Disneyland to Close Its Mad T Party November 30

November 17, 2014, 1:38 PM · Disney announced today that the Mad T Party at Disney California Adventure will close November 30.

Mad T Party

Don't expect Disney to drop the nighttime dance party concept, though. Both the Mad T Party and its predecessor ElecTRONica proved to be popular with a free-spending young adult crowd who bought a lot of adult beverages while listening to DJs... in this case wearing glowing white ears.

White Rabbit DJ

Disney's hinted at a replacement, which will likely be more a change in theme and style than concept. Which Disney franchise theme do you want to see California Adventure employ here: Big Hero 6? Tomorrowland? Maleficent? Or the ubiquitous Frozen? (With daiquiris, margaritas, and other frozen drinks, of course!) I kid... I hope.

November 17, 2014 at 3:13 PM · Mad T Party and ElecTRONica seem to be abstract concepts. They don't involve an intentional Disney IP. To do Big Hero 6 or Frozen as nightime parties doesn't seem to fit how young crowds party. The kids will make a mockery of "doing the Elsa" (raising arms with wrist snaps) or "the Olaf" (walking penguin-like with arms swinging side to side). Maybe it's time to take a break until summer for the debut of the next party concept.

November 17, 2014 at 6:06 PM · Could be something "Guardians of the Galaxy" related. Similar to what they had at this year's Villans Unleashed hard ticketed event at DHS this past October.
November 17, 2014 at 7:10 PM · Star Wars dance off is suitable.
November 17, 2014 at 8:08 PM · I would love to see Frozen. I'm going to be unpopular, but I love that movie so much. It's what got me into Disney again.

You're welcome

November 20, 2014 at 8:46 AM · It wouldn't surprise me if they did big hero six. When I saw the film there where more 20 year olds in the theater than families.
November 20, 2014 at 5:20 PM · I they put Iron Man in its place
November 21, 2014 at 4:13 PM · I would possibly expect something like Ratatouille with rats serving drinks
November 23, 2014 at 6:50 PM · Bring back ElecTronica and Flynn's!!! If not then a Wreck it Ralph theme with a real life Litwak's Family Fun Center.
