    omg? I hadn't heard that Robert :( that's utter madness IMHO

    I know when we spoke to him he said he never knew if his contract would be renewed by disney right up until the last moment when they normally came back and said yes. So I guess in a way he'd not be too shocked.

    Wonder if that's it for entertainment at french quarter then :/

    Elliot was a great musician who performed at POFQ in the scat cat lounge. A different, kinda lower key option than the guy at POR.

    He was great with both kids and adults. His show included him using a ton of different instruments and he was always adding new and funky ones to his show. He'd play lots of well known songs and get people involved.

    Sometimes he'd be playing there and there would only be 3 or 4 people in the bar but somehow you couldn't just walk past. Pretty soon, all the seats would be full.

    I mean the area he played in wasn't the largest, it's only a small bar area but I thought he was exactly right for that place.

    Kind of makes you wonder why Disney let him go.

    you know, it's another crazy Disney decision. It just feels as if sometimes someone gets a bit of power and makes an arbitrary decision, nothing to do with guest satisfaction, but just "because they can".

    In my opinion, they never promoted Elliot's show whilst Piano Bob was mentioned everywhere. Those of us who saw him will miss him terribly. His show was one of those rare gifts at Disney, a free, genuinely great show without having to put up with the latest Disney character popping up.

    I remember the first time we stayed at FQ and wandered past Elliot's show, we had to pause and listen. Then we had to go sit down and before long we'd been there all evening and went back the next night. I wonder how much the bar take will suffer without Elliot!

    For anyone who's reading this and remembers seeing Elliot's show, please spend five minutes to explain to Disney why they should be ADDING things for the higher prices not taking things away. Feedback can be made to Disney at the following address wdw.guest.communications@disneyworld.com

    We'll miss you Elliot!
