I'm not saying that their aren't issues with the movie, but they weren't slaves.

So.... Studios can still have legit pyro when they want to....

But it’s pronounced “Happy Slave Song”

I always enjoy Disneylands New Years Eve Show. Was also glad they returned to using Fantasy In The Sky even if it had to be altered to remove the song that is no longer named by the company.

It’s spelt “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”.

I wish you luck you clearly have the skills and dedication necessary.

I've driven on World Drive when fireworks shells fall nearby. Fortunately it didn't fall on the roadway when I was in the area along with the other cars.

So either you do something like this for a living, or you are highly intelligent person with way to much free time on your hands.

Also, even without WoC they still did a countdown / pyro at DCA.

Is it wrong to say the tag was better than the main show?

I agree about the connection with those around you; it's absolutely a show that is much better in person. We enjoyed it tremendously from our vantage point near Morocco. The fireworks shooting from all around the lake at the end was impressive. So much better than the live-stream we saw when it opened.
