Every time I try to see this thing it breaks down somehow. I was super close to going last night but had something come up. I was feeling down about it, so it's nice to know it would have left me still trying to see the show with everything functioning.

Fantasmic was on D mode last night. First, Mickey didn’t pop up at the beginning, so they had to restart. Then, the water screens didn’t fire on, so they had a 30 minute downtime fixing that. Finally, the show begins and Aladdin doesn’t jump, Jafar’s snake doesn’t move, and there’s no magic lamp. It was interesting, to say the least.

I thought they were going to? or it was rumored. Yikes poor FoF. Maybe the lack of fixing FoF is because they plan on a new parade in 2024 🤣.

Considering the parade was made to celebrate Walt Disney's 100th Birthday. Share A Dream Come True Parade's score being slow was actually fitting since it gave the parade a relaxed and peaceful tone. Especially since it used to have a show-stop variation between 2001 till 2003.

Had to correct what you said lol. My opinion of course but only because it was instrumental like Spectro. SADCT was to slow though and not very exciting. I guess Disney Dreams Come True wasn’t bad and I prefer those lyrics over Tokyos version. But the lyrics in CADCT? 🤮 sorry lol. Only good thing that came out of CADCT was the show stop Only because it slightly reminded me of the Parade Of Dreams show stop. Unfortunately the floats extremely overstayed their welcome. Needles to say when FoF debuted it was a breath of fresh air. Unfortunately that fresh air is now starting to get stale.

Oh yes the Dreams Come True days, or years. Started with Share A Dream Come True, then Disney Dreams Come True, then Celebrate A Dream Come True 🤮.
