It depends. For instance, I was quite enamored of the music they played in Adventureland during MNSSHP in 2013. They picked music that actually kind of made sense. Welcome to the Jungle, Rock You Like a Hurricane, Black Magic Woman, etc.

The less dance parties the better. Completely kills the "theme" part of theme park to hear lousy pop songs blasting in the parks.

It's odd seeing a walking stick bug twice as tall as a raccoon.

True story :)

To be honest, character interactions mean a lot to quite a few grown ups too. Look to the left of this post for proof!

This makes me sad :( It was a highlight for our almost 4 year old on our trip in December. First the parade, now this. I know for most adults its not a big deal but for little kids, character interactions really make the trip.

Ha-ha, what? Yeah, never heard of it. Maybe some of those characters will be at the E:E Challenge tonight.

Good, they can take the dance party in Tomorrowland with it!

Yes, Slim is still attending the party. While exiting Dinosaur during my trip this past Earth Day, I noticed him outside Chester and Hester's. To be fair he was really the reason I stopped to watch.

Does Slim still do the dance party? That's the only positive thing about it.

I never knew anything about this. Guess I won't be missing it.

I'd expect to see those retracted.
