According to sources familiar with the situation, 'A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas' has been canceled and will not be performed at Magic Kingdom this year, including during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party.

'A Totally Tomorrowland Christmas' opened at Magic Kingdom in 2009. The dance show featured holiday songs with a Tomorrowland twist and starred the cast of the Tomorrowland characters (Mike Wazowski, Buzz Lightyear, Stitch), Hailey Comet, and dancers. The show was performed at the Rockettower Plaza Stage (the former home to the very short-lived Stitch's Supersonic Celebration) and replaced the popular Mickey's 'Twas The Night Before Christmas.

This show was so classic Disney. I have memories of seeing this show in the early 2000s. And just saw it last year.

They had live entertainment but chose to get rid of it

Wouldn’t it be better to have live entertainment on the stage?

That stage needs to go

Hey, maybe they are using the money saved to pay for the trams starting up.

Update- Santa Stitch is definitely not returning to Tomorrowland. The show will not return. We shall if there’s a lame dance party or additional offering at that stage for MVMCP.

Yes it was.

I remember that. It was opening night, I think.

Who will ever catch Mikes Arm when it flys off?

Id rather they just put it in tomorrowland, really lean into the architecture of the buildings that are left, remove the rocks and put these back... would be a midcentury dream... heck even make a new world clock like disneyland had.

I’m not sure what all was damaged but the fact that Disneyland has announced extra live entertainment for the evenings shows that once they realized it would be down for a while they did add live entertainment in the area. They probably will have to go back to the drawing board and look closely at which effects and sequences they want to continue in that show. Was a pretty major accident that will need lots of review.

Put that in Epcot and hold dessert parties atop.

Nope, need that for a thematically appropriate for Tomorrowland Moana meet-n-greet.
