Walt Disney One Man’s Dream and Voyage of the Little Mermaid may be going away soon

Walt Disney One Man's Dream and Voyage of the Little Mermaid closing at Hollywood Studios

Rumors continue to swirl about Hollywood Studios that Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream and Voyage of the Little Mermaid could be closing in late September, 2015.  Speculation says that the final date could be September 27.  The exhibits and displays within the Walt Disney: One Man’s Dream pre-show are said to be moving elsewhere in Disney World.  Ariel will continue to be available to meet and greet at the Magic Kingdom and you can experience the Under the Sea ride as well.

This leaves me wondering what will happen to Mike and Sulley, Phineas and Ferb and Lightning McQueen and Mater in the coming months?  Mike and Sulley appear to be right in the path of destruction within the park.  When will Lights, Motors, Action be shuttered as well?

This is just speculation at this time, as Disney hasn’t officially announced this.  Rumors point to this being another portion of the park that will be removed for the likely Toy Story expansion and eventual Star Wars expansion. Rumors are also pointing to renaming the park again to Disney Hollywood Adventure.

The map below would be a view of the park, if these rumors come true.  We already know Mickey is moving to Disney Junior area in August.  The only attractions that would remain on the West side of the park would be Toy Story Midway Mania (which is being expanded for capacity) and the Green Army Men, Buzz n Woody meet and greet.

  1. Nooooooooooo! This is awful! The voyage of the little mermaid has been a favorite since I was a little kid! I feel like the studios name sounds better especially because the park is supposed to be Hollywood and film themed. Adventure sounds like something universal would do. This is so sad.

  2. We love HS, just left two weeks ago, we were able to Draw for the last time, we were sad that we didn’t see more street performers, we waited to see them the best

  3. noooooo! So sad. At this point, it would be better for them to just close the entire park and get the upgrades done that much faster. If it’s going to take them 5 YEARS to do it because they can only work around guests going to the very few things left…then just close it all and get it done in a year or two instead. The lines for the few remaining rides are already ridiculous….keep closing more and those lines just get bigger. Not worth the travel time to come over for the 3 FP that you might be able to get and then have to go to another park. I’m not sure I get their reasoning in leaving it open with so little to do.

    • No, more like Toy Story Land from DLP and HKDL combined with new Star Wars stuff. Should be very different than California Adventure. They are looking to get away from Studios because it isn’t a working Studio any longer.

  4. I was thinking the same. HS has already become a 1/2 day park. Any more closings and we’ll have to just skip it. Luckily we are AP I feel sorry for those who pay to go to the park without park hopper. What in the world will they do all day??

  5. Wow. With so much gone, am I right to assume that a young family can do everything in one day without rushing?

    Disney Jr. Live!
    Beauty & Beast play
    Toy Story Mania
    Great Movie Ride
    Muppet Vision
    Star Tours
    Frozen Sing-along
    Indy stunt show

    Meet characters
    Jedi Academy

  6. Why would I go to a park that has practically nothing left? Pretty soon there will only be Stars Wars and a large Toy Story Mania queue. Not worth even going.

  7. I’m sure the new stuff will be great, it’s just going to be a bit of a drought until the new attractions begin opening. Wondering how long it’s going to take us to visit DHS in September? Currently have early morning FP + Fantasmic Dining Pkg. Might be a swimming afternoon.

  8. Right now I currently have a fastpass for Voyage of the Little Mermaid On Monday 9/28. I will let you know if that magically disappears
