    LOL.... We keep raising the gas tax in NJ, we won't be able to afford our gas either.... Topic for another day though...

    I'm thinking the gas pipes are in need of major repair and it isn't financially feasible (who we kidding, Disney can afford to fix the pipes!!)... Or operationally feasible to fix them...

    May I add, I wrote this post while listening to: ILLUMINATIONS - REFLECTIONS OF EARTH, preshow music included.... Ahhh how I love this music....

    BRODIE: Hey, now, be fair. EVERYONE wants Mr. Toad's Wild Ride.

    I LOVE the torches. I get cold at night, and our spot right next to the torch in front of Canada feels wonderful.

    What do I want with nighttime fireworks? FIREWORKS! Not some lame, tired old water projections, or some redone, rehashed material we all have seen hundreds of times before. Come up with a totally new show, as good or better than Illuminations and I'm in. Especially with some really cool drone element involved. LOTS of fireworks though, and if I see ANY Disney characters, I'm headed straight to Guest Services to complain - loudly.

    Unhappy

    I'm heartbroken, but knew this was coming when Siemens severed ties with Disney. I'm actually surprised it took this long. They will go after SSE next, I imagine. Sigh.

    The problem with SSE is that they DID go after it. Now we have that long, dull backwards descent.

    Change is not bad .... if the new show is creative and well done ..... and if we are lucky the folks that thought replacing Off Kilter with the Lumberjack show won't be involved here .....

    They will probably feel empowered to really change up SSE finally. Now that they've proven retiring the concept/focus of Future World is acceptable to today's crowds, there won't be so much blowback when they propose gutting it and making some sort of thrill ride out of it.
