Dancing Stage featuring Disney's Rave (ダンシングステージフィーチャリングディズニーズレイブ?, Danshingu Sutēji fīcharingu Dizunīzu Reibu) is a music video game released in Japan in arcades on November 30, 2000. On the same day, it was also released for the PlayStation, but under the name Dance Dance Revolution Disney's Rave (ダンスダンスレボリューションディズニーズレイブ?, Dansu Dansu Reboryūshon Dizunīzu Reibu). It was later released in September 2001 North America as Dance Dance Revolution Disney Mix and in Europe and Australia as Dancing Stage Disney Mix. It is based on Konami's popular Dance Dance Revolution series with animated Disney characters and electronic dance music remixes of past Disney songs. They also include a few non-Disney songs that were popular at the time of the game's release. It is considered to be one of the rarest DDR game released in arcades.

Gameplay[edit]

Gameplay is typical to other 4th Mix generation DDR games. The game also features Dance Magic mode, an item battle mode using a tug of war style lifebar, where combos increase a gauge which sends modifiers to the other player. The mode was not seen on any future DDR game until it was revived as Battle mode on SuperNOVA.

Releases[edit]

Arcade[edit]

The arcade release of Disney's Rave was historically available at a few Walt Disney Parks and Resorts locations, including Disneyland in Anaheim, California (at Innoventions)[2] and Walt Disney World in Lake Buena Vista, Florida (at Innoventions West and Tomorrowland)[3] The parks also carried other dance games which would eventually replace Disney's Rave, and conversely, Disney's Rave is also available at non-Disney locations.

Console[edit]

The PlayStation version was the only version officially released outside Japan. The non-Japanese versions had slightly different song lists and included an unlockable "Maniac" difficulty level that could be reached once "Basic" and "Trick" difficulties were completed for each song. A Game Boy version of the game was also released in Japan.

Plug and play[edit]

The plug-in-play game was originally sold exclusively at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts,[citation needed] where the arcade version was also imported for play in the United States. The plug-in-play version, however, only includes one soft dance pad and only supports one player. The song list is also the shortest in the series, limited to nine songs.

Music[edit]

The Disney games feature a total of 31 songs. The Japan-exclusive songs are licensed covers of non-Disney music.
