I could not agree more! I am not watching the videos with sound its a weird thing I do I don't like to hear the music until I'm there but I have seen some video and it looks AMAZING! I also saw Symphony in the stars which was amazing and that nearly had me in tears and this one looks so much better!

I was excited to see it, but now I'm disappointed. I much prefer Symphony as a fireworks show. Also, you need to be right in front of the theater to enjoy this properly.

Symphony was Disney's most expensive fireworks show. Each show costed four times more than Wishes, which is one of the reasons it ran so infrequently. Symphony was chock full of fireworks. This show not so much.

Really? It's *so* much better than I had ever imagined it being. But I had never seen the other show, so I didn't have that expectation. It is a huge show, and was somewhat difficult to decided where to look. It was difficult to watch the projection and the fireworks in the sky at the same time. But that didn't really diminish it for me, I just figure it makes it worth seeing more than once.

My three favorite parts are the Star Destroyer flyover projection, the rapid lasers coming out of the projections during the battle scenes, and the fire cannons on top of the theater.

Don't get me wrong it looks very cool. The pyrotechnics are incredible. But as pure fireworks, I don't like the screens. I like that you can watch Symphony and even Wishes from anywhere, even outside the park, and get that sense of enormity. This one seems like you have to be right in front of the theater or you lose most of the show. JMO I'm often in the minority.

I like the projection onto the buildings! The fireworks are all timed with the clips, so it doesn't bother me too much to try to watch both at once.

Oh my gosh - I LOVED THIS!

Even better in person than watching the video. The lasers are used perfectly, there are special lighting effects in the trees around the courtyard that add to the experience, the sound vibrates through you, and you can feel the heat from the giant towers of flame. It was AMAZING. If you're on the edge of if you want to go see it or not - GO!

Bad news Hurley...it's currently suspended for a new Christmas show using similar technology. I believe this is the Jingle Bell Jingle BAM if I'm not mistaken. Hopefully Star Wars will be back after New Year's because it's AWESOME, but I don't believe we have confirmation on that yet.
