Universally hated? That’s a bit much. 90+% are “satisfied”. That doesn’t mean they adore it, but they certainly don’t hate it. A minuscule minority hate it.I agree that the pressure to do *something* when everything else got canned surely had to do with this decision
However, I disagree that it's cynical that they would monetize it. When has Disney ever replaced a popular offering after 36 months of runtime? Heck, when have they replaced an unpopular offering that fast?
So my question is, when After Hours goes generic in January/February, are there simply no fireworks at all and the price is reduced?
Or do they continue the new tradition of fireworks in After Hours and use the show that is sitting on a hard drive with projections that are compatible with the current decorations and pyro that is compatible with the current infrastructure. To me, 1+1=2 in this scenario.
Neither of those were as negatively received as the decision to debut Disney Enchantment. What happens to the person/team/organization responsible for the universally hated show that replaced their flagship theme park's nighttime spectacular? A lot is on the line.
The other difference here is that HEA was meticulously planned, designed and built. DE was quite obviously a fast tracked show; they used the same exact rendition of the same exact song twice!
Most people like it. Most people like Harm, as well. Gasp. The surveys don’t ask about daytime tacos and the Stargate, however. People do like tacos, generally speaking, however. “de Pollo” is the most popular.
