Good Vibrations March 23, 2017

Posted by nrhatch in Gratitude, Happiness, Music & Dance.

Another favorite aspect of our Disney trips has been stopping to enjoy street performances by musicians, acrobats, mimes, and jugglers.

We’ve enjoyed Matsuriza (Japanese Drummers), Sergio (Italian Mime), Alberta Bound Fiddlers in Canada, Matboukja Groove (Moroccan Musicians), Jeweled Dragon Acrobats in China, Viva Gaia Street Band & Carnivale on Discovery Island, A Frozen Sing-A-Long, The Festival of the Lion King, Beauty & The Beast ~ Live on Stage, African Acrobats at Harambe Market, PLUS . . .

Chakranadi (sitar and drums) in Asia:

Burudika (sax, drums, guitar, vocals, dancers) in Africa:

Quickstep Fiddlers (fiddle, mandolin, flute, drum) in the UK:

Harambe Parti (drums and other percussion instruments) at night:

And all of them were sending out Good Vibrations!

Music reminds me to flow with the rhythm of life and celebrate THIS moment with joyous abandon.

Aah . . . that’s better!

Such a festive vibe, Nancy. Thanks for sharing your beautiful photos.

Music has been a joyous spark in the parks ~ in live shows (like the Festival of the Lion King and Beauty & the Beast), during street performances, and also from well-placed speakers posted throughout the parks.

I enjoyed your post on Seekerville and tried to leave a comment, but it disappeared.

Maybe it’s being held for moderation?

Anyway, I got a kick out of your journal entries from NaNoWriMo. So funny in an “I’ve been there” sort of way.

Looks like a lot of fun Nancy! 💃🏻

Music = Joy for me!

Val Boyko - March 23, 2017

Me too Nancy 😊

So fun!

The music has been a highlight of the parks for me. Without it, I would already have tired of the Mickey mayhem. 😀

Kate Crimmins - March 24, 2017

Yes! Much as I love the parks, I tire of the crowds and the park itself. Now the other stuff….wow!

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Epcot is our favorite park because it is so spread out . . . lots of room to roam, and quiet nooks & crannies, even on crowded days.

Kate Crimmins - March 25, 2017

Yes, Magic Kingdom is like an hour overview before heading to Epcot.

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

Yesterday at the Magic Kingdom, we hunted for treasure with Jack Sparrow (A Pirate’s Adventure ~ Treasures of the Seven Seas) using treasure maps to find portals where we could fire cannons, etc. We also assisted Merlin in defeating villains (like Cruella) after signing up as Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom. Both were moderately amusing with LOTS of walking from portal to portal.

Now we are done with the Magic Kingdom until it’s decorated for the holidays in late November.

Such happy photos, Nancy. 🙂

Burudika is my favorite ~ those dancers exude HAPPY!

So glad you’re enjoying your trip! Music is always a nice addition to any trip.

nrhatch - March 25, 2017

The music has been wonderful ~ especially at Epcot and Animal Kingdom.

At the Magic Kingdom, our favorite music has been Elsa singing “Let It Go” during Mickey’s Royal Friendship Faire . . . complete with special effects! We also got a kick out of Jack Sparrow’s gang singing “A Pirate’s Life For Me” on Pirate’s of the Caribbean. I don’t remember much music at Hollywood Studios, outside of the Beauty and the Beast show and the movie preview.

Thanks for the link! Music rocks.

7. Debra - March 26, 2017

I’m pleased that you’re enjoying the experience so much, Nancy. The Parks pay attention to every one of our senses and music is a primary endorphin-booster! Delightful!

nrhatch - March 27, 2017

Wait! What!? Are you saying that Disney is playing around with my endorphins?! 😀
