Donald’s Happy Holiday-O-Saurus Dance Party Coming to Walt Disney World

Credit: Disney Tips

A new holiday character dance party has been added to Disney’s Animal Kingdom line-up.  The party will be around from December 18th – December 31st.  It will all take place in Dinoland U.S.A. with characters coming out to dance to the holiday music with guests in the area.  Not a whole lot of information about the event has been shared yet, but if it is like the other dance parties at other parks there will be a DJ keeping the event lively while the characters move through the crowd.  Of course Donald Duck will be there and he will be accompanied by other characters.


We do know that during the dance party, Donald and Pluto will not be greeting guests at their usual locations.  This means that we can assume Pluto will be another character with him at the party.  Disney is very particular about the same character not being out in two different places at the same time in a single park, so they will take extra care to ensure the characters in the party aren’t doing meet and greets anywhere else.  Be sure to check the Times Guide for party times and for any meet and greets that you are looking for.

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
