Once you’re settled at your table, with your food on its way, lively music starts and the DreamWorks Characters come out to greet their Guests. One at a time, a Character is introduced. To get everyone excited and energized, the Characters and servers come out dancing. During our DreamWorks Rise & Dine Character Dining experience, we got to meet Shrek, Princess Fiona and Puss in Boots.

Shrek came out first and danced to the song “Gangnam Style” before making his rounds table-to-table. Who knew this Ogre could bust a move like that?
