Imagination Movers at Disney MGM Studios

We just came back from a short 2-night trip to Disney MGM Studios, where we took advantage of the Playhouse Disney Concert Series (part of Disney's "Magical Beginnings" promotion for kids 5 and under). My 2 and 5 year old daughters wanted to see the Imagination Movers, so we took them to the 10 am show on September 22. These guys are awesome - better than the Wiggles! I have to say, the concert was really well run. Disney allowed all of the little ones to sit on the floor right near the stage. For parents who were afraid to leave the kids there alone, the cast members allowed us to sit on the floor right behind the children's area. This was ideal! The Imagination Movers were so friendly and sweet, and jumped down to greet the kids on many occasions. My 2 year old, who is very shy, even gave Scott a high-five! I hear that Disney is giving the Imagination Movers their own TV show on Playhouse Disney - and well deserved. Not only are these guys talented musically, but they just have a wonderful way with children. One more unexpected highlight of our trip - we stayed at the Disney Swan Hotel for the first time. What a great hotel! My 5 year old loved the pools and waterslide. The boat to MGM was as convenient as it gets. And we absolutely loved Kimono's Japanese restaurant. All in all, a great mini-trip. Now, we're gearing up for our next trip, to the Polynesian Resort in late October for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Stay Tuned!
