Disney Parade Move It! Shake It!

Move It Shake It Dance It Play It Dance PartyMove It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party is one of the most energetic parades I have ever seen. You can’t stop yourself from being part of the Disney parade. I love how Disney pulls us into things. They make your Disney vacation an experience from start to finish. The Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party Disney parade is a perfect example of that. You don’t have to be out in the middle of the dancing to be part of it, You can be on the sidewalk, like I was. We were heading to lunch and there it was, moving and shaking in front of Cinderella’s Castle. The big difference with this Disney parade, that other parades don’t have is there are no ropes to stop you from going out to the middle of it all!

Muppet Vision 3D Miss Piggy FountainOne of my favorite attractions in Walt Disney World is Muppet Vision 3D. My vacation is not complete without visiting the Muppets.This fun and whimsical 3D show is located in Hollywood Studios. Did you know that this area was built with a possible concept of a Muppet themed area for Hollywood Studios? Jim Henson and the Disney Company were going to be partners. This did not happen. Eventually Disney bought the rights to the Muppets.  I think Jim Henson’s legacy lives on in what Disney has done with the Muppets. I know that are of the theme park makes me feel happy.
