The lovely 8-year old famous from her adorable, impromptu dance in her magical Princess Tiana costume went viral. Walt Disney World invited Sydney and her family back to the park and learnt more about the incredible performance that inspired so many people. Check out the video from Disney Parks Blog below.
Sydney was celebrating her birthday at Walt Disney World Resort and was surprised with a Princess makeover at Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique at Disney Springs before visiting the “Most Magic Place on Earth”, the Magic Kingdom Park. Then she started to dance to the Main Street Philharmonic Band music when a Disney Cast Member offered his arm and led her to the band… then the waltzing began!
Sydney said she made the dance “right off the top of my head” and that she was in her own world “just living my moment” and then when the dance finished she asked herself, “did that just happen?”.
Tiffany McKinnon Russell, Sydney’s mother, said the Disney Cast Member who led Sydney to the band was the “real star”. She is astounded by the response from the video and how it has more than one million online views. Tiffany said that she’s so happy that “Sydney could touch so many people and everyone can share in jer joy”.
The family is due to appear on the ABC-TV talk show Strahan, Sara and Keke.” Be sure to tune-in tomorrow at 1 p.m. EDT / 12 p.m. Central and Pacific on ABC-TV. For now, don’t forget to watch the dancing Princess Tiana as she returns to the Magic Kingdom! For more Walt Disney World news, click here.
