They should have extended Illuminations then, unless there was just no possible way to get more pyrotechnic stock, but I sincerely doubt that. EF is probably worse than nothing, it's going to be hard to shake that stench.I think it's nice that they gave filler instead of nothing at all. I can't wait for Harmonius!
They need to redo the electric and other elements of the area. They wouldn't have been able to do that with the current Illuminations setup.They should have extended Illuminations then, unless there was just no possible way to get more pyrotechnic stock, but I sincerely doubt that.

Now I am so excited for this show. Thanks for posting sneak peeks! Already booked a specialty cruise for DH and I for our upcoming trip in Oct. 10 days and counting till we will be there!
It was awesome! We loved it. You are right there under the international gateway. I would do it again for sure. Now with that being said, I still prefer the fireworks cruise over at Magic Kingdom. Our experience has been nothing but wonderful for all of the cruises we have done over there. We always leave out of Grand Floridian and the drivers over there are just so awesome.What did you think?
I've been looking everywhere for someones that's done the cruise with the new show.
AGREE 100% - it was terrible. I can't believe Disney executives saw that and thought it was up to their standards. We will not be seeing it again. Better things to do with my time. Full disclosure, Illuminations was my favorite thing EVER at WDW - but I had already lowered my expectations. Very disappointing.DW and I are huge, huge fans of Illuminations, and we were very sad to hear it was leaving, so we booked a trip for 9/27 to 10/4 to send it off. After seeing two shows that week, including the final one, we braced ourselves for Epcot Forever on 10/1 intending to see it again 10/3.
Well, not to put too fine a point on it, we thought it was awful and left very disappointed. It felt like the music, fireworks, kites and all of that were just happening coincidentally at the same time. There was no coordination, the fireworks didn't match the music at all, the kites seemed to glitch a light. We ended up not even really doing the second viewing and instead choosing to book it out of the park.
Also, there was no story, no narrative, it was just a YouTube style mash-up of Epcot music/sounds, it didn't flow at all. Random Aladdin music was weird, and the kids voice as the announcer was just kind of a strange choice. I know it's just filler, but it feels like some high school interns made it in the last few days before the show. Actually, that's mean to high school interns.
What did everyone else think?
Completely agree. The kites were unique and I liked them alot.Saw again tonight. My opinion hasn't changed. Very disjointed and only Walt's voice and Tapestry music elicit any emotion.
No holiday tag either, which is incredibly disappointing.
