Not a lot of detail, but actor friend heard the show is closing permanently at the end of the year. A shame, really fit the DAK theme (with actual living animals!) and employed a lot of talented comedic actors.

Just a guess: Sounds like Live entertainment cost cutting. Pay for Pandora not delivering as much as expected. More cuts to come at AK.

Depends on what comes. New show or attraction or does it stand empty for years and years?
Disney leaves a lot of things abandoned, but the Entertainment team is savvy and loves to put empty space to use (hence why the Stitch M&G inside of SGE is a thing).

Now, whether we get a replacement show or a meet and greet will be very telling, but I don't expect the theatre to sit unused for too long.

I do wonder if this is part of a plan for a walking path back to Planet Watch and the expansion pad behind Asia. Maybe an alternate path from the train short-term, area to access new expansion longer-term?

Less "savvy" - more "drawn to AC like cockroaches to garbage."
