Disney Springs Boat Transportation to Disney Resort Hotels

The Sassagoula River Cruise will end earlier each night to make way for the show. The final boats from Port Orleans—French Quarter and Riverside, Old Key West, and Saratoga Springs to Disney Springs will depart at 7:30 pm, and the last return boat from Disney Springs to these resorts will leave at 8 pm. Guests can still use the bus transportation to all Resort hotels after the boat service stops.

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???????

Something I found very interesting. In the imagineering video about music a couple of weeks ago, during the part about this show, the writer of the song says "I just imagine my daughter hearing the song in the park". Was this show originally meant for one of the parks and was moved to Springs, or what it just him misspeaking? If it was originally meant for a park, I wonder which one.

1 hour before for good spots, 30 min before for a spot for the first show. 30 min wait for good spots, 15 min for a spot for the second show. This show gets my stamp of approval, I hope something similar to this is added to AK.

Yeah it’s still heavy. You want to be by Cirque at 7:45 to secure a front row

How have the crowds been for the main viewing area? Do you have to get there early?

This is part of the Tiana event, yeah.

They need to setup food and beverage for the media event. They cannot empty the 9pm show in time to do the prep.

Let's them control logistics/crowds a bit more I'm sure.
