As of next Sunday, 6th February, some of the unique entertainment offerings found in Epcot will be no more.
The first is the Dragon Legend Acrobats described on the Disney site as:
“a 20-minute live show for Guests of all ages where young Chinese acrobats perform gravity-defying feats, is in the China Pavilion at Epcot theme park. Demonstrating the age-old art form of Chinese acrobatics, the young performers that make up Dragon Legend Acrobats are sure to amaze everyone in your family with their astounding feats of strength, endurance, flexibility and balance. Watch in awe as these graceful and skilled young acrobats fly through the air, dive through hoops, spin carpets on their feet, form human pyramids and contort their bodies in different shapes and sizes—all to the sounds of traditional Chinese music. The China Dragon Acrobats feature young performers—ages 10 to 18 years—from the Pu Yang Academy of Acrobatics in China.”
For the remainder of their time in Epcot you can catch them at 3.05, 4.15, 5.15, 6.15 and 7.15pm
The Dragon Ledgend Acrobats have been performing at the park for a number of years and it is sad to see their unique and different show leave. If you have never seen the show, below is a video taken by camrydriver of what you missed
The second show soon to leave the park is the Velcro sponsored exhibit “What’s Your Problem?” The show was described as
“a stage show at INNOVENTIONS at Epcot® at the Walt Disney World® Resort. There, you’ll learn a little about a company called Velcro USA Inc. and all the amazing products they make (Did you know that VELCRO® brand products are even used to make stuff like armor for tanks and artificial ski slopes?)
Are you hooked yet? Or are you a little loopy? Well, no matter how you feel there’s something fun to do here. You can name Froggy – the cool frog you may have received at SlapStick Studios. You can even discover how VELCRO® brand hook and loop fasteners can help you solve all kinds of problems.”
The show, located in Innoventions West has not had a huge following since it opened but has certainly provided guests with a great, interactive way of having some fun. There is no news on what will replace it but just in case you never got to see it, here is a video of part of the attraction shot by hrstevenson
Get there before your time runs out!
