    I see Fantasmic! fairly often and very rarely do I notice something major missing. It seems like often times the state of the show is totally exaggerated when it's usually something very minor.

    Well, how long have the eels been gone? I'd say that's a major thing missing, especially since it was a part of their revamp of the show. It's been incomplete this long and they're just letting it go. Again...

    I agree! I just wish those people were seeing the actual show. Those are the people I feel sorry for. The thousands of people who don't see the full show. I'm lucky enough to be able to go back.

    Eh...for me it was never a critical show effect so not going to worry about this one.

    ...As I see it

    They need to add something during either the Chernabog or Ursula sequence. Having such a long sequence being nothing but projections is a bit World of Color-ish and stinks if you don't have a good view of a water screen.

    But it's not a major thing missing. F & J did not provide anything necessary to the Ursula segment that would be missing without them. It was an added effect that just didn't work; they aren't "letting it go."

    In fact, F! has its own maintenance team that work around the clock updating and refurbing all elements of the show.

    Just because 1 element/effect was taken out, doesn't mean they are "letting it go."

    They need to bring back F & J at some point. That's actually one of my favorite parts of the show. I understand leaving them out for a while, but permanently removing them? No excuse for that, they have plenty of time to fix them.

    Re: Update on fantasmic Eels

    They may have all the time in the world, but time = money. Labor and materials to fix them was deemed too expensive.

    The show lasted quite a few years without them, so it's not a key part of the show.

    Stuff happens and sometimes it's better to focus time and money on other things that are much more important. It just didn't work out. Saying that Disney should never say that "it just didn't work out" wouldn't be the right business decision. Get rid of money pits that aren't needed.

    Re: Update on fantasmic Eels

    As much as I would like them back, keep in mind this show is done A LOT! Things will happen and there will be additions and subtractions. If your local, and cruise into the park and see it every night..yeah..you might really notice every detail. But for those of us who see it maybe once a year, if we're lucky enough to get a spot..it's more about enjoying the overall show.

    Bummer. Guess I will have to be fine with watching them on Youtube. I bet the show is just fine without them though. I can't wait to finally indulge in the dessert package.

    I would prefer they find a way to bring back the Ursula barge then to spend the money on the eels.

    They've worked flawlessly at Tokyo DisneySEA for Fantasmic.

    I'm confused as to why they're having trouble here.

    they are completely different.. the ones in Disneysea are HUGE.. they are like long barges. The scale of the waterway is so much smaller here.. the water craft are all smaller.

Pretty much the entire revamp of the show has been a failure. The croc came out on time, but the head and arms didn't work, the dragon showed up 3 months late and now the eels are being axed.
    I am glad that you are so knowledgeable as to why things get cut from the shows. But did you know that thing get cut for other reasons besides 'getting cheap'? Several of the issues you mention were cut for safety reasons, as well as they simply didn't work as they were intended, so other options are being looked at. That doesn't sound like 'cheapness' to me if they are spending additional money on R&D with the intentions of replacing things.
