The Show Must Go On?

nempa 3-30-06 performer cutsAs Tokyo DisneySea is approaching its fifth birthday, there are plenty of changes coming to the Park which hasn't quite reached expectations in terms guest attendance and spending. According to a few Disney-fan message boards, MiceChat.com / LaughingPlace.com, one of the consequences is a reported pruning of the "Entertainment" department.

Sail Away will face staff cuts as well as losing all of its non-Japanese cast. Encore! will end by early July. Most of the Atmosphere positions at TDS will be eliminated. The new show replacing Porto Paradiso Water Carnival, Legend of Mythica, will have 70 fewer dancers than its predecessor. Over at TDL, the Tokyo Disneyland Band is losing 75% of its members. This Park has lost most of its Atmosphere performers over the years anyway. And last but not least, most Japanese dancers will get re-worked contracts and will face pay cuts. All is not well at the Resort.
