Animation Tour Turns to Mushu!
Disney-MGM Studios is slated to refresh its popular animation tour.
The Magic of Disney Animation will close on Tuesday and reopen in late
November. One of the biggest changes: Disney is shelving the opening
movie starring Robin Williams and former CBS newsman Walter Cronkite. When
the tour reopens, it will begin with a presentation by a live actor who will
interact with Mushu, the dragon from Disney's 1998 animated feature Mulan.
