Y’all ready for a hoedown?

You can kick up your heels this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Disney’s Kickin’ Country Weekend, held at Festival Arena at Disneyland park. Disney characters and performers will share the stage with award-winning country band Fort Worth West. The energetic band plays contemporary as well as classic country music good for toe-tappin’ and boot-stompin’ fun.

This is the second in a series of Family Fun Weekends, new this winter at the Disneyland Resort and running through March 6.

Last weekend, you were able to see dancers in colorful, folklorico costumes as part of Fiesta Disneyland! The entertainment also included Disney characters in their Fiesta attire.

This weekend, be on the lookout for the Kickin’ Country Street Party, a fun, musical celebration with Disney performers who invite guests to join a line-dancing party. The Kickin’ Country Street Party is scheduled five times a day, between noon and 4 p.m. You’re likely to see some Disney characters, too, such as Cowboy Mickey, Cowgirl Minnie and Pecos Goofy.

What country western song do you hope the band Fort Worth West will play?
