#MEET UP-SATURDAY, APRIL 21st, 8:00 pm @ CARNATION PLAZA GARDENS!!! Come join me for the Jump, Jive, Boogie Swing Party Featuring Stompy Jones! Dresse up if you would like as many will be dressing up this Sat!! All are welcome, whether you can swing dance or have never done it before. I am more then happy to teach those who would like to learn the basics. I'm just missing a guy partner to help me teach, so if you know of a good swing dancer, that's a guy, bring him!!! You don't need to worry about having a partner bc everyone dances with eachother!! They run 30 min sets, so in between sets is the perfect time to learn. I'm hoping you will all enjoy it enough to come back the following Sat, April 28th, for the final swing night. CPG will be closing on April 30th :( It should hopefully be a great turn out the last night of all those that have danced there over the years!! I will definitely be stopping by that night, for a final dance. I can't think of a better way to celebrate my bday at DL!! Please comment if you're interested in coming on the 21st!! Hope to see you all there!!

I will go and dance a couple songs, its been years since I have done it but it will be fun

ooohhhh so sad this is being taken out.  so many memories of my mommy and me hanging, waiting for my dad who was listening to the bands.  have they said what will go there instead??
- secretagentangel  4658.5 #28 2:22AM
This is leaving!?! What a huge bummer! I used to dance here when I was 19 and when having the premium pass was cheaper. Wish I could go once last time but I'm blocked. sigh Good memories! - PickyPicky  14.7 #8684 3:20AM
Just did some quick research and it will reopen in Winter 2013 as Fantasy Faire. During the day it will be a meet the Disney princesses type thing and at night it will continue to have live entertainment and music. Hope they carry on the swing dancing tradition when it returns. It would be great if they would switch it to Friday nights so more people with other levels of annual passes could go. But we shall see.... - PickyPicky  14.7 #8684 3:27AM
any ideas on what the fantasy faire thing back by IASW will become? Or will it be princess meet and greet as well? - KylaShea  632.7 #319 6:19AM
I heard rumors of beasts castle, but idk how true that is - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 10:43AM
This sounds fun! I owe my little guy a mommy/son date night and we will be in town. Count me in :-) - Jewelz  557.9 #363 6:28AM
Wish I wasn't blocked out on Saturdays:( I used to swing dance in college and have always wanted to go to this. - supertracy  471.9 #453 6:40AM
I plan to stop by!! I took a basic swing dancing class many years ago and I've always loved watching the Disneyland swing dancers. Sounds fun!! - Mimmy  1442.3 #118 8:12AM
I wish I could be there :( I'll be there in spirit - spaceranger916  376.5 #601 8:23AM
We're going to miss it, only be there Friday. - shodge12  313.8 #828 8:25AM
Oh no, Why are they closing CPG? Is it forever or just some kind of refurb? My hubby's parents used to dance there and listen to all the old bands. I am so sad about this, and hardly any pix from those days. They were such a cute couple and great dancers. Splash will be so upset. - DznyFan4ever  371.8 #612 8:31AM
It's always been such a dream of mine to dance there. But I'm always blocked out on Saturdays. Though I may make the exception this time and head over there. Though I cannot dance to save my life, I just GOTTA before they close! - brookeandthebeast  5.7 #16630 2:33PM

I'll be on the parade route that night!😊 a little tip... That's actually a great place to watch the fireworks from if you wanna stay there for fireworks and keep dancing after them! - CxD_CM  518.6 #401 12:09AM
Bump!!! Only one more sleep until tomorrow!!! I can't wait for this meet up!!!! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 1:13PM
I don't know what to wear. Any suggestions? - erINwonderlandCM  261.1 #1245 1:19PM
I would wear something you would be comfortable dancing in. Like a dress, skirt or pants. If you have any vintage looking outfits, wear that!! Unfortunately my vintage clothes are in storage, so I have to come up with something myself!! Make sure to wear comfortable shoes you can dance in. Id suggest some flats, converse, TOMS, or anything you might have. I'll be in my TOMS probably. Just come in something comfortable and ready to have a great time!! - caramiapoohluvsbb8  4088.5 #37 2:09PM
Is anyone else dressing up? Or will I be the only one? - ladylikesdisney  945.0 #197 4:36PM
I'm bringing a dress with me to change into. It's not a true "swing dress", but at least it's not jeans and a t-shirt. - LilSterner  5455.2 #20 11:15AM
I wish I could go. I'm flying out of town tomorrow morning for the weekend.
