It is End of Line for fans of ElecTRONica, the almost-nightly dance party at the Disneyland Resort as Disney has announced its replacement: Mad T Party. The new Disney California Adventure nighttime event will begin in summer 2012, inspired by Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” movie.
The Mad T Party will include a live band, a DJ, entertainment, games and lots of dancing. Familiar characters will be “re-imagined” to immerse guests into the environment in the park’s Hollywood Pictures Backlot. It will include unique food, drinks and merchandise. Guests will enter the party through the “rabbit hole.”
Artwork released by Disney shows a stage with characters, including a Mad Hatter and White Rabbit of sorts, as well as a House of Cards lounge with card-themed dancers:
It appears the stage will be set up in front of the Monsters, Inc. ride facade while the House of Cards will take over ElecTRONica’s outdoor End of Line club.
A closer look at artwork for the Mad T Party Band is offered by the Disney Auditions web site:
Auditions are currently scheduled for early February for musicians to play in the Mad T Party Band, including singers, guitarists, bassists, drummers, keyboardists. Audition details can be found on DisneyAuditions.com. Those who audition are asked to have a knowledge of popular rock and pop music, particularly songs from the following list:
I Gotta Feelin’ (Black Eyed Peas)
Sir Duke (Stevie Wonder)
Don’t Stop Believin’ (Journey)
Shout (The Isley Brothers)
Hot Hot Hot (Buster Poindexter)
We Will Rock You (Queen)
Please Don’t Stop The Music (Rhianna)
Locomotion (Little Eva)

This list is an indication of the type and variety of music that the live band will be playing during the parties.
ElecTRONica will give users their final trips into the Grid in April 2012 with the Mad T Party replacing it some time this summer.
