  • [Review] In defense of Magical

    I just got home from the park, and am a little disappointed. Not in the show, but that everybody seems to hate it already! I really enjoyed it, and think it is an excellent change of pace for the summer season. Remember is one of the most spectacular shows I have ever seen. Magical is not Remember. And that's ok! I thought there were some very creative sequences. I think the spotlights and castle lighting were used very well, and added a different touch. The pyro synchronization does need some tweaking, hence the need for a dress rehearsal.

    Don't sound the panic alarm folks, everything's going to be alright. I mean, I just saw Dumbo fly over the castle!

          Thank you for realizing this. Technical rehearsals are just that: so they can get the timing & everything down. I doubt Remember was spot-on the first time they rehearsed it after-hours. Heaven forbid they let the public see its test run....people probably would've run here screaming that it was a "great show" but the "pyro was off a bit." Give it some time, folks! I think it'll turn out just fine.

              Overall it's a good show. I love it. Dumbo was the high point of the show. there's always room for improvements.

                  i watched several of the various You Tube videos tonight since i won't have the opportunity to see Magical in person

                  i enjoyed it each time i watched it, i loved the lighting effects on the castle, the spotlights behind the castle and especially Dumbo (how could you NOT!?)

                  it did seem a bit "empty" at points, but i doubt they're using their full arsenal for just a dress rehearsal

                  all in all i'm bummed we're not heading back to DL until September, i would really like to have seen this show in person. its not Remember, but honestly, i don't know if Disney will EVER be able to top that.
                  Will there be screams when the sun sets,

                      I just watched two different videos of it, and I love it. I am home in Chicago, and I won't be able to visit Disneyland this Summer, so I am very thankful for the videos that are being posted.

                          I loved the lighting effects on the castle, and thought that Dumbo flying was a wonderful idea, even if it didn't look quite right yet (he needed more movement).
                          Me (Jen) , DH , DD (7) , DD (4) , Belle , Kiara , Fuzzy & Fluffy (Fuz & Fluff are actually fancy rats, but there isn't a rat smiley)

                          DLR trips - '93, '94, '95 (14), '97 (3), '98, '10 (PPH)...maybe another trip at end of 2010 or in 2011
                          WDW trips - '92 with parents & sister, '96 with extended family (there were 18 of us!), & 2000 with DH...next planned for 2012 or 2013
                          Disney Cruise Line - hoping sometime in 2013 or 2014...waiting for the Disney Wonder to arrive in CA!

                            I agree with everything the OP says. I think it's a good temporary show. On its scale, I think it would still make a good permanent show- of course it will never be as good as R...DCT, but in execution it is wonderful.

                              I am just really surprised that they wouldnt do a show as good as Remember. I guess Im one of the DL dreamers that always hopes for something bigger and better with the new technology. I guess I should have learned my lesson with Pooh, but I thought DL had learned a lesson from that. Im sure this show is "fine", but when I saw the pemiere of Remember I was gobsmacked!
                              The projections on the castle, the interaction from other areas, wow...just WOW.
                              I know the economy and all, but I would think (hoped) Disney would do something really spectacular to draw people to the park~
                              Im dragging my non Disney bf to the park on the 12th, and Im sure he will like the fireworks, but I wont be able to explain how amazing Remember was...its just something you have to see for yourself.
                              I know we will still have a great time, but I now wish we hadnt waited for the new shows.
