  • *What A Dump* Is Gone!!

    I saw the 5:30 performance of Snow White on Friday, June 9th and to my delight, Disney decided to take out 2 lines from the show that had been originally there when the show first premired in February 2005.

    No longer does SW say, *what a dump* when she first opens the cottege door and sees the mess inside. And she doesn't say, *time out* after scolding the blue bird, but instead, she just says, *blue bird* and extends her arm to get away from the old hag woman.

    I, for one, am really happy that Disney realized this type of talk would never come from Snow White and that Walt Disney himself would never approve of it if he were still alive today.

    So kudos to Disney for making SW more true to her character. Even tho it's only 2 lines that have been dropped, it makes for a better show.

    And speaking of the show in more detail, they also changed the opening scene. I'm not sure why they did this, but they did. And the animal costumes are slightly different too, and I like 'em better!

    I'm happy the show is back, because it makes me realize that after Labor Day it'll be gone for good. And with any good luck, we'll finally have a Christmas stage show this holiday season, and then who knows what new summer stage show for next year! Yaaaaaaaaaa!!

    But can anyone tell me why they made Snow White an alto/belter instead of the high soprano she is in the movie? It makes no sense for the actress to speak in the sweet Snow White voice and then drop about two octaves to sing!

        When I saw the title to this thread I immediately thought of this place:

        DREAMLAND in Nara, Japan. Expected to close later this year after 45 years of blatent plagerism.

          I've read that this might be the last summer for the show and I'm so happy I'm going next month to catch it, that is if the show is on its last leg! ;o)

              Oh no!!! Maybe we need to start a
              "Save Nara Dreamland" campaign!

              I don't know if I could imagine a world
              without Nara Dreamland to laugh at!

                    We're getting :ot: but I googled the prices to get into Nara Dreamland...1300 yen to just get in, and 3800 to get in and have unlimited rides. Roughtly, that's $11.40 to get in and $33.34 to get in and have unlimited rides. Wow.


                    Back to the main show, I'm glad they took those lines out. I'm not a fan of the show anyway, but with these lines, it helps maintain consistency of the Snow White character.

                      How fitting that this atrocity goes away during DL's 50th. The real thing lives on! It's hard to believe that Japanese thing has been around this long and this is the first I've heard of it. :blink:

                      Back on topic: I think they found that Snow White is much easier to listen to when she doesn't have the high pitched 5 year old voice. Talk about nails on a chalkboard...

                        The thing that I don't understand about the Snow White show is how at one point SW says the queen controls the weather. Huh? Weird.

                          Sorry, maybe it's just me, but the OP came across as quite OTT. Lines such as 'Disney realized... that Walt Disney himself would never approve of it if he were still alive today'... Come on! Not everyone thinks an entire show is better because of two small lines. Yes, Snow White wouldn't say those lines usually - but I just feel sometimes there is a line between noticing something is gone and rejoicing about it like it is something to rejoice about. It's just two lines.

                            Yes, it's just two llines, but think about it this way... One of Disney's four keys is to uphold the "Show." Meaning that guests will have a seamless visit in a fantastic place with none of the outside world intruding. If those two little lines in the Snow White musical ruined the experience for so many people, then of course Disney would get rid of them after hearing what the guests had to say. Another example, I was there yesterday and I saw trash inside the Haunted Mansion, all along the track. It really wrecked the "show" for me. Even the smallest inconsistency with theme can ruin the show, which is why everyone works so hard to uphold that key.
                            Ask me to share your fantasies, dear, but don't ask me where tomorrow is
                            Don't ask me where to find happiness, though I know for sure where sorrow is

                              I'm confused. Can you explain what trash you're talking about here, or if by trash you mean the new portraits and all that stuff in the attic.
