Several days ago, we learned about some cuts that Disney was making this fall to its entertainment division. And then more cuts were announced, and then even more. In an effort to keep up with everything that is either leaving or getting downsized in fall 2019 at Walt Disney World, we've compiled a list of all the cuts that have been announced so far, and will be updating this list as we hear more. 

1. Dino-Riffic Dance Party (Disney's Animal Kingdom)

Status: Extinct as of September 23, 2019

Though the Donald's Dino-Bash overlay at Walt Disney World will be sticking around for the foreseeable future, it looks like the daily Dino-Riffic Dance Party, which included character interactions with Chip and Dale in Dino suits has been discontinued as of September 23, 2019. 

 2. Mariachi Cobre Presents...The Story of Coco (Epcot)


Status: Extinct as of September 28, 2019

Even though over half a dozen cuts are coming to Disney this fall, it looks like even more entertainment is getting the axe, as Mariachi Cobre Presents....The Story of Coco, which features a Miguel puppet and a pair of Folklórico (traditional Mexican folk dance) dancers who perform to the music of the film, will be getting cut next week, with the show's last performance happening on Septmber 28th, Mariachi Cobre will continue to perform their standard set only, beginning on September 29th. 

3. JAMMitors (Epcot)


Status: Reduced performances starting September 29, 2019

Starting next week the JAMMitors, currently performing daily in Future World, will only perform Thursdays through Mondays.

4. Matsuriza (Epcot)
