    Is anyone else disappointed by Goofy's Instant Concert ?

    Hi I just recently saw Goofy's Instant Concert and was really disappointed with it. Without all the lights and lasers it seems really underwhelming because usually Disney always captivates us. My kids even left before the show was done to do other rides. Anyone else feel this way? It is confusing to me because the Bellagio Fountains which function at daylight too never fail to captivate me and my family. Here is a video of Bellagio's singing in the rain daytime performance(srry about the sound the person who recorded this did not capture the sound well because in real life the sound is flawless

    compared to Gooby's instant concert

    Does anyone else feel this way ?!

    Goofy's show is supposed to be small.

    Small does not mean underwhelming. Isn't Goofy's instant Concert supposed to be like the Bellagio Fountains at daytime? Something to enjoy as you are just walking along that makes you stop but only briefly?

    If they took out Goofy and put in a better, less cartoony score it would be much better. But perhaps they did this on purpose so as not to detract from the grandeur of WOC.

    I think we're just conditioned to expect more out of those fountains. Thanks, World of Color.

    1) The video of Goofy's Instant Concert that you compare to the Bellagio fountains is 100% unfair, as it's a totally obstructed view. Without Goofy in the way the entire time, it's pretty impressive.
    2) Remember that in the video shown, the Bellagio fountains doing their thing in the day is pretty much their only trick. Instant Concert is designed to be a small cute show that puts on a somewhat wacky water show.
    3) The show isn't meant to be elegant and epic, it's meant to be goofy, like the character hosting it. It's comedy with dancing fountains.
    4) There's many other variations of the instant concert as well.

    I've heard people who have even disliked Cars Land to find this new show charming, so you gotta be in the minority here.

    I think it is a 100% fair comparison. Both are in broad daylight with sunny skies and both are from the center of there respective lagoons. I'm sorry I thought Goofy was part of the show so I thought it would be unfair not to include him in the video. I can get another video without Goofy but it really makes no difference in how impressive the show is. I don't see how Goofy makes the show less impressive but anyways... I'm confused by what you meen about the Bellagio fountains doing their thing in the day is pretty much their only trick because it is has thousands of lights that shine on the water at night. I didn't say I was the majority, everyone has different opinions and I am just stating that for me it was rather underwhelming compared to other water shows I have seen.


    I replaced the original video with a video that shows a direct view of the show... with sunny skies and high quality so you cannot complain about it being an "unfair comparison"

    It's not supposed to be overwhelming and spectacular. Just a simple, cute show.

    you have to at least prefer this small show with the fountains compared to the last daytime show that used the fountains (Disney Channel Rocks)

    the show is goofy, the announcer, and the fountains are the gag.

    I didn't even focus on the fountains for the show. It's like focusing on the hammer used in the gags in the cartoons themselves.

    This is a live performance using the fountains. Where something like the Bellagio IS the fountains.. and they use scale to make the impression. Belliago is more about scale and movement.. Goofy's show is a gag show.

    The purpose this show serves is to be something that people who are passing by stop and watch for a few minutes. It's not supposed to be something people line up for for hours to see.

    My wife and I were sitting on a bench in the area and the show came on while we were sitting there. I was quite satisfied with the show and felt that, even though it was just a simple comedy show, it added to the overall experience of our day. Not everything has to be jaw dropping amazing.

    Re: Is anyone else disappointed by Goofy's Instant Concert ?

    I think that you may be missing the point. The focus of the show is not on the fountains, but is on Goofy. The fountains are a prop for the character. Way back in the 1940's there was a series of cartoons featuring Goofy. Most of these were relatively low budget productions since the US was involved in World War II. The Disney Studios were actively involved in that effort. There was little manpower or supplies. The studios still put forth entertaining cartoons for the people at home.
    If you look at these cartoons, they are very simple by Disney standards. There is usually only a single animation in front of a simple flat background. Animation sequences were reused during the normal 7 or 8 minute duration.
    My guess is that you are not in the target demographic of the show, which seems to be aimed at Grandma & Grandpa who remember those cartoons either at the movies or on their Black & White Philco television. Remember that Goofy is in a tux & the water is bereft of any lighting.
    Not every attraction or show is aimed at every guest. There are attractions which terrify some individuals, others which will bore some people to tears. There is a portion of the guests who are completely underwhelmed with the Mad T Party & its previous incarnations.

    If you were to zip on over to Youtube, watch a number of those old cartoons from the 40's, & then, when you are next at the park, watch the Instant Concert again & focus on Goofy. You might see what the intention of the show actually is. It is a short charming tribute to another place in time.
