Mickey's Mix Magic - New Firework Show 2019

I'm not sure exactly what you mean by the above, but it was said that the ROA would have the projections on the water screens (and also projections at "it's a small world"). I'm guessing on fireworks nights there will be the usual ROA fireworks along with the projections.
In my opinion, projections on the water screens are far less impressive then on main Street.

With fireworks, it's less important, but when the projections are the show, it's a huge difference.

I think that one show at WDW is pretty good called IDGAF.
Dude, that was a great show! I'm still amazed they were able to pull off some of those pyrotechnics underwater! Though maybe next time I could do without the 3-D goggles.
 
I get that, but there is nothing stopping them from utilising castle pyro, correct? Fantasmic can run nightly all year can't it?
Fantasmic can run nightly year-round. Castle pyro could run year-round. Castle fireworks require the closure of walkways and select attractions which increases expense of the show. That alone is why Castle pyro is unlikely.

Beyond Federal laws, the rules vary by city and state. Generally display fireworks have a special classification that requires a trained pyrotechnician and permit. Display fireworks are defined by the amount of flash powder and pyrotechnic composition. The low-level stuff in Fantasmic and off the Castle likely doesn't apply to Disneyland's aerial Fireworks display permits.

So I guess for me, it would be cool if they’d offer a “pyro lite” version on week days. Kind of like the MK projection shows.

Curious how a "lite" version that plays during the week will impact crowds.

Personally, I prefer quality over quantity. If you're going to only run half the show during the week, don't run it at all.

Imagine if World of Color turned off the fountains and only showed the mist screens.

You don't want the people who go Monday-Thursday to get an intentionally sub par show.

I’d say I feel the opposite. Hearing that they’re trying to offer the guest something during the week sounds far better than nothing. Wouldn’t call it half a show, but just a different version of the same show.

From what we're hearing, it's the same projections minus fireworks.

If that's not half a show, I dunno what is.

Unless fireworks are minimal during weekends. You’d still be watching a majority of it during the week. Either way it’s better than offering nothing at Disneyland.

Or how about just the bliss of Frontierland/ NOS a night when Fantasmic was down last year?
The older I get and the more I go to parks solo/with just my gf, the more I detest all nightly entertainment. Together Forever was such a travesty of a show. And with the sounds of this new dance party? Yeah...count me out.

Who is the target demo for these things anyway? If I was a day guest I wouldn’t want to spend 2-3 hours of my very expensive / crowded day to camp out for one of these shows to get a good spot. I’d imagine most APs are good after 1-2 viewings of any nighttime spectacular. Looks like the sweet spot is for tourists/ guests staying 2 nights or more.

No little Hatbox in the future? Surely they would enjoy the nighttime offerings even if papa doesn't....
