After ongoing performances since 2003, the Disney Junior- Live on Stage show is closing in just a few weeks. The perennial favorite with the younger crowd featured characters from Jake and the Never Land Pirates, Sofia the First, Doc McStuffins, and Mickey Mouse Clubhouse. The show is slated to vacate its Hollywood Land location at Disney California Adventure® Park in early April.
But all is not lost, Dinsey Junior fans! On May 26, a brand new show takes its place: the Disney Junior Dance Party takes its place in Hollywood Land. While the exact location hasn’t been disclosed, this Mouse Master has a strong feeling it will remain in the same theater that housed the previous show.
While the new show will also feature popular characters from Sofia the First and Doc McStuffins, characters from two new shows join the mix: The Lion Guard and Mickey and the Roadster Racers.
While details on the new show are scant, the Disney Parks Blog promises an interactive concert format that will encourage audience participation. Music and characters from popular Disney Junior shows should be a huge hit with the younger crowd!
I can’t wait to see this new show! The description brings back memories of one of my all-time favorite Disney California Adventure Park hidden gems: Dancin’ With Disney, where kids (and adults) could interact and dance with an eclectic mix of Disney characters in the Stage 17 building.
I happen to already have a trip of my own scheduled for that weekend, so I’ll be giving a full review of not only this new show, but also the Guardians of the Galaxy- Mission: BREAKOUT! attraction, which opens that same weekend. It always amazes me that after dozens of trips to Disneyland Resort, I can still experience at least one new thing on every trip.
Stay tuned for a full report on the Disney Junior Dance Party!
