Just saw Fantasmic! last night. I loved it as always, (yes Disneyland's is much better, but that's for another thread). I haven't seen it since Christmas.
A few minutes before the show, some fireworks were visible behind, and to the left of the stage, most hidden by trees, but some high enough/bright enough to be seen through and above the trees. It was definitely close. Definitely not part of the show, the show hadn't even started yet. Does anyone know what these fireworks are? Some new HS show? These fireworks continued for the first several minutes of the show, and it was distracting to say the least. The darkness of the show, the glowing flower-thing, the water/animation, all somewhat wrecked by bright flashing lights and booming sounds coming from behind (and to the left of) the stage.
One more thing: doesn't the dragon go back to where he came after mickey pulls the sword from the rock? I mean, hidden from the audience? The dragon remained on stage, visible but lifeless, even as we exited after the show. I think I saw him move a little bit as we were leaving. Wonder if he got put away in time for the 10:30.
