  • [Question] Any chance of the Sword in the Stone ceremony coming back?

    The current Disney parks ad campaign has a kid pulling the sword featured pretty prominently on tv, so was wondering if there's a little foreshadowing of it making a comeback? Personally I really hope so, as it was always one of my favorite things they did there, and when they stopped kind of makes the Sword in the Stone depressing in a way. With the ceremony someone gets to be king or queen for the day..and now it just sits there w/the inscription now implying no king will ever come if you look too deep into it.

    ORDDU: It would be wonderful if they did bring back the ceremony--if for no other reason than to take poor Merlin off the unemployment line.

    ORWEN: I heard that Walt Disney World will be bringing Merlin back sometime in 2012 but not for the Sword in the Stone Ceremony. Instead he's gonna' be in charge of some sort of scavenger hunt for the Magic Kingdom there.

    ORGOCH: Hmmm....then ol' Mim's not gonna' be too happy 'bout it. She cain't stand it when Merlin gits a paycheck while she don't!!

      It would be nice for it to return.

        I sure do miss Merlin as well. It was a great show.

        But I don't want to go among MAD people!

          Maybe after the lead controversy gets settled. I do miss it, though.

            I hope it returns. My husband saw the same ad and was wondering what/where it was. He's never seen it and would like to. I have but it was a very long time ago.

                  That show holds a lot of memories for me as a child. It's part of my "90's Disneyland nostalgia" period. Although it would be cool to see it return, (and I don't see why it couldn't, really) I just don't see it happening.

I've conjured your likeness up in my crystal ball many a time and what I saw when I did that convinced me you're much more of a hottie than you give yourself credit for!!! Why, I'd date you in a heartbeat if you were available.....you aren't available, are you???

                      I wonder if the Sword in the Stone might get incorporated into that scavenger hunt. Seems like a natural fit.

                        I just hope that if it ever comes back, Merlin does the first show dressed in a tropical shirt, shorts, and sunglasses, as if he'd just come back from Bermuda.

                          Nice.

                          So when did it go away? My daughter did it quite a few years ago, but I didn't know it was gone now. I guess I better start paying attention to these things huh?

                            I remember seeing it in 1999 and enjoying it quite a bit! Would love for it to come back. Surely the old sword still works in getting pulled out (well at least part way pulled out....never did go all the way out, did it?)

                              Knowing how Disney marketing has invaded the parks it will be themed to Tangled and it will be the frying pan in the stone ceremony...

                              I would love if it returned. One of my favorite memories of Disneyland are sitting in Fantasyland watching the ceremony and seeing the joy in the children's faces when the sword came out.
