According to an online report, popular jazz musician Elliot Dyson, who regularly performs at the Port Orleans Scat Cats Club, has been laid off by Disney.
Some have speculated that Dyson's leaving may be due to a temporary closing of the Scat Cats Club during the refurbishment of the Port Orleans lobby. However, when we contacted the resort they informed us that the Scat Cats Club will remain open during the construction and only certain areas of the lobby will be "off limits" to guests.
One site has reported the Dyson told guests that his contract with Disney had been terminated, but also reported that resort management told them all entertainment was being suspended in the area due to the lobby refurbishment.
So, while the question of whether or not the Scat Cats Club is going to remain open during construction is somewhat unanswered, it does seem that Elliot Dyson will not be playing for the time being.
If you've been to the POFQ lately, please leave us a comment letting us know what you have seen or heard regarding the Scat Cats Club.
