You can now see the schedule for the show through June of this year. The show will only happen every other day in February with showtimes at 7:15 pm. The every other day schedule continues into March but the shows get pushed way back to 8:45 pm during the month. In April, some nights will have two performances at 8:30 and 9:45 pm. By early April, the show turns to a nightly event. In May, there is one show at 9:15 pm although Disney is still listing the park hours as 9 am to 7 pm, but that is obviously going to change.
As many of you know, the show debuted during a special event this week. And unlike the cast member previews from some months ago, video taping was permitted. I will start off by saying, I have only seen videos of it so any criticisms might not be fair as a result, and I certainly may change my mind once I see it in person.
But I found it a little ho hum, no real oomph. There certainly is plenty to like such as the sound track and the lotus flower fountains. The water screens seem a vast improvement to the Jungle Book show, but I can't promise that for every seat. The shamans don't really keep the story together at all. And there are real dry spots in the tempo of the show.
I know Disney won't or can't use fireworks due to animal safety and welfare, but something else I think is needed. Perhaps drones like the ones used recently at Disney Springs during the holidays. Of course, that damn flying dragon from a few years back would be perfect but what are you going to do.
