During a special media presentation at Downtown Disney’s AMC theater, Walt Disney World president Meg Crofton introduced the always-popular Dapper Dans as the “original boy band,” who then sang familiar boy band songs from the Backstreet Boys, One Direction, and N’Sync as a preview of the Limited Time Magic offerings for 2013 at Walt Disney World.
Lyrics like, “Everybody, rock your body right, Dapper Dans, alright!” could very well make Weird Al jealous.
UPDATE (2/22/13): The Dapper Dans will sing boy band songs at Walt Disney World and Disneyland from February 25 - March 3, 2013. Here’s a video of them in action, in a similar routine as the preview above:
Dapper Dans singing boy band songs is just one of at least 52 different surprise ways Disney will celebrate each week next year, with other special occasions including a romance week in honor of Valentine’s Day and a Villains dance party lasting until the “13th hour” (1 am) on Friday the 13th.
Disney will announce each week’s Limited Time Magic through a variety of channels, such as on Twitter, Facebook, in the parks, on the Disney Parks Blog, or sometimes simply leaving it to chance encounters.
