  • Disney Junior Play and Dance! replaced Disney Junior–Live on Stage! Previous shows in this theater included “Playhouse Disney—Live on Stage” which ran from its 2001 debut until 2011, when the Disney Channel changed the name of its children’s block from “Playhouse Disney” to “Disney Junior.” In addition, “Bear in the Big Blue House—Live on Stage,” ran from June 1999 to August 2001. The characters of Bear in the Big Blue House were thereafter incorporated into the first rendition of Playhouse Disney—Live on Stage.
  • This location is the former location  of the “Soundstage Restaurant,” a cafeteria-style eatery that operated from the park’s opening day, May 1, 1989, to November 14, 1998. Soundstage Restaurant incorporated sets from various movies during its run, including Big Business (1988), Beauty and the Beast (1991), and Aladdin (1992). The camels currently seen at the Magic Kingdom’s Magic Carpets of Aladdin attraction formerly sat outside the Soundstage Restaurant. A cocktail bar, “Catwalk Bar,” operated on the upper level of the Soundstage Restaurant and was accessible from both the Soundstage Restaurant and the Brown Derby. (The former Catwalk Bar is now the location of Disney’s Hollywood Studios’ Club 33.)
