I noticed that the Playhouse Disney concert series at the Studios this fall is only being held Thursday-Sunday this year. I had planned to do the Studios on Wed., so I guess I am going to have replan and change some ADRs. Yuck! I guess we will do AK on Wed and MGM on Thurs. I also noticed that the performers in the middle of series are TBA. Do you think that means they will be something like Mickey's Magic Show or similar rather than a "big-name" act? Sorry if this has already been posted. I couldn't find it.

They did just add Choo Choo Soul for the weekend of Sept. 20th. The next weekend is still up in the air though. We are debating going to one of the shows since we will be there both weekends.:banana: My DH is all for seeing Choo Choo Soul since he thinks the one chick is hot stuff!:lmao: I really was hoping for Dan Zanes because he's the only one I don't loathe but he is there at another time. They Might be Giants would have been great too, but I don't think they are afffiliated with Disney.:sad2:

It is for the entire length of the concert series. You can see the schedule on the Disney website. I orginally found it on mouseplanet.com though on their WDW update. We will be there 9/16 - 9/23. Choo Choo Soul? Yuck. My daughter will be 2 so I am not sure this will be that great of show for her. Should I change my ADRs for this? The problem is there is not much to do for her age group at the Studios, eventhough she is pretty fearless for a toddler. We were counting on this to be an extra activity that she would enjoy. I too wish it was Dan Zanes. Oh well. So much for advanced planning. :headache:

Me too, our DS day is on a Wednesday and I see they're only having the concerts Thur-Sun and no acts scheduled for our time frame yet :headache:
I will not be able to change our plans/ADR's though, but I may be able to do the concert on our departure day, if it's someone we think would be worth seeing! I guess we'll see what happens!

Oh I love Choo Choo Soul! :cool1: "Dance Birdy Dance" Whoop whoop!:banana: And if the train conductor looks like THAT train conductor...Momma will have some eye candy too!:lmao: :rotfl: I will have to take a look again. If you went on the Disney site to see that...I didn't notice anything not showing the times we are there but I am going to recheck too! And I am kinda excited about MGM with my two year old. I think my older kids will love it and my DD will like all the shows! It is Epcot that I think will be a waste of time for everyone.:confused3

Well I found it. We have Imagination Movers. Blah! Dorky! Is the Playhouse Disney in Concert the same as the Playhouse Disney show? They list Playhouse Disney Live and Playhouse Disney in Concert in which I found the list with Imagin. show listed. I am assuming that is two different shows.

I don't see Choo Choo Soul Listed anywhere though.....

They did just add Choo Choo Soul for the weekend of Sept. 20th.

Where did you read that? It has not been listed on Disney's website.


I am not sure that my very active toddler, who will be turning 2 then, will actually sit through a long show. So I am hesitant to rework our schedule and change ADRs unless it is going to be somebody really good. She has never seen Choo Choo Soul but that doesn't mean it wouldn't necessarily be fun for her. I have honestly only seen a snippet of her on TV once, so I shouldn't judge. We will be there Sept. 16-23. It is harder to rework the first two days (first day is really more of a half day) of our schedule, and it doesn't seem that the Playhouse Disney Live show would be different enough from the park's regular show to warrant screwing up our plans just to see it. Any thoughts?:confused:

Last year they had a small area for the kids to dance on. My DS was 17 mos at the time and had a blast with Dan Zanes.

I would love to go to choo choo soul or imagination movers. We got doodlebops. :scared1: Also, my last day if I move my schedule around we could go to the playhouse one.

I just read the following on MousePlanet. I am a bit excited that Choo Choo Soul will be there when we are. We saw Dan Zanes last year and loved it.

"…Two more weekends' worth of performances have been announced for the Playhouse Disney in Concert series during the Little Ones Travel Time promotion. Choo Choo Soul will perform the weekends of September 27-30 and October 4-7. That leaves September 20-23 as the only weekened still unscheduled."

We were there last year for the Johnny and the Sprites concert. There were maybe 30 people total in the theater for the show. It was great with no crowds, but I sort of felt bad for Johnny that the turnout was so light. This is a slow time of year for WDW, so my guess is they just want to make sure they have good crowds at each of the concerts.

we were there last year when Johnny was and opted not to go see him. His show had not yet started (or had just barely started) running on disney channel yet so no one knew who he was

after Johnny last year was Ralph's World... again his videos had not yet started on the Disney channel so no one knew who he was... we did as we are fans...

