In 2011, Disneyland ruined 4th of July Fireworks for many guests by allowing Univision to construct a giant stage right in back of the Partners statue in front of the castle, which completely blocked off the prime fireworks viewing area that people get to the park at 5:00am to camp out for.
They did the exact same thing for New Years Eve 2011, but thankfully it was foggy which blocked out the fireworks from Univision's cameras.
People were furious over this. I know multiple people who complained to City Hall about it and were given either preferred seating for future fireworks or a Fantasmic! preferred seating for a future performance. But that kind of defeats the whole purpose of going there to see the special 4th of July or New Years Eve fireworks!
Now I wake up to a tweet from Disneyland announcing that people can tune in to Univision to see the New Years celebration live.
If this is true, and why would Disney make a false announcement on their official feed, it's proof that the resort ignores the complaints of guests and would rather have good PR instead of happy guests. If I see a giant stage in front of the castle with Univision cameras again today with prime viewing areas blocked off so their stupid hosts can fake dance in front of the castle, it'll be yet another reason why I likely won't be renewing my pass in 2013.
