You are probably familiar with the popular parlor game, Kill Boff Marry, where given the choice between three people, you must decide which you’d murder, sleep with and spend the rest of your life with.
Estelle from This Happy Place Blog and I decided to transform the game into a WDW-themed version called Kill Refurb Marry. Our little game grew in popularity, and a few months ago, we decided to add a little Blog Hop action to the game so we can all link up!
This is the fifth Kill Refurb Marry Blog Hop! I hope lots of Disney bloggers will join in the fun. You can check out their links on the Kill Refurb Marry homepage.
This month, we’re ranking Live Performances in the Parks.
Kill: Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage
Don’t get me wrong: I love Beauty and the Beast. (Remember when it was re-released in the theatres and I geeked out?) But this show is just so tired. It’s been running every day since 1992, and since then it’s only been updated once (and even that was more than 10 years ago). That’s a crazy long time. And since 1992, so many amazing Disney movies have come out that would do well in the 1,500-seat Theater of the Stars. Like Tangled. And Tangled. Or even Newsies.
Refurb: The Main Street Trolley Show
This one was really hard for me because I love many of the live shows in the Parks … and the ones that I don’t love, I just skip. Even if I had strong feelings about a particular performance, I don’t think I’d have any ideas about how, exactly, to refurb it because by their very nature, live performances are something you can walk away from. However, the Trolley Show is one that I love very much even though I think it needs a little tweak. And by tweak, I mean: more performances! More songs! More different hours throughout the day! More CLANG CLANG CLANG!
Marry: Jeffrey, the Casey’s Corner Pianist
Last February, I was leaving the Magic Kingdom, and I happened to walk past Jeffrey, tickling the ivories. Well. He called me over and told me that my smile was lighting up the Park. (It really was: I had just received a call telling me I got a really great job, so I was alllll smiles.) And then he asked if I wanted to play piano with him. Of course I did! This isn’t the only time I’ve been invited to play a musical instrument at Disney World but it was the first, and it was a really special moment. In addition to my own magical moment, he adds such wonderful atmosphere to the Park and fits right in at Casey’s, so if they ever try to get rid of this awesome performance, I will protest fervently.
