We have just received word from one of the World Showcase entertainers that they will be returning to EPCOT after all entertainment ceased in March 2020 due to the pandemic.

Back in March of 2020 as Disney faced an uncertain future due to COVID-19, Disney cut most third-party entertainment contracts.

It seemed that one by one Disney entertainers were thanking fans for their loyalty, love and support of watching them perform for many years.

As Disney World celebrates its 50th anniversary in a few days we are learning that more entertainment is returning to the theme parks. Just a couple of days ago, it was announced that the Casey’s Corner Pianist will once again be entertaining guests.

It’s a good feeling knowing that more Cast Members and performers are returning “home” to make guests feel more of the parks magic and make those wonderful memories.
