I was expecting a full show, with Intermission and all that but I realized that the show has been reduced to a little more than one hour. Why? It is a great show indeed, but why so short now? It went from a traditional family show to a 3-D, high tech display of nonsense. I will not recommend it to those who have seen it in the past.

Hot dogs and basketball shorts...The show was really spectacular and amazing. We adults really enjoyed it, having fun, until I smelled hotdog...I turned back and in the row behind me a family of four were eating HOTDOGs in the theatre. UNBELIEVABLE. WHere is this nation and culturegoing. Who let them in with food. It's bad enough that we let people eat and drink during the performance, but that hot dog smell just ruined everything. Other distraction - men in basketball shorts, hoodies and hats and all those picture taking and recording. People forget how to enjoy the moment...

My Children, 6 and 9, left disappointed last night after Santa told them that there would be 2 opportunities to view 3D scenes and there was only one. Apparently scene 10, Santa's Video Game was omitted. Humbug to you Christmas Spectacular. We were left sitting in the theater with 2 little boys holding 3D glass thinking it was their fault, that they must have missed the magic word. Pretty sad when a sweet 6 yr old leaves what should have been a magical show crying.After explaining that it wasn't his fault, that he didn't miss it he asked innocently, and I quote "why did Santa lie?". Looking for a way to speak to someone personally about this. Kids did enjoy the show until the abrupt ending.

What we thought

glitz CHEER Fun

Even the musical haters should find this show a fun way to celebrate the festivities of the holidays.

There sure is nothing like it to get you in the Christmas spirit! As Andy Williams would sing... "It's the most wonderful time of the year!"
