Late last week, Disney's Hollywood Studios Entertainment sent internal notices that it will cancel Pixar Pals Countdown To Fun! & Disney Channel Rocks after April 6. Today, Disney has shed some light on the decision to cancel both shows.
In an internal memo, Disney offered these answers to if park guests inquire about either attraction's fate.
Disney’s Hollywood Studios continues to offer numerous other shows for Guests, including Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!, Lights, Motors, Action! Extreme Stunt Show, Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage and the newly updated Disney Junior – Live on Stage!.
Why are you doing this?
We regularly and carefully review the entertainment offerings in our parks and make adjustments as part of our normal course of business.
What will happen to the Cast Members in Pixar Pals and Disney Channel Rocks?
Most of the affected Cast Members will be moved to other locations. The cast of singers from Disney Channel Rocks will have opportunities to audition for other roles.
Is a new parade being developed for Disney’s Hollywood Studios?
Although we are not adding a new parade at this time, we are always evaluating and refining our offerings and considering new ideas to build upon Disney stories.
