More live entertainment, including shows at Hollywood Studios, are returning to Walt Disney World, just in time for The World’s Most Magical Celebration.

Disney says more than 65,000 Cast Members have returned back to work across Walt Disney World, and they are hiring hundreds more each week as they continue to open more resorts and guest locations.

Just in time for the resort’s 50th anniversary celebration, Disney will be bringing back more entertainment cast members, as beloved shows will be returning.

Some atmosphere entertainment resumed October 1st, including the ragtime piano player at Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A., Alberta Bound, Sergio, and the Taiko drummers at EPCOT, and more.

Next week at Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests visiting Asia can once again enjoy the music of Chakranadi, and Kora Tinga Tinga returns to the streets of Harambe in Africa. The Tam Tam Drummers will come back to Africa in early November.


November 7th marks the return of “Disney Movie Magic,” the cinematic nighttime experience at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

When this projection show resumes, it will feature a new sequence from Disney’s epic adventure, “Mulan.”

And be sure to mark your calendars for December 19th, when the cast and crew of “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” bring back all the comedy and thrills of that action-packed show.

Performers will also soon be entertaining guests along the waterfront at Disney’s Boardwalk Resort, and the inimitable Yeehaw Bob will have his audience in stitches of fun starting October 14 in the River Roost Lounge at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside.

Stay tuned for more entertainment and venue reopening news around the Walt Disney World Resort, as it happens.
