    That looks pretty empty, are all the paid parties like that?
    I'm only comparing the crowd to Wishes crowding since I've never been.

    I don't remember the interior lights on the upper floors flickering like that, but I was just trying to use "static" as a descriptor for those big flood lights or whatever they use for the big splashes of colors on the buildings.

    Indeed, after FW and second parade, folks with small children are mostly out of there.

    Also, the party nights are limited tickets. While they can seem crowded at times when everyone runs to the hub for the FW, it's definitely not packed-packed. Also, the party nights that happen earlier in the season often don't sell out and seem even way less crowded.

    It was noticeably less crowded in 2016 compared to 2015 for me (perhaps due to significant ticket price increases).

    They should make the MNSSHP lighting part of HEA. I assume the color changing hub lights will be used?

    I'm not entirely convinced that the MNSSHP lights were permanently installed.

    At last night's wishes the fireworks were different, some of the new fireworks were the small shells that Disneyland Ca uses but some other shells had some pretty nice effects but they still kept a few of the big shells.

    I've been watching Wishes on periscope and Streaming Disney the past few days since Wishes ends 1 MONTH from today! Yes, that means that HEA is 1 month away tomorrow!

    Anyway, I'm not sure I like the Wishes' Finale as of now. The only fan pyro (I think that's the right name) only comes at the very end of When You Wish... right before the Wishes theme ends the show. I assume we're having supply issues with fan pyro? Would be nice to restore the finale by May 11th! Would this spell any trouble going into HEA?

    I thought maybe they were being sneaky and putting in shell tests into wishes for HEA?

    So by that video, projectors have expanded to the structures on the side. That is wonderful! Wishes will be missed but I will keep a positive light for this new show that hopefully shows that Disney will still be the kings of entertainment/nighttime spectaculars.

    Pardon me if I am late to the party, but they are now selling t-shirts to commemorate the final showings of Wishes. They say something like "Farewell Fireworks 2017".

    Because why not profit off something that has been due for an update the entire decade....

    If you would pay for poop in the shape of mickey they would sell it to you.

    They cleaned up on the Osborne Lights final tour. I'm not shocked they would attempt the same for Wishes.

    Give it time before they create the "gross out" merchandise line of magical Disney poop!

    They are selling items (purses?) designed to resemble 90's vhs tapes, it has to be next.

    Happy Easter everyone. Hope you found all of my relatives.

    This seems to be their thing recently. Along with events, like the 13th hour event at DCA.

    I actually find it comforting in a way. They realize we exist. We're a percentage too small to base major decisions off of, and I understand and respect that (though I still think many of their decisons are stupid, long-term, for guests of all types) but we're a percentage too sizable to ignore.

    You best believe we played a role in the decision to amend the New Fantasyland plans, to keep our Tower of Terror, and... well, the list is short, but it exists, because we exist.

    There's a dose of WDWMAGIC pride!
