Dancing with the Stars Season 28, Week FIVE – Who’s Dancing What…and When??

Disney week. I can’t say it’s my favorite week. Too much production, too much BS.  But since this season has been remarkably low on all that stuff so far, perhaps I will enjoy it more.  We’ll see. Here’s what the press release says we can expect this week:

For the first time in the show’s history, the opening dance number will take place at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California, in a pre-recorded segment and will feature the cast on Main Street, U.S.A. and in front of Sleeping Beauty Castle, choreographed by the acclaimed Zach Woodlee (“Grease Live” and “Glee”). During the show, the celebrity contestants and their pros take over the Happiest Place on Earth as they seek inspiration for their dance numbers at Disney California Adventure Park and Disneyland Park in Anaheim, California. One lucky “Dancing with the Stars” couple will even get to travel to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge and take the controls of the Millennium Falcon. From thrill attractions to favorite Disney characters and more, this will be a “Disney Night” to remember.

Vying for America’s vote, each couple will dance to a variety of beloved Disney songs including “We’re All in This Together” from “High School Musical,” “Under the Sea” from “The Little Mermaid,” “A Spoonful of Sugar” from “Mary Poppins,” “Beauty and the Beast” from the live-action “Beauty and the Beast,” and “I Just Can’t Wait to Be King” from the live-action “The Lion King,” among others.

In addition, a special dance inspired by new song “Into the Unknown” from “Disney’s Frozen II” will be featured. And special looks from Disney+’s upcoming “High School Musical: The Musical: The Series” and live-action “Lady and the Tramp” will be shown.

Here’s who’s dancing which dances…ugh, the first contemporary and jazz of the season. At least Ally and Kate got them, along with Kel. This I can live with. 🙂 What do those whining about Hannah’s dances have to say about that, eh?? That argument no longer holds. Sorry not sorry. Foxtrot should suit her, though. James should do fantastic with the Paso. Conversely, Lindsay is going to have to work a REAL miracle this week. I love her, but I hope it doesn’t happen. Sailor should do well, but I worry about Lauren and Karamo with the Samba. Hopefully their partners get it together for them.

ETA: See below for what is apparently the full song list. Hmmm…Hannah was sitting on Aladdin’s rug with Alan, but she also was shown with a light saber.  And she said “someone” is going to be a princess. I would hope her and not Alan. 🙂  But the Aladdin song and the Beauty and the Beast song are both crap for a foxtrot.  Sailor met Cinderella, apparently, which would imply the Cinderella song.  Ally was also in the Beast’s library – and that song would work for contemporary. And they would so totally make Kate do Mary Poppins. And because the producers are who they are, I’m guessing Karamo gets the Lion King song.  My GUESSES are below.  

ETA2: Just saw Lauren’s tweet with mermaids in it. 🙂
