Ohhhh, AS IS the new show at Disneyland Paris right now ! For me (concept & design professional) that show is a complete disaster. Again a potpourri of unrelated visuals, with NO coherent storytelling at all More : graphically NOT composed to become meaningfull on the castle “canvas” I cannot even call the projecions “fancy”. They are under level of everything I’ve seen in projection mapping shows, anywhere in Europe. They EVEN technically are mismatches every then and now..

I am excited about this Show, I hope it turns out the way it’s said to be and has all the kinds of Fireworks and the shapes such as the Smiley Face Fireworks and the Present shape fireworks like other Magic Kingdom shows. I am really excited about a 3.0 show

I hope they show a video on the kinds of fireworks they will be using and the kinds of shapes the fireworks will have in an upcoming update video.

It’s actually going to be an “interactive” attraction. Instead of fireworks all guests will get a sparkler to hold.

Not a chance. Disney is cutting EVERYTHING they can. And then more. And then stuffing more people into areas with less…and then cutting them more. Food qualities cheapening, service, you name it.

Cheap Cheap Disney. Fireworks mostly being replaced by movie projectors on the castle. How crappy will Disney make WDW before crowds begin to thin? They’re losing them already. Down 5% last year.
