There have been one thing that's on my nerves. Even though I am not a music major nor am into performance, I have wanting to play for Disney-themed weddings, or to entertain others. The last time that I played the piano at the Coke Corner was 8+ yrs ago. Haven't been there since that last time. Usually, there isn't a Disney-theme weddings near my area (NorCal) nor will there probably will be any, but I've been wanting to express all of my Disney songs, ranging from theme park music ("IASW", "Tiki Room", etc.) to movie love songs ("Can You Feel the Love Tonight?", "Married Life") to Disney Hero and Princess songs (" Go the Distance", "You'll Be in My Heart", "When You Wish Upon a Star", "Once Upon a Dream", etc.). The list goes on…I can also sight-read music, but will take some time to MASTER it.
I know this is not Disney-related, but I have to express it out to the MW community who have made me a Disney GEEK and am proud to be one.
How great that you can play those songs. And wonderful you played at Coke Corner- how did that come about? - HandMeAChurroImmaFaint

Well, I mainly played video game music, including the Super Mario Bros Theme, and some Disney songs, but that was when I was a teen. - dizneypianist 31.8 #4291 11:56PM
I could be wrong, but I think if you asked a cm at the grand, they would let you play there. Also, there is the piano in innoventions. I've played it many times. Not very successfully though, since I never bring sheet music with me. I know it's not the same as playing at coke corner, but if you want to play disney music around people who appreciate disney, that's where I'd start. And who knows? Maybe one of the wedding planners will overhear you at the grand. - LittleAprilShowers

I played both at Innoventions and Coke. When I went to Innoventions during that same trip, some CMs were surprised that I knew A LOT of songs, including the ones that I listed, but played wrong chords that didn't mix well with the melody. - dizneypianist 31.8 #4291 11:58PM
Hopefully one will, but it's up to fate. I can play A LOT more. I have tons of Disney songs memorized and would like to play at the Grand and Coke Corner, but I don't know when the next time I'll be able to go to SoCal and enjoy, since my family doesn't "get it" at all. My family got over it after going there 15+ times, since it's MUCH closer than WDW is. - dizneypianist
