  • Once Aladdin Musical hits the chopping block... what are your ideas to fill its spot?

    What are your thoughts and ideas on what should replace the Aladdin Musical in the Hyperion theatre?

    Personally I think Hercules might make a potentially great musical though I don't really see it happening not sure the story has enough umph musically to be carried onto the stage.

    What are your ideas to fill entertainment in the 2000+ seat theatre at the end of HPB?

      That won't happen ... can you imagine how much they spent on a 2k seat theatre?

        Actually, on the Disney cruise I saw Hercules on the main stage and it was fantastic! I think I might like it better than the Aladdin one

            Sorry but Disneyland isn't just about the rides. A lot of us enjoy the shows and other attractions as much as the rides.

                  Hyperion is the most advanced theator in a disney theme park at this point I've heard

                  it is even more advanced then what they have at TDS right now (in theator equipment and in what they can do with the building I've heard)


                  when Alladin ends I hope they add on the lobby that WDI had worked on designing that never got built

                  that would add tons to the theme and feel of the land and make it seem more professional

                  after that I dunno what should go in there I'm sure entertainment has some ideas though (except right now Entertainment is supposed to be coming up with ideas for the Millionare building)

                    This would be better for Fantasyland than DCA, but I've always thought a 20 minute "Sleeping Beauty Ballet" adapted from the Tchaikovsy ballet via the Disney storyline and characters (as the music was used in the film), done entirely in ballet/pantomime, would be sublime... and a great classical dance primer for families/kids.

                    And with no dialogue, they won't have to insult us with politically correct, patronizing revisonism. They can focus on spectacle and beauty.

                      Much, much better idea than mine! I'd love to see it done in dance, but I doubt if most people would sit still for 20 minutes of beauty. Throw in some comic relief and you may have a winner!

                        Sadly, Hercules the Muse-ical! is hitting the chopping block on the Disney Magic. It's being replaced by a Cinderella show called Twice Charmed- An Original Twist on the Cinderella Story but it's final show will be on the April 9th Magic Cruise. On the April 16th cruise (I'm goin on this one! The first one without Hercules...) and the 23rd, we'll see Bumblesquats and on April 30th, guests can see Magician Mike Super. On May 7th guests will see the juggling team of Wilde and Hanes. Hercules will still be performed on the Disney Wonder. However, as with the Golden Mickeys, Twice Charmed might become so popular that it leaves the Wonder, so...

                          definitely a great idea.

                            Now that this is out inthe open - I bet we should expect it.

                              No way the Hyperion is quite a high-tech theatre... I heard that they brought in stage folks to design the theatre rather than Imagineers. (Not that the imagineers are inept but it helps to bring in folks specializing in theatre building to design a theatre)

                              I rememeber reading somewhere that the Hyperion could house up to THREE different full Aladdin-quality shows in the Hyperion at once. It needs an indoor lobby, restroom, and some better theming inside :: points to the painted screens on the balconies :: but the Hyperion is a strong point to DCA... :: points to the Wonderbra theatre in Fantasyland and shudders ::

                                I heard that they're bringing the Blue Man Group afterwards. But that's a rumor.
                                I do like the idea of a Hercules adpation though.

                                  Instead of having a musical show about a particular Disney animated movie, why not use the Hyperion for something totally original?

                                  Since the theatre is set in Hollywood, I think it should host an extravagantly lavish musical show. With high-energy dancing & singing. Along with awesome props and lots of colorful costume changes.

                                  It could have themes from Vaudeville to the Big Bands, to Hollywood & Broadway. And if anyone knows where I'm going with this, then you're absolutely right!

                                  Why not bring back an up-dated version of *Show Biz Is*...that Disneyland used to show in the 80's? That type of style would fit perfectly inside the Hyperion Theatre. I'm sure it would go over really well.

                                  My second choice would be an up-dated version of *Steps In Time* without the ridiculous fairy-Godmother/kids. That show has so much potential if they just did it right. I loved all the high-energy dancing/singing, it was great!

                                  And even tho I love Aladdin, I'm personally getting tired of shows based soley around Disney animated movies. It's OK (I guess) for Disneyland, but for DCA and the Hyperian, it needs something really different and unique. And no, the Blue Man Group does NOT count as original.

                                  But tell me, has anyone actually heard of Aladdin going away anytime soon? I have a feeling it will be gone by the end of the summer season or at some point this year...that's my PO.

                                      I have always wanted to see one of Disney's full length Broadway musicals housed there- like Beauty and the Beast or Lion King- just move the L.A. cast there. You could do two shows a day, three with double casting of principals, and I bet it would boost DCA's attendance since a park ticket is about what you would pay to see a show like that. I know the Hyperion can handle a show the size of BATB. Just a thought, but one I have had everytime I go to DCA.

                                        I love that idea, dramaqueen...

                                        But I really I think they should make a Pixar musical (Just kidding!).
