‘Lights, Motors, Action!’ Last Ride Set for Spring

15 Jan

Amid countless expansion announcements, Disney manages to subtly sneak in the closures.

The most recent officially dropped a couple of hours ago, as Lights, Motors, Action! will run its final show on April 2, 2016, according to the Disney Parks Blog.ย The show will run its shows normally until its closing date.

Lights, Motors, Action opened in May 2005 and gave Guests a behind-the-scenes look into how some of their favorite car chases were created. The show refurbished itself slightly to include characters like Mater the Tow Truck and Lightning McQueen from the Cars series.

The LMA area will be restructured into the massive, sprawling Star Wars Land, set to open within the next two years.

Can’t make it down to Hollywood Studios before April? That’s okay. I reposted the full show above.

Still no word as to what specifically will happen to the Indiana Jones Extreme Stunt Spectacular or Muppets 3-D Vision. My guess: Muppets will be relocated elsewhere, especially given the small rebirth in popularity the Muppets are experiencing. Indiana Jones? That could go either way. The show is a key staple at Studios, bringing in decent-sized crowds even in the off-season. However, the series’s popularity took a slight nosedive after the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
