When Disney World reopened last year, a LOT changed, especially with entertainment.
Some entertainment went away altogether, while other experiences were modified to account for health and safety guidelines.
Welcome back, DFB friends! We’re here with another What’s New at Disney’s Hollywood Studios!
And, we’ve got plenty of updates to share with you! So, what are you waiting for? Let’s dive right on in!
The global health crisis has rattled the entertainment industry in a very serious way.
The Disney Parks are not excluded. With Disneyland remaining closed until further notice and many offerings (including some live entertainment) on hiatus for the foreseeable future in Disney World, Disney announced that 28,000 Cast Members would be laid off.
Although Walt Disney World has officially reopened, not all attractions and shows have reopened along with it.
Recently we’ve seen some experiences reopen that were not initially available. Other offerings, however, like the classic live shows at Disney’s Animal Kingdom like Finding Nemo: The Musical and Festival of the Lion King still remain closed. Now, we’ve got some new somewhat balanced news about entertainment offerings at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It seems one show is temporarily going away, but another performance will be temporarily appearing in its place!
Recently, a nationally-recognized panel of medical experts informed members of the music community it could be a long time before large ensembles could rehearse or perform together due to safety concerns from the global health crisis.
This realization was felt by chorus groups, theater performers, and opera companies who may need to rethink their craft for the next several months or maybe longer.
