Club 626 Dance Party Article and Pictures by Florida Diva
Near the base of the Astro Orbiter in Tomorrowland there is a giant stage where a DJ belts out the newest and loudest top 40 songs. While you would think that this would attract a lot of attention on its own, what caught my eye was Goofy bustin’ moves with the crowd. As we cruised by on The People Mover, I knew where my next stop would be.
By the time we got down to where the party was, the DJ was showing everyone the moves to The Cha-Cha Slide and Goofy was gone, but Chip n’ Dale were there, along with Stitch himself!Soon they were leading everyone in a Conga line as the DJ returned to the stage to que up the next hit song.

But 626 has brought back some of that cherished interaction and put some fun back into hanging out with some of our favorite residents. So take a few minutes to let loose at the dance party and enjoy becoming part of the
