I am a huge Just Dance fan. And when I got the opportunity to get Just Dance Disney, I knew instantly that this game would be perfect for my niece!
G is 7 now, and she absolutely loves music and dancing. Also being 7 she’s still a big fan of Disney. Now, she won’t get this until Christmas—so this is sort of letting the cat out of the bag, but I’m very trusting of my friends and family that they won’t spill the beans!
It’s got some of the great classic Disney songs, like Be Our Guest (Beauty and the Beast), Bibbidi Bobbidi Boo (Cinderella), The Bare Necessities (The Jungle Book), and Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious (Mary Poppins). It’s also got music from The Muppet Show, Lilo & Stitch, The Little Mermaid, Aristocats, and even “It’s A Small World” from the theme parks. Now, showing my age, it’s also got a good handful of new music from Disney Channel favorites that I personally wasn’t familiar with: Jessie, A.N.T., Wizards of Waverly Place, High School Musical, and even Hannah Montana. Best song name is from Phineas And Ferb: S.I.M.P. (Squirrels In My Pants). My niece, however, knows all of these.
There are also different game modes, which I’m sure would be a lot of fun in a multiplayer setting. Things like Balloon Pop and Freeze & Shake. Mostly they both involve shaking the wiimote at specific times, and in the case of Freeze & Shake, holding perfectly still when it says to.
Now, there is also a parents screen. This has some options as well as game info such as play tracker, progress, and medals so you can see how you’re kid is doing (and how long—and when—they’ve been playing). Disney Family has even included tips for healthy, active kids.
You can get Just Dance: Disney Party at amazon for Wii or Xbox.
This game seems perfect for kids ages 5-8. The songs are fun. The moves aren’t too complicated, but do progress appropriately. And the songs are more on the shorter side, around 2 minutes each. I know G is going to love it.
