    I’m really curious how long the show will last. It’s setting up shop in a flex space designed for temporary events, and it’s super out of the way. But the park needs the capacity, especially for families with young kids, who I’m sure will love it.

    “Temporary” for Disney could mean 2 months or 12 years :lol: It’ll be fun to see what this will be.

    The Incredibles dance party is really cute, but having both of these in the same park seems totally redundant.

    The Incredibles thing is supposed to end in August, however, with the area going back to being backstage space. This seems like it’ll be around longer.

    That sign looks pretty nice for a "temporary" attraction.

    Idk that Disney themselves have actually ever called this temporary.

    yes. With the crowds that GESWL will attract, and the shortage of rides in DHS, I'd expect this to be around for a good while.

    Show run time is 10 minutes. With that short of a show, not much can happen. I'm expecting to be disappointed and my expectations have always been low anyway. Then again, this show is aimed more at kids than someone like me. Of course, the concept of this sounds cool had they fleshed it out more.

    I can see why capacity was rumored to be high with the show being so short though... you can probably git a couple hundred into the theater per show and if ops is on tops of things, could run as many as 4-5 shows per hour. Rumor is 5 minute turn around between shows.

    With this show relying all on the AA, screens and projections, the show won't require much man-power to run it. Mostly just queuing people up for the next show and then ushering them inside.

    Yeah, 10 minutes doesn't really feel like enough time, but I guess we'll have to see.
