The Shrek Rave returns to Orlando for a sequel

It's weirdly appropriate, when you think about it. What better place to partake in the disorienting cartoony wonderland (but with a beat!) that is the Shrek Rave than within a stone's throw of slightly-better-known, but-also-disorienting cartoony wonderland Disney World?

And since Universal Orlando recently shuttered their own Shrek 4D attraction, we guess we can say that this marks Shrek's triumphant return to Orlando theme parks.

The meme-come-to-life Shrek Rave last happened at the Beacham in downtown Orlando in December, but this time it's going down in Disney Springs in late March.

With its mission statement of "cool is dead," this touring operation is creating ever-bigger frenzies in cities around the country. The atmosphere is post-post-postmodern and freewheeling, with attendees  dressing like Shrek or Fiona or maybe any figure from animated pop-culture (and beyond).

The Shrek Rave happens at the House of Blues on Friday, March 24, at 9 p.m. Tickets are available now through Live Nation.
