    Oh Thank goodness someone else remembers this show. LOL I was beginning to believe I am too old for these forums. LOL But you are correct as THAT was a real Disney holiday show. My favorite moment was at the end of the show when the dancers stood on the upper levels of Cinderella Castle wearing the Electrical parade-style lit up costumes. What magical sight and show ending. I miss it.

Probably participant Malin did not get to see the old "Sparkling Christmas Spectacular" castle show which was 3 times bigger, better and more delightful than the current holiday castle show at the Magic Kingdom. But I also can understand why people would find the current "Celebrate the Season" show delightful since it is a better offering when compared to the mediocre regular offerings at that particular park.
    In regards to Tokyo Disney Sea.. well yes, I expected more from their lagoon holiday show. Big disappointment. Still, I would go to Tokyo Disney gladly over the Disney World any day.

    We just returned from our first visit. After a whole day of being blown away by Disneysea, Colors of Christmas was the only time my partner and I looked at each other and said, "that's it?" The only part I liked was the post-show - I liked the Holiday music that would get loud to signal a change in decoration on the Fantasmic tree. Still, it was such an amazing day that the show did not dampen out spirit.

    I have a friend who works for OLC. He told me that they spent many many millions to build electrical generators that will kick in automatically in case of a general power loss. They obviously aren't using them for normal stuff, like air conditioning, which was in short supply when I visited in October. It was pretty hot--I got a sunburn, and it was also warm inside many of the rides. It was just plain hot inside the shops.

    Considering that everything is looked at in terms of the gross income or loss for the year, the expense for the generators could easily wipe out the income generated by record park attendance.

    So, it could be a combination of what Roger said, saving for the 30th, and paying for the generators. Whatever it is, the Halloween cutbacks at Tokyo Disneyland were evident all over the park except the hub. Fingers crossed for better things next year.

While other Disney parks fail to offer regular changes to there seasonal entertainment. What we do get out of them is usually rather good. Take for instance the delightful Castle Show in front of Cinderella Castle at the Magic Kingdom. Sometimes I'd rather see something of good quality stick around year after year then get regular changes that fail to impress. And are done only to push merchandise sales. This has me re considering visiting next year!

    This'd definitely not make me reconsider a trip to TDL or TDS. Come on! Missing out on two of the world's best theme parks'd be like missing out on dinner because the plate isn't colorful enough.

    I think it has more to do with putting their resources towards getting ready for the 30th anniversary vs tring to save money after the tsunami. If ou remember, attendance bounced back to record levels once things settled down post earthquake/tsunami.

    @Timmy I think youre right about the saving money.
    I mean look at summer,Halloween,christmas season this year at both parks,they are offering something new in a big way but in reality it is less.Last year they said that they were building something about the electricity and stuff I maybe wrong. but I think that is one of the reasons why the seasonal events this year are less entertaining but it is an OK show or They are making something big for next years anniversary celebration.

    Not as good as the old Christmas show. Not really good at all. When it comes to DisneySEA one expects more. Just Ok.
    They talked too much. Just be silent and enjoy the spirit of the season. But no... they had to babble for 11 minutes.
    Oh well...

    Thanks for sharing. And this does indeed confirm that the Fantasmic! hat is used and it is unaltered resulting in a "crooked" or "tilted" tree.

    Will be checking it out for myself tomorrow! :yea:
