Depressed or autocorrect?
Lol like with Frozem Ever After. The tourist like almost anything Disney does, the show will be fine
That's a strange way to put it, but, yes, I am generally for things that please the "tourists" - the average guest, versus the enthusiast. It won't make me feel differently about it artistically, but if it indeed pleases guests more than what was there, then that is a good thing.
I'm genuinely curious what they rate it compared to Wishes, because when I put it through some litmus tests, I have a difficult time thinking that in terms of what the audience is looking for to cap their day at the MK. They want nostalgia and one last double-shot of "ah, Disney magic". I mean, even aside from the original music, I had a hard time recognizing a lot of the existing music. Aside from the clearly known stuff interspersed, a lot of it felt so random, like a little glimpse here and there of something I thought I knew. Going on the premise that I probably know more Disney music than the average guest, that is worrisome.
I think the best way to put it is to compare it to an ice cream sundae. Wishes was a triple-scoop, handmade, with real sugar, rich vanilla ice cream, on top of a soft, warm brownie, with streams of real hot fudge dripping down it, a sprinkling of those slow roasted nuts that taste like childhood, and a rich, creamy cap of real fresh whipped cream. HEE is more like a scoop and a half of vegan iced-coconut milk, served over a slightly crisp, gluten-free oatmeal cookie, sprinkled with dried couscous, dairy-free hot fudge "sauce", topped with non-dairy unsweetened "whipped topping".
An argument could certainly be made for the latter - but I honestly think that when people are on vacation, and are only having it once per year at the very end of their vacation...they want the full Monty.
Could your analogy be a little more hyperbolic? We get it you like Wishes better.
Well, I'm not sure there is a more realistic way to use an ice-cream sundae analogy...it was the "crispy gluten-free" cookie, wasn't it?
In any case, I was answering a question directly asked of me. My dissenting opinion shouldn't cause you any stress, and if you don't agree with what I am saying, it doesn't change how you feel. Or it shouldn't. If it does...well, I can't apologize for having a compelling argument.
I think the average guest will love it. Pop song and all.
I wouldn't call it a pop song...
No, but clearly that is why I should not type and walk with a massive crowd exiting the park at the same time.
Oh gosh how do you not recognize all the music?! If I played this for any of my friends who care less about Disney I assure you they'd probably get 90% to 100%....
Some people are just hard to please and/or very stubborn. Move along. Disney has a hit on their hands regardless.
For those who miss Wishes, here is a beautiful piece done by Tom Ameen.
Define irony: telling someone that they shouldn't be caused any stress by their dissenting opinion, while calling someone else's dissenting opinion a "fanboi BS notion."
As someone who was a HUGE fan of Wishes, I found HEA to be extremely enjoyable. The mix of characters used in it was much more diverse with nods to classic Disney as well as Pixar. I think it is an excellent show.
Again, HEA is earning fantastic guest reviews.
Enough with the absurd conjecture. One person's opinions on these boards do not negate the large-scale response.
And the "large-scale response" also doesn't negate "One person's opinions on these boards". This is not a vote.
Yes it does. The HEA haters need to realize they are a minority and just shut up
Woopsy, didn't realize this wasn't a forum with possibly opposing opinions. I guess we'll all slither away and hide then.
They're complaining in one place online. Just ignore them instead of taking it so personally.
The rest of us can simply continue enjoying the show.
Glad most people seem to be loving the new show. I was really fearful that the stubborn whiners would inject their poison into the discussion and affect the opinions of others (happens so often sadly), but it's awesome to see the almost universal positive reactions among regular guests and fans alike. It was a really cool project to have helped with, even if my contribution is extremely small.
Personally, I think this is the best night show I've seen besides Reflections of Earth! I didn't know if Remember would ever be dethroned in my book but HEA has done it. I didn't even think that would happen when I saw the makeup of the show and the new effects being toyed with but it came together about as well as I could imagine! A very worthy succesor to Wishes for sure!
Whoa woah WOAH.
Is called opinion.
