While this isn't the biggest loss in Walt Disney World History (it's no closing Mr. Toad, Horizons, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, or the Adventurers Club), I'm sorry to see the kids go. Sure, no one planned a trip specifically to see them, they were the kind of additional surprise that delighted you when you first discovered them, and had you always on the lookout for them when you returned. Those are the kind of great little touches that can really add up and make a Disney vacation great.
The Dragon Legend Acrobats were remarkable little entertainers, and their incredible stunts never failed to put my jaw on the floor. Disney says that a different "culturally authentic" act will be taking their place. Here's hoping it's authentically entertaining too. The kids will be a tough act to follow.
