Disney to close Pocahontas show at Animal Kingdom
Scott Powers at the Orlando Sentinel reports today
another end-of-the-fiscal-year closing at Walt Disney World.
The Pocahontas show at Disney's Animal Kingdom will run its last show on Sept. 27. (Disney's fiscal year starts Oct. 1.) Last month, Disney announced that the Pleasure Island nightclubs would close the same day.
That's a real shame. My kids enjoyed that show a lot. Especially with the real animals running around on stage.
In the end, I think, for all their profiteering and what not, Disney still (and I'm talking mostly about imagineering here) wants to produce a good show - including rides, shops, restaurants, etc. I have no doubt that they'll find something to take over the Pocahontas show. Plus, it's not like Pocahontas was one of the hotter Disney properties as of 2008, so I can't say that I blame them.
I think it was a good show idea, but executed badly. I must say I was not a fan of the show and hope they can redo it. Its great with animals though, especially since North American animals seem to be rare at Animal Kingdom. I hope they keep it a North American Animal Show.
