What I appreciate most about the Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party is the way it encourages guests to work off that Dole Whip. (Or, less aggressively, join in the festivities.)
The first time I saw the caravan coming down Main Street — originally called Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! — I figured it was another rather passive parade and staked out a spot on the curb. It wasn’t until observing the street dance at the Castle hub that I realized there was a very interactive second half to the show. Once the parade – made up of giant gift box floats carrying characters like Mickey, Donald, Baloo the Bear from Jungle Book, and the stars of Zootopia – reaches the hub, a full-on dance party breaks out. Stilt-walkers and characters leading conga lines pump up the energy level. Be sure to snap some pictures while you’re rocking out — if you share the photos on social media they might be chosen for display on the giant gift tag screens!
Nearing the end of the party, guests are asked to vote by cheers for the final song played. The floats then parade back down Main Street until the next dance party is scheduled to break out. In the meantime, go grab yourself that second Dole Whip.
