Disney delays planned opening for Magic Kingdom's Monsters, Inc. show

Published: December 28, 2006 at 7:37 PM

The Orlando Sentinel reports that the Disney's shelved its plans to debut its new Monsters, Inc. Laugh Floor Comedy Club attraction next month. The show was to open in the former Timekeeper space in Tomorrowland at Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.

The Sentinel paraphrased a Disney spokesperson explaining the change in plans: "The delay will give staff members a chance for more training in the complex technology being used, and writers a chance to re-script parts of the show based on audience feedback."

Even if it's re-written it's still going to be extremely lame. The concept sucks. No one cares to see a few animated characters talk and spit out corny jokes.

Franki, it's in the Magic Kingdom. They've pretty much got the younger set covered there.

By the way, what does Monsters Inc have to do with Tomorrowland (ducks behind couch)?

They should make it based on their new movie Meet the Robinsons. Maybe the movie will be a flop, but at least it has something to do with the future!

EXACTLY. What does Monsters, Inc. have to do with Tomorrowland? It's things like this that drive me insane about Disney.

Land theming appears to be a dying concept at Disney. Now, it's just "put the attraction in whatever space we've just closed." Putting Disneyland's Pooh ride in Critter Country, on the shores of the Rivers of America, was the wake-up call for me on this point. What the heck?!?
