A couple nights ago, my wife found a YouTube video someone posted of the HEA fireworks as seen from the Garden plaza. While the view was nice, I have to admit, I was overall unimpressed with the show for one very specific reason: There is WAY too much going on! I frankly couldn’t follow any of it. Fireworks going off while projection mapping is going on. By the time I would figure out what the projection mapping was showing, it would switch scenes or there’d be more fireworks going off simultaneously with the projection mapping. It was visual overload. And this was on a little screen. I can only imagine how much harder it would be to follow in person where you have to actually move your head to follow everything.
It makes me wonder why Disney doesn’t separate the two…fireworks after the Projection mapping show, rather than simultaneous to it.
Am I the only crazy one?
Now, two years ago when we were there in person to watch the castle/fireworks show I found it more frustrating than anythings. Crowds were a nightmare, and despite the fact that found our spot an hour and a half before the show, about 5 minutes before the show a group of tall folks stood in front of us so that my wife (who is only 5 ft tall) could no longer see. All that hard work to make sure we had a good view was for nothing in her case. People were rude, shoving. And when I tried to join my family (after walking away briefly, the crowd at first refused to let me back in to be next to my wife. I had to shove my way in.
