Cars Land DJ’s Dance and Drive in Disney’s California Adventure

DJ Dance n Drive at Disney's California Adventure at Disneyland

Everyone knows that the drive in diner was always where all the action was on Saturday night.  There was music playing, kids dancing and lots of fun.

It’s no different here at Flo’s Cafe located in Radiator Springs (also knows as Cars Land in Disney’s California Adventure).

As dusk approaches don’t be surprised if you begin to hear the rumbling of DJ, the Cars Land ace of base.  His music can be heard way before he’s on the scene.  People begin to realize that isn’t just background music they are hearing.

As this tricked out roadster cruises down Route 66 and comes into view everyone’s heads turn and they know they are in for something special.

DJ Comes On the Scene





Let the Party Begin

Once DJ has arrived just in front of Flo’s Cafe out of nowhere  waitresses and mechanics appear out of thin air.  These 1950’s clad women quickly begin working the crowd while DJ plays classic oldies out of his massive speakers.

The waitresses and mechanics lead the crowd in classic 1950’s dance moves like the twist, the mashed potato and even the monkey.
Even those trying to pretend they aren’t dancing along can be seen tapping their feet or mouthing along with the words.

The Kids Take Center Stage

After a tune or two the waitresses invite the kids to come up front.  They are then taught a couple of new steps and the music transitions from 1950’s bee bop tunes to Radio Disney favorites.

With the transition to more modern music the younger crowd really get into the party.  And as dusk finally settles in all of the kids can be seen jumping up as far as they can and throwing their hands in the air. Everyone one of them with a huge smile on their face.

Kids Dancing the Night Away

This little bit of magic is the beginning to a wonderful evening.

As DJ heads back down Route 66 his music fades and Radiator Springs returns to that sleepy little town.

But just for a few moments it was alive with excitement and guests of all ages were dancing and singing along with a tricked out neon laden car named DJ.

I hope you get a chance to experience this while at Disneyland.  It is an original for this park and is one of the reason I love Disney.
