We posted earlier about the new Welcome Show and rope drop process for the Magic Kingdom. Well the new show debuted earlier this week and Disney is giving those who can’t make it to the parks a look at what you can expect during your next visit to Walt Disney World. Check out the video after the jump.
I’ve been pretty vocal about my feelings on the Welcome Show on Twitter. I loved the old version. I felt it was a good way to start off the day and set the mood for guests entering Main Street. Now that both Main Street and the hub are open to guests an hour before the park opens I completely understand the need for something new. I watched the new show and I don’t think it has the same magic as the old show. It honestly feels phoned in. I get that this show is not seen by a majority of guests (I’ve never seen the old one in person just due to needing sleep and the evil thing known as the Eastern time zone) so maybe Disney didn’t feel they needed to put the same effort as other Castle Forecourt stage shows. The video is below and honestly is pretty much the whole thing.
