This is what it looked like the entire week we were there a few years ago from our balcony in the Grand Californian.

I know the current rumor is Epcot Forever for summer.... but with all the hardware for Harmonious in place, you'd think that they could launch the show by July 4th (3 months from now) if they wanted to.

I wonder how much work will need to go into bringing Epcot Forever back? Simple matter of one or two overnight rehearsals?

Oh, I wasn't making any judgement on the barges and such, just that @marni1971 had mentioned that he hadn't seen it up like that while he was there. Sorry for the thread drift.

Temporary vs intent though.

The platform is kept up for time to time for numerous reasons (This is known). It's not kept up all the time though as a standard procedure. It did have an extended period where I believe one of the three sections had a failure that prevented them from fully cycling the platform as normal. Took awhile, but they fixed it.

I don't think he's was doubting you saw it up for periods of time- just his indirect way of pointing out the difference between service-issue and 'this is what we aimed for' :)

Makes sense.

I honestly can't believe my (painfully sore) eyes.

Sitting here looking at this picture, I wonder:

1. Does it look better or worse in person?
2. Who in their right minds approved this?
3. Is there any way on God's green earth that this show could possibly be worth what it's done to the sightlines of the WS?
4. Regardless of the answer to #3 I revert back to #2

#1: Worse
#2: Someone without a clue
#3: Not likely

I'll say it looks better in person because our eyes are not a camera lens or static picture fixated on one subject. In person we take in more around us, tend to look away at the buildings, pathways, people and take in the sounds and smells around us. I found myself simply not looking at it.

Again, I get the vibes of ROL here where they ignore what is practical to create something unique, but they probably had a better way of doing similar. Then years into it they decide it's not worth it.

I think Disney will allow this show to run maybe 5 years max before coming to its senses and killing it off to clean up the views.

The bigger, the more complex, the more intricate and more expensive the greater the opportunity for some miniscule malfunction / minor break down to incapacitate the entire project.

Thanks for the 'first hand view' opinion. Will be seeing it in a few weeks, I know I will be too happy to be p*ssed about this at the time, but curious what I will think of it when I first see it person.

Fingers crossed that they deep six this visual catastrophe sooner rather than later. :rolleyes:
