Departing from their current policy of closing an attraction every other week at Hollywood Studios, Disney has announced the addition of a new entertainment option being added to the Sunset Boulevard area of the park. Club Disney, another dance party experience, will open December 5 in the brand new Sunset Showcase Theater.
From the Disney Parks Blog:
“Club Disney, [will be] the hottest spot in town for kids and characters alike! You can join Mickey and the gang and take to the dance floor in this electric club environment, where a DJ Club Host spins the perfect playlist mix of your favorite Radio Disney Top 40 songs as the floor and walls come alive with vivid images from classic Disney animation.
Club Disney will also feature a cool seating area and snack station, where you can refuel and recharge – both yourself and your electronic devices – before heading out for more adventures in Disney’s Hollywood Studios.”
The Sunset Showcase Theater is located at the end of Sunset Boulevard next to the Rock “n” Roller Coaster entrance. The theater is built to accommodate a variety of different shows and is replacing the Premier Theater in Streets of America. Premier Theater has closed and is expected to be removed to make way for the upcoming Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land expansions.
While not exactly breaking new ground with this new dance party, it will be nice to have an indoor option where kids can let off some steam and parents can enjoy some air conditioning.
