Disney’s Hollywood Studios has seen quite a few closures in the past months, and the trend is sure to continue into 2016 as Disney gets ready for the huge projects needed to create Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land. We will certainly see more construction walls, and probably more closures to join the Backlot Tour, The American Idol Experience, and the Magic of Disney Animation.

That said, I’m sure the smart folks at Disney know that they need to provide some incentive for people to visit. The Studios park now ranks as the fourth (out of four) in popularity at the Walt Disney World Resort.

We recently saw Disney open the Star Wars Launch Bay, a surprisingly fun walk through attraction with plenty of props, merchandise, and a few character meet and greet experiences for those who would like to hug a Wookie or meet Dart Vader.

On Friday, December 4, 2015 Disney opened another new experience at Hollywood Studios: Club Disney.

Disney Dance Party

Club Disney is located new Sunset Showcase building, nestled between the Rock n Roller coaster and the Hollywood Tower of Terror. Disney designed the Sunset Showcase building to be a flexible space so that it can accommodate different needs over time.

Club Disney is a dance club, where guests can enjoy some dance time with classic characters like Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Chip, Dale, Goofy, Donald Duck, and Daisy Duck.

Welcome to Club Disney - a dance party, Disney style.

A funky DJ spins the tunes, and the techno-Disney songs are accompanied by large projections on the top portions of the walls. It is a high energy event. However, for those folks who are a little pooped out, there is some limited seating available.

A DJ spins the tunes. I think he was inspired by the Mat Hatter, but I couldn't help but think he seemed a bit like Elton John.

For those who don’t want to get their dance groove moving, there are large drawing screens scattered around the edges of the space.

Are you glad to see a new dance party open in Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
