Saw Isabella Rossalini tonight, she did a fantastic job and you could tell how happy she was to be there, I just love when performers show their joy. Also, I don’t care what anyone else thinks Candlelight is the best thing Disney does all year long.

Chita Rivera pulled out due to health issues. Now Warwick Davis is not coming. I'm sure there are some back ups standing by.

The question is... will anyone notice?

Still one of my favorite shows, despite who the host is. But I agree....no Christmas Holiday tag after the new fireworks show is a pretty big let down.

The ol’ Davis switcheroo!

I’ve had an email from Disney to say that Warwick Davis has been replaced with Geena Davis on 21st December. I was looking forward to seeing Warwick but I’m sure Geena will be great too.

Health is spelled wrong, its the first word. (You can delete this if you want)

They will have time to reload for NYE. There will be additional hardware available by the 4th.

Didn't Disney say last year that it was the final holiday tag? They did not say the same about NYE or 4th, but with the changes being made around World Showcase and the lagoon, I wouldn't be surprised if they just did a simple count down into EF. Harmonious might be up and running for the next 4th, so they may do something then.
