Walt Disney World’s “Piano Lady” Carol Stein Continues Performances During Furlough on Facebook Live

You may remember her from Epcot’s Rose and Crown Pub, or you may remember her from the lobby of Disney’s Grand Floridian Resort and Spa. Heck, you might even remember her from the Comedy Warehouse at Pleasure Island. Either way, at some point in the last thirty years if you’ve been to Walt Disney World, you’ve probably come across “The Piano Lady,” Carol Stein. Now, you can view her live performances online, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

  • Although at home and about to be furloughed from the Walt Disney Company, Stein has regularly been taking to Facebook Live to continue performing for an audience.
  • Stein performs the show to viewers who also make requests throughout the performance. A recent show was supposed to only be a few songs long but ended up lasting over an hour as viewers kept interacting online.
