Is the Lion King Show shutting down?,and if so when? THANKS
Not anytime soon, if at all. They recently announced that they would build the new theater before shutting down the current one.
Where was this "announced"? Plans for the new theater have been submitted to the South Florida Water Management district for approval (these are public records), but I don't believe Disney has made any public statements about the show.
THANKS!! Smitch. for the info......Great PIC!
You're welcome and thanks! Also, to the Disboards!
Sorry, that was a poor choice of wording on my part. They have filed for the new theater, but they also just renewed the entire cast's contracts. The majority of insiders (or those who think they are anyway) believe that the new theater will be complete before they need to stop the show to move it. As of now, it is not scheduled in any official rehab listings through July. Of course, anything can happen between now and then, but we knew about Test Track's refurb unofficially a long time before they officially announced it, so hopefully they are right about this as well.
