the ghost wrote:^ But Disney nerds are different from coaster nerds. I want to say I have waited about an hour to thirty minutes at least 45 or so times since I got my pass two years ago. I am a fan of the show, so I wait, even though I really only care about the Dragon Battle and Heffalump sequences. I also wait for Aladdin and the fireworks like half of the time I go to the park, yet I have seen every show at least 10 times. I dont know why, I am just a Disney nerd, so I will wait, and I guarantee no matter what we say this show is gonna get praise just cause its a Disney park.
Yes, the Disney nerds will show up in droves for this, as they do for everything. But it's not just the Disney nerds who camp out for Fantasmic or the Fireworks, the General Public does this as well. If the General Public doesn't watch the show (and start paying to go inside DCA) then it's not a success.
The real indicator is going to be in the next couple of years if they stop having the 2-fer deal. I'm sure it will still be around next year, but Mermaid opens next spring, then the front entrance stuff will be done and Carsland opens in 2012. If they are STILL having the 2-fer in 2012/2013 then it's a wasted billion dollars.
