Interesting Believe 2018

No opinion here, just questions,
How close are the fires to DLR? If this isn't under control soon, Might DL have to cut back on Believe until rain or firefighters get the upper hand? Let's remember that Orlando had a fire/drought problem right before HEA opened. It didn't effect HEA thank Goodness(might have affected SW AGS. ROE and Wishes were not I believe) but they were needing rain!
Not remotely close at all.

I hope this doesn't come across as insensitive (I have many family and friends that are firefighters) but have the DL fireworks ever actually caused a fire?

Okay after watching the video again, i firmly believe this is a test for Mickeys Mix. They want to see how the shows look in a b-mode during weekdays, and gauge audience reaction. I strongly feel that they are going to be designing shows now that run all year long, but have different pyro levels based on time of year.

Why do I think this? There is far more castle pyro used in the version on video then in the actual show, so they had to plan for it... and load it.

Came across this from this year’s Star Wars “Disneyland After Dark”.
This style could, in fact, be the new “weekday” normal.

I don't think this should be viewed as a bad thing. It's literally more bang (as an alternative to nothing) for your buck if you like going on weeknights.

Oh My Disney webisode about Believe.
Looks like there’s a mix between both regular and low level shows, but more skewed towards low level.
They are officially priming us.

Unless you go during the holiday season. That was previously a full show every night. So a take away.

Too Bad DL didn't have a B Fantasy In The Sky planned for last night, or put in the B Believe for NYE last night. At least they played Fantasy's music which I thought was a nice touch instead of the Cancel Announcement right after the Countdown.

Knott's did its full 12 minute show last night. Pretty impressive.

Really??? Were the winds that different at Knotts? DCA did their show too but it was low pyro. DL did warn us over Twitter that Fantasy In The Sky might be canceled.

I would call Knott's Medium Level. The winds were western (test shot at 11:30 PM), and the temporary area used is the Western Parking Lot. so fallout wasn't an issue. (Employees were not allowed access to their parking area during the show).

Not the best video, but will throw it up later tonight.

OK, Folks, this amateur video taken on a cell phone was done at the last minute, but you do get a feel for what was offered...

I loved the swaying Palm Trees in the forefront.

At least a float didn't catch on fire... What is worse? Santa falling off a broken float, or one that stops the parade and everyone decides to leave before they could restart the parade...

But glad Disney delivered tonight. But then once you load the shells, a lot easier to fire them off then trying to empty the shells with live rounds.
