Try going to DLP and seeing what they replaced Dreams with. Illuminations at DLP is awful and probably the worst Disney castle show ever. Gutted it's not leaving along with the 25th anniversary, I want Dreams backDon't want to start a whole thing in this thread...but on a whole I prefer Wishes. I think the projection and fireworks in Happily Ever After are amazing and I love the inclusion of "forgotten classics" like the Hunchback and Hercules, but Wishes struck an emotional chord with us every time and it stayed with us throughout the entire show. A lot of regulars in my crowd feel that Happily Ever After has peaks and valleys but the same people always felt that Wishes "had them at hello" and it never let go until the finale. Just some different opinions.
In regards to Illuminations...only time will tell, but I'm eager to see what they come up with. I hope it still packs the wallop that Reflections of Earth has been hitting me with for years now. I never tire of it.
