Check Out Video of 8-Year-Old Dancing Princess Tiana Fan at Walt Disney World

Sydney Russell is an 8 year old who wowed a crowd of guests at Magic Kingdom Park within Walt Disney World when she started her own dance number in her Princess Tiana costume while the Main Street Philharmonic Band performed in the background. The video of her dance has gone viral with guests around the world getting in on her excitement. Disney invited Sydney and her family back to the park and learned more about her fun performance.

Here is the video below:

Per Disney Parks Blog, “Sydney was originally celebrating her birthday at Walt Disney World Resort and visited Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs for a surprise makeover before visiting Magic Kingdom Park.   When she started dancing to music from the park’s Main Street Philharmonic Band, a Disney cast member offered his arm and led her to the band – and the magic began!”

“I made up that dance right off the top of my head,” Sydney says. “I was just in my world and I was just living my moment.  And when the moment was over, I was just like – did that just happen?” 

Sydney’s mother, Tiffany McKinnon Russell, calls the Disney cast member who led Sydney to the band the real star.  She says the family is still amazed the video became so popular with more than one million online views. “We’re so glad Sydney could touch so many people and everyone can share in her joy.” 

Sydney and her family are scheduled to appear on the ABC talk show, “Strahan, Sara and Keke” on Wednesday at 1 PM EST / 12PM CST on ABC-TV!

About Christy Caby

I am a diehard Disney fanatic! I fell in love with all things Disney from an early age and that only increased once I first visited Walt Disney World! It led me to complete a yearlong Disney College Program working at merchandise locations within Disney’s Hollywood Studios (Disney-MGM Studios at that time) and I worked for Disney Parks & Resorts Technology in Project/Program Management. Now I get to write about Disney and help others plan their magical vacations! Disney holds a special place in the hearts of my entire family as my husband proposed there, we honeymooned there, took trips while pregnant with each of my boys and have visited with them many, many times from 8 weeks old through now. One of my favorite memories from each trip is always the look on my kids’ faces the first time they see the castle. I’d love to help you plan your magical vacation!
