This is merely to replace the stage, nothing more than that.
Instead of BatB, a better choice would be to have unique Broadway style shows, that can only be seen in Disney Springs. Moana would probably see Hamilton-style ticket sales.If this show has a dedicated fan base, the solution is clear, and it’s one Disney should absolutely love. Build a Broadway quality theatre in Disney Springs, stick the Broadway B&B in their, and charge nice big prices for seats. They can package a show with a meal, offer luxury boxes, cabanas, whatever - and it won’t even feel like an upcharge! Rumor is Uni is about to do something like this, but Disney has far more material to fill such a theatre (or perhaps several - build a mini theatre district around Cirque and that area of the Springs will finally have its own character).
It's well loved because there's little else to do in the park for children under a certain age or for those not fond of thrill rides.So I get it, its old BUT it is well loved.
Im glad some one is keeping track .Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage is 27 years and 2 months old. That means it has already lasted longer than:
World of Motion (13 years and 2 months)
America Sings (13 years and 9 months)
Horizons (14 years and 3 months)
Journey Into Imagination (15 years and 7 months)
Wonders of Life (17 years and 2 months)
Adventures thru Inner Space (18 years and 1 month)
The Living Seas (19 years and 7 months)
Both Disneyland Mine Trains (20 years and 6 months)
20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Submarine Voyage (22 years and 11 months)
Disneyland's Star Tours (23 years and 6 months)
All Studio Backlot Tours at Disney MGM/Hollywood Studios (25 years and 5 months)
All Tomorrowland Flight Attractions (25 years and 7 months)
Magic Kingdom's Mr. Toad's Wild Ride (26 years and 11 months)
Captain Hook's Pirate Ship Restaurant (27 years and 1 months)
Attractions it will soon surpass:
Disneyland's Peoplemover (28 years and 1 months)
Great Movie Ride (28 year and 3 months)
Disneyland's Country Bear Playhouse/Jamboree (29 years and 6 months)
Tahitian Terrace (30 years 10 months)
Disney Springs would be a better choice to have a resident Disney Theatrical production, although I bet The Lion King would be their choice.Instead of BatB, a better choice would be to have unique Broadway style shows, that can only be seen in Disney Springs. Moana would probably see Hamilton-style ticket sales.
I don’t want to see BatB leave DHS, but I would like it to be plussed a bit. It’s long past due.
I agree, but this is why this is precisely when they should have been changing this show over. Even if it took six months, having another new offering with a high capacity would really help DHS when SWGE hits. This was an obvious and fairly easy place to do it IMO.At this point, there is no way they can close the attraction permanently(as many above are wishing). It is way too close to SWL opening, and they need every show/attraction/ride open come December, no matter good, bad or anywhere in between.
