The end of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show with Mickey and Friends?

While I was at DLP last week I had a very interesting conversation with a CM about the future of dinner show Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show with Mickey and Friends.

The rumour they have heard is that as part of the expansion and refurbishment of the Disney Village the 20 year old show will end and the building will be closed for one year while it is being refurbished and turned into an ice rink and arena. Which would then become a permanent home for Disney on Ice.

With all DLP rumours I never believe them until things actually start to happen but this one does appear to make some sense. The BBWWS arena would make an excellent arena for ice shows and Disney on Ice tour around Europe every year. Logistically giving Disney on Ice a permanent home at DLP would be a good idea.

It would give them a permanent European base for rehearsals and set storage and would be the ideal location to launch their European tours from.

BBWWS is now over 20 years old, it's the longest running dinner show in Europe and they are having problems recently filling all the seats twice a night. It does make you wonder if the show actually makes a profit.

If this does happen it will increase the seating capacity of the arena and enable the arena to host many different ice shows over a season. It would be a lot easier for them to change the style of the ice show more often as Disney on Ice launch a new show every year and some times twice a year.

Sorry Jonjo but at 20 years BBWWS doesn't come close to Europes longest running dinner show. Pirates Adventure dinner show in Majorca is now in its 28th year.

You can get tickets from 30€ which I don't think is bad for a meal and a show.

For me what ruined it was adding Mickey and friends. Much better before and keeping with the original BB show which toured Europe all those years ago

Oh nooo - at the risk of controversy, this news actually saddens me!

BBWWS is one of my favourite things about Disneyland Paris, it is part of the resort and signature to DLRP. The show brings back so many wonderful memories from the 20 years I have grown up in the resort.

I love the idea of Disney on Ice having a permanent fixture, so I say "EXPAND - DON'T REPLACE!" Who's with me?!

(Thinks for keeping us posted though Jonjo - I love your rumour tip offs )

I agree, I preferred it before the addition. I personally think it doesn't flow aswell now.

Regards to the rumour of an ice rink, I would like to see a change and this could be good. It would kind of like the permanent Cirque de Soleil shows

You have to buy them at least 5 days before your visit - They are called Billet Malin - and you can get them online from several resellers here in France or from the idf Disney site.

It's 30€ for the 21.30 showing and 40€ for the 18.30 one.

You can even get both shows at 30€ during the twice yearly flash sales - next one is late summer

I don't like this rumour - how would they (DOI) make their money with this?? Its the kind of show that sells out touring, but its bad enough in winter months being cold outside in DLP without being cold inside too, and paying for it!! And I personally think that as they cut Mickey's Winter Wonderland, ice shows are not high on their list? Even with seasonal changes in storylines. I'll be sad if BB goes, I love that chilli haha!

It sounds weird they cut off Fantilussion and Tarzan during the summer, but are going to spend money on an ice rank?

It all depends on so much I guess, will there be shows every night and such.

I never been to the BBWWS, so don't really have an idea what kind of food you get and what the show is really like.

I imagine it won't be DLRP who will be paying for it, the company that runs Disney on Ice and Walt Disney company will stump up the money
