You can see the caption of the photo says,
“The Voyage of the Little Mermaid is reportedly closed for good”
This rumor has been alive for while inside the Disney fan community as the stage show has seen little updates during its run. The rumor is picking up speed again however as Disney and the Actors’ Equity Union have struggled to see eye to eye on how to proceed safely with bringing the actors back to work at the theme parks. The removal of signage for Voyage of The Little Mermaid does little to reassure fans of the show’s footing.
Currently, on the My Disney Experience app, the stage show is listed as “Temporarily Unavailable”
Add the removal of the sign, the back and forth discussion with Disney and Actors’ Equity Union, and the replacement of the popular ‘Beauty and the Beast’ stage show, and things seem very uncertain for stage shows at Disney’s Hollywood Studios in the future.
As we here at Inside the Magic are fond of the stage shows we do hope to see them return in the future, however, we do understand that the constant nature of the Disney parks is changing. We will continue to monitor this story closely and keep you updated with more information as it comes! Stay tuned!
