Disney has been testing some new entertainment options at Downtown Disney for the past few weeks. It seems the Celebrate Tonight show in Pleasure Island which featured DJs and stilt walkers is no longer running. There are some new entertainment options in the area.
During a trip to Pleasure Island last night, many different acts were taking turns entertaining the crowds as Disney managers looked on. Acts were set up in the spot where Celebrate Tonight performed, in front of the old BET Soundstage Club and in the steps in front of the old Adventurers Club. A Disney manager we talked to said they’re trying out some new options and that guests may see these acts in the future, or they may see different ones.
This group of guys were dancing and using buckets and cans as drums. They would perform about a half-hour then the classical music group Nova Era, who usually perform down by Fulton’s Crab House, took over for a 20-minute to half-hour set.
But the most popular performances were the “living statues”. The bronze-looking angel (top photo) and this red guitar player statue seemed to be a hit as guest after guest posed for pictures with them.
Here’s a video of the statues in “action”.
