I’m so glad the bear was safely captured and released.

I’m sure she just wanted to see the Country Bear Jamboree before it gets redone!

Today marks the 52nd anniversary of the opening of Walt Disney World and the Magic Kingdom! It is also the 41st anniversary of Epcot.

Happy Anniversary to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

Very exciting news for TLM fans!!!

New ‘The Little Mermaid’ Show Coming to Disney’s Hollywood Studios

https://disneyparks.disney.go.com/blog/ ... d-studios/

There were rumors the building that housed the stage show was to be demolished due to mold, so I’m very excited that not only is Ariel coming back to DHS, but in a new, updated version of the stage show!! TBH, I actively avoided the old TLM show because it had not been well maintained IMO. So glad they have decided to give TLM the care and attention it deserves, and that TLM will continue to have a major presence in this park!!!

I wonder: Will it still have puppets? How similar will the new show be to the old? I'm happy, too, that we'll have a TLM show again.

I’m curious, too. With the addition of “Kiss the Girl,” it’s hard to imagine them making a show longer so I wonder if they’re cutting anything? But who knows, they may surprise us! I really hope it’s something special.

Audition information has been posted for the TLM stage show coming to DHS, as well as new concept art: https://wdwnt.com/2024/02/new-art-puppe ... maid-show/

It looks like instead of a CM on all fours in a costume, this time Max will be a puppet. A better call, I think!
