Lion King Show Closing for 6 Months starting early January

So much for reports of a seamless move to its new theater:

I don't understand this delay, especially for six full months, when they are building a new theater altogether and not refurbing the old one.

Could they be developing an entirely new show? I would think small tweeks to the current one wouldn't take six months to work out.

With that kind of time, I would expect a new show. It can't take that long to break in a new stage.

It might be that they want to start knowcking down the old building before the new one is ready. They really seem to be in a rush over the dumb Avatar project. See this from today about the Lion King and Camp Mickey-Minnnie:
