I've always been a bit blase about fireworks. But the shows put on at Disney parks could make me a believer. =)
Wish Disney could bring its magic to NYC's 4th of July fireworks. They put on quite a spectacle here, but it doesn't quite compare. To achieve Disney's caliber, I guess we'd need a castle in the middle of the river. Or maybe a skyscraper! :lmao: (Actually the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island would make one spectacular backdrop!) Anyway! Thanks for sharing this magical new show.

Same here, we're going to see it in person on Wednesday..sooo looking forward to it. Don't want to spoil it, so I'm not watching the videos, but everything I've been reading is saying the same thing..INCREDIBLE!

My wife, two kids, and I went to Magic Kingdom today (Memorial Day). I was expecting the worst in terms of crowds, but there were actually moderate-sized crowds today. Thanks Pandora and Volcano Bay!

Why do I still have a donkey title???

Just a heads up, it appears that the reopening of the Hall of Presidents may be delayed due to an argument between Disney Imagineers and White House executives over who gets to write the animatronic president's speech. Sources close to the situation are claiming that the executives have informed the imagineers that they're writing the speech and that the imagineers "have no input on it".

I know it sounds like I'm making this up, but I assure you that I'm not. I was hesitant to post this, but it's been picked up by the Washington Examiner, the Hill, the Theme Park section of Local 10 news in Miami and others and is a pretty interesting scenario as a theme park fan regardless of politics.

He can always say "grab them by the p####" or just make fun of disabled people, but that doesn't fit in with the Disney way of things.

Well, they can say what they want. Disney is denying it and maintaining they always intended for HoP to reopen later this year.

It is sort of interesting to see how this is covered seeing as the news media generally hates theme parks and Disney almost as much as they hate Trump. For now it looks like they're simply capitalizing on an opportunity to make both look bad.

This exactly. Disney can do what they want with this attraction. Even if there was any truth to this, Disney could always choose not to use the speech that they were given and go a different direction with Hall of Presidents. But with the statement that Disney made the other day, I'm sure there is little truth to the story.

All I know is that I won't be visiting Hall of Presidents for at least (I hope) four more years...
