Rock Your Summer Side Dance Party at Hollywood Studios

 Rock Your Summer Side Dance Party

Update:  It appears that this dance party will be merged into the Frozen Summer of Fun Live promotion and will begin at 5:30pm at the Sorcerer’s Hat.

Something that seemingly appeared out of nowhere is the new “Rock Your Summer Side” Disney character dance party.  It was announced on Friday and began the same day.  According to the press release the dance party will be offered in front of the Sorcerer Hat at Hollywood Studios until August 22nd.  The dance party runs from 6:00pm to 10:00pm daily.

The dance party features 30 minutes of live music by Mulch, Sweat and Shears followed by 30 minutes with a DJ and the Disney characters.  The characters first appeared at 6:30pm to an otherwise empty dance party area.  As soon as everyone saw the face below, the people in the area ran to meet the VIP characters.

Minnie Mouse

Minnie had some sort of dance line thing going on.  I’m not a dancer, so I couldn’t tell you which dance this was.Minnie Mouse Rock your summer side dance party at Hollywood Studios June 2014

Chip n Dale

The chipmunks are wearing their swim wear to the summer dance party.  I met them in these same costumes on Halloween at Blizzard Beach, but still a fun couple of guys.

My little girl had a blast dancing with all her favorite characters.  It was like 94 degrees outside in the blazing sun, so you might want to save this until 7:30pm or later in your touring to be a bit cooler out.  The characters may last up to 20 minutes in the heat, but we found some leaving a little early for a bit of water, which is fully understandable.Donald Duck Rock your summer side dance party at Hollywood Studios June 2014

The sun glistening over Mickey as the crowd presses around him.  Most people are confused when they see characters.  They think they need to poke an autograph book under their nose and form a straight line.  It always takes a few minutes for people to realize it’s a dance party, not a meet and greet.  People then try to pose their kid next to the character for a shot with them as the character dances in circles.Mickey Mouse Rock your summer side dance party at Hollywood Studios June 2014

Mickey seemed happy with the new Dance party.  He wanted me to tell you there are a variety of libations nearby, so you’d know you could touch your thirst while dancing your way to his bank.Mickey Mouse Rock your summer side dance party at Hollywood Studios June 2014

I think Goofy was trying to show her the “Crane move” from The Karate Kid.  That’s the good version with Ralph Machio and Mr. Miagi, not the clutzy newer version.

She loves characters and they love her.  She gets more big hugs than anyone I know.  She’s a bit of a superstar.

Chip and her having a great moment.  Do you see the whacky Jason in the background?  He was dancing his night away.  He’s such a great Cast Member.Chipmunks Rock your summer side dance party at Hollywood Studios June 2014

Here’s a shot of the stage.

They have a backdrop to pose in front of as well.  I should have turned on the flash before handing my camera over to Candace.  She does a great job as a photographer and I kinda blew it by not setting the camera correctly.Rock your summer side dance party at Hollywood Studios June 2014

My little girl really enjoyed her time dancing with the characters and she recommends that you check this out one evening “when the sun goes down.”
