EPCOT welcomed back several World Showcase entertainment acts on October 1 as the park continues its reopening from the pandemic shutdown.


The returning acts include Matsuriza at the Japan pavilion, Alberta Bound at the Canada pavilion, and Sergio at the Italy pavilion.

Watch the video below for a look at Matsuriza performing today at the Japan pavilion. (4K YouTube version)

All three acts ended were halted in March 2020 as the impact of the pandemic began to be felt.

If he is even 10% of the Imagineer he thinks he is, it should be a renaissance at WDI…

I can’t wait for the “As part of our phased reopening…” DPB announcement in 2028. Or maybe it will come from @ThePresidentWDI @TheZachRiddley

Good to hear that the citizens are not a cut, at least as it stands right now.

Sometimes dots are hard to connect, I guess :) I just hope they remember soon: To keep us spending money, we need to have felt as if we had a good time while we where there!

I imagine they sold lots of drinks last night and probably made a hefty profit. You'd think they'd realize the connection.

The Citizens will return…eventually. The phased reopening from the four-month Covid closure will apparently last 14 years.

I jumped on the “Bob” stream for a few minutes last night- while I was on, the stream hit over 2000 viewers! The house was Rockin! Hey TWDC- Entertainment seems to me to be a worthwhile (and relatively inexpensive) investment to keep the park peeps pleased… (I know…. crazy thought for an entertainment company, right??) Might you guys re-consider your decision on the Citizens of Hollywood?

Some of you may have noticed from other threads that I'm pretty much on record of being highly in favor of proper COVID protocols, as supported by scientific data. But this is extremely dumb. Outdoor transmission is not a thing. Repeat after me. Outdoor. Transmission. Is. Not. A. Thing. All the scientific data supports that idea. I can see doing something like that in an enclosed lounge, but not outside at Epcot or Springs.

OK..........Have no clue how Bob knows this but Hoop De Doo should be in Jan????????

Yeah, that lasted long! The room was full energy since Bob walked in about 8:05!!! And the crowd started singing when Bob did Mickey Mouse March! Hopefully TDO knows how special this night is!

to me, the crazy/sad in all of this -- well, walk down main street in the afternoon and see all the folks waiting on 'the parade'
