    Sad The Billies are finished?

    This is a cut and paste from a Billy M.B.
    Just a heads up for all the Billy fans out there. The Golden Horsehoe will be going down for a revamping and re-modeling May 15 to June 15 2006. The facility will be turned into a different eating venue. Since more guests were requesting more ice cream, not odv carts the Golden Horseshoe will be serving ice cream sundaes and other such fair to be determined. I do not know what entertainment has in store for the stage area. Many ideas are being tosed about.One such idea is to put Laughing Stock in there as they have become very very very popular with the guests. Since all entertimnent contracts are now being looked at rather closely by the Bob I & John L.., the Billy group many be released from contract much like the Dapper Dans are now. Whos last day will be March 25th. I will let you know more as the story continues. (Please print this so others may be aware of what is happening. Thank u )
    As I have done here.

    I just saw them in January - they are still so funny. I hope they don't go away altogether!

    Will trade husband for Disneyland and DCA Pins!

    I was hoping for saucy showgirls to return to the Golden Horseshoe, not saucy ice cream!

    Re: The Billies are finished?

    I just watched them on Sunday. Elvis Billy asked who was seeing them for the 1st time. Then he asked who had seen the show before. He then said "Thank you, sincerely, you are the reason that we are still here." So, go see them! If every show is full the big wigs aren't going to get rid of them.

    By the way, the show was awesome.

    That I think is the problem to begin with... seeing laughing stock is performing outside their door...

    Dumb management...

    Re: The Billies are finished?

    The day the Billies leave the Horseshoe is the day people don't show up for their shows at all. I would understand if there wasn't that big of crowds, but all of the ones I've been to have had people turned away at the door.

    It boggles the mind.

    Re: The Billies are finished?

    I always see the Billy performances full of people and they enjoy it very much. They are more part of Frontierland than Laughing Stock. Honestly, I haven't seen Laughing Stock yet, but put them in another part of the resort. Don't kick the Billies out!

    Dapper Dans must stay too!

    Are they converting the whole kitchen to ice cream or will ice cream be added to the menu??

    If Billies do get kicked out, open up Big Thunder BBQ for them to perform and if at all possible, bring back the food there too.

    PS- didn't Frontierland have some sort of western outlaw gunfight or something? Not the ones that used to be in Knott's. I remember seeing performers in western outfits in front of the Golden Horseshoe...

    in my opinion, and sorry, im skipping alot of the posts but if disney lets bill hill and the hillbillies go, they are stupid! they have been there for at least what eleven twelve years? and every time i go to disneyland, i go to see them and they play to a packed house! disney better not let them go.

    I can't see the golden horseshoe without the bill's

    Like we need another icecream/eat & run food place in the park. Isn't this just adding to the weight issue?

    I'm hoping for the same thing too. Billies are ok, but just ok.
    Golden Horseshoes needs it's dancin' girls again!!!

    Laughing Stock is pretty good too. I enjoy the entertainment
    out on the street of Frontierland. However, I would like to
    see a new set of skits for the Laughing Stock. And how about
    an old fashioned gunfight?!?!?

    Ice Cream in Golden Horseshoe? Not so sure about that.
    Sure didn't like when they switched out Cowboy grub for
    Deep Fried crap. They should go back to good ol' american
    hamburgers and chicken burgers.

    I would love to see some "Riders in the sky" they are the group wwhod did the music for ToyStory. I think some Good ole Opry music would be great for this place with show time on the hour every hour. Not just a few shows like they have it now.

    The Billies where good but nothing to right home about.

    i think it depends which billies you get. the elvis billies were always funnier, IMO. i would hate to see them gone forever, though.
