I have just been informed that within 12 months, Legend of the Lion King will close, to be replaced with an all new 3D show, currently title "Mickey's PhilharMAGIC".
The story of the show will be based around Mickey Mouse taking us through a journey of the greatest Disney Music and Movies of all time.
The show will have extensive in-theater effects - in-theater props, fog and fibre-optics. FASTPASS will also be added to the show.
The show has apparently just received capital funding, so barring any late changes, it appears to be a definite go. Opening date is set for 2003.
