“Summer’s here and the time is right for dancin’ in the street!”
In honor of the third anniversary of the opening of Cars Land (on June 15, 2012), I thought it was a good time to take a spin around the neighborhood – starting with this delightful show!
What is DJ’s Dance ‘n Drive?
This approximately 10-minute long show starts with the arrival of the automobile DJ from CARS. He’s quickly joined by some enthusiastic dancers who help get this party started!
There are moments for the young ones in the crowd to step forward and participate, as well as some slightly more complex choreography for the “big kids” to attempt from the sidelines. And all the while, DJ plays a great mix of upbeat pop music from classic to contemporary!
Who are the performers?
The hosts of this party are a group of waitresses (or I should more appropriately say: carhops!) from Flo’s V8 Café, along with some other mechanic helpers and of course the ultimate party car himself – DJ!
When and where can I find it?
The show is performed daily in the afternoon and early evening at the crossroads of Cars Land in Disney California Adventure near Flo’s V8 Café. Check your Entertainment Times Guide for the schedule.
Why spotlight it?
This super fun little show is an overlooked gem of park entertainment. I always enjoy stopping to watch it – and yes, dancing along to the likes of “Car Wash” and other upbeat car and dance-themed songs!
The performers are great about getting everyone clapping along in the crowd or attempting the small bits of choreography created for each piece of music. The show is also a nice influx of “people energy” in a CARS-driven area.
And it really is fun for the whole family!
