    Re: Disney Dance Crew is really good. HD VID ZOOM This is how reality tv show looks

    I had to stop literally under a minute in. Thank you for sharing and posting this video, tis appreciated...but just like so many other things (HSM live shows, Celebrate, etc etc) if this is happening while I am at the parks I will be walking fast in the other direction to get out of the range of the crappiness as quick as possible. Just my opinion.

    It's heavily based on shows like America's Best Dance Crew and So you think you can Dance? At least that what they told us CMs when they gave us a preview of the show.

    The squeeky clean cast trying to talk "tough" street talk was almost laughable. I was also there on Friday, for the first and third shows. I thought it was ironic that all these years later in the park's history, they're trying to go back to "hip & edgy" again when it didn't work the first time around. The show is like night and day different than the "kinder and gentler" Drawn to the Magic. (And, it offers only one photo op now after the show instead of three, only with "hip Mickey". It wasn't my cup of tea but, the audiences when I watched it seemed to really like it. There was a grandma with the family next to me during the first show and she was really rocking out and getting into it! I'd like something more patterned after Dancing with the Stars. They could still do types of dancing with that that would have broader appeal. Or, I'd like to see them do something that showcases cultural dances. DCA is the perfect park for that. I loved the Bollywood dancers who performed during GlowFest and enjoyed Festival Latina and other cultural performances they've showcased in the park. I can do without Disney trying to be something it isn't.

    If only they did a Disney version of Dance off with the Star War Stars, that would be a lot better.

    Re: Disney Dance Crew is really good. HD VID ZOOM This is how reality tv show looks

    I'm confused.

    Is the park picking eight random guests to be the dancers?

    Or is this, seriously, a routine that has been professionally choreographed and practiced?

    Either way, yo, yo, Mickey, this is an embarrassment. Gansta Mickey is as retarded as Gansta Barney. The street ethos carries heavy anti-consumerism, anti-coporate, anti-mass-media elements. To see Disney try to shuck-and-jive in that world is pathetic. Truly pathetic.

    When friends tell me how mindless and soufully empty Disneyland has become, I'll be forced to picture this show and, sadly, agree with them.

    This is pathetic. Is it 2001 again? This reminds of something that would have opened with DCA in '01.

    You know, the star wars show is genuinely entertaining, while the Mickey one is not. In part, the problem is the moronic use of street speak. But in part, the dancers in the Star Wars routines are simply having a good time. Clearly, the Mickey numbers (and dialogue) have been scripted with an effort to manage the Disney brand and the image of Mickey, thereby sucking every drop of "fun" from the project. Yes, the Mickey show has all of its branding issues handled. But it's also as boring as dirt

    Also the dancer in the Boba suit (who I would guess is also in the Darth suit) is far better than ANY of the dancers in the California show.

    I wouldn't call that terrible at all. Is it the greatest thing they could have come up with? Or even half that? Absolutely not.

    But, on top of the amazing shows and entertainment Disney is known for, there's been "supporting" shows that always seem to have a certain amount of cheese to them. And it seems like this show knows it's cheesy.

    There were a few things I liked in it - I liked how some of the songs were used (Zip-a-dee do-dah, in particular), I liked that talking Mickey is getting some use, the little 'transformation" Mickey had at the beginning and I actually like the outfits - they're Mickey colors.

    I agree though, there were a few things that made my skin crawl - drink up me gangstas? Seriously, what? But from what I've been hearing the guests say while I'm at work, they're really liking it.

    I just wish a bit more brainstorming had gone on with this. A lot of wasted potential, I think.

    I agree that this show is quite sickening. Didn't Disney already realize that hip doesn't work in Disney Parks.

    I remember seeing the hip-hop kids where they got stuck in a cave and had a dance battle with a bear, now if only the Disney dance crew would do this, I would watch it!

    Do we really need two separated topics for this show? Not really.

    As for viewing it in person vs. watching it on youtube, you can see on youtube just how bad it its. It is possible to tell from video if the show is worth seeing in person, or not. Remember, last year when Tiana's Showboat Jubilee premiered, rave reviews came out from people viewing both online and in person. You could tell that that show was worth while seeing in person. On the other hand, Disney dance crew, (did it take inspiration from this years dancing mickey toy?):

    YouTube - Dancing Mickey - Shake Up the Holiday Season!

    And Dance Star Mickey even looks rather strange. I wouldn't recommend the show or the toy.
