Really? Are we a little over-reacting? The only thing that never changes is the fact that things change....

Seems like every year or two, one of my "favorite" attractions closes or changes. I'm not going to stop going because of it, I just find a new favorite!

No!!!! We were planning on seeing it next year! We've never seen it before. This is really upsetting news. Who cares about Avatar anyway? It's not Disney and it didn't strike interest in us when the movie came out. I really wanted to see Festival of the Lion King.

This has been my favorite show since we first took our girls to AK in 1999. We make a point to see it on every visit, in fact, on one non-park visit that was the only attraction we went to see. No rides, no other shows. We had APs, but limited time and only did a few restaurants and this show.

Please, please relocate it & bring it back after the Avatar construction is finished.

I'm not interested in Avatar at all, so this is a poor substitute at AK for me.

I don't think there has been any official announcement from WDW yet, right?

Just really breaks my heart we will miss it by a few weeks I really wanted the little kids to see it. DD has been watching it on youtube and was very excited about it. That should be a fun one to explain :/

Actually I would be as well-if it was an "addition" and not a "substitution". Heres hoping it reopens somewhere and soon.

Warning *** rumor *** warning *** rumor

WARNING *** RUMOR *** WARNING *** RUMOR

I heard today the "probable" relo spot for FOTLK
. . . between Tucker and Safari there is a gap
. . . the theater would be tucked back (offset) into the gap
. . . this will relocate the "lion show" into Africa

That would make sense to relocate there. Let's hope they do it quickly!

Some people's dislike. Disney pguest satisfaction polling for that area is very good.

Remember, just ecause some disboards people fail to get theming doesn't mean a majority of people do.
