    They didnt cut anything from the main lotus (from final conception). The concept art just showed a different effect than what they went with.

    Some complaints of the show itself. The shamans started by playing a fictional instrument announcing each side. It was way obvious they were not playing it since it was weird hearing the music from the speakers and zero from the actual instrument. Too much pantomime for such an authentic show.

    You mean prop instruments. I mean it's not like flutes and horns don't exist. They at least seem to actually drum to the beat of the show music though and really live percussion is probably the most you can expect out of a show with pre-recorded music.

    If it bothers you that much, should I tell you that the Country Bears can't play their instruments either?

    I imagine we won't get a new CD until Happily Ever After replaces Wishes at the earliest.

    The quietly pulled European and Far East CD was Rivers and Awakenings specific.

    Really surprised that they didn't just make the soundtrack available as a digital download via iTunes.

    Just a meme expressing my excitement that the show is finally open. We made it through the long waiting period, I'm so happy I could cry :D

    I'm likely going tonight. I really enjoyed the show last weekend... even if it does have some shortcomings. It fits the vibe of the park incredibly well.

    So... is the show tonight any different from the version they had earlier this week? Maybe shorter? Maybe longer?
