I was visiting the parks yesterday with my little niece and nephew, it was a great day not too hot it was actually overcast all day the sun never really broke through and the crowds were very managable all day. The big thing my two little ones were really excited about were the fourth of July fireworks that Disney is running all week long(thank god I dont have to work that show anymore) at 9:10 we got a spot in front of Small World which was roped off, usually meaning theres no wind, and it was quite noticeable cause there was no breeze at all last night. So anyways the show starts and right away I'm thinking "okay the plug is being pulled on this show" because all the fallout was being blown back into the park, I was able to make this decision based on which way the smoke was blowing, but the show stop never came and soon I saw pieces of fallout landing in our general area even after the show was over a kid told his dad "look they gave us confetti" and I'm 100 percent certain it wasn't confetti. When the show ended toontown was no longer visible, Small World even was covered in smoke. Not to rant or bash anyone but I don't know who is making the decisions running the show, there was Disneyland fire department present at Small World so the thought that it went un noticed is not a possibility even a pyro crew member walked over there about halfway through, so they knew, anyways back on topic... I dont know whos making the decisions to keep the show running when you have fallout not only blowing back into the park but also showering guests, when I worked the shows that was a big no-no in Disneys book. I understand they dont control the wing direction and they dont have a weather dome, but there comes a point when safety has to be thrown into the mix. I also understand that it was a limited engagment showing and it wont be around forever. I was somewhat upset with how things were handled yesterday and I hope that next time when its being blow back into the park and over the heads of their guests that the right choice is made and that safety is considered. That fallout "confetti" does continue to burn sometimes when it lands on the ground and luckily for Disney it wasn't burning last night
