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!