I would love some confirmation on Choo choo soul... my almost 4 year old loves them... as does DH cause apparently that girl who sings it is "hot"

I would love Ralph's World again or They Might be Giants!

We were excited about Johnny and the Sprites. The show had been all over the Disney Channel for several months before we were there (couple minutes between shows). The family we were there with was also excited to see the show as they had seen a lot of Johnny and the Sprites, particularly on weekend mornings.

We will be there while the Imaination Movers are there. We will go, but I wish I was there during Choo Choo Soul (she definitely is hot) or TMBG... I was a big fan of them back in my high school and college days... now that they have transitioned to kids songs, it works out perfectly!

Ralph's World is like Dan Zanes or Imagination Movers...he's a kid-song performer. You've probably heard this in the background between the main shows: "Clap your hands, clap your hands, clap your hands...stamp your feet, stamp your feet, stamp your feet...jump jump...jump a little higher...run run...run a little faster...dance dance ... dance arounnnnd." (great, just what I need running in my head as I try to grade papers and exams)

They Might Be Giants has a few kid songs that they've turned out that get some play inbetween shows on Disney. They sing the theme to Higglytown Heroes. TMBG's Here Come the ABC's is an awesome kiddie album. I love the song Q-U.

My little guy loves Choo Choo Soul...whenever it comes on he says the intro with the tv..."It's Choo Choo Soul, With Gennaivieve" and my guy adds "She's Hot" to the intro. Thanks for teaching him that one, grandpa. :rolleyes:

We saw the Playhouse Disney show a couple weeks ago and let me just tell you - you will not miss out on anything if you don't see it. I videotaped almost the whole thing and when it was time for the Power Rangers meet & greet, my battery died :mad: !! I was sooooo mad (and so was my little guy!). I mean, if you're there and the show is playing then see it, but don't rearrange your plans just for that.

yep Ralph's Worls is a kids band but they play rock music... more complex beats and such than say the doodle boops... It is alot less sugar sweet... buncha guys in t shirts and jeans playing rock music with lyrics my kids can sing... it is music I enjoy too. They play small clubs when they typically come to town locally and the kids are encouraged to dance in the kiddy mosh pit and after the concerts we let them jump off the stage. Locally he has the kids come up (all of them!) to perform a number... its a good show. At disney last year it was a good show with the mosh pit and everything he couldnt invite kids up to sing with him but it was a good show

they might be giants was also a pretty popular band back in the late 1980's too they grew up had kids and now have a number of kids albums

Are you talking about the regular show at the Disney MGM Studios that plays every day? I assume since you said that you saw it last week that is what you mean. That is not the show we are talking about. We are discussing the Playhouse Disney Concert Series that runs in the fall. One of the previous posters posted the schedule from the Disney website. There are different famous kids music groups like Dan Zanes and the Doodlebops that play each week. This year they are not having the shows every day, but Thurs-Sun instead.

Ohhhh, ok. Yeah, I meant the regular one that there everyday. I didn't know anything about the concert series but the kids would probably love to see the Doodlebops.

I was a huge TMBG fan in college. My friends and I all laugh now that our kids are listening to the same bands we did when we were younger! TMBG also does the theme song for Mickey Mouse clubhouse! :thumbsup2

It must be something universal about the Choo Choo Soul girl...my DH also thinks she is quite hot. Her and Rachel Ray. Who would think he was even paying attention to Playhouse Disney or the Food Channel? Apparently he is, though!

We were there last year for the Imagination Movers and we LOVED them!! My dh is a drummer and loves all music, but thought that IM would be lame and corny. When we got inside, he was surprised to see real instruments. He thought it would be to a track.

Me and dh danced, sang, and had a GREAT time. They totally rocked! My then 5dd looked at us like we were so uncool. :cool1: .

If you're there when they are, I would see them. They do an awesome show. :rockband:

Well I just added a day onto my trip so that DD can see Johnny and the Sprites. She just loves them and we were scheduled to arrive on the last day of their show. That just wouldn't have worked because of the flight times so we are now going a day earlier. Trust me, anytime DH gives the go ahead to add on an extra day, I jump at the chance!!!

It figures that the one week they don't have scheduled it the week we will be there. When did they finalize the schedule last year? We will be there the Sun that Play House Disney Live in Concert is playing but it would really wreck our schedule to go then.

Am I the only one hoping that on the unscheduled weekend they'll have the Wiggles? I would really like to see them oh yeah and so would my kids :rotfl: . We'll be there the weekend afterwards for Choo Choo Soul too so I'm excited about that one.
