This week’s Limited Time Magic features Disney’s popular barbershop quartet, the Dapper Dans, singing a medley of hit boy band songs to conclude each of their routines. It’s taking place daily both at Walt Disney World and Disneyland, but while the song selections are the same, featuring ‘N Sync, One Direction, and the Backstreet Boys, their delivery is quite different.
A few years ago, Disneyland decided to reinvent the Dapper Dans by replacing their seasoned singers with “younger” and “more energetic” versions. So while the delightful older gentlemen that sing on Main Street USA at the Magic Kingdom in Florida are hilarious belting out tunes written for teenagers, the younger Dans in California offer a different vibe when performing a nearly identical act, but with more elaborate dancing and lengthier transitions.
Both variations on this Limited Time Magic offering are presented below. Compare and pick your favorite.

Anyone wanting to catch these routines in person had better hurry, as after March 3 they’ll be saying “bye bye bye” to make way for more Limited Time Magic.
