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.
