    I really do enjoy Wishes but I don't have that sentimental attachment to it. I don't really get attached to nighttime fireworks, at least right now.

    They're enjoyable but I'm looking forward to the replacement. I just remain cautions about the amount of fireworks involved. I don't want it to be a case of them looking to scale back. Sure the other stuff will be impressive and it looks like a great deal of effort is being put into the new show, but I'm still a tad cautious.

    I'm also hopeful whatever update/replacement Illuminations gets is worthy of it. It's a great show, but I still don't have that attachment to it.

    As fun as it is to hear about the projections and animation behind them, my fear is that with how they're really promoting these features that the fireworks won't be as big of a focal point as they currently are in Wishes. One would think they'd be trying to innovate with fireworks too, but considering they haven't promoted that at all, I'd expect things to be scaled back in terms of pyro.

    Unrelated but slightly related. This video comparison of the finale of Ignite Shanghai just popped up on YouTube.



    Putting aside the disappointing gradual reduction of pyro, the top left might give us a clue. Maybe Happily Ever After is poised to be the multipoint nighttime spectacular that Ignite Shanghai was supposed to be, but never was.

    I'm not liking the reduction of Pyro in SDL! I wonder who's thought that was, SDL or WDI?
    I was really disappointed when the top left didn't make SDL's opening, but the finale then was good enough I guess. I HOPE that wasn't WDI's thinking that will come to MK after HEA been open for awhile!
    Then again, with the dry spell continuing in FL, who knows what HEA willl look like on May 12th. We all know that HEA or MK doesn't need to get off on the wrong foot!

    I don't believe it was an issue of financial cost so much as it was environmental cost. (Noise pollution...air pollution...)

    With WDW and the "blessing of size" factor, I don't believe the big booms will be a problem.

    could be related to the contamination levels and the smoke that can pretty much blanket the entire place, and thus make the pyro harder to see?

    Anyone heard anything about HEA going dark 8/20-9/2? It's not on the schedule for those two weeks (and is on the schedule through 8/19 and from 9/3 on.

    So it's confirmed Now? I thought I saw a post 30-45 mins ago saying that time s might/should be added closer to summer? If it's true what's the reason? Upgrades? Low pyro supply? Might Wishes return or another show fill in? TDL might be able to get away with just OUAT in Aug but IDK if MK can!

    I believe Hallo starts before Sept 2nd this year, any affect on that?

    I heard they added more lighting, search lights... is that true?

    Also any idea what we can expect for the use of lasers? I'm assuming they will be shooting towards the castle from the MS buildings?

    For some reason, I just assumed they would make the music on some higher-caliber version of GarageBand. I was pleasantly surpised when I saw that they were using an actual orchestra of people playing actual instruments.

    As always, I'm excited for the show.

    The first video announcing HEA previewed an orchestral score for the show. Disney knows how beloved Wishes is, they weren't going to replace it with Kidz Bop.
