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.
Mickey appears in his cool looking blue jam shorts, white pineapple tshirt and blue Hawaiian shirt. I was told that he and a couple other characters appear in different costumes on different days.
Daisy and Donald moved into Animal Kingdom’s Discovery Island location across from Flame Tree BBQ this morning. Tigger and Pooh are now gone entirely from Animal Kingdom, but continue to meet in other locations. Be sure to check out my Master Character Location list for all the places you can meet them.
