Less, actually. We got two new firework shows. And if we include Avengers Campus in their celebration, we should include GotG in ours. The drones do look cool, though. Clever for a park that uses very little pyro. If there were a park at WDW with the same pyro constraints, it would be a nice option.So pretty much the same as what the 50th is?
There’s a new Cast Compliment portal on the app. I think it shows what the company really thinks about the way it manages the company. While it allows guests to compliment a LOT easier than before, you ALSO can’t enter a name or description.
What’s the point?!
This seems to be a way to allow managers to compete in a sort of “house cup” rather than actually discover the personalities of their individual cast members. It dehumanizes the cast and allows the managers to crack a pixie-dust whip at under-“complimented” places.
This is a perversion and monitization of the sacredness of a Cast Compliment. I imagine that this is really going to plunge the Cast Members into the dregs.
How insidious that they release this on the 50th without an announcement.
I actually emailed Disney with a complaint about not being able to acknowledge individual CMs.Update -
"Beginning today, it will be easier than ever to recognize the people who make magic for you during your visit, as you can now compliment individual cast members – by their first name and hometown – as part of new enhancements to Mobile Cast Compliment."
"When we first launched the Mobile Cast Compliment feature in the app last year, guests could compliment a group of cast in specific areas. Now, you can send recognition to individual cast members, something we know our guests want. It’s simple, too. After guests choose a positive sentiment from a drop-down menu, they can enter the cast member’s first name, hometown and date of interaction. So, make sure to spell the cast member’s first name and hometown correctly so the cast member will be alerted, along with their leader, and they can receive their personalized recognition! And if you didn’t catch a name, that’s okay, you can still share a compliment about the location or area where your magic happened!
To access Mobile Cast Compliment, search “Cast Compliment” in the My Disney Experience mobile app (you can also conveniently find it in a few other parts of the app, too)."

Attractions Magazine just uploaded footage of Disneyland Paris' first look at their new anniversary fireworks show with drones.
And The Sensational Six's (seven counting Clarice) 30th Anniversary costumes.
They are in the park shops alsoSo I'm surprised nobody has posted about this here yet.....
ShopDisney.com is now selling medium sized reproductions of a few of the 'Golden Statues'.
There are several already up for sale, at $100 a pop.
Simba, Tinkerbell, Figment, and Woody are among those availible thus far.
I knew they would end up offering repros at some point....
A friend tipped me off last week, and I ordered one of the 'Golden' Figment statues.
I'm told the quality is decent, and these are heavy in weight.
We shall see....mine arrives in the mail later this week.
Thought I'd give a heads up for those interested.
