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)
