Just Dance Disney Party – Review

I’m a big fan of the Just Dance series, and even more so the latest incarnation as it lets me indulge in another one of my passions Disney!

Just Dance Disney Party as you would imagine is a more kid friendly version of the Just Dance series. It’s the same idea as Just Dance Kids which we previously reviewed, however this version is stacked to the rafters with your favourite Disney Hits.

We were sent a copy of the Nintendo Wii version to test by Ubisoft, and the boys also got some fab Rubies costumes of Buzz Lightyear and Woody from Toy Story to wear whilst dancing.

The Track Listing is great. All the Disney hits you would expect, and some unexpected gems you may have forgotten about.

  • “The AristoCats” ( “Ev’rybody Wants to Be a Cat”)
  • “Beauty and the Beast” (“Be Our Guest”)
  • “Bolt” (“I Thought I Lost You”)
  • “Cinderella” (“Bibbidi-Bobbidi–Boo”)
  • “Enchanted” (“That’s How You Know”)
  • “The Jungle Book” (“The Bare Necessities”)
  • “Lilo & Stitch” (“Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride”)
  • “The Little Mermaid” (“Under the Sea”)
  • “Mary Poppins” (“Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious”)
  • “Peter Pan” (“Following the Leader”)
  • “Tangled” (“Something That I Want”)
  • “Tangled” (“I’ve Got a Dream”)
  • The Muppets” (“The Muppet Show Theme”)
  • “Tinker Bell”, “Fly to Your Heart
  • “A.N.T. Farm” (“Calling All the Monsters”)
  • “Camp Rock” (“This Is Me”)
  • “Good Luck Charlie” (“Hang In There Baby”)
  • “Hannah Montana” (“Hoedown Throwdown”)
  • “High School Musical” (“We’re All In This Together”)
  • “Jessie” (“Jessie Theme Song”)
  • “Phineas and Ferb” (“S.I.M.P.” “Squirrels In My Pants”)
  • “Shake It Up” (“Shake It Up”)
  • “Shake It Up” (“Twist My Hips”)
  • “Wizards of Waverly Place” (“Everything Is Not As It Seems”)
  • “It’s a Small World”

We were all very familiar with most of the songs, which always helps with these games. Although some of the tracks from the Disney Channel shows like A.N.T Farm, Shake it Up and Jessie I didn’t know. They have just started enjoying ‘Kickin’ it’ on the Disney Channel, so I suppose I will get to know these soon.

I was particularly pleased to find the High School Musical song on there, as I haven’t managed to convince my son to watch it with me yet. However after really enjoying this song he’s agreed to sit down and watch it this weekend. Result!

The game itself is really fun, and certainly had me and Thomas out of puff whilst playing. After a few dances I was knackered. A great fun way to get the kids to do some sneaky exercise and burn some energy.

The dance moves are easy to follow for even the youngest of gamers. The children onscreen dance along with the song and show you all the moves, along with graphics on the screen showing you as well. Thomas and I especially enjoyed the duet songs, where 2 players had different moves and ended up making a little routine. You can do these songs if your only one player too, but having someone to dance with was such a laugh. We kept bumping into each other and were constantly in giggles.

Jacob who’s a bit younger can get quite shy and took a little while to get into it, and was quite happy to watch us two messing around for a few songs. Once he’d psyched himself up, he was fine and did really well. He loved dancing along in his Buzz Lighyear costume, even though we were dancing to Phineas and Ferb.

Talking of Phineas and Ferb they could fill a whole game of their own songs, so maybe that’s the next thing Ubisoft could get onto – Just Dance Phineas and Ferb Party.

Not sure why the boys are so serious in this video. I think it’s because they knew I was filming and didn’t want to mess up :)

Just Dance Disney Party is a great way to get the kids moving around and active, however it also helps them to calm down and concentrate on following the instructions and directions onscreen. A really fun game that everyone will enjoy.
