    Exclamation Aladdin the Musical... Closing Soon?

    hey everyone

    I just got back from an enjoyable vacation at Disneyland. On Monday, July 2, my sister and I rushed into DCA because we were dying to see Aladdin a second time on our vacation. We were planning on seeing the 4:05 show as it stated on our times guide for the week. However, upon arrival, the marquee stated that Aladdin is now showing only "Wednesday thru Sunday".

    What's with the change? I can understand them doing this during an off-season, but during the 4th of July week? We were a little disgruntled at this unexpected surprise and we can only wonder why the sudden change... is the show's closing in the near future?

    Sorry I don't have any pics of it but I'm sure others can go out and confirm it.

    The show has ALWAYS been dark on Monday and Tues. The cast works 5 days, with 2 days off, Monday and Tues are the slowest days.

    Re: Aladdin the Musical... Closing Soon?

    I don't think it's closing anytime soon. I love seeing Aladdin and think its one of the best shows in any of the parks. That being said, I'm sure it will close eventually. There was an older thread that indicated that the current cast is contracted through November '07. But I would also guess that the show would be easily extended into 2008. It still draws a pretty sizable crowd.

    There are a few rumors flying around about a replacement show--the most common one I've seen is for the Nemo musical from DAK to come over. But everything is probably just speculation at this point.

    Anyway, I'm sorry you didn't get a chance to see a show on one of the dark days. The cast does need some time off, but I certainly understand your frustration. I totally forgot that the show doesn't play on Mondays and Tuesdays too. Just for fun, here are some pics from the 6pm performance last Saturday.

    Jafar and Iago are a ton of fun to watch

    I love the Aladdin show and try to catch it as often as I can. I hope it stays for a while and doesn't go anywhere soon.

    Yea I think they should change the shows up every 1 or 2 years. I enjoy the Aladdin but I think they need a change of shows

    I'd be happy to see either a "Beauty And The Beast" or "Cinderella" musical. "Sleeping Beauty" would be great as well, but I think with it being incorporated into "Fantasmic!" that's enough of a nod to the film. And after all, we do have Aurora's castle!

    The show still has positive comments from guests and is not going anywhere for the next three years.

    Nemo is not coming to DCA, during Ed Griers last visit to WDW he saw the Nemo musical and eventhough he enjoyed it he felt it was not right for Anaheim.

    He has requested that the entertainment dvision come up with something that would better represent Anaheims entertainment division and fit better within the Hyperion.

    Meh. I wasn't ever that impressed with it. I'd like to see something else, or at least something better than rubber masks for the Genie clones. Maybe the timing was off in the performance I saw, but it just didn't make any sense to me. And a live orchestra would be nice.

    I was pretty impressed, definitely something to do once...but probably only once for me.

    I loved the show when we saw it last month, but if dca is anything like MGM, good luck in getting a new show. we have had beauty and the beast and the little mermaid for over 10 years now. they were past their prime a long time ago but nothing has changed. so good luck to you guys.

    DLR seems to get more consideration for updates than WDW generally. I'm not sure why.
