I’ve been at Epcot each night to watch the broadway shows. The show has some nice moments. If the beginning was figment singing and it went into a high budget pyro display after one little spark the opening would be perfect 👌

The show definitely had more pyro in tonight, Saturday, than previous nights this week. The park was packed and the VP was there to introduce the broadway concert live stream. So who knows.
I was able to find a stream of the show last night. And yea, in some parts it seems like there was more pyro.
Like for example in the Tapestry of Nations segment, there was enough pyro to form the "halo" around the lagoon. After the cut, it was barely even a halo.
However nothing changed/added to the finale as it's still lackluster after more than half of its fireworks/pyro were cut, making it very bare... The finale was ok before from all the nice pyro, now it's just....ugh

At one point “late spring” but then they changed it to 2020 in general. Which could mean Fall now.
Which could mean winter. Which could mean next year. Which could mean late next year. Which could mean next fall. Then next winter. Until Harmonius finally debuts in 2037

For anyone who wanted it, the preshow and postshow music loops for EF have recently been uploaded to YouTube.
The music is fine. But it doesn't pack the same emotional whallop for me that the pre/post illuminations music did. Glad they dug out the pre illuminations music for New Years, hope they still cycle that in from time to time.

The music is the primary issue.

The music is pretty good imho. It’s the lack of pyro and the kid narrator that leaves it lacking for me.

If figment was singing and the beginning went into a truly impressive pyro display the opening would be one of my favorites ever. The “one little spark - lights up for you” moment gives me all the feels I want from a Disney fireworks show and then it doesn’t deliver the pyro to go with it. :-/

The biggest issue with the show is A Whole New World which is a music issue. They re-recorded with adult and child narrators and flipped the roles for many tracks unnecessarily (Tomorrow's Child sung by adults when it was originally sung by children and One Little Spark sung by children when it was originally sung by an adult). Add in the odd dialogue selections that hit on current versions of attractions as opposed to historic versions of attractions and it was all an auditory mess. (Now let's talk about YOUR future, Imagination works best when it's set free).

I'm not saying the fireworks were great either, but the audio was absolutely the issue for me.

I put something together to "fix" the audio and while it doesn't sync perfectly with the video, I think the show is substantially better with my selections:

So can we safely say EF will still be running the end of April? Not asking for myself by a family member who will be visiting and was excited to see EF 🙄why I don’t know lol.
