Last week, we received a fun surprise in the mail – the Just Dance Disney Wii game! Previously, we had tried the ABBA version of Just Dance. We had so much fun with that one that we knew we just HAD to have the Disney version, since we’re all such huge Disney fans!
The game did not disappoint! We’ve been having so much fun playing it this week. The kids enjoy it, but it seems like I am the one who always says “hey, let’s dance!”
There are a few different modes of play that you can choose from.
First, you need to select your song. You can choose from a playlist, from the song list itself, or (if you’re feeling an overabundance of energy) just go for the non-stop shuffle! So far, we’ve always opted to choose our own song from the Songs heading.
There is a nice selection of songs from a wide variety of Disney movies and shows. There are oldies – like The Bare Necessities from Jungle Book, right on up to songs from current Disney Channel favorites, like Good Luck Charlie. We’ve tried most of them now and they’re all quite fun and a great work-out. I have to confess that I’m not a huge fan of exercise – but playing is a great way to “sneak” some exercise in!
One of my favorites to do is this one:
In addition to regular dance mode, there are also some other options like “bubble pop” and “freeze & shake” – both of these are the regular dances with extra challenges thrown in (for more fun and more points).
While Ian can beat us all at Disney Sing-It, so far I’ve been kicking his butt at Just Dance Disney – so, yes, I’m pretty excited about that!
This game would make an excellent Christmas gift for any Just Dance or Disney fan in your family! Up to 4 players can dance at the same time (but you do need some room to spread out). You can find Just Dance Disney at many stores and various online retailers – my favorite is Amazon.com (affiliate link).
