The Disneyland Resort is closing the Newsies-inspired Red Car Trolley News Boys show at Disney California Adventure. The final performances will play on July 23.
One of the park atmosphere acts that debuted with Buena Vista Street in 2012, the Red Car Trolley News Boys lost their Red Car Trolley months ago when Disney took that attraction out of service due to the Marvel Land construction on the old A Bug's Land site claiming its Hollywood Land terminus. Without the Red Car that served as the "stage" for the show, the singing News Boys couldn't command the attention that did before... when the trolley rolled through Carthay Circle carrying the singers and a waving Mickey Mouse in his News Boy outfit.
Of course, with attendance sagging around the resort, that also made it easy for Disneyland to cut a few labor hours by closing the show, too.
But c'mon, Disney, haven't enough people already lost their jobs in the newspaper industry already? Now we can't even have pretend newspaper employees in a theme park, either?Tweet
