PLAYHOUSE DISNEY CHANGES

Living in Delaware her whole life, Jessica did not know much about Walt Disney World until she went at 13 years old. That initial trip, though, got her hooked on the magic. As the years went on, she did everything she could to learn more about Disney (including watching documentaries and reading books). She did not know many people that shared her passion until she discovered the wonders of the internet and the Disney community found on it. She has gotten involved with as many Disney projects as she can, including writing the weekly news articles for The Disney Driven Life and writing for her own blog, The True Disney Fan. Jessica has also taken on a position with Celebrations Magazine, working the social media aspects of the publication. Through all these platforms, Jessica strives to bring as much Disney magic as possible into her everyday life, and she works to share it with everyone she meets!


A beloved show of many preschoolers, Playhouse Disney, will soon be undergoing a change according to the Disney Parks Blog.  The stage in the Animation Courtyard area of Hollywood studios will be undergoing a marquee and name change to help promote the new Disney children’s channel, Disney Junior.

The new “Disney Junior- Live on Stage!” show will be very similar to the current Playhouse Disney show, including keeping a similar stage design and keeping some of the current scenes in the show like “Mickey Mouse Clubhouse,” “Handy Manny” and “Little Einsteins”.  The addition to the show will be adding a new scene based on a show airing in February on Disney Junior called “Jake and the Never Land Pirates” where a young boy and some other kid pirates have adventures around Never Land and learn about teamwork. There is concept art for the new backdrop on the Disney Parks Blog.  A similar show change will be happening to the Disney’s California Adventure version of the show as well.  The changes in both parks will be coming in March of 2011.
