History and Trivia

  • At this location: This location has actually had a zoning change since the park opened in 1989; it was originally a restaurant. The Soundstage Restaurant opened with the park, and the concept was that diners were in the middle of a movie soundstage. By the time the restaurant closed in November, 1998, it been the soundstage for Big Business, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin. Needless to say the idea that it was a real soundstage had slipped a bit since those last two wouldn't have had real soundstages.
  • On June 7, 1999, the space reopened as a stage show based on the Disney Channel's Bear in the Big Blue House. This show lasted about two years, closing in August 2001, and the current show was designed to add more from the Disney Channel lineup.
  • The Attraction's History: The show characters have been updated since it opened in 2001. Originally the show featured Bear in the Big Blue House, Rolie Polie Olie, Stanley, and The Book of Pooh as they tried to help Tutter get over his shyness.
  • The show previously featured Handy Manny and The Little Einsteins.
