Your Pollmaster is at it again, well sort of. This one isn't so much about posting another poll, but more so of a question I have for my local So Cali Micechatters who have been to the park lately to see the new fireworks.
This evening, Becka and I went just to Disneyland, didn't go into DCA, with the sole purpose of seeing the new fireworks. We walked up to the center between the Partner's statue and the castle to look for seating. We were going to eat first, and with plenty of seating still left, we decided to go into Tomorrowland to eat at the Pizza Port. On the way there, right at the entrance to Tomorrowland, we ran into Micechat's own & beloved Penguinsoda, with her daughter and a friend. Who, we had absolutely no idea, was going to be there. And Penguin hasn't gotten to see Aiden yet, and has been wanting to see him, so she got an unexpected treat. We stopped to chat for a few, but since Aiden was getting fussy and hungry, we went to eat and then came back & hung out with Penguin. Leading up to showtime, they were making announcements, once again, that the show might be cancelled due to high winds. Fortunately, the show went on as scheduled, but unfortunately, without Dumbo. During his Baby Mine song, when he's supposed to be flying around, he was nowhere to be seen.
But now onto the point of this thread. I have to say, that as a die hard Disney fan, I am not impressed with the current fireworks. To me, and Becka agreed, the show was just like any normal or typical fireworks show. And probably would've felt the same even if Dumbo did take flight.
Don't get me wrong, and I took a peek at McGoofy's thread with the video of him flying around, and yes, it looks rather cute and bittersweet with a classic Disney song that is sure to tug at anyone's heartstrings. But it doesn't take away from the point that it just feels like another typical fireworks show that they've done in the past. Only it has a different song, different singer, and the projections on the castle. Other than those, it's just ordinary.
Maybe it's because after seeing Remember....., which felt more interactive with the Haunted Mansion and Pirates sequences, and this one lacking all of that, maybe that's the reason it feels too ordinary. Maybe going into these, with me and probably with many other fans, the expectations were set high since seeing the Remember show. But I am a bit disappointed, and just not impressed with the new show. So far, Summer Nightastic just not living up to the hype. Fireworks are lacking, we have a broken dragon, and the Electrical Parade, still kinda looks like the same parade, just with brighter and newer looking lightbulbs. They should add more floats to that parade to liven it up more.
But anyways, let us all know what you all think of the new show. Love em, Like em, or just don't like em. Place your votes.
