A Fan-Favorite Entertainer Will Be BACK For Disney World’s 50th Anniversary!

We are just weeks away from SO much entertainment coming to Disney World for the 50th anniversary!

Cinderella Castle

As Disney Enchantment, Harmonious, KiteTails, and more get ready to debut, our schedule is already full of exciting shows to watch across the parks. But, another beloved piece of entertainment will be returning in time for the 50th anniversary celebrations too!

Casey’s Corner may be one of our favorite dining locations for the corn dog nuggets (😍), but the quick-service spot has also been a Magic Kingdom staple for over 25 years. Casey’s has been known for its “first pitch” in the morning to kick off the day, but the restaurant has also featured a pianist playing ragtime music over the years.

While the pianist has been missing since Disney World’s closures, you’ll be thrilled to know that Casey’s Corner will be bringing back its pianist for show-stopping numbers on October 1st!


You’ll be able to spot the pianist at 11:10AM, 11:55AM, and 12:45PM each day! Hours currently stop after November 6th, so we’ll keep you updated if that changes.

We can’t wait to hear that old fashioned music fill the air as we waltzed down Main Street again! We’ll be sure to give you a look at the Casey’s Corner pianist soon, too. In the meantime, stay tuned with All Ears for the latest Disney entertainment and news!

  1. I’ve been planning to be in Magic Kingdom for the 50th for over 5 years. October 1 also happens to be my birthday. Although I’m a few years older than the park. I’ve had a few opportunities to spend our “co-birthdays” together over the years. I’m hoping this year’s will be the best.

  2. Glad they are bringing back a pianist! Probably not Jim tho. My son and I had the honor of meeting him. He took time to talk to us and show my son his piano (an amateur pianist). Can’t wait to see your pictures and videos of the new player!
