Just my opinion but I think we wouldn’t been way better off with just a 50th tag to HEA. The MS projections could have been added to HEA and likely will anyway if/when HEA returns. It is what it is. Can’t help but think the original plan was to keep HEA with a 50th tag then have a light parade, but then they axed a light parade and went with a HEA replacement.
The original 50th plan actually was to replacing HEA with park-focused nighttime spectacular, like RDCT, Celebrate! TDL, and Epcot Forever was, which contains past, present, and future attractions/shows at WDW theme parks and minimal IP appearance. A nighttime parade also being planned then.

We can't imagine what happens if the original plan goes ahead assume there was no pandemic then. We still have the original song "You Are the Magic" but instead of contemporary Disney animated films and villains like Onward, Frozen II, etc, the pre-pandemic plan of firework show will showcasing The Haunted Mansion, Country Bears, POTC (actually both are perfectly fit in villains section of DE), IASW, MSEP, Animal Kingdom rides, electrical water pageant, etc. where many out-of-state and international visitors don't know nostalgia why the ride is stil exist.

NOTE: It is not purposed, is planned (grammar mistake)

Not expecting this to actually happen but based on the new seasonal DAH events and the Christmas events including fireworks and a parade, what’s stopping them from coming up with a 50th DAH next year in the Spring or Summer which could include a separate park focused nighttime show and a nighttime parade? It would definitely sell for sure.

So are they live streaming the final Happily Ever After tonight along with Harmonious or are they only doing Harmonious?

Yeah I have been saying that for months. I could see an AH event from January to August at MK, making it 50th based.

I'm also hoping that Once Upon a Christmas Parade that will start running 4x per week in November will fully transition the cast members to FoF or (maybe a 50th themed parade) starting after the holidays.

That’s the interesting thing, isn’t it?

They aren’t live streaming the “finale” of the very popular HEA show, but chose to soft launch and stream Harmonious on the same night.

Sounds like Disney thought this one through a little bit?

Twinkle away until it Twinkles back…

I’m not actually sure this is true. I feel like people who travel across the ocean to visit Disney World typically know a little about Disney.

I’m a couple of states away from Florida and I see lots of Disney passholder and other Disney Park specific car magnets etc.

I think a good portion of the people filling the parks are nostalgic for the parks. Not Californians watching MSEP nostalgic... that gets into religious lol

So, some are saying tomorrow (Thursday) IS a preview for the public of DE? And then some are saying it’s not? Which is it? lol.

I'm super curious how anyone is able to stream in the parks with these big ending or debut shows. I can't even get Facebook to load once the hub gets busy and I can barely send a text message - on Verizon no less. What's the trick?

also: I did stop into the emporium to see if they had any HEA merch for sale. Nothing. I'm sure others already discussed this, but given MSEP and Wishes had final merch, I can only hope it's a sign the show will return in some form.

I think there is an element of the Wishes-->HEA progression that it was SO far advanced technically, it really captured people. I wonder if DE will be able to do the same.

No clue about WSL but People know MK's Hub is off limits if you want to stream. RTV1's signal was Brilliant last night!!! I believe they were in their usual HEA Stream Spot.
