Welp, there goes anyone's hope to see some kind of Wall-E Based film for the theater people wanted or something or other...But, it had it's run...At least I'll finally get to experience a closing attraction while I'm there.....I hope I can make it if it isn't busy...But, we know how things are when attractions close....But, for now I leave this with one of the best quotes of the film... Pumbaa: DAM! Timon: Hey Watch your Language Pumbaa!
The Sunset Showcase next to RnRC isn't really a theatre as it has a flat floor and no permanent seating. Look at photos of the villains event where tables and chairs are used. Therefore its perfect for those sort of drink/dance/show events, but less good for performing arts.
The cheer-leading is moving to Wide World of Sports and a new purpose built arena is under construction (should be almost completed I think).
Yes, the film is dated and should be reimagined. However, when you think about the general pattern of behavior . . . . . . .
Wonders of Life - Festival Center
Innoventions - Epcot Character Spot, Empty Space
Odyssey Restaurant - Festival Space
ImageWorks - DVC Member Lounge
Universe of Energy (Show Building) - Queue
Circle of Life Theater - Disney Performing Arts Youth Program
Bingo. This was just a convenient move to clear the space without shifting the resident park (not like they had an entire innoventions area...) and move things along on plans for Circle of Life, who’s replacement we should get pre 50th.
It's not so much that I like the film, but I do enjoy sitting in a dark room for a period of time, all while having some OK A/C. It worked wonders the last few July 4th's. Now that this and Energy are gone, I've lost my two summer napping spots, haha.
