    So scenic and the new effects look great. (Though the Phantom's new placement in the ballroom is rather awkward.)

    But story-wise? What. The. Eff. Is this Melanie or Constance? Since the original story of PM is a very sorrowful tale, a bride who's to marry "the one". Only for a vengeful phantom to kill him on the day of their wedding, and the bride forever waiting for him to return.

    The addition of the multiple suitors muddies that, not to mention the effect of the bride vanishing in the portraits makes it seem like she has a sinister edge. Add in her asking you if you'll marry her at the end, and this story is botched.

    Speaking of botched, Phantom Manor had the best mansion soundtrack which flowed through the whole ride. For them to chop and discard it here and there is a travesty.

    Couple steps forward, several leaps back. Ugh.

    Doea anyone have an idea of what the crowds for a Monday and Tues, the first week of June will be like? We can visit the park on either the 3rd or 4th.

    So in a fascinating note, Disneyland Paris is the first to use a particular type of daytime fireworks..

    It looks like a bigger version of the Troll's Guy Diamond Fart glitter thing......not a joke either.

    Epcot used something very similar in the 80's. The effect was the same.

    Isn’t this the screwiest thing? They don’t try to round up wild birds at the Orlando parks do they? I’ve never seen it happen.

    Yup, happens a lot at Universal. Mostly when the ducks are still young and could get hurt or die easier. Tourists are incredibly stupid when it comes to these things and kids try to mess with them as well as adults, which is why they get nudged to a location of the main walkway.

    Thing is, no one outside of Animal control is actually allowed to touch these animals, so there ends up being a lot of crazy scenarios where there’s 3-4 people trying to round them up.

    This is a fun watch. Apparently they don’t do the tall big fireworks in Paris?

    Unfortunetly Paris' Illuminations is a massive mess, its a cut up version of the old show Dreams and is a horrible watch in its current form

    Disney used to just poison the birds to keep the nuisance animals away. They got in a lot of trouble for that...
