Playhouse construction follows little blue alien’s lead

Wednesday, 4th February 2009 at 12:02

Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage!Construction of Playhouse Disney - Live on Stage has finally made some visible progress outside Walt Disney Television Studios, but, like most things in the world of TV, it's nothing we haven't seen before...,

Indeed, though it upsets DLRP Today to announce this, Walt Disney Studios Park won’t be welcoming an entrance to this new stage puppet show looking anything like the one in Florida.

Instead, the attraction’s entrance will be pretty much as we guessed in the last construction update way back in August — a modest little off-shoot from the Walt Disney Television Studios building looking just like Stitch Live! a few metres away.

Having the same display, with two sides, could also hint that the show will be presented in separate French and English performances. So far, nothing about the attraction’s language plans has been announced or even rumoured, but it is expected Playhouse Disney will run more alike Animagique than Stitch Live!, with only 5 shows per day.

Finally, the attraction has followed Stitch Live! again right onto the latest park map. Though, perhaps confusing for some guests, the two attractions’ logos and numbers are presented the wrong way round, with Playhouse Disney’s entrance apparently closer to Rendez-Vous des Stars Restaurant

Well, at least that elusive Number 8 on the Studios map has finally been found!
