Dave's Latest "Kill Refurb Marry": Just the Animal Kingdom

Okay, I am going to throw my two cents in on this edition of "Kill Marry Refurb" because live performances at Disney are a favorite of mine.  But since most Disney fanatics don't really want to hear what I have to say about the "other" Disney parks, I will keep it to the Animal Kingdom.  And in all honesty, this is pretty easy...

Kill:  So what live performance would we want to axe at the Animal Kingdom?  Say it together with me folks...DeVine!  Is there really another choice?

Refurb:  This one is another obvious one, but perhaps not for an obvious reason.  I give this to GiTar Dan.  Dan does a great job, and he was absolutely perfect for the task he was given, entertaining families waiting on the meet-and-greet lines at Camp Minnie-Mickey.  But with the Camp now closed, Dan is in need for an equally appropriate location.  He is terrific fun, and he needs a place to bring smiles to guests like he's been doing for years.

Marry:  One word - Wassalou!  Or if you only know them by their Disney name, than Burudika.  These guys are off-the-hook good.  And I mean like international-superstar-grammy-winners good.  They are virtuoso musicians and they lay down a groove like nobody's business.  They aren't just the best in Walt Disney World, you'd have a hard time finding a better collection of musicians anywhere. Next time you see them playing while on your way to Kilimanjaro Safari, STOP WALKING AND LISTEN!!  The darn ride can wait a few minutes for a touch of culture along with a giant portion of musical brilliance.  (And just so it doesn't sound as though Wassalou is the only great band, let me offer a giant Honorable Mention award to the Tam-Tam Drummers.  They will blow you away as well)
