I've lost track of the number of times the online community has panicked because the Disney calendar was missing a show and they all assumed it was canceled. The calendar is a notoriously unreliable indicator of something going away or canceled.
Especially around Studio's projection shows.

However, in this case it was very odd that it was still not listed don Dec 1. I wasn't going to put an article about it prior to that, as I knew the calendar can be hit or miss, but I can't think of a time in the past when it has been wrong on the day-of.

Disneyland just announced what essentially amounts to the full return of day and nighttime entertainment next spring.

Sigh.

  • Tale of the Lion King (Fantasyland Theatre, but not a full stage show or return of Magical Map)
  • Celebrate Gospel! (also in Fantasyland Theatre)
  • Main Street Electrical Parade
  • Disneyland Forever!
  • Fantasmic!
  • World of Color

So we know FoF is coming back, possibly as soon as January according to a couple of people.
We know Fantasmic is returning.
Indy returns in just over a week.
A lot, but not all, of the Epcot entertainment is back.
Nemo is being “re-imagined”.

What else do we not yet know about for WDW? Is the Frozen singalong show back yet? I realise we don’t have actual dates for any of the above.

The former Little Mermaid location -- I don't think we have any idea what they're going to do there.

Frozen was one of the first offerings to return back in fall 2020.
The only things that don’t have any dates/info on returning still are:
Voyage of the Little Mermaid
Citizens of Hollywood
Citizens of Main Street
Main Street Trolley Show
Green Army Man Patrol
Jedi Training
Hoop De Doo
Spirit of Aloha

and then a number of character locations still unavailable such as Enchanted Tales, Ariels Grotto, Pete’s Silly Sideshow, Launch Bay, Celebrity Spotlight, Royal Somerhaus, Adventures Outpost, and a few others.

I think it was announced that Spirit Of Aloha is not returning...

Yes its just a case of radio silence but no announcement of its demise.
Exactly, that’s basically the case with everything at this point. If an offering is officially closed they do at some point usually have to notify those unions involved, but they could always quietly do so.

All Off Kilter fans, brace yourselves. They have announced they are disbanding and moving on in new directions. 😢


edit: why is that coming up so weird? The link works OK, just looks dodgy.

edit2: forget the link, here’s the text of the FB post:


Hello to our Off Kilter friends and family. For almost 25 years we have been performing in many amazing places. We started off when Disney took a chance on a rock band with a bagpiper. We had a great run there for 18 years. In the years since we left Epcot, there have been some amazing festivals that we have played at making so many friends along the way. Over the last year and half it has been tough on musicians and bands. Fortunately, that is slowly returning. This time has given us all time to reflect and we have decided to move on in other directions.
We want to thank you all for the love and support over the years and please know that we truly appreciate all of you. Thank you all and keep safe.
