Last night’s Disney Bop was the grand finale of what has been a highly successful week of Pre-RAG festivities. It was an exceptionally well-decorated and magically fun evening, with Venue 1 transformed into a Disney-lover’s paradise. The space was filled with balloons, everyone’s favorite Disney movie clips were played on two large screens, and there were even custom drinks such as the pink-and-blue “Aurora’s Dream,” “Snow White’s Poison,” and “The Lion’s Roar.” And of course, no Disney-themed event would be complete without a repertoire of Disney tunes!
Student Robb Elliott, dressed as the hunter from Tarzan, commented that he was thrilled with the variety of Disney songs being played mixed with some modern hits. The DJ, whose red-and-black attire suspiciously resembled Gaston of Beauty and the Beast, certainly seemed to be having fun playing songs such as “A Whole New World” and “You’ll Be in My Heart.”
Daisy and Todd, the fearless leaders of Disney Society, were thrilled to work with the Pre-RAG Week committee to organize the themed Bop. “We love Disney and jump at any chance to sing and dress up, so of course we wanted to help,” Daisy said. Based on the number of costumes, so does everybody else! There was the Hatter and Alice, Peter Pan, Nemo, Minnie Mouse, The Queen of Hearts, Maleficent, Buzz Lightyear, Snow White, Cinderella, Pocahontas…the list went on and on as colorful characters filled the space. There were even prizes for the best costumes, including edible treats and meals for two from Mitchell’s and Forgans.
The worldwide popularity of Disney songs and the good old fashioned fun of a sing-a-long meant that every tune was accompanied by an unapologetic and wholehearted chorus from everybody in the room, only adding to the atmosphere of carefree childhood fun with a grown-up twist —unlike Cinderella’s night at the ball, this party didn’t stop at midnight!
