The 'Canadian Lumberjack Show' will debut at Epcot’s Canada Pavilion week beginning October 5 2014.

Produced by the Florida based Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, the new experience takes the place of Off Kilter as the Canada Pavilion’s live entertainment act.

According to the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show website, “The Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show is similar to an Old Time Lumberjack Show and a great family entertainment, matched by none. In the Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show or Timber Show, we use quality lumberjack competitors, also known as Timberjacks from around the world. The Paul Bunyan Lumberjacks are also the same lumberjacks you see on the Stihl Timber Sports Series, ESPN, and TNN. So if you are looking for a great Timber Show with real tough Lumberjacks also known as Ironjacks, The Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show, is the type of Old Time Lumberjack Show / FAMILY ENTERTAINMENT you want.”

Paul Bunyan Lumberjack Show has previously worked with Disney during private events, and brings over 28 years of performing experience.

Disney has not yet released any details or confirmed the new act.

Only some of the Off Kilter members perform in CHV. And seeing as some of them have gone on to other full-time jobs, I'm not even sure how many of them will be able to perform this holiday season.

Off Kilter plays at Holidays Around the World as the Canadian Holiday Voyageurs... I'm not seeing anything indicating that this change is anything more than the normal seasonal change.

Exactly, I'm not jumping for joy unless some of those very well informed folks with things around Epcot like @Alektronic or @articos chime in, I'm going to just assume it's a holiday hiatus until something concrete comes out.

I see all the glee, but outside of the Off Kilter site (now not available due to exceeding bandwidth) there is nothing I can find to confirm this. Has anybody got anything official cause without that hard to know whether to believe it.

As a Canadian, I found it very funny to sit back and see how we were portrayed. I was there in August with a friend, and they said "cheer like its a hockey game"..... So my friend and I cheered for the Toronto Maple Leafs for the blue team, and the Montreal Canadiens for the red team....... They weren't amused......

Was there an official announcement? I see times listed through November 24th, could they just be replaced during Holidays Around the World?
