DHS Expansion - "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast"

For the DHS Expansion, has there been any rumors about discontinuing "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast" live performances? I know those shows have a lot of tenure, especially with the movies being so popular and being a part of the Disney Renaissance. But, those shows (by themselves) have been around for 20 years. Couldn't they be replaced with other live (and interactive) shows, similar to Muppet*Vision or Sounds Danergous?

Sounds dangerous is never Open! It is the empty space that needs to have something done to it.

Until Disney does another Musical of some sort I don't see Little Mermaid or Beauty & the Beast going anywhere. The only thing I see possibly happening is maybe bringing the Broadway 'Mary Poppins' in for a limited run at the B&B theater.

I think disney is not looking to touch any of those shows at the moment. DHS needs rides and an expansion they are definitely not looking to do away with those shows at this point in time.

They could always bring back The Hunchback of Notre Dame and I'd be happy.

I actually felt that both Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast were pretty disappointing @ DHS. The quality of Festival of the Lion King, and particularly Finding Nemo : The Musical have spoiled me for these attractions.

I feel like the story edits that both went through to be sloppy. I understand the requirement for shortening the stories so that they can do more shows per day, but neither story really makes a lot of sense in the edited form.

I'd love to see either show refreshed or even cycled in and out.

Very interesting!!

We've never seen B&TB movie and my kids have never seen LM movie (I did 20+ years ago). They think those performances ARE the full story and they enjoy them.

I'd love to see a Tangled show. We all live that movie!

Sigh... I miss that show so much... with my favorite Disney Character of all time... so lovely, so funny, so witty: Disneyworld needs more Djali.

I wouldn't be opposed to some fresh material, so long as it was in keeping the live performance tradition of LM and BaTB. Tangled sounds perfect!

I'd like to see them add some "real" studio attractions like when it was MGM Studios. Re-open The Monster Sound Show where you can see how sound is developed for movies and then the selected audience members get to try their hand at re-creating the sounds for a short clip. The original was a short clip starring Martin Short and Chevy Chase. I was lucky to be selected once and had to press buttons that were of different sounds like a doorbell, chanderlier crashing, coocoo clock. Others where making the wind and thunder sounds or walking on the different surfaces. It was a good "Studio" attraction. The same with the original backstage tour. I enjoyed seeing the back lot where the houses from the different shows where film. Now you wouldn't even know that it was a studio but just another amusement park.
