I had a stick of CareFree gum, but it didn't work. I felt pretty good while I was blowing that bubble, but as soon as the gum lost its flavor, I was back to pondering my mortality.

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! 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.

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

I agree...we missed it on our last trip in January, however I am making sure not to miss it on our upcoming trip .

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.

Way too often Disney closes or changes something that's good to make room for something new. I wish that they could sometimes do both. I hope that FOTLK comes back elsewhere. It truly is an excellent show - probably the best at WDW.

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 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
