The Disney Rumors are True as Another Popular Attraction is Closing Forever.

Attention all Disney fans! Are you ready for some breaking news that’s sure to rock your world? (Or at least make you sing “Under the Sea” in the shower for the next week.) I’m here to talk about the beloved Voyage of the Little Mermaid show. This was a must see at  Hollywood Studios in Walt Disney World Resort.

Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But wait, Hollywood Studios already has so many iconic live shows like Beauty and the Beast Live on Stage and For the First Time in Forever: A Frozen Sing-Along Celebration. What more could I possibly need?” Well, there was one show that was missing from that list: Voyage of the Little Mermaid. The 14-minute live show, Voyage of the Little Mermaid, enthralled audiences with its special effects and live performers, intricate puppets, and a giant Ursula singing “Poor Unfortunate Souls.” The show’s popularity kept it running for nearly 20 years, but according to Dining Disney, it ultimately came to an end.

Disney Rumors:

When Walt Disney World Resort reopened during the pandemic nightmare, the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show disappeared. Gossip spread that the theater was infested with mold and to make matters worse, the show was taken off the official Walt Disney World website. Furthermore, Inside the Magic reported that the puppets from the live show have been sold, which confirms that this classic attraction, sad to say is officially closed.

So what’s next for the theater and the beloved characters of the Little Mermaid? Will Disney refurbish the space and give us something new to sing and dance about? Only time will tell. But in the meantime, we’ll just have to make do with watching the movie on loop and singing “Under the Sea” in our bathtubs. Just don’t blame me if your coworkers start avoiding you because you can’t stop humming “Part of Your World.”

Splash Mountain At Disney World Closes Today And The Line Is More Than Three Hours Long

Today is the final day for Splash Mountain. When Disney World in Orlando closes today, Splash Mountain will close and begin it’s rebranding as “Tiana’s Bayou Adventure.” It will be based on the 2009 film, “The Princess and the Frog.” The rebranding is expected to finish in 2024. Splash Mountain included the animated characters from the 1946 Disney film, “Song of the South.” Critics have claimed that film portrays racial stereotypes and the movie has been banned. The movie is not on Disney+ and is not available for sale anywhere (legally, that is).

The lines are crazy today. Many of us equate Splash Mountain as a part of our childhood, riding the log ride when our parents took us to Disney World when we were kids. Splash Mountain has been in operation for 30 years. That’s a lot of childhoods, so the nostalgia was thick.

Despite a petition to save the ride, today is it. And many fans have gone to the Magic Kingdom for one last ride. Lines were reported to be in excess of 3 hours. That means the line to ride a 30 year old, falling apart, water ride is longer than just about any other attraction at the park today. People don’t care. They’ll wait however long it takes to get on the ride one last time. Fortunately for them, it’s 79 degrees in Orlando today, much warmer than it was last weekend. Here’s some pics from the park.
