I will MISS “Twas the night before Christmas” :frown:
[B]I saw this article online:[/B] A new show replaces a Christmas classic at Disney World
“Mickey’s 'Twas the Night Before Christmas” show will no longer be available for viewing at Walt Disney World with the removal of the Galaxy Palace Theater. The show will be replaced with a new show starring some Disney-Pixar stars.
Starting on Tuesday, November 10 with the Magic Kingdom’s first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party of the season, there will be a new show premiering to the public in Tomorrowland.
The new show, “Totally Tomorrowland Christmas” is an interesting concept with Stitch, Buzz Lightyear, and Mike Wazowski trying to discover the true meaning of Christmas. While the show will include Christmas classic songs, it will have a more ‘upbeat’ and mix the songs with a more modern style.
The show will also include party-goers and dancers and will use the stage built for the short lived “Stitch’s Supersonic Celebration” show that both opened and closed earlier this year. Here’s hoping this new show does better than the pervious show to use this stage.
The most disturbing part of this new show is that it also signals the end of the classic “Mickey’s 'Twas the Night Before Christmas” show which had been performed annually during the Christmas season at the once long standing (and quickly deteriorating) Galaxy Palace Theater. As mentioned earlier, with that theater gone, so is the show.
“Mickey’s 'Twas the Night Before Christmas” was a long running seasonal show that combined classic Disney characters with the long adored Christmas classic story and even used a live band and professional singers to perform all the Christmas hits. From Minnie’s version of “Santa Baby” to Goofy’s entrance as Santa Claus, the show will undoubtedly be missed by the Disney faithful that has enjoyed the show as a staple of their Christmas season year in and year out.
Everything else from previous years will be mostly the same, with minor changes of course. The Christmas parade, Holiday Wishes, and even the “Celebrate the Season” castle show will still be available at the Christmas parties and during normal operating hours the during the weeks surrounding Christmas Day.
