    Yeah, we've seen it a few times now. People walked out during the performance each time (and I can't blame them).

    Meh...

    Caught this on Friday. Wow, not good at all. Best scene/sequence by far is the "swimming" one. Too bad because the cast really gives it their all. Would probably only watch again if there was nothing to do and had to kill time for 20 min or to get out of the heat.

    I just saw the show yesterday, while becoming a pass holder as well, and found the show entertaining. Nobody left, everybody clapped and seemed to be having a great time. The actors did their jobs admirably, and I thought the musical style, fit for this total campfest. There really isn't any adult content, just innuendo that will fly over most kids heads anyway. Nothing is overtly "adult" and they do have a viewer discretion, so any adult that has a problem with it, well, it's their own fault for taking the kids in to see some good ol' musical camp fun in the vein of "Little Shop of Horrors." Just don't expect anything like the Menken-Ashman score.

    Remember, Dreams come true!... and mermaids are hot, even on Halloween.

    I saw it and think it is worth watching due to the excellent visuals and special effects. The writing is terrible and I hope USH gives it a good rewrite. I don't understand why someone would say this show isn't suitable for children. The innuendos are mild, rare, and subtle. In fact, the show is better for young kids than adults because young kids can be fully engrossed in the visuals without being bother by the crappy lyrics.

    Today (Monday, August 31) the showtimes were 1:30, 3:30 and 5. Park operating hours were from 10 am to 6 pm.

    I finally watched this today. Quite a number of people walked out but I stayed until the end just to see how much worse it could get. I'd rather watch the Celebrate Street Party and that's saying a lot because I don't enjoy that either.

    The show had a lot more adult innuendo when it first opened... it's been "tamed" a bit since then. Is it perfect? No. You have to expect camp humor, and if you are prepared for that, it's enjoyable. It's nothing Disney would ever do, but I think that can be a good thing!
    Does anyone even bother with signatures anymore?
