    Wow apparently the last couple of days there have been illuminations shows at epcot without any fireworks. Concerns over the weather.

    I cant even imagine what that would look like :/

    Seems a fairly reasonable compromise when safety is an issue.

    The wind that accompanies a tropical storm or hurricane could send a spark into the crowd or somewhere else that could start a fire.

    Definitely not what you want to see when visiting WDW, but sometimes the safety of all has precedence.

    Hmmmm, the wind hasn't been all that strong at all until today. I've been there when the wind was a major factor. It's always an insider tip when determining where to view the show. Never stand down wind.

    I hope this isn't a portent of things to come. Disney has a growing reputation of doing unpleasant things under the guise of something that sounds much more reasonable.

    I know I heard fireworks once this week at least. Must have been Wishes then.

    I wonder why they'd have them one place and not the other.

    It has to be a huge savings not to set off all those fireworks. I used to know how many it was, but have since forgotten.

    Extra credit to whomever can find out!

    When we took the KTTK tour, our guide told it is cost ONE MILLION dollars per night to put on Illuminations. That is what he said, I swear.
