Wii Disney Just Dance – What Does Dad Think?

We got the Disney Just Dance Wii game this Christmas.   I will say that the game is a lot more fun than I thought it was going to be.

As a Dad of 4, I thought this game was going to be a great way to keep the kids busy and active while they were stuck inside the house this winter.  After watching just a couple rounds, I found myself up and looking for the spare Wii remote.

I never knew just how hard it was to keep moving to the beat.  Song after song, I think I’ll get the hang of this right around April 🙂

All the songs inside the game (song listing below) were nice and clean, and even included some of the classics I used to hear when I was a kid.

Our Favorites Just Dances and Scoring?:

Shake it up, SIMP – Squirrels in my pants, This is me and Bear Necessities are our favorite grooving tunes.

Shake it UP:

Bear Necessities:

Like I said above, the dances took a little time for me to get the hang of.  At first, I didn’t know how the game was actually scoring anything I did.

If you look at the pics above, there are 4 little ‘guys’ at the top of the screen.  They tell you how you are doing.

This is the one I saw all the time at first:

When he makes an ‘uh-oh’ sound, that means you missed something.

After a while, when I learned to move on the beat to the music, I started seeing more of these guys:

When they are happy and you are moving on the beat, then give you a big smile and throw little stars out.   If you keep moving to the beat, you eventually get a little ‘flame’ growing at the end – which means you are on fire!

After about a day, I was able to keep up with the wife and kids.  I even won a couple rounds 🙂
