  • First, let me say THANK YOU for all the new and ongoing magic being brought to DLR and DCA!!! WOW!!! I was lucky enough to have seen World of Color twice on Friday and Saturday and there just are no words to describe it other than WOW! I do have a question though-what is the reasoning behind the standing room only policy to see the show???? The first night we were able to sit on one of the benches but once everyone stood up by the fence, most of the view was cut off. The second night we were fortunate enough to be right at the fence and what a different experience actually being able to see the show! I felt so bad for the many, many, many people who could not see and take in the full scope of the show do to the standing policy. Any child, person in a wheelchair (even though there were ample handicap viewing areas) shorter people etc-once everyone stood up, unless you were at the fence the view was gone or and least blocked a great deal. What exactly is the rational behind this-just curious. Thanks again for a wonderful show!

  • WOW WOW and Double WOW. World of Color was simply amazing. Disney Imagineers have really out done themselves.

    All the exiting changes for the 55th. What an exciting time to be a AP holder.
