    Two quick questions for you experts:

    1. Aladdin doesn't show up in the calendar after February 4th (the calendar currently goes up to the 15th). I haven't seen anything about a shut down or refurbishment (didn't they just re-do the theatre about 18 months ago?). Other than the issues with the carpet, is there something else going on that I haven't heard about?

    2. Any idea when the refurbishment of the Columbia is expected to be done? It's going to be a huge bummer if we're going to miss Fantasmic.

    Thanks in advance.

    SS Columbia is scheduled to be down until the 18th.

    The calendar needs time to fill in completely. I don't see why Aladdin won't show up as it fills in.

    Unless you are a regular here you are not aware that every month - every single month - there is a post (often with more panic than yours! ;)) about why the entertainment is not being listed for the upcoming month and whether things are being canceled, etc., etc. It is just how DLR rolls. :)

    According to MousePlanet:
    "Fantasmic! – on hiatus at least January 23 through February 17 due to the Sailing Ship Columbia refurbishment, but may return even later in the spring."

    HTH,

    I was so disappointed about Fantasmic! When I booked the trip Fantasmic was there on the TP site. But they KNEW Columbia would be down for refurb. It didn't occur to me that no Columbia =no Fantasmic. Why would I know that? I haven't been to DL since I was 6 years old. If Aladdin is cancelled too that would really suck. My boys love shows! We are just hoping there will be fireworks, at least, and of course we should be able to see WOC.

    TP really needs to work on their DLR research.

    Some of the ladies from the Dis Diva's trip was planning on doing the Fantasmic Dessert Seating the last weekend of February, but the CM in that is taking care of all our dining & show reservations called our contact to let us know that Fantasmic is down Jan. 9 thru Mar. 2. We also had another gal that was going for a family trip & when she called to make a ressie for the dessert seating, she was told the same thing.

    Thanks all.

    I'll cross my fingers that Aladdin will show up on the calendar and that Fantasmic opens up a day early (the 17th is the last day of our vacation - want to be gone before the President's day crowds show up).

    During the slowest months it runs four days a week. Sometimes it's been Thurday through Sunday. Other times it's been Friday through Monday. It can also be five days a week and is all seven days during the busiest periods.
