Looks like FOTLK will not be closing after all?
That would be great

Where did you get that info?

It would be sad if such a beautiful, well done show was canceled. I've loved that movie since it came out when I was a kid and saw the show twice during our last visit. I think they did an amazing job on it.

As far as Avatar land...I could take it or leave it. I remember liking the movie when it came out, but for the life of me I couldn't tell you anything about the plot/characters now. It was good but forgettable.

What I would love to see is Epcot and Hollywood Studios improved. In all honesty I think they need much more updates and attractions than Animal Kingdom.

I have been talking to some sources and they have told me that Disney will operate as business as usual until its time to announce

Its not out of the realm of possibility to add singers then one month later close the show

so while this is good news for FOTLK, it is no means a "done deal"

Just so you know, this is all speculation. Disney has not announced anything

It was Pocahontas with blue aliens in space.

I hate that! I haven't seen it yet, but I've heard it is wonderful. I don't think we'll have time to see it when we go in December and I won't be back before next summer.

So, for now, we're thinking that it should still be open in July? I'm going in July and the one time that I went to Disney World (ten years ago), this was the highlight...

It may be open. Or it could close soon. Disney probably won't give too much notice

I'm still bummed that "Hunchback" closed. I sure hope they don't close Lion King. I really enjoy the show.
