yikes for Disney if that is true but those CMs will have a very nice paycheck with that backpay.
^ Amen to that. I really feel for the Entertainment CMs. I remember when Disney started to cut the performers around World Showcase - they found out the same day as the general public that their days were numbered (for some, it was the very same week). It's nice to know that something good is coming out from the disastrous show.
I've read some glowing Disney fanboy reviews and I just don't buy it - I will be giving this a miss on my AK visit next month.
Disney just announced that Jungle Book night show will end Sept. 5th. There will not be a replacement until ROL returns after it's fixed (if ever).
So much for evening entertainment.
This summer has been a disaster at Disney. Not unrecoverable or unrepairable, but a disaster none the less.
Maybe they could replace the Tree of Life with Groot. At night they could play Awesome Mix and have him dance.
Seriously, after years of inactivity they are finally improving the parks. I suspect much of their problem is trying to do so much quickly after waiting so long.
I think Animal Kingdom is officially off the cards for me now on my next trip. I looked at the app yesterday and Everest is the only ride I would actually consider waiting for and it was closed.
I think DHS gets a hard time but AK is in far worse condition.
Dinosaurs is closed for refurb. Everest should be operating. It just may have had a technical breakdown when you looked at it.
There are still shopping and dining experiences at the Springs ...
Safe to assume nighttime safari done too? Saw it coming, but really enjoyed that.
I'm sure that's what it was. Kali Rapids was also down. I'd have been incredibly pissed if I had paid full price for a ticket that day.
That's the trouble with a park with few rides. You're really notice it when one or two are down. Not to mention it seriously drives up the wait times on the other rides.
I agree. DHS may only have 5 rides, but IMO they're all worth doing. DAK has 7 rides... but when you take out the DinoRama garbage and the train to Rafiki's (which doesn't count IMO), there's... 4. 1 of which is an underwhelming short water ride, another of which is a falling apart dark ride that terrifies kids.
I am surprised and dismayed that Disney would get rid of Jungle Book without rivers of light being ready yet.
It's expensive and not good so I don't fault them. They just need to pivot from being reactionary to being more proactive with the parks.
They have dumped it already? So much for the Marigold Hotel. Disney is a mess at this moment in time. How can they waste sooooooo much money? It's stupid...
Looking at the crowd calendar for Sept., it's looking like AK is closing right around sunset most nights. There went all that advertising and marketing saying come see the night spectaculars at AK from August through December, I guess.
The Jungle Book: Dead With Science
I feel sorry for the animals. A good deal of training must have gone in to get them used to the noise and being active at night. Now they just have to go back to the way it was.
They just extended the hours at AK though September. 11:00 weekends and 9:00 the rest of the month.
Why? No one goes now...
