    It has.

    Slightly edited show, but improved audio, lighting, and costumes.

    Thanks for starting this thread. Our last trip was 18 months ago and I'm also surprised by all the changes. I wasn't aware of the opening procedure changes; thank you, Robo.

    Hmmm been a while I guess since we saw this... when did it change over? Might be worth a viewing next week (ya know... once the crowds are gone).

    I am excited for all the changes, but I will say the new rope drop/no holding areas make me a little nervous. That is part of my touring plans, so I guess I need to find more info on the changes.

    Embrace it. It eliminates the running of the bulls fiascoes so prevalent in the the past. Only Magic Kingdom still has the running of the bulls in the morning.
