Do you and your little ones love Disney Junior? Well, have we got great news for you!

This fall, there’s an all-new Disney Junior show coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. “Disney Junior Dance Party!” is a high-energy, live show experience that takes its inspiration from the most popular Disney Junior shows on TV, including “Mickey and the Roadster Racers,” “Doc McStuffins,” “The Lion Guard” and the newest hit series “Vampirina.”

The new “Disney Junior Dance Party!” is a musically infused, interactive concert, hosted by Finn Fiesta and a DJ – named Deejay, of course – who involve you in all the fun, including live appearances from some of your favorite characters, fun music from Disney Junior and much more.

Keep checking Disney Parks Blog for updates as we get closer to the opening of “Disney Junior Dance Party!” later this fall.


  • So how much later in the fall will this show be available? We plan on being at the park, September 9-14

    • Julie – The show won’t be available at that time, although you will have opportunities to interact with some favorite Disney Junior characters at character greeting locations outside the theater and during the Play ‘n’ Dine breakfast at Hollywood & Vine.

  • Shawn, in your response to Laure above you said “once the current version closes.” When will it close? We bought park hoppers just to be able to see the show (in July), so I’m worried that was a waste.

    • Julienne – You’ll still have a chance to catch the current show in July. The last performance of “Disney Junior – Live on Stage” will be on September 1.

  • So I just called Disney and this party did not come up on the automative search. So I got a live person on the phone and I was told that the party would be at Magic Kingdom, but on here it says Hollywood Studios, very confusing. I feel like the team was not well educated about this event, which made me wonder if this was legit. I just want to make sure this is legit before I spend $178 on two tickets to a party that doesn’t exist because it would break my daughter’s heart. And can the kids come up on stage and dance with the characters as stated on the FB post? And if they can, dose it cost extra?

  • Will Jake continue to be at the park or at Hollywood & Vine?? My son will be so sad if he does not get to meet his favorite pirate.

  • Hi Shawn, please tell me that Sofia the First will be included in this new show. My daughter loves Sofia the First (and fine, daddy is fond of her too), so it would be magical to continue seeing the pint-sized princess from Enchancia at DHS. If she won’t, please tell me she will be elsewhere at WDW (and DLR for that matter)!

    • Dustin – Although Sofia won’t be part of the new show, your daughter will still get to meet her in a special location outside the Disney Junior theater at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Sofia also participates in the Play ‘n Dine breakfast at Hollywood & Vine along with Jake, Doc McStuffins and Roadster Racer Goofy!

  • Will the new show immediately replace the old one? Or will it just be closed for a bit? We’re coming in early September and I know the new show would be something my son would love.

    • Laura – The two Disney Junior shows are quite different, so once the current version closes, it will take the team a little while to change out the set and rehearse. We expect the new “Disney Junior Dance Party!” to open later in the fall.

  • Will this replace Disney Junior Live on Stage or be in addition to it?

    • Anthony – Yes, ‘Disney Junior – Live on Stage’ will close in early September to make way for this all-new show.
