As Disney continues to evaluate their phased reopening plans, there are whispered rumors that the plan is to keep the Voyage of the Little Mermaid show at Hollywood Studios in Orlando permanently closed.
The show has been running at Disney’s Hollywood Studios since 1992, and was reportedly under consideration to take a final bow before the COVID-19 pandemic shut the parks down. Between the extended closure due to COVID-19 and the ongoing battle with the Actors’ Equity union, Disney has decided to end the show rather unceremoniously, or so we hear.
The attraction’s queue was never marked for social distancing, which is an indication that there were no plans to reopen the show when the theme parks reopened. Other shows have had social distancing markers in place for when the union stalemate comes to an end.
The Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is complete with queue and seating social distancing markers; over at the Frozen Sing-Along, queue stickers and pre-show dots are in place; at Beauty and the Beast Live-on-Stage, there are extensive queue markers and it has been seen that the stadium seating is also marked like Indiana Jones.
Let’s not flip our fins just yet! You should treat this information as unofficial until Disney confirms it.
