Move it, Shake it!

If you've been to Walt Disney World in the past 2 years, you've probably seen and heard the popular parade/street party "Move it, Shake it, Celebrate it!" at the Magic Kingdom.  This "street party" heads down Main Street U.S.A. towards Cinderella Castle, circles the front area, then parks for the party.

We've caught this parade several times over our last 3 trips - it's hard not to!  They party 3-4 times a day and the song is so ridiculously catchy I caught myself singing it the other day at home.

Noah's never shown too much interest in parades, but he does enjoy seeing his favorite movie characters in person.  And, this show has them all - Woody and Buzz, Mickey and his pals, The Incredibles, and even the Genie and some other friends show up.  

After listening to some ride music on Live365 (dozens of Disney radio stations), I decided to look on You Tube for the ride, instead of just listening.  Then, I decided instead to look for this party.

I found several versions (not sure if this is the same one I saw!) and turned it on for Noah to see if he would recognize it.  Though I doubt he recognized any of it, he loved seeing Mickey and Minnie and danced to the music!  For several minutes, he stood watching, dancing, and pointing out all of his friends.  Brought a smile to both of our faces and made me look forward to watching the street parade perform in January!

Hey, get up, get loud

Start pumpin' up the party now

Hey, get up, get loud

Start pumpin' up the party now

And, this is definitely the only Miley Cyrus song I'll feel comfortable singing!!


  1. I LOVE this parade! I am not a huge parade fan but this one I watch. I actually bribed my kids for our trip next week...I told them that if they get in and participate I will get them a treat
