Default More entertainment closures - Nemo the Musical supposedly closed for good

I really don't understand WDW's strategy here:

That would be truly disappointing. We love that show.

If the rumor turns out to be wrong - great.

If the rumor turns out to be right but it is in order to make room for a new show - fair enough.

If they are just going to mothball the building -

I hope itís a rumor that is proved false. We really enjoy the show and itís on our every trip list.

If it is done forever, I canít wait to see what they put in its place!!! I saw Tarzan Rocks once. It was done quite well with high energy and lots of action butÖÖnot my favorite.

Sigh...
The best stage show in WDW bites the dust.
Great music and storytelling. I watched it every visit, sometimes twice!
The only consolation is that I have all the songs in iTunes.

I have to find them!! I love Go With The Flow!!

I was sad when Tarzan Rocks closed but ended up enjoying Nemo (and the accompanying AC). Iíll reserve judgement for now.

Of course, Disney, you have a replacement show ready to go there, just like "Nemo" replaced Tarzan. What's that? Unfortunately, I'm not surprised. Just very disappointed.

We didn't see Nemo every trip (that honor belongs to Lion King) but it was a great show and very well done. It's also a great "people eater" for crowds.

I'll cut them some slack during COVID times, but long-term they will need to offer something of a very high caliber and very high capacity as a replacement or else it's the Disney "Less for More" strategy as prices increase and offerings decrease.

I was kind of surprised to see that article. I thought we more or less knew at least 6 months ago that wasn't coming back. Perhaps they just finally confirmed it

And not only was the show good, but one of the best air conditioned retreats on a hot day!
