shows. The characters are NOT available for regular meet and greets and do NOT sign autographs. They are there to dance and have fun.

From my viewpoint I saw Brer Bear, Chip, Meeko and Rafiki initially. Jordyn was all excited and I was wondering why she was jumping up and down to see these characters that we’ve met about 6 billion times previously. I know Chip and Meeko are great fun, but why the excitement?
I caught Mushu doing one of the few dance moves with which I’m familiar. It’s the classic John Travolta “Stayin’ Alive” pose. I’m pretty good at the lawn sprinkler and the grab your ankle and fall down move too. Mushu didn’t try the ankle thing.
Kids and families seem to love all the dance parties that Disney World offers these days. I love a good old meet and greet, but I love seeing my little girl have fun even more. Be sure to check this out on your next trip.
