The current version of the Move It! Shake It! Dance and Play It! Street Party is likely to have its final show later this year. 

Current plans call for the Magic Kingdom show to have its final run on December 1 2018, although it isn't yet clear if there will be another version to follow.

The original Move It! Shake It! debuted in 2009, and has undergone several revisions over the years. The most recent edition debuted in 2014.

Disney is yet to make a public announcement, so this information should be treated as speculation at this point.

I like the sock hop look the female dancers have. The male dancers got a step up from the obnoxious ones they had before but really just get rid of the stupid hats and give them pants and they'd be improved.

New costumes for MISI Mouse? Wonder if any new music was used?

5'10 is an exaggeration but the point still stands they will push the limits in terms of the integrity. And I disagree with the anecdotal experience, TDR characters are lightyears better than WDW and I have an AP and have been to WDW hundreds of times. It may not even be a knock on WDW, but more that TDR is just *that* good.

I guarantee you have never seen a 5’10” Donald, never has, never will be, that height is so far out of his height range. Also maybe you’ve had a poor experience or two but there are so many passionate CPs, part time, and full time performers who love their jobs and give amazing performances here at WDW.

They don't really look 'dead' to me, but then again, I also have seen some truly 'dead' performers while working at CEC

Tokyo's character performers really give extra life to the characters. It's why I love watching various characters interactions from Tokyo Disneyland and Sea. I love how Tokyo is one of the last Disney Parks that still allows the characters to have more fun with not only guests but with other characters. Which used to be common at WDW but still a thing at Disneyland (Mainly with the face characters and Mickey and friends) And while I might be compared Apples to Oranges. At least the WDW and Disneyland characters performers don't look bored or dead inside while performing like the Looney Tunes characters are at various stage shows in the Six Flags parks.

TDR has the best performers. I don't know if it's too hot or the casting choices but I dont even care about characters and even I felt like I was meeting Scrooge McDuck and not Colt the bored CP from Somewhere Community College. It also helped that Donald Duck wasnt 5'10 like the ones here.

It's sort of ludicrous that all of them are "rare" here in the swamps. So bizarre.

I agree. Although because Hollywood Studios has nothing for a parade besides Star Wars characters traipsing about, I'd have not minded the street party idea used there. Though I'll always prefer a full parade. I also would have accepted Move It Shake It More at MK had it been themed to Disney Junior and showcased those characters for the little ones. I'd have begrudged it less.

Some more Tokyo Character goodness. Starring The Br'ers (Gosh, I'd love to see this in WDW)

I think this is the tamest puppet in the ride. Now Joan Rivers puppet is the stuff of nightmares.

brb1006Dec 01, 2018

I don't want to see these characters again. I will seen them in my nightmares.

Any footage of the final performance yet?
