I had the chance to take it slow on this past trip and enjoy some Christmas melodies performed by the Dapper Dans.

Getting into the Holiday Spirit

Disney Magic Kingdom Dapper Dans Christmas Attire and Show

Main Street Dapper Dans

  • The Dapper Dans is classic a cappella barbershop quartet that has been performing at the Magic Kingdom since it’s opening in 1971 (since 1959 at Disneyland)
  • The term Dapper Dan is a turn of the century term (fitting for Main Street) referring to a well dressed gentleman
  • They have a playlist of about 100 songs and since 1971 have been sung over 1 million times (Goodbye My Coney Island Baby alone has been sung over 50,000 times)
  • While the Dapper Dans perform as a quartet, there are typically 12 singers for each park
  • The Disney World Dapper Dans perform 9 sets a day, seven days a week
  • And during the holidays their set includes holiday favorites like ‘Jingle Bells’ and ‘White Christmas’
