^And my guess is it's not so much just a budget issue as to why Remember is going down earlier than expected. The other rumors involved newer management wanting to scale back fireworks shows so they don't shut down certain areas of the park, and are more easily seen by all areas within the park.
That very well may be the more important reason as to why things are changing out now.
And the bigger question is - does a show have to be as physically big as Remember to be a great fireworks show?
Should it not be more in the creativity involved, concepts, ideas, and execution that make a great production...?
or is it just size?
