Beetlejuice Extended at Universal, Plus More Orlando Entertainment News

November 27, 2015, 12:04 PM · Here's a quick round-up of entertainment changes at the Orlando-area theme parks.

Universal Orlando has extended the run of Beetlejuice's Graveyard Revue at Universal Studios Florida through Jan. 5. Universal previously had announced that the show would close in December, as its theater will be demolished to clear space for the new Fast & Furious - Supercharged attraction that also is claiming the former Disaster! theater.

Walt Disney World has confirmed that its Canadian Lumberjacks show at Epcot will close on Tuesday, Nov. 30. The show started late last year as a replacement for Off Kilter, the longer-running Celtic rock band that had played on the outdoor stage in Epcot's Canada pavilion. The Canadian Holiday Voyageurs will take over the stage for Epcot's Holidays Around the World event.

Next door in Epcot's United Kingdom pavilion, Disney has added Quickstep, a quartet that plays English, Scottish and Irish music. Members play the fiddle, flute, guitar, bagpipes and an Irish frame drum. Quickstep has begun its performances already and appears in the pavilion Wednesdays through Sundays.

Seriously if you get on the rides quicker at Disney World you'll have more rides to go on and no wait times.
The Disney World Old Fast pass System needs to happen where people can get on the rides quicker. I hope this has been an interest for the whole universe and it would make me and my family proud

November 28, 2015 at 9:11 PM · I am perhaps the biggest Universal Orlando cheerleader on TPI, and I still haven't been able to talk myself into seeing that show.... and it seems to have 9 lives.

Every other park / resort on the planet has jumped on the front of the line perk in one way or the other. I wish Disney would add it, but that will never happen.

November 29, 2015 at 5:23 PM · Funny thing, of all the times I've been to Universal, I've never actually seen this show. I've heard some pretty bad things about it, but I wanna watch it once just to say I did it.
