The version that people are criticizing is the show on the Disney cruise ship. I have no doubt that having it in the Hyperion (with John Lasseter looking over their shoulder), this will be a bigger and better version. I'm excited about the potential since its a good story and really in its own right it could be considered a Disney classic as well. I'm taking a very patient and optimistic wait-and-see approach.
I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.
By the way my shirt in the pic says "I like big sharks and I cannot lie"
I feel there are so many other things at DCA that need attention before a new show goes into the Hyperion. Its just simply not necessary right now, plus its another TOY STORY element added to the parks. *yuck*
If it is the same one as the cruise lines then NO! From the videos I have seen it is awful. I love Toy Story but that one is horrendous.
Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
If we are already on this blog, we are fans of Disney. As a fan of Disney, I will simply trust in the fact that they know how to provide good entertainment and will enjoy it for what it is. They haven't failed me yet, (except for maybe the house of the future that has no bathroom) Do people not go to the bathroom in the future?
I get why they're changing it but it still makes me very very sad.
- The show is always different because genie can be very topical without being out of character. (buzz talking about Palin, Twitter or gov wouldn't work)
- jasmines are so incredibly talented. People act as if American idol contestants are so amazing but you know what? Disney parks employ people who are just as beautiful and infinitely more TALENTED. They'll never get a chance to look like fools at the AMA's but they get to be appreciated for their pure talent
Toy Story Cons:
- popularity. Aladdin is always a full theater but The lines for toy story will be obnoxious. Toy story Mania is just nuts with lines.
-pixar love waning. I'm still a pixar gambit but to be honest this is getting out of hand.
-Pixar Park. I always felt they should retheme the entire DCA. Well they won't make it pixar park... Yet they're bringing in yet another pixar attraction?
-kids. I know, "think of the children" but I love Aladdin and so does my kid. Toy story is a great movie but will it skew too young?
- quality. This is the big one. If it's great I'll be fine. If not...we'll see.
So that's my opinion. I hope this news at least motivates someone to get a pro level recording of the show. Aladdin the musical is one of those things I want to remember forever (in HD)
