Well, over the weekend I saw Fantasmic! for the first time in two or so years as well as for the first time since this offseason refurb. During the show, I noticed somethings that were different in the show that I don't remember from the Summer Nightastic version of the show a few years back:
- New moving (Oarsman) fountain heads that are similar to World of Color's fountains with the surrounding LED ring
- New pyrotechnic effects from the barges on the river (I don't remember there being this amount of pyro over the water)
- New LED moving head wash or "Search" lights on the banks
- Pyrotechnic "pinwheels" on the river (I believe they used to be on the Mark Twain
Can anyone confirm that these changes were over the most recent refurb that took place about a week ago? I haven't seen the show in a while so I don't know if these changes were for this season or some past year. As well, this was also my first time seeing Murphy since she debuted as the other times I have only seen Malefiecent in the tower or Bucky (the older dragon) and I must say I'm very impressed. Overall, I really appreciate the new changes to a show that is 20+ years old and was only intended to run for 3 or so years and I hope that they keep plussing it but I am curious as to when they made these changes.
