I heard they were moving this show to Africa. Does anyone know if it's up and running again yet, and if not, when it will be? Planning to be there in May and would hate to miss this favorite attraction.

Not yet. Rumor is it returns sometime in May. No firm date yet.

It's definitely coming back. I have a solid "source" (I'm friends with one of the lead roles). I know for a fact that they are currently in rehearsals. The exact date has not been published yet, but late May/early June is the target time period for return.

My trip is in mid-May ... I sure hope it's up and running by then! I can't imagine going to WDW without seeing that show!

I meant to say it's definitely coming back in Africa. :)

My money is on a new version of the show along the lines of the performance at Disneyland Hong Kong
