Can't confirm it but I am hearing that Disney suits have announced that Stitch's SuperSonic Party is set to close at the end of June.

Show of hands: Who's surprised?

Thought so.

Would it be closing to make way for a new show?

I believe this is a record for quickest closing of an attraction

It's not closing to make way for a new show. They may go back to the drawing board and work out something else but there is no immediate replacement plan.

It's about time and much needed. The attraction was an embarrassment and I'm glad Imagineers recognized the problem so early. Now time for them to find the budget for Fantasmic every night....

I'm sure whatever they replace it with will use the same infrastructure (stage, props, etc) that SSC used.

Well, at least they are waiting till I and my nephew get to see him this next week.

Apparently nobody thought about the average cooking time of a Disney Guest in the direct summer sun for this outdoor theater

Ignoring the show contents, this reminds me of the Snow Globe parade fiasco where they test the parades at night and in the beginning the snow globes had a/c. Problem was when they ran the parade in the lovely FL afternoon, the snow globes fogged up. oops.

I guess, "Best laid plans of the mice's men..." :D

Crazy. This was the shortest-lived attraction that I know of. The show was really lack-luster. I don't if it was the bad music choices, the go-go dancers, or the Power Ranger-like robots that made it worse. It seems like a waste of a performance space though.

I'm sure I'm going to get shot down for this, but I enjoyed the show.
I know it's tacky and kinda stupid but I enjoyed especially that dance in the end.
What can I say, I'm an Elvis and Stitch fan.
They could have made the show better though with better vocals, and a bit less tackyness.

I am very surprised that Disney is closing it this soon. Perhaps they just want to cut their losses and run.
Hopefully, they will use the space for something else.

I never watched the full show so I can't comment on it's quality (which is a bad sign), but I thought it's biggest problem was rooted in the fact that it didn't really look like an attraction. It was stuck kind of out in the middle of nowhere and if there were no characters out there or whatever it just looked like some little kiosk for advertising or something. It didn't give you the impression that it was something to keep an eye on. Thus the reason I had never really paid close enough attention to actually watch the show.

I never even saw it on the tube. I have the audio for it but I'm even afraid to listen to that. . .

My wife and I saw the show back when we made our last trip for SWW.

It was bad. Rather boring show, and the musical numbers were less than exciting to say the least.

It was just not worth sitting out in the heat for, and wouldn't be worth standing in line for if it were inside.

At least it's worth waiting in the heat for the parade or for DAWM at Magic Kingdom, but not this thing.

Every show must have some type of filler, but this thing was just entirely made up of it.

I get that they needed something to distract people from the fact that SM is closed, but this certainly wasn't it. They would have been better off adding more character appearances to the area. What about the Squeeze Toy Aliens from Toy Story, or Wall-E / EVE or even Pleakly or Gantu would be fine. A covered character meet and greet area for them would have been a better use of the space than that show.
