Disney World is full of magic, wonder, and moments that will last for a lifetime.
Disney World is a popular tourist location, seeing thousands of guests daily. With this amount of traffic, attractions, shows, and more, locations tend to need repair over time. Walt Disney World Resort is known as “The Most Magical Place on Earth.”
Walt Disney World Resort is home to four theme parks: Magic Kingdom, EPCOT, Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and Disney’s Animal Kingdom. Each Disney park is no stranger to change. EPCOT is close to opening the all-new Journey of Water, Inspired by Moana. They also just built Guardians of the Galaxy: Cosmic Rewind, which is a thrill ride where guests may get a different song during every ride. Magic Kingdom also opened the newest attraction TRON Lightcycle/ Run in Tomorrowland.
At Disney’s Animal Kingdom, guests believe a popular attraction has been in need of an update for a while. Guests thought DinoLand was the next attraction location to close. However, It’s Tough to be a Bug! is the next project to close down at Disney’s Animal Kingdom.
Fans have been wondering what could go in Disney’s Animal Kingdom, and there have been plenty of ideas. Zootopia, Encanto, and Coco have all been mentioned as potential options to go into the Disney park. But, what will be replacing the beloved A Bug’s Life indoor theater show? Disney has recently shared that it will be none other than Zootopia. The world of Flik and Atta will make way for Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, and the vibrant city of Zootopia, promising an unforgettable experience for park guests.
While fans will miss It’s Tough to be a Bug! the exciting news over Zootopia taking over the place within the iconic Tree of Life, has cushioned some of the blow. The massive Tree of Life, which includes over 300 animal carvings, provides the perfect backdrop for this new immersive journey into the bustling metropolis of Zootopia.
Alicia Stella on X (formerly known as Twitter) posted that the show It’s Tough to be a Bug! had a huge error. Normally, when Flik is talking Hopper the Grasshopper comes out, who is the bad guy in the film and, instead, during this show Hopper did not pop up.
Is the animatronic Hopper always gone now from It’s Tough to Be a Bug, or just down today for my show?

What changes do you see happening coming to Disney World next? Fans are hopeful for more attractions or an Encanto land over in EPCOT or Magic Kingdom. Disney hinted at maybe something coming to Magic Kingdom and that they are making changes to the Country Bear Jamboree, but other than that, we haven’t heard any official confirmations as of yet.
While errors happen from time to time at Disney World since It’s Tough to be a Bug! is already planning to be replaced, is it worth Disney’s time to fix this attraction?
