The cheapest approach is to shut the ride down completely.I supposed if they are working to energize the show and make it more interactive, leveraging Maui could be a good call. But a lot of the changes as of late don't seem to be taking the "right" approach, just the cheap approach.
If the Tiki Birds do stay, then it sounds like this will be Under New Management Part 2: Moana and that chicken character join the show. Although I guess this wouldn't be as bad since it means the original show could come back when this IP is no longer in style.
Maybe, but if you think about it the best bang for their buck is to repurpose it to something more popular. They don't need to spend to build a new Moana ride, the Tiki Birds draw crowds again and you get a capacity boost at MK for a minimal amount of spend. If it gets popular enough (like Frozen Norway) they add FP+. That seems more likely to me to be the line of thinking. I know you probably disagree, but the first choice of management isn't always going to be just close things to cut costs...see CoP.Im sure thats in the realm of the possible outcomes as well
They should just go all in and get the rock to voice the new show. They can have him record his speech for the Hall of Presidents too since he's rumored to be running in 2020
