Disney has today announced that “Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party” will debut in the Magic Kingdom on January 18 2019.

The daytime celebration will replace the existing "Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It Street-Party.

In the new “Move It! Shake It! MousekeDance It! Street Party,” Mickey and Minnie Mouse will invite guests to dance with Mickey, Minnie and their pals in front of Cinderella Castle. Shake it along with live singers belting out new arrangements of classic “Mickey Mouse Club” songs.

Joining Mickey and Minnie in all the fun will be a bevy of beloved Disney characters, including Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Max, Chip ’n Dale and others.

All of the Main Street, U.S.A. residents are eager to be part of this special Surprise Celebration. From Jan. 18 to Sept. 30, the Dapper Dans, the Casey’s Corner piano player and others will honor Mickey and Minnie with special musical moments throughout the day. And during the celebration, guests will be delighted to find other surprise, limited-time magical experiences popping up all around Magic Kingdom.

Current plans call for the existing Move It! Shake It! Dance and Play It! show to have its final run on December 1 2018.

As of right now the 5:45 performance is slightly at dusk to where you can notice the hub lights. Moving into the spring and summer I hope they adjust the last performance to later in the evening. The hub lights definitely seem to play a bigger role in this version of MiSi than in the past. I bet they would look cool when it’s actually dark.

Oh cool, thanks. We used to have collection of Disney shorts that featured Clarice, she was a favorite, and this collection was on the old RCA Select-a-vision Discs that they "advertised" in the "RCA Home of Future Living" which was the original exit of Space Mountain

Chip, Dale and Pluto all had Official Mickey 90th costume overlays. I wonder why they didn’t use them. Those top hats and leis are strange looking on the majority of the characters. They could at least given the extra 5 characters updated outfits.

Well that’s the intent with winter wear, it’s so it basically looks like the same costume but just an extension or additional layers for warmth.

The 5:45 showing had alternative costumes that they use when it's cold, they still look almost the same.

Here are some shots I took today. I like that the singers are live but.... Maybe the DJ was a better concept? What happens now is the Mickey float now becomes more of a stage show with two singers, Minnie and Mickey. It's not enough to stand on its own. Meanwhile the normal format where you interact and dance with the characters is still happening at the other four floats. Feels kind of like two events happening at the same time sync to thevsame music. I don't hate it, I like it in fact but still not sure if the dual formats is right for this kind of show. On the Pros side it's nice to have some rare and all 100% classic characters. The MM club throw backs on the backs of the male costumes is a nice touch. 342253342252342251342250342248

It isn't as bad as I thought it was going to be. Still, like @mickeyfan5534 said, the male dancer costumers are rough... I definitely prefer "Party Up!" to "It's a Good, Good Time," but I'll give this a shot next time I'm in MK.

The lighting for this version actually looks great at night. Definitely try to check out the last show currently, even the hub fountain lights are programmed to go with the show. But unfortunately they mainly run it during the day but they seem to be running the lighting all shows currently.

DisoneJan 20, 2019

There's been an occasion where it has run in the early evening. It's really not one of those things that's better at night.

TTA94Jan 19, 2019

Just curious do they plan on running this at night? They had the hub light towers turned on. Maybe they did for the previous version as well I can’t remember?

TTA94Jan 19, 2019

I know.

MiSi is a street party not a parade

It's a huge step up from Dance and Play It and even Celebrate It. The live singers add a lot. The character choice is strong, the character costumes on the floats look very nice (the ones on the street not so much but it isn't a Move It, Shake It... show without characters in Party City hats on the streets). The female dancers' costumes are a major upgrade. Can't say the same for the men. The retro soundtrack is very good and I hope I never have to see a 300 pound tourist wearing leggings shake her tail feather ever again.

I hope WDWs entertainment team, current ones anyway and especially the ones who created MiSi, have No say what so ever with MKs next nighttime parade or really anything to do with the 50th. SpectroMagics creative team should be in charge or, the very likely choice Steve Davison, Who I imagine will be largely involved in WDW entertainment in 2020 and 2021.
