LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- Beloved children's musician and Grammy Award winner Dan Zanes and Friends will be part of the lineup that gets kids bopping and singing when Playhouse Disney in Concert returns during Little Ones Travel Time beginning in late August -- after the busy summer vacation season -- at Walt Disney World Resort.

The Doodlebops and Johnny and the Sprites are also part of the concert series featuring a total of eight acts during Little Ones Travel Time Aug. 26-Oct. 28, 2007. The concerts will be presented each Thursday through Sunday during the expanded nine-week travel season.

Created for young families traveling to Disney with preschoolers and toddlers, Little Ones Travel Time also offers a resort package, targeted on-line planning tools and other services.

A special package for vacations between Aug. 26 and Sept. 22, 2007, offers a Free Disney Dining Plan. Packages include a five-day, four-night stay at select Disney value resorts, "Magic Your Way" theme park tickets and free Disney Dining plan (one table-service meal, one quick-service meal, one snack per day). Packages begin at $993 for two adults and one child aged 3-9. A second child aged 3-9 costs an additional $182. The package must be booked by June 24, 2007.

During Little Ones Travel Time, Fantasyland at Magic Kingdom opens an hour early on Sundays, Wednesdays and Fridays for Disney resort guests and their youngsters to explore softer attractions such as "it's a small world," Mad Tea Party, Peter Pan's Flight and Pooh's Playful Spot playground. During this bonus hour, wee ones can play ball with Goofy, enjoy "Peter Says" with Peter Pan, participate in other games and activities and even experience classic Fantasyland attractions with characters.

Some new Magic Kingdom fun is coming in September with the opening of Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique inside Cinderella Castle.

Traveling with preschoolers takes patience and preparation. Disney's on-line planning tools, a new Magical Beginnings guide map highlighting age-appropriate attractions, hassle-reducing services and booking tips make navigating the parks easier than ever.
