There’s a buzz of speculation flying around Disneyland Resort with reports suggesting that more entertainment cuts are on the horizon for Disney California Adventure. As we inch closer to the end of June, changes are seemingly inevitable. The anticipated closure of “Dr. Strange: Mysteries of the Mystic Arts” and the premature end of Club Pixar entertainment were the first signs of a significant shift. However, the rumored list of casualties has expanded to include other fan-favorites.

According to Disney California Adventure’s daily events calendar, several popular shows may be performing their last acts by June 29, 2024. Attractions like Avengers Assemble!, The Amazing Spider-Man!, Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!, Warriors of Wakanda: The Disciplines of the Dora Milaje, Operation: Playtime! – featuring the Green Army Patrol, and the jazzy vibes of Five & Dime might all be taking their final bow. By June 30, the calendar already reflects a sparser lineup, holding onto a few remnants like Dr. Strange and the Citizens of Buena Vista Street until later in July.

This shift impacts numerous acts, including the Five & Dime. This jazz quintet, along with its charismatic singer, Dime, have been regular fixtures on Buena Vista Street since the park’s extensive overhaul in 2012. It’s bittersweet, considering Five & Dime were recently celebrated as part of Disney’s “Celebrate Soulfully” for Black Music Month, only to be cut from the program before month’s end.

Over in Avengers Campus, fans enjoyed seeing Star-Lord and Gamora’s dance moves in Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Dance Off!. Even Mantis joined the fun in light of the “Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3” release. Meanwhile, the stunt-heavy Avengers Assemble! and the high-flying Spider-Man stuntronic in The Amazing Spider-Man! show brought excitement to every showtime. Warriors of Wakanda and Operation: Playtime! featuring the Green Army Patrol offered immersive and engaging performances, bringing the spirit of Marvel heroes and playful toy soldiers alive for audiences.

It’s worth noting that these changes come amid recent labor developments at Disneyland Resort. Last month, parade and character performers voted to unionize under Actors’ Equity, forming a group known as “Magic United,” which represents around 1,700 cast members. This move highlights a growing desire for better working conditions and could possibly be intertwined with the shifts in entertainment offerings.
