It’s a street party that’s a parade, a parade that’s a street party…it’s the Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party! at Magic Kingdom.
Overview: Although billed as a “street party,” Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! begins as a parade as it moves up Main Street, U.S.A. You’ll see some of your favorite Disney characters, stilt-walkers, performers and floats resembling giant gift-wrapped packages. When the procession forms a complete circle around the Central Plaza in front of Cinderella Castle, the “street party” begins. The emcee invites guests to join in the fun by singing and dancing with the performers on the street.
Parade Route & Details:
Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party runs several times daily at Magic Kingdom. (Check Undercover Tourist’s apps or the Times Guide for a current schedule.) Once the procession circles the Central Plaza, the “street party” lasts about 13 minutes.
Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party begins next to the Harmony Barbershop at the end of Main Street U.S.A. It moves up Main Street U.S.A. and circles the Central Plaza where it comes to a stop. It continues the circle and heads back down Main Street U.S.A. where it ends next to the Harmony Barbershop.
The afternoon performances of Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party are much more crowded than earlier in the day. It’s a common mistake to find a spot along Main Street U.S.A. when the procession begins, but you won’t be able to get to the Central Plaza in time to get a good spot for the “Street Party.”
About 15 minutes before Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party is scheduled to begin, save a spot around the Central Plaza in front of Cinderella Castle. When the procession comes to a stop, you’ll be able to easily join the interactive aspect of this fun parade.
Frog Family Rating: A close second to Main Street Electrical Parade, this one is at the top of our list! The soundtrack for Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party is one we never mind getting stuck in our heads. Tad and Lily absolutely love joining the conga lines with the characters and performers.
