So, from the concept art and EE videos, it looked like those arms would be a beautiful bright and shining gold with light beams bursting out. In this video the arms are barely noticeable! Why have them if you don't see them. :/

Now that the monstrousness of these things is so evident, is there any chance at all that those in charge might revisit the possibility of moving them in the daytime, or is that simply not doable at this point? While the show itself might well be spectacular, the visual damage done to the lagoon the rest of the time is simply unpardonable, especially with the fountains turned on. This Pixie Duster is horrified.

They are anchored in place. Sadly.

From the video:

"It has such a power that you would never expect out of a theme park show or experience."

Nice way to denigrate theme parks, Disney.

Haven't Disney theme parks strived for depth and meaning since "here age relives fond memories of the past, and youth may savor the challenge and promise of the future"? Not to mention, you know, EPCOT Center?
I'll have what the imagineers in the video are drinking.

At least for me, and I'd even be willing to bet that most people who watched RoE felt the "power that you would never expect out of a theme park show or experience" during Illuminations.

But I'm a tourist, so what do I know? 🤷‍♂️

It’s a lot of bluster from people who don’t have a clue what EPCOT Center was about. All the lines were likely written and/or approved by PR people, who also don’t have a clue what EPCOT Center was about. Most likely were born after the 94 “makeover”.

After watching that video, I’m not exactly expecting much “story” and a lot of movie IP tie-ins, but it’s not as though my expectations were high to begin with. Basically, HEA 2.0. The bar is set very low these days, so low one could trip on it, and sometimes TDO struggles to even reach that.

At the end of the day, Harm will be a huge success among millennials, which seems to be Disney’s target audience these days. It’ll be bright enough, loud enough, tacky enough, contain enough Coco, Frozen, and Moana, and short enough to satisfy their attention span.

As long as guests are going “Wow! Bright! Noise! Color! (Enter latest popular IP here)! Loud! Disney! Sounds! Instagram! Sparkle! Bang! (Enter latest popular IP here)! Magic! Shiny! Disney! Wow! Instagram! Wow! Disney!” within the first 1 1/2 - 2mins of the show, it will be a success.

The bar is lower than low.

Personally, sure, I'm looking forward to the new show, but I always come back to the fact that there will (likely) never be another Illuminations/ROE. And that's fine. One of the Disney nighttime spectaculars has to be the best of all time, the GOAT, whatever... and for those of us, that is/was/will be ROE.

So... very tempered expectations; I genuinely hope Harm has its own share of earned emotion and spectacle.

I'm mostly worried that once word gets out that the best viewing spot is directly in front of the Showcase Plaza area, folks are going to try to plunk down their chairs and what not at 4-5pm to secure a good viewing spot. That goes back to the well thought-out design on ROE: it was great from just about anywhere on the promenade; and there wasn't as much elbowing to find a good spot to watch the show. That new central ring really should be rotating.

Maybe my worries will be eclipsed once the actual show debuts. We'll have to see.

I think you got the wrong generation of people. Outside of that, I agree.

Nope, I meant millennials. Not much of a difference between them and children under 10.
That is hilarious! There is a noticeable gap in age here considering that millennials are born between 1981 to about 1996/7ish. At least I can speak for myself as a millennial by saying that I hope the new show is great and if I could have things my way, it would be without IPs. But I digress, and totally okay with learning to agree to disagree.
