What makes a perfect Nighttime Spectacular?

A discussion over what people believes makes for a great nighttime spectacular. Purely personal opinion.

So the recent trip reports posted by James Rao got me thinking, a lot of people have mixed feelings about World of Color. While most consider the show beautiful, many people find the poor viewing situation to be a deal breaker. So my question is, what is the key to a perfect Nighttime Spectacular?

I personally believe it involves a perfect combination of three things: Great story, a lot of "wow" moments. and yes, good viewing. This is part of the reason I think a lot of people actually prefer DHS's Fantasmic, because it blends these 3 things rather well. And even though as a pure show Disneyland's is clearly better, the stadium seating at DHS makes it almost as popular.

So what do you think? What are the ingredients to a perfect Nighttime show? What is your favorite nighttime spectacular, and what makes it your favorite?
