    Thank you for your voice of reason.

    Univision offer English subtitles... And is one of the biggest networks in the world, and the 5th largest US network, over even, theCW.

    Why cry over it? It's a business venture to share the Disney Magic, globally. If you don't like it, don't go.

    I don't like HUGE crowds at Dland hence...I will not go for New Years. But enjoy myself when I go any other day of the year.

    It is what it is....

    Well...it sucks but it sounds like Disney is putting this up for other reason then to block the view for people...and like other's have said just find another spot....Small World and The Rivers of America both are good viewing area's too

    Not only is Univision sharing the Disney Magic globally, it's sharing it locally too. There's a big reason Disney is giving Univision such prime real estate to film the park.

    How are the screens different from the Univision stage though? Both block the view of the castle and both are set up well in advance giving guests enough time to find a good spot. Why complain about one post-show and not the other. You have notice of where the good views are well before the show.

    Also Univision allows exponentially more people to view the show than the few in-park guests they block.
    Disneyland Wooooh!

    If your mocking my comment, read carefully and you'll see I did not say the "stage" is 2 stories, the "booth" is 2 stories behind the partners statue. So in the photo you provided, it would be behind who ever took that picture, not in front.

    Are either of you visiting the park tonight for NYE? If not, I feel this is an unfair criticism to the 1000's of people who have traveled far and wide to the park today having no idea that this large structure will be there creating an even more difficult task of getting a view of the castle while ringing in the new year. To some its even a yearly tradition. And the booth will most likely have a rope margin taking even more space. So I understand that people get to watch it home, but for the people who actually made the trip to be there, its made their NYE plan that much more difficult. I don't think people who actually went will be grateful Univision set up shop smack dab in the hub.

    There was nothing like watching the count down from Sleeping Beauty Castle bridge and this is no longer possible. Sure its not the end of the world and you can watch the fireworks from the parking lot, but the out cry is it used to be better. A lot of things used to be better to some of us and seeing the change effects a lot of us.

    Would this thread have been made if ABC was there instead of Univision?

    Life has upsets, can't make everyone happy all of the time, no matter what they do, someone will not like it.

    Re: Univision ruins New Years for the second year in a row?

    While I agree complaining has gotten out of hand, I hae to say I would be irritated with a stage blocking a major viewing opportunity for "special occasion" fireworks.

    If they had complained about it being crowded, that's one thing. That's expected. However, to have a temporary structure like that is just wrong.

    I have never been there during NYE or any other major holiday, so I'm only basing this off of how I imagine I would feel. Hopefully everyone still has a magical celebration tonight!!

    Thank you to Poisonedapples for my awesome signature!

    Anyone know if this is streaming online anywhere? Here in Indiana, we don't get Univision...
