More on the Return of Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular!

The return of Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular! is almost here! The show will run again at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on Sunday, December 19.

Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular is the oldest attraction at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. It wasn’t there on opening day in 1989, but debuted several months later.

Rumors have circulated for years that Indiana Jones Epic! Stunt Spectacular would be replaced, but fortunately, those rumors never had any truth to them.

We’re excited about the return of one of our favorites. Ana Williams has shared more information on Disney Parks Blog:

Are you ready for that edge-of-your-seat suspenseful feeling you’ve come to love at Disney’s Hollywood Studios? Well, get your hats and sense of adventure ready, because the SPECTACULAR return of Indiana Jones to Walt Disney World Resort is just days away … and I can’t wait!

Growing up, my favorite film was “Raiders of the Lost Ark” (I watched wearing the hat, whip and all!), so it’s no surprise that THIS cast member is just as thrilled as all of the cast and crew of “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” to welcome the iconic show home once again. The cast has been rehearsing for weeks—stretching, jumping and tumbling as they prepare for their epic return to the stage. One of my favorite parts of “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” is the tumbling sequence in the market … it may look simple to the audience, but it is truly a work of art as every somersault, handspring and backflip is skillfully choreographed with detail and precision.

While we’ve made a few adjustments to the show, the action-packed adventure of Indy and Marion remains the same. Come Dec. 19, guests will experience firsthand the art of stunt performance as we highlight the performers enacting iconic scenes from “Raiders of the Lost Ark,” now with a special moment to introduce the incredibly talented stunt team as the show gets underway.

This year has been an exciting time at Walt Disney World Resort as we continue to bring back more live entertainment experiences like “Beauty and the Beast – Live on Stage” and “Monsters Inc. Laugh Floor,” as well as adding new offerings such as “Disney KiteTails,” “Harmonious,” and “Disney Enchantment.” “Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular” originally debuted with the grand opening of the park in 1989, and its reopening is just the right way to celebrate the nostalgia of original-day attractions as part of the 50th Anniversary celebration of Walt Disney World Resort.

I am so ready to give the cast and crew an extra round of applause as we get an inside look at how those highly crafted dangerous leaps, deadly traps and epic battles are performed when this fan-favorite show reopens this Sunday! Get ready for the adventure to begin!

About Paula K

I grew up in Western Massachusetts. When I was nine my family went to Disneyland and I was hooked. I grew up, attended New England College in Henniker, NH and eventually moved to Virginia. I worked as a disc jockey, married and became a full time mom when our daughter was born. Fast forward several years. In 2010 we moved to Central Florida and my Disney obsession grew. I now work as a freelance writer and spend my spare time in the parks. Under the name Paula Brown I penned the novels Dream Wanderers and The Coffee Cruiser. I also am a co-author of Dining at Walt Disney World: The Definitive Guide. I'm obsessed with Star Wars, so this is a good time to live in Central Florida. I've been a vegetarian for well over a decade, a choice that my daughter eventually made as well. While my husband still hasn't joined us fully he has given up most meats except for seafood. I was relieved to find that vegetarian dining is not difficult at Walt Disney World.
