Disney Parks Plans on Bringing Back Recently Canceled Shows and Entertainment
At the IAPAA Expo, Josh D’Amaro, Chairman of Disney Parks, Experiences, and Products, stated that Disney is planning on bringing back entertainment that was canceled indefinitely.
Almost every stage show at Walt Disney World has been discontinued during the COVID-19 pandemic, and hundreds of entertainment Cast Members were recently laid off. The canceled shows include “Festival of the Lion King”, “Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage”, Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, and “Finding Nemo – The Musical.” At the still-shuttered Disney California Adventure, the “Frozen: Live at the Hyperion” and “Mickey and the Magical Map” shows have also gone dark.
For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration is one of the few shows currently performing at Walt Disney World, after having reopened in early October.
No timeline was announced for the eventual return of shows and entertainment to the parks, but we’ll keep you updated as further changes occur.
