Yes we know that progress must be made and that things come and go. What are we getting at you say? The answer is simple with the Streets of America closed down to become Star Wars Land and Toy Story Land means that the Osborne Spectacle of Dancing Lights had to leave and what we now have is Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam.
If you’ve been to MGM in the past few months then you’ve seen the Star Wars show displayed on the Chinese Theater which is home to The Great Movie Ride. Basically that means it uses the same infrastructure as that show with large screen projections on the theater and lasers. While the overall concept is good, compared to the Osborne lights we’ve been so accustomed to , it does feel like a bit of a letdown. The main issues we had was while this is a Christmas show, a lot of the clips used where not from Disney Christmas cartoons, that it self took away form the over all holiday feel of the show.
Is this show a total bust? Well no if you haven’t been to MGMin a few years or never saw the Osborne Lights. Honestly the fireworks of Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam remind us if the original Sorcery in the Sky that we saw way back in 1990. But over all had this show been over the at the Magic Kingdom instead of MGM it would be a better fit. However it’s a catch 22 you don’t have 5 million lights and ha half the par under construction it was either Jingle Bell, Jingle Bam or nothing.
On a scale of 1.0 to 5.9 it got a 3.8 out of 5.9
