    Not that I recommend watching a video before seeing a show in person, especially with RoL, various sites have untamoered versions on Vimeo.

    I think the only way I would watch a video is if I was never going to see it in person.

    We have Tusker House reservations for the RoL dining package tonight. We are waiting to go into eat and I have to say that this park is as full as I have ever seen it this late in the afternoon. Makes me wonder if two nightly shows are slowly having an impact on crowd levels.

    I know it's been photographed to death, but feel I have to get some photos in now actually being here to see it. Not to mention the stalking, and the stalking of @prfctlyximprct 's Twitter stalking.

    Anyway, this theater is a thing of beauty.

    Both those pictures show an empty row near the front of the theater. Why is it empty? Because of the stone bench. People walking into the theater first see the wooden bench. And then when they see an empty stone bench (especially when everyone behind the empty bench put their feet on it), they think it's a low stone wall divider. Happens all the time. A section will be packed and a third row stone bench will be empty.

    But having others share your OPINION does not make it fact.

    That applies to what some will think of you when you post something like that.

    Anyway, this show was incredible. We were 7 rows up and almost at the middle (one section away from where the floats come out). The first thing I will say is that the floats are much bigger than I thought, and they come real close to stands.

    Also, the size of the water projections on the water screen were so clear. That was actually mesmerizing for me (and my daughter- she was blown away by this show).

    In short, I loved it! I think it is the most beautiful of the nighttime shows without a doubt. And the music is also my favorite. Well done Disney.

    Far from it lol but nice try. Check the previous messages, we have already established your fact argument.

    I think that's one of the biggest potential SQ issues for the show, even more so than Fant or WoC.

    Get a good night and it's great. Get a bad night and it's awful. Such a lot to hang on something that's not dependable.
