WDW welcome show

This week at Walt Disney World, demolition starts on a long-defunct Disney attraction, a fan favorite Magic Kingdom show could be returning next month, plus a new refurbishment is announced for next month. 

1. Demolition on Primeval Whirl begins

Though Primeval Whirl has not operated regularly since 2019, last year Disney confirmed that this ride would not reopen, and this week demolition and disassembly on this attraction began, with segments of track now visibly missing from this former attraction. As of right now, there are no plans to redevelop this area.

Though an official announcement has not been made, some eagle-eyed Disney fans have noticed that the Let the Magic Begin show, which has not been performed at the Magic Kingdom since March 2020, is now listing times once again on the official Walt Disney World calendar starting October 1, 2021. This show takes place 5 minutes before opening every day and features Mickey and friends welcoming guests to the park. 

3. Harmonious and Disney Enchantment to live stream in full ahead of official debut

Disney announced this week that they will be livestreaming preview performances of both the Harmonious and Disney Enchantment nighttime spectaculars in full ahead of their official debuts next week.
