One of my favorite experiences at Walt Disney World Parks is the outdoor entertainment – better known as Streetmosphere - that seems to magically burst out of nowhere throughout the day! Streetmosphere at Walt Disney World is sure to delight guests of all ages.
Imagine strolling down Main Street U.S.A. in the Magic Kingdom and suddenly the Dapper Dans, a true Barbershop Quartet, are singing and tap dancing and performing true Vaudeville style! Or you come upon the Casey’s Corner Pianist engaging the crowds in song – go ahead and make a request!!
Keep your eyes open for the Citizens of Main Street attired in their 20th century finery – they are happy to pose with you and your family for a photo op!
As you make your way through Liberty Square, listen for the Town Crier announcing the Muppets Present – Great Moments in American History. Kermit, Miss Piggie, Fozzie, and Gonzo are sure to give you a chuckle as they take you through some of America’s greatest moments.
Streetmosphere in Epcot is both entertaining and thrilling! Watch for the JAMMitors in Future World East – a rhythmic clean-up crew known to use all sorts of props for their high energy drumming!
As you stroll through the World Showcase, be entertained by the Jeweled Dragon Acrobats of China.
In Mexico catch the performance of a live Mariachi Band and the Music of Mexico – perhaps you will be part of the performance!
Sergio, a master juggler and mime performs in Italy.
Watch Serveur Amusant, the acrobat of France, perform nail-biting acrobatics on a stack of chairs – how high can he go?
While in Hollywood Studios, keep your eyes open for the Citizens of Hollywood as you meander your way down Hollywood Boulevard. True to the Golden Age of Hollywood, this improve troupe will keep you in stitches – don’t be surprised to find yourself involved in their antics!
In Toy Story Land be entertained by the Toy Soldiers of the Green Army Drum Corps.
The Viva Gaia Street Band performs in Animal Kingdom on Discovery Island.
Become immersed in Pandora with the Pandora Drummers as they perform a traditional Na’vi Drum Ceremony – they need your help to locate the Banshee!
Winged Encounters – The Kingdom Takes Flight show performs multiple times daily in Discovery Island. Watch the dramatic flight of beautifully colored free-flying macaws as they make their way back to their home nest.
And keep your eyes peeled for Di-Vine! Is that vine really alive??
I personally like the spontaneous happenstance of coming upon these Streetmosphere experiences and many others not mentioned here. I feel it adds to my magical experience in the Disney Parks. However, many of these and other Streetmosphere performances are planned at multiple times throughout the day. Be sure to check your times guide for performance times.
So remember, as you are strolling through the parks or heading to your next attraction or FastPass+ reservation, keep your eyes open as you may encounter some unexpected & entertaining Streetmosphere!
