Festival of the Lion King to close in January
 
From Screamscape this morning:

Confirmed - (8/10/12) The latest buzz from the Rhinos is that the Festival of the Lion King show is expected to close in January to make way for Avatar. The long term plan is to move to into a new theater somewhere, but it sounds like the show will close down completely long before this happens.

Oh no! :simba: Relocating it is one thing, but to shut it down completely is just wrong.

Guess I'd better make sure I see it in October, just in case.

Boo. We saw it for the first time this past summer, and thought it was amazing! Hopefully the close is temporary, and they'll reopen it at a later time.

Bummer:( That's my family's favorite show. We don't want to see an Avatar show when the movie didn't interest us.

same! I was planning on going to see it next year!

sydsmom1997 08-10-2012 07:55 AM

I guess I better be sure to see it one last time in August! This makes me sad!

Man, that's strike 2 for Avatarland in my book.

msp2mco 08-10-2012 08:06 AM

I'm so sad to hear this too. It's my favorite show. I hadn't seen it in a few years, but on our last trip, we went to it. Now I am especially glad that we did.

I see this crop up a lot. I think Avatar & AK go together well - the 'moral' in the movie is about looking after our planet, conservation yadda yadda yadda, the same message as AK, and a message Disney has always pushed.

And no, I'm not an Avatar movie fan - I bat for the Star Wars team ;)

Oh my gosh! FOTLK is such a favorite of ours!!

Both our daughters got picked to participate and each was the kid at the end who Timon singles out at the end. Made me cry tears of pure happiness every time!!

We won't be there until Feb so we won't even get a chance to say goodbye. :-(

Oh no! I haven't seen that in forever and were definitely planning on doing it in January. Maybe they will push it back a bit
