Move It! Shake It! Dance and Play It! Street Party is a parade performed at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom. It debuted on October 24, 2014 and is an updated version of the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party which showcases new music, new characters, and new ways for guests to become part of the show. The parade is 35 minutes long and consists of floats as giant gift boxes. Guests can join in the party by taking photos and sharing them in their posts online which then appear on a giant screen on the floats.

Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party

As Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party, Five brightly colored floats adorned with your favorite characters and dozens of dancers enthusiastically sing and dance while encouraging those lining the street to get involved. When the procession reaches The Hub, it encircles this area and comes to a stop. It’s then that the merriment really begins. A DJ on the first float introduces the featured characters on the other four floats. In turn, each pops up from a gift-wrapped present and says a few words. These characters include Genie, Lumiere, Sebastian, and Mad Hatter.

When the introductions are over, a number of dancers and characters take to the street and party up a storm. The “dance party” takes between 10-15 minutes. When it’s done, the procession moves back down Main Street and disappears backstage. Although a good time can be had by watching the parade along Main Street, the real fun takes place at The Hub.

The characters you could dance with included Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald, Baloo, King Louie, Woody, Jessie, Mr. Incredible, Frozone, Chip and Dale.

As time past, Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, and Donald, have been relocated to the top of the gift box floats. They can be seen hosting the festivities and taking selfies on their phones. Screens on the float, that look like gift tags, showcase animated words to represent what the soundtrack is saying. An all new soundtrack has been recorded, complete with the song "Let's Party Up!", written just for the show. Nick Wilde and Judy Hopps ride the lead float. At the end of the show, the DJ will ask to choose from 3 songs to dance to before the floats head back down Main Street. Whichever song has the loudest cheers, will get chosen. The previous characters mentioned are all the same here, however Genie is now dancing with the guests, and Stitch has joined the celebration. Until 2017, Chip and Dale were on the lead float with Nick and Judy, while Mr. Incredible and Frozone were replaced by Phineas and Ferb.
