This is such great news! Cannot wait to get back and take the show in once again!
There’s a few lines here and there that are questionable and are probably going to be revised.
Over the last few years before the shut down they already tinkered with some parts of the script. After Pulse they eliminated the gun and had Dolly/Annie Oakley make a fist instead, after the alligator “incident” they changed the rhyme for people from Louisiana (it used to end with “there they sit gator bait”) in the 50 states number, the “Indian scout” audience volunteer lost the feather headband and became the “wilderness scout,” etc. For a time they tinkered with not having Jim and Flora sing Shenandoah/ This Land is Your Land from the audience and instead kept them onstage, but then they returned to the floor for that number. Most of these changes would go unnoticed by 99% of the audience, unless you’d seen the show many times. The point is, they’ve always shown a willingness to tinker with the show.
My hunch is that these revisions will be more significant than the ones I described above, but less significant than the major overhaul the show got in 2012, when entire numbers were changed and poor Flora saw her part cut down to 7 spoken lines (and still plenty of singing).
Stay tuned, I guess.
Was 2012 when they changed the Hoop Dee Doo song also?
I still miss the original Hoop Dee Doo polka, it's a shame they couldn't work out a deal for the rights.
Still, the show in recent years was good. There's no reason that a tinkering/updating of the script should lead to an inferior show. It's a slap-stick / vaudeville show - you can do that and be funny and still be appropriate for todays society. It's always about the execution.
From what I remember, online at 6, phones open at 7. That’s usually the way it is.I may have asked this question before, and if I did I apologize, but when reservations are able to be made this Thursday, can you do them online at 6 AM? Or do you have to wait to call at 7 AM?
For the life of me I don't know why WDW doesn't have more dinner theater shows. It seems like a no brainer and a cash cow to boot. They're leaving money on the table but not having more dinner shows
It’s not, but the tables and chairs are higher. 100% not the same, but I guess I see what they’re thinking?
