    What type of Disney Shows are appropriate for active children, prefer to not sit still too long?

    Hi Melissa, and welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel. My son is a super-active, can’t-sit-still wiggleworm, and he LOVES seeing shows at Walt Disney World.

    His number one favorite show at Walt Disney World is For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. This show features appearances by Frozen characters, super-magical effects and the hysterically funny Royal Historians of Arendelle. It’s hilarious for both kids and adults, and I cry happy tears every time as the whole theater sings along to Frozen’s greatest hits.

    Another can’t-miss is Fantasmic! Watch as Mickey’s dream turns into a nightmare, and be amazed as he uses the power of his imagination to defeat powerful villains. This show features a huge assortment of Walt Disney World characters and has dazzling effects and music. 

    We love the Move It! Shake It! Dance & Play It! Street Party, which will soon transform into a dance party celebrating Mickey Mouse’s birthday. I dare you and your little one to stand still while the music plays and your favorite characters invite you to get your groove on.

    It's fun to spontaneously join some of the street entertainment in the parks, too. From Harambe’s rhythmic Tam Tam Drummers to the spellbinding Jeweled Dragon Acrobats in Epcot’s China, it's a blast to join the party for a few minutes.

    Melissa, you will find a Walt Disney World entertainment offering to suit every age, taste, and attention span. Walking around the parks can be hot and tiring, and shows are a great opportunity for air conditioned relaxation and snacking. My antsy little one always takes advantage of the downtime during shows and comes out refreshed and ready for his next adventure. Plus, because it's Disney, your kiddo is welcome to jump up and groove along during many shows!

    Wishing you a magical vacation,
