I have never seen the park work around the Celtic Fyre set. If they want to use a projector to show off concepts, then they will have to be creative. I think we can rule out the two main projectors. I still would really like to see something theatrical in addition to the typical speech.

I think they'll just use the screen and projector combo that they use for the Gloria show in Christmas town to make their presentation.

What exactly do you mean by "theatrical?"

I don't mind improved production values, but I never want to sit through another series of awful skits. I am still scarred by the Fall 2013 Pass Member Appriciation Weekend extravaganza.

^You mean "Scott-stravaganza"? No. I mean something more like 2011 Dark Side of the Gardens announcement. I don't mean skits with cheesy dialogue or even elaborate musical numbers. It should be exciting previews, not just talking. The London Rocks thing at the end of the 2013 announcement was almost right. However, they had so many issues, and most people didn't react well to it.

I'm just tired of podium speeches. In fact, last year the only people that I think had enough charisma/ speech skills to talk that long were Dan (marketing) and Franz (culinary).

They might be able to use the front projector, but then they wouldn't have room on-stage. Their rear projector has no room with the Celtic Fyre set.
