Now appearing at Disney's Hollywood Studios: Luxo Jr.
Every 15-20 minutes, Luxo Jr., the dancing lamp from the Pixar movies, makes an appearance across the street from Toy Story Mania. Perched on a stage above the crowd, this cute little fellow dances to a variety of tunes for about two and a half minutes. The passing crowd comes to a standstill as this new design in outdoor entertainment performs his act.
Is Luxo Jr. worth seeing? Sure, especially if you're in the area or standing in the outdoor queue for Toy Story Mania. He's charming and unique. But I'm not sure I'd make a special trip to Pixar Place just to see him. But since everyone passes this way at least once during their visit, why not take a break while you're in this area and kill a few minutes until he makes an appearance?
Luxo Jr. is another fine example of the many details that make Disney parks so wonderful.
By the way, Luxo Jr. is much taller in person than he is in the movies. ;-)
I shot a video of his performance. The sound is “live” so there is a lot of background noise, but I think you can still make out the music.
