California vs. Paris: Disney Junior - Live On Stage!

This month, as part of my mini-series of articles comparing Disney California Adventure to Walt Disney Studios Park in Paris, I will be looking at Disney Junior - Live on Stage!


Both of these replaced a thematically similar attraction called Playhouse Disney – Live on Stage! which in turn replaced an opening day feature. In California, this was the ABC Soap Opera Bistro (a restaurant themed to daytime TV shows such as General Hospital, with comically named meals such as "What a Ham Pizza" and "Hunky Rib-Eye Steak Sandwiches"); in Paris, the Disney Channel building which holds Disney Junior and Stitch Live! used to contain the Television Production Tour.


In Disney's Hollywood Studios, in Walt Disney World, prior to the current Disney Junior and the previous Playhouse Disney incarnations, the room held a show based on Bear in the Big Blue House. Prior to that, it held the Soundstage Restaurant, which –much like the Backlot Express in Walt Disney Studios Park- was often rethemed to promote current movies.


(To date, there have been no versions of the show in either of the Asian resorts).


The storyline of the Disney Junior attractions (and the Playhouse Disney attractions before them) is based around Mickey and his pals organizing a surprise party for Minnie's birthday, with the presenter -helped by Toodles from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse- telling stories to help Donald, Goofy and Daisy with their preparations.


The attractions were designed by Walt Disney Imagineering's Creative Entertainment division, with the intention that these stories could be changed easily.


Nonetheless, whilst these stories have been changed periodically in Walt Disney World and in Disney California Adventure, the tales have been the same since day one in the Paris park: Handy Manny trying to fix the bubble machine, the Little Einsteins racing through the sky, and Roo's kite getting stuck in a tree.

All versions feature one human presenter, with a gender-neutral name, and a cast of puppets. Other Cast Members are in the room however, to encourage guests to join in with the interactive elements, and to make sure everyone stays safe.

DVD
I was looking at DLDHistory one day and realizing the huge amount of content that we have that no other site has. The problem is trying to sort through all of it and put together a nice time line of the History of Disneyland. I also watched most of the Disneyland Historical DVD's available, official and unofficial. None of the DVD's seem to have the complete history of Disneyland including backstage photos and information about deaths and injuries, rare video clips etc.

This project has taken over 5 years to compile. We have created a full length Disneyland History DVD. 

THIRD RELEASE OF DISNEYLAND HISTORY DVD's:

The DVD series2014 version is a 17 disc set covering the full history of Disneyland. The discs are available as a box set. The DVD's contain all attraction openings, parades, deaths, injuries, trivia, backstage photos and lots more. To my knowledge no DVD has ever been created with this type of content.

We also offer a Current Attractions Version. This has the history of only the attractions currently operating at Disneyland. The Current Attractions Version is already in the 17 Disc Box Set, this version is for people that only want information about the current operating attractions.

Our Gold members receive a 50% discount.

Here is an idea to save a bit of money: Upgrade to GOLD then purchase the DVD Full Box Set. You will save $5.00 over the cost of buying the box set only. You will get FULL LIFETIME ACCESS to our site PLUS our 17 disc Disneyland History Box Set!

We offer previews for each disc on our YouTube Channel. You Tube Channel (series2014 previews coming soon)

We are shipping series2014 version copies NOW!



NOTE: We are putting the final touches on series2014 Family version DVD's they should start shipping late next month.. Full and Current Attractions Versions are available NOW!!. 

We no longer offer individual Chapters for purchase. A Box Set must be purchased.
