Way back when, almost seven months ago now, I wrote a post about Disney's new nighttime spectaculars that debuted for the 50th Anniversary Celebration. Most of that post is spent waxing poetic about Magic Kingdom's most recent nighttime show, Happily Ever After, and whether then new nighttime shows (Enchantment in Magic Kingdom and Harmonious in Epcot) could live up to that legacy.
I realized I didn't talk a whole lot about those actual shows. Partly this was because I wanted an excuse to talk about HEA, a spectacular in every sense of the word. And partly this was also because I hadn't seen the new shows for myself in person. Watching (and immediately reacting to) videos on YouTube is what the internet is about but it's certainly not the same as seeing them in person. So I asked myself - did I do these new shows an injustice with an unfair comparison? That's what I wanted to address here today.
