has anyone seen the show during the weekdays? what was the reaction of people of the show with no fireworks?

Also how about the people that wait in the area between the end of mainstreet and the tomorrowland entrance where the projections of the small castle are hardly visible. Since there are no fireworks i would think that its quite disappointing

I think they needed to add the spotlights and lasers to Small World for this show.

The fireworks were stopped about halfway through the show apparently in last night's performance.. But regardless, first look at show's finale w/out the fireworks (carrying)!..

Ok, I haven't seen any of this in person, but..... I think I like this show better WITHOUT the fireworks. It's more in line with a "dance party" feel, which is presumably what they were going for. Fireworks aren't necessary and are distracting in this show. So.... don't put it in DL. I agree with whoever said that this would be better for Hollywood in DCA. Leave the castle for a classic, story-driven, sentimental Mickey tribute fireworks show. And in that case, leave the projections to a minimum.

Having said all that - I think my 7 year old would find this show fun. Her father and I, however, would be frantically searching for the earplugs and counting the minutes to its finale. Blgh.

wow hadn't seen Steve in a while and it looks like he lost a lot of weight, i would not have recognized him if i saw him in the street. He looks good
I was concerned that maybe he's sick...hopefully just some good old fashioned weight loss though. Hardly recognizable.

I was at Disneyland last night and they started the show 7 minutes early presumably to beat the rain I guess. 2 minutes into the show they stopped the fireworks and kept the projection show going. There were a couple drops of rain here and there at the time and that only lasted a couple of minutes.

Anyone know how long this is expected to run?

I'm visiting the resort with my roommates in early May- one of whom has never been to Disneyland. I'd hate for this to be the show he sees, but I'm guessing it will be.

I've seen it both with pyro and without.... I was actually pretty impressed and really enjoyed the music.. They blast snow during the shows opening and finale, project colorful lights on it to make it look like confetti.. super smart move.. festive and doesn't make a custodial mess.. Pyro was a nice touch but almost seemed to not be a priority to guests eyes.. most were focused on building projections/dancing w family and friends.. This is a cool addition but I hope its only here for a limited time..

i wish they had gone the extra step and added some of those inflatbles they used in the pixar show. the big Coco pupoets were a big hit with guests. seems like this show would have been a good time to use drones and just have them stay over the buildings

I watched the show last night. It wasn’t as bad as what I saw in the Youtube Video. It is better in person. The music isn’t great but I found myself bobbing my head up and down at times. The other problem I had that was that the Fireworks were behind the castle while the projections were on Main Street. I say that if you are not going to do projections on the castle, then don’t do fireworks. I also got to speak with the Lighting Director of the show during a backstage tour. He said that this show is one of the toughest shows he has done because of the different style. He also said that he is tired of Let it Go in shows. They are running out of ideas for what to show with Frozen. Overall the show isn’t great but it is fun to watch. He also said some stuff about Fantasmic which I will post in the appropriate thread.

IM going to hate saying this but i also saw the show yesterday and i have tobsay that its not as bad as i thought it was after seeing it on video.
Guests were actually having a good time and i was in a vantage point where i could see the crowds sort of dancing to the music.
the projections were fun and i did like what they dis with the lighting. the lasers and lights hitting the snow machines made it look like confetti and have it that extra party mood.
i do feel bad for the guests waiting in the hub though, not sure if you get the same vibe there. i didnt see projections on the castle. i would have thought the large new tarp would be used but it probably would not look good.

i did find it interesting the around the hub, they had all the guests off to the side and uaed the road as walkway for guests. it really helped the guest flow before the show started. not sure if once it starts they allow guests to fill in the street.

if not then the street would be a good place to do some projections.

overall guests seemed to enjoy it and cheered and clapped at end.

oh and the firework portion seemed much better than on videos. i heard that they added more fireworks from when it originally premiered.

Here's a crazy idea: Don't use it.

Disney has one of the deepest catalogues of well-known music on the planet. There's no reason that the same 6 songs from the same 6 movies need to be used in every single show. Variety is the spice of life, and all that.
