OUAT is back. Saw most of it periscope. Nothing new that I saw. Periscope is prob. not the place to test the clarity of the projections so IDK if they look any better. Maybe they'll upgrade it closer to or after HEA's opening?

Ah, well we'll see!


I was talking about happily ever after.

OUAT??? Or Wishes? I don't think it sounds anything like Fantasy. OUAT was made first for TDL and I don't think they used Fantasy for inspiration, I could be wrong.


Is it me or does this Happily Ever After soundtrack have a similar sound to the original fantasy in the sky?


I never heard that, maybe it was

I thought that Disneyland Forever was always intended to only be temporary for the 60th anniversary...


Well it took only 2 years for forever to die out and for Remember to come back with projections, let's see how long it takes for them to bring back wishes with projections. I'd love to see a projection of Chernobog and have the castle turn into bald mountain then that song comes up. Forever the way I see it was only there to make the technology worth while make a new show for all that extra hype, once it does down they scraped it and bought back the old show.

I got to see Wishes Original for Last time back in February 2017! I was sad this was going away. :( Oh well good things must comes to end. Disney World taking out lots of my favorite things lately, I'm only going every few years Disney Trip is not cheap!

Maybe they'll project the Electrical parade on the castle and call it "Once Upon A Time There Was An Electrical Parade"

Remember, TDLs OUAT is their big night time show. WDW will have HEA afterwards. Why give all the tricks away in the first show? There's a reason RoE doesn't use the syncrolites, earthglobe and seawall launchers all during chaos.

Lasers don't belong on the castle, but that ship has sailed. Why have all the same show elements in both shows? One becomes pointless.
