Some offerings returned on Oct. 1 with the start of the resort’s 50th anniversary celebration. Rope-droppers at Magic Kingdom can now start their day with “Let the Magic Begin” welcome show on the Cinderella Castle Forecourt Stage, and the ragtime piano player is back at Casey’s Corner on Main Street, U.S.A.

At Epcot, World Showcase has welcomed back the Canadian rhythms of Alberta Bound, the humorous antics of Sergio in the Italy pavilion, and the Taiko drummers of Matsuriza in the Japan pavilion.

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

Performers will also soon return to the waterfront at Disney’s BoardWalk Resort, and Yehaa Bob will be back starting Oct. 14 in the River Roost Lounge at Disney’s Port Orleans Resort – Riverside.

Disney character interaction will also return in November, though in a more modified fashion. While the environment is not quite right for hugs and autographs to return just yet, guests will still be able to take photos with characters in a themed location. At Magic Kingdom, the Disney Princesses will return to Princess Fairytale Hall, and Mickey Mouse will hang out backstage at Town Square Theater in his new EARidescent look. At Disney’s Hollywood Studios, Minnie Mouse will return to Red Carpet Dreams and the stars of Disney Junior will be back in Animation Courtyard.

On Nov. 7, “Disney Movie Magic,” the nighttime spectacular celebration Disney live-action films, will also return to Disney’s Hollywood Studios. When the show resumes, it will feature a new sequence from the live-action reimagining of “Mulan.” In addition, on Dec. 19, the cast and crew of “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” will return with all the comedy and thrills fans enjoy.

Disney also teased in the announcement that more additions would be revealed soon, so be sure to stay tuned for updates!
