Disney has today announced that Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show at Disney's Hollywood Studios will permanently close on April 2 2016.

The park is about to begin a major redevelopment, including the addition of Star Wars and Toy Story lands, and additional phases still to be announced.

From the Official Disney Parks Blog

"In order to bring our new lands to life, the first steps of the expansion will be happening soon. We wanted to let you know that Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show and nearby locations around Streets of America will be closing on April 2, 2016. The Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show attraction will continue its daily shows until the closing date."

The show opened in 2005 on the Streets of America, inspired by the popular Stunt Show Spectacular at Disneyland Paris. The high-octane stunt show features specially designed cars, motorcycles and jet skis, plus special effects.

Same reason why Avatar Land, Star Wars Land, and Toy Story Land are taking so long. And why Frozen Ever After took so long. What that reason is, I don't know.

I still want to know why that third TSMM track took so long!

Excellent. Now we can move on from breathlessly wondering why it's taking them so long to demolish LMA to more important things... ...like breathlessly wondering why it's taking them so long to start the SWL buildings. ;)

It's a flesh wound.

Nah, I think it's just a refurb. ;)

Yep I'd say LMA is permanently closed now.

Photo update as of Saturday, Sept 3. See photo above for stadium demolition status as of mid-August. Below photo was taken today, and nothing above ground level remains. Note the stadium's position relative to the Quonset hut and the large tree. (It rained mid-day today.)

Update: Just drove past and it's pretty much gone now. Little bit of concrete left at the bottom.

Im doing the best I can! My Magicband stopped working so I cant access the construction site now! :arghh:

Just to be clear, I'm talking about after construction has started, not the design process. The design process is slow and where most cuts happen. Some cuts can happen after construction has started, but I'd wager it's rare for them to be too major.

I disagree. They have 3 speeds...slow, slower and slowest...and at the same time...cut, cut and cut some more! :)
