    My guess is they'll move it for the show. I think it's just to hide the projector.

    That seems like an awfully large and irregularly shaped prop to move every night.

    Doesn't it look like there are tracks that the boat can be recessed down towards the water?

    lol I must have missed that. I went out on a limb there myself. lol

    In fact every time I comment on construction I run the risk of not only making a fool of myself, but of having everyone question whether I'm human or maybe one of those prototype computer programs mimicking a human.

    I do hope they cover those pipes or track (whatever it is) up eventually.

    I hope they somehow manage to keep atleast some of Jane Ethridge Correa's vocals in the new show. I know rumors point to a new princess medley, and different "modern" soundtrack elements, which would unfortunately not be recorded using Jane's voice due to her passing a few years back, but it'd be nice to keep some of those amazing vocals from a great talent intact.

    Steve Davison posted on FB last night saying he was on night shift at ROA. Testing is happening.

    I mean, he is the head of Nighttime entertainment, so he typically ends up being at all the night testing for the Disneyland shows.

    I guess what's being asked is if he's involved in the development of the show itself. I believe(?) he was involved in the 2009 technical refresh.

    Hopefully he wasn't responsible for the dragon back then! Maybe he wasn't since he's still there! I guess I didn't realize that he was in charge of all DL's nighttime Entertainment. I thought he was just given specific projects like DL
    60, FOF, also DLP 25 I think?

    I mean, he is VP of parades and spectaculars, so he's kind of in charge of a lot of it to some extent. But he doesn't work on everything. I would assume he's involved in some level on everything, but shows like Remember, Magical, Paint the Night, Wishes, world of color, festival of fantasy, soundsational, Disneyland forever... those are all him and his team specifically, he works first hand on those. Typically he is the creative force behind them.

    Now Rivers of Light, the new fireworks at MK is a different team. I'm unsure if Steve gives approval for these shows or is completely uninvolved?

    Yes. Davison is in charge of parades and spectaculars worldwide. He has created shows for all six of the resorts.

    Yep! He also did all the current night time spectacles for Tokyo, Paris, Hong Kong, and Shanghai. I don't know if he's involved in the parades at Tokyo, but he did Shanghai's parade and Disneyland Paris, Hong Kong. TDS Fantasmic was him.

    I saw this and it made me think of the rumors of transforming pirate performers on the Columbia.

    Here we go! Not too many details yet but confirmation of some of the new scenes that were rumored

    Speaking of nighttime spectaculars, Fantasmic! will return to the Rivers of America this summer, enhanced with brand-new scenes and effects. Mickey Mouse will be featured in more scenes than ever before (you can never have too much Mickey, right?), and the show will highlight new moments from favorite films including Aladdin (starring everyone’s favorite Genie!), Rapunzel, The Lion King, and Pirates of the Caribbean.
