I know I read SOMEWHERE that it is only closing to move. It even said a reopen date, which was before our trip in November for sure. Not sure exactly when it was thinking summertime? But if they are delaying it now, maybe we will end up missing it after all.

If they are going to move it maybe they will get the new place ready first and then make a quick move.

Every rumor I have seen says its moving to either Harambe or Rafikis Planet Watch although they would have to build a whole new theatre and certainly ground has not broken

I have not seen a reopeing date, but considering there is no closing date anything at this point is pure speculation

I'm so mad about this because FotLK is our favorite show - one of the few reasons we go to Animal Kingdom and now it might be closed when we go. I HATE Avatar and think this Avatar land is the stupidest thing I've ever heard - in my opinion. I know people liked it, but personally I don't see where it's Disney, Animal Kingdom, nature - it's not reality and Animal Kingdom I thought - was Disney's way of getting families to connect with nature. UGH!

Here is a video I took of the entire show.

It's gonna hold me off until I can see it again after it (hopefully) reopens.

At most it will be closed for a bit before it moves to its new digs

Im really happy to hear that its still playing & that it might not close til later in the year!! I'm still keeping my eye on auditions!! Haha!! When it is set to move, it will have to close for a week or so to move all of the floats, costumes and such over and get everything re set up & even get all the tech stuff re set up!

I'm happy that it's still open! This is one of our favorite things to see in Disney and we wanted DD to see it since it is her first trip. so as long as it stays open for 2 more weeks, I'm good!

I am not sure if this has already been mentioned as this thread is quite long but I have seen the blueprint plans on other non-Disney websites that show plans for what absolutely appears to be a NEW FOTLK Show Building behind the Dawa Bar / Tusker House / Kusafiri Coffe Shop Building in Africa.
The plans show that a path will be built from the edge of the Dawa Bar and bridge from Discovery Island to Africa to the show building located directly behind the Tusker House. It also appears that there are area's (segments) in and around the new show building for carts / merchandise buildings, etc.

Also, it appears that a NEW path in this FOTLK area will also lead over to the current Camp Minnie-Mickey (future Avatar Land) area. Again, I thought this was rather common knowledge of this apparent propposal to build the new FOTLK building in the Africa section where it essentially belongs.

Although it is purely conjecture on my part, I could see this new show building being built and a relative "small" downtime as they move / rehab and upgrade the floats, etc from the old to new show building.....

I believe from what I have read that this show will continue at the new location in Africa at some point and time in the near future with some type of relatively small downtime for the conversion once the new show biulding is complete or very close to completion.
