Old IP, Quality Show
Date Of Last Visit: 6/22/16

It is a good, high quality theme park production. Sure the IP is outdated, but still a good show for the little ones.

Barney Show
Date Of Last Visit: August 2014

Any parent knows that it is hard to keep a toddler entertained so when I found out the show was still there we went to see it 3 times! Thank you for keeping Barney because my son loves it!

Keep him!
Date Of Last Visit: June 1998

Oh my gosh I cannot believe this show is still actually there. This show has fantastic memories for me. In 1998 (my first orlando trip when I was 6), I was the biggest Barney the dinosaur fan! All I wanted to do was meet him, when we found this show I was so excited! Not only did I get to see him, but he sang all of my favourite songs and even had leaves and snowflakes falling into the audience. I was mesmerized! Also, I'm not sure if they still have this, because obviously I am too grown up now to visit, but they had an indoor interactive playground too which was educational and fun. I remember lots of slides and some musical water. It was just so fun to a 6 year old girl.

Get rid of it!

Seriously who watches Barney anymore. There are so many more educational, fun, entertaining toddler shows. Barney is over and dated. Either put a different show there or knock it down and put a fun toddler/small children ride that they will love. In fact that entire area of the studios needs a major face lift. Love what you did with Seussville. Now something like that needs to be done in the Studios as well.

Great for preschoolers and toddlers
Date Of Last Visit: June 2013

This is an attraction that even the littlest ones can enjoy. It's best for preschooler and toddlers. My son started going when he was 2. We do not watch Barney on a regular basis but he has seen one or two episodes. Even those unfamiliar with Barney can still enjoy the show. There is a fun pre-show while you wait for the doors to open. Once inside you sit on park benches. During the show look for bubbles and other fun things to gently fall from the ceiling during the songs. Afterwards there is a play area for those who are 48 inches and shorter plus areas for those under 36 inches.

You will also have the opportunity to meet and take a photo with Barney after the show. The line is next to the train. The bathroom outside the attraction also has kid size toilets which are great for those who are potty training.
