    Somehow, I don't think this news will upset a lot of people.

    I am sorry for those who enjoyed it, or were looking forward to attending/competing on future trips. It was never my cup of tea, but I can remember a lot of people being excited about it.

    Remember when I mentioned this a few weeks back? The rumor was AIE would close earlier than January and be replaced by the Frozen sing along... Now we wait to see if the second part of the rumor is true...

    I actually enjoyed this when we saw the show....It was a little corny but enjoyable...BUT I can understand it closing. It's an attraction that is good for a one or two time visit, unless you know someone singing that day. Plus, I think the TV show is dying a slow death, which isn't helping to make the attraction popular.

    Disney will ride a trend into the ground. Next on the list is Frozen.

    I had a thought and wanted to know what people think. It's a stretch, but do you think there's any possibility that AIE could be changed to Rising Star? It is an ABC production. ?????

    Doubtful... But with Iger and his love of synergy (especially where it doesn't belong) you never know... I mean, after all, there is a rumor that they will be dropping the Osbourne name from the Christmas lights in DHS and rebrand it with Christmas Light Fight from ABC...

    The rumor is the Frozen sing-a-long will move into AIE...

    I know but I am one that kind of enjoyed it.
    It was a different show everytime which very few shows can say.
    it was very Hollywood and one of the only attractions that was live and unpredictable.
    I was looking forward to my gf seeing it.
    but with the lack of ratings for AI, it makes sense.
