There could be some shifting of schedules regarding RoE. More soon.
I was just today wondering what the latest on this was.
Could the transition come sooner since the Earth Globe doesn't open anymore for the finale? It has not opened on the latest ROE Streams that I've seen.
I can’t say more at the moment. It’ll all come clear in time. Probably. And there may be an interesting development.Could the transition come sooner since the Earth Globe doesn't open anymore for the finale? It has not opened on the latest ROE Streams that I've seen.
I wonder if Epcot has gotten any feedback about that?
The dates I gave for the new big nighttime show stand still. In addition to what Steve said above.Is there any truth to there being an "interim" show performing before the new version of IllumiNations debuts?
Possibly sooner. In part.So this is likely going to be something they trot out next year before the new rides at DHS, right?
Disneyland has done interim shows in the past as well.But, we got Jungle Book because of ROL Problems. Is Epcot having problems too? Granted not the same thing as we had a date for ROL and no date for this.
You can see just how far Disney's barge tech has come with Rivers of Light. It's jarring comparing the lotuses and the black mess of the barges in RoE. And yes, the Lotus barges were designed to be seen as part of the show while the RoE barges were not, but when they sit on the lake for the second half of the Park's operating hours each day they are quite visible. And distractingly utilitarian.Disneyland has done interim shows in the past as well.
It wouldn’t surprise me. Much of the ROE infrastructure may need refurbishment work. The MaxiBarges for example have been running for 30 years. If they are planning on being used for the new show I could see some significant work being necessary.
Maybe an interim show that relies on the specialty tag barges while the rest are refurbed and refitted.
