The thing is like 9 minutes long… …the thing is like 9 minutes long Don’t make the piracy so “normal”, please?

Disney would be charging more than $120/person for a dessert party. I'd say that $25/person for guaranteed seating is more than fair. Whether you pay for food and drink is on you and that is separate.

Or any nighttime show for that matter at AK. And we need drones that rise up for the “I See The Light” segments in HEA and Luminous!

A Christmas version perhaps?

I’m sure an extension is possible if it’s still popular by late summer or perhaps a Christmas return.

Before the Official Announcement, we thought Drones were ready for a Park. Whether This Show went to DS for Safety or to help DS IDK, but it's paying off! I really wish Dreams That Soar could stay at DS! Does Everything really need a Park Ticket???????
