Sounds great! By pure chance, I will be there on 8th May. I'll be sure to avoid the "splash zones! though!

I saw the show Sunday and was under-whelmed. It was a combo of The Great Movie Ride's montage and some WOC fountains + fireworks.

Is this show on the waterway inside Universal Studios? Or outside in the waterway outside the park in Citywalk? Thanks

Inside the park, on the lagoon.

To be honest i had doubts about this but next time i go I'll check it out! I've already worked a schedule out. Hit islands of adventure with universal hotel early access in morning and work from wizarding world to spiderman then go to studios at midday work counterclockwise go to despicable me and rip ride rocket during parade then probably go to t2 or mib until cinematic spectacular .

It's on par with something like WDW's Fantasmic. However, that Fantasmic is old and outdated.

What were you expecting Dom? $100 bills to come flying out of the lagoon? You were probably preprogrammed to be under-whelmed [sic] as the show doesn't reside within the borders of Disney owned property. For someone who bashes USF so often, you claim to spend quite a bit of time there.

NB, I don't bash UO. I came in with high expectations, but I came out under-whelmed.

I thought it was fantastic- the fireworks alone outdo a lot of the Disney shows I've seen. And in case you don't want to hang out in the park till 8:30 you can also see the fantastic fireworks on your way out to the parking lot and from Citiwalk too. It is spectacular. If you were not impressed I think you are sourgraping a bit.

I respect Dom's opinion. It's not the greatest show of all time, but it was good enough for me to skip my 7:30pm hotel shuttle and pay for a cab... twice! Personally I thought there could have been a few more fireworks, but other than that I thought it was well done.

I am not expecting the greatest show I have ever seen, it's just a tribute to 100 years of movies. I am more interested in seeing the film clips than fireworks.

The 360 show was pretty good, but I think the mist projectors are a cool way to have a temporary screen. The big white globes in the lagoon always looked out of place in the daytime.

I totally agree about the 360 spheres N B. I think they where a bit of an eye soar during the day. I only got to see that show once, but I was unable to get a good view of the projection on the sphere. That's what disappointed me the most about it. The new show sounds like it will be right up your alley! I hope you enjoy it like I did!
