OK, so the video is also an obvious commercial for Disney World, but who cares?? The place is great. We used this video to get my 2 year old ready for our trip this fall. He is soooo excited and is now very familiar with the characters. I think it will also be a great way to relive the experience once we get home from Disney. Oh, by the way, the songs are great and with the words appearing at the bottom of the screen it's a great learning tool! Definately buy this video even if you are not planning a trip to Disney - a virtual trip can be just as good! My son especially loves the parts filmed at the water parks. Very entertaining - he will sit and watch the whole video (WOW!!!) Thanks Disney!

Instead buy the Disney Sing Along -- Disneyland Fun - It's a Small World. This one has better-loved songs and more characters. Beach Party, on the other hand, has more kids than characters -- when it's the "live" characters that my children love to watch.

I've nannied for a good 14 years now (still doing it and loving every bit of it) and I must say, this and the rest of the 'Character's in costumes', with the children singing and dancing, are absolutely the best! I've bought these videos for children I've nannied for, my little cousins, friends of the family children, etc. and now my Goddaughter; and she is just fascinated by all four that I have for her. When she comes to my house she starts screaming with happiness yelling for Mickey and doesn't stop dancing and clapping until it's over. Now that she's about to be 2 yrs old in less than 2 weeks, she knows which songs go with which video. She loves this video especially because it has `Pearly Shells' (she dances along with the Hula girls), loves "The Hukilau Song", we sing that one nonstop, and she parties along with the kids in the video as if she's there with them. It's just too cute to watch her and also enjoyable for us adults as well. Even Grammy is grooving along with my munchkin to the songs! Another MUST HAVE! But they can be very hard to find. Have fun! Dance! Sing! And `shake shake' like Mia to `Beach Party At Walt Disney World'!

This video is so much fun! The kids I baby-sit for (ages 2, 4, and 6) love it, and I actually love it, too. Makes me want to go back to Disney World. It features real children singing a bunch of familiar songs in settings throughout Disney World. You'll see the kids snorkeling, playing at Blizzard Beach, pretending to surf, and singing about pirates' treasure aboard the ship from Peter Pan (Peter, Captain Hook, and all the gang are there, too!) Ariel from The Little Mermaid even makes an appearance. Several of the songs will already be somewhat familiar to kids, but in case they aren't, the words are at the bottom of the screen (assuming the kids can read.) What's also cool is that two of the kids in the video are actresses Mika Boorem ("The Patriot", "Mighty Joe Young") and Caitlin Wachs ("The Profiler", "My Dog Skip"), so that's cool. After a few (or 50) viewings, you'll have all the songs stuck in your head, but that's OK, because they entertain kids and help them learn to love music.

My girls like this video a lot, but not as much as the Disneyland Fun - It's a Small World sing along video. The songs are more of the original songs of Disney, whereas this Beach Party video has lots of "covers," if you can even call them that. One interseting thing is the young actress Kaitlyn who is in the video. She looked VERY familiar to me, and since the video was made in the mid 90s, I had to see who she'd grown up to be and why she looked so familiar! Turns out Kaitlyn in the video is Kaitlyn Wachs (pronounced Wax) who is a 16-year-old actress who is currently in the tv show Commander in Chief. She also played young Vivi-ann in the Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood! Great young actress, and a fun way to see her in her earlier years! You'll crack up.

This is definately an excellent video for kids of all ages. My parents got this for me when I was a little kid and today at the age 17 I still enjoy watching it with my baby sister! And no, it's not because I don't have a life, it's because it's a great video that never gets boring. The songs are great and very entertaining to the ear. This is a must buy for any parent of a child or anybody who loves great Disney music. Best of all, it takes place where all the children are at Walt Disney World, which brings back many good memories of when I was last there. Thanks, Disney!

My 2 year old daughter loves to watch this video. It keeps her entertained the whole time. She loves the interaction between the kids and tries to mimick their dance moves...so cute! All of the songs are easily remembered and I catch myself singing right along too!

This is a very nice video, especially for the kids. I seriously think kids would get a good amount of enjoyment out of this one. The songs are right around their level and most of the words appear on screen for them to sing along. Great for summertime. Scuba Mickey even appears in this, which is a nice touch. A very good video.

Our 22-month old is OBSESSED with this video. Like, if there was a Mickeyholics Anonymous she'd be going there. At first I thought it's because she hasn't watched TV until recently. But she doesn't care about any other film -- she just wants this one. ALL THE TIME. As soon as we get home, she says "Mockey?" once a second. Of course we don't let her watch it all the time, so quite a few conflicts arise there.

So on the one hand, this video is GREAT at doing what it's supposed to do: entertain children. If you want your child rooted in place so you're free to do other things, this video is great for that! Our 4-year old neighbor next door was also fixated by this video when she was visiting, so the target age range is pretty wide.

On the other hand, it can potentially drive parents crazy (we have all the songs from this BURNED into our brains) and turn children into crazed Mickeyholics! I am a huge Disney movies and resorts fan, but even I can't sit through this whole video and remain sane. I can watch little bits here and there. It's definitely targeted at kids under 10.

Oh, by the way, if you're a fan of Disney's "The Little Mermaid" like I am, you'll be interested to know that Jodi Benson, who provided the voice of Ariel for the movie, makes an appearance as Ariel for this video in the "Part of Your World" segment.

UPDATE, 1 month later... She has expanded her tastes to include Barney, Sesame Street and Dora. And she actually prefers them over this sometimes. So I guess the obsession was not long-lived, thankfully!

UPDATE - 7/2/10 - She finally got tired of watching this. I rented Sing Along Songs - Campout at Walt Disney World and she loves it just as much. She also really likes Sing Along Songs - Flik's Musical Adventure. She did not like Sing Along Songs - Disneyland Fun and neither did I (I wrote a review on it if you want to know why).
