Covid – 19 has caused a multitude of changes and ride closures at Disney. The latest possible victim? Voyage of the Little Mermaid.
Hollywood Studios, where the show is located, is open. However, it has not been re -opened with the rest of Disney’s stage shows. Fans are now speculating that it may never re – open, as unlike other shows in the parks, it is not blocked off with social distancing measures.
The speculation has been around for some time now, as fans feel the show is outdated compared to the newer additions to Hollywood Studios. Last year, rumors that photos were taken for Disney’s archives, made fans assume the writing was on the wall.
Was Covid – 19 the last straw? As previously reported, the Actor’s Equity Union is urging actors not to take jobs at Disney. This could have caused Disney to close the show, rather than struggle to keep it staffed. Of course, this is all just speculation, and we wont know for sure until Disney let’s us know. Until then, what ride or show would you hate to see closed?
