    It never appealed to me. I didn't go in once in all the years it was there. I don't think I know anyone who ever did either.

    We've never been either...never had even the slightest interest. Big news today is that they're extending the Frozen Summer until the end of the year and moving the Sing-a-long to the American Idol location.

    We've tried to track down that extension rumour and our TA hasn't been able to confirm it with Disney yet.

    Jolly good :D

    MGM has kind of lost its way for me, initially it was all about the 'magic' of Hollywood - loved all the Sound shows and the decent backlot tour, the animation studio when it was actually doing the next big film was somewher I could spend hours and hours - now it just seems to be a hotchpotch of rides with little or no cohesion - they need to get the 'theming ' back pretty sure they have a decent pool of their own films etc to draw on

    I just hate it when they close something with no announcement of what will replace it. The idea of an empty building saddens me. Although I have heard that the Frozen show may be going in there - the one that's currently running
