As much as I love it I was hoping it would end with the 50th anniversary. Great show but it was specifically for the 50th....or so I thought :o) Kinda like the Steve Martin movie. I LOVE that little film. But it was specifically for the 50th.....supposedly.
I love remember and could watch it over and over again, so I hope its stays around for a while. Although something new is nice every now and then, this is going to be a show that it hard to top. So unless they can replace it with a superior show which will be VERY difficult, I would rather keep the current fireworks.
Although I can't wait to see the new snow / ice effect on the castle in the holiday display this year.
I don't know about that. Fantasy in the Sky was Disneyland's fireworks spectacular for 42 consecutive years!
While the name remained the same, there were many subtle and not-so-subtle changes to that show throughout the years.
"JESUS!!! That's Cold!" -- Walt Disney's final words.
"You hear people talk about, 'I don't think Walt would like this,' or 'I don't think Walt would like that.' You have no idea what Walt would want! No clue whatsoever! Because the people that worked with him day in and day out didn't know what Walt wanted. Walt didn't know what he wanted 'til he wanted it."
-- Randy Thornton, Walt Disney Records
I saw the show Friday with my 8 year old son. It was his first time, and so I said, "Just wait, you're going to see Tinkerbell fly behind the castle."
She made her appearance, and my son said, "Daddy, there's a thingy holding her up." I was heartbroken. He is right. You can see the mechanism clearly.
IMHO Tinkerbell should go back to the old way she used to fly. It is not as impressive, but it is more realistic because you couldn't see anything holding her up (or if you did it wasn't as noticable as the mechanism is now)
Remember is a fantastic show. It has so much emotional appeal. I see no reason to change a show that has barely been around for 2 years and that Disney has invested so much time, money, and planning in.
What I would like to see however, is the "plussing," of the show - constantly adding new scenes, elements, etc. - rather than the creation of a totally new show.
