Here are some photos. At first I was skeptical about the new paint on the former France kiosk, but so far I like it as long as Coca Cola doesn't force any more advertising on it. On the other hand, Coke bottles like the one in the main flower bed now line the back wall of the Royal Palace Theatre. At least it's kind of out of sight for now rather than on the stage somewhere.

Everything was out in the open, except the Coca Cola ice cream booth, which was still behind fencing.

Does anyone know what this "spectacular lighted garden presentation" will entail? Will it be like Starlight Spectacular at Kings Dominion?

Going through the Wildlife Reserve I thought that's exactly what this will be like. Even outside of the habitat garden, there are numerous lights pointing upwards at the trees. I think our old amphibian friends might want to find another place to hang out at night.

I am very disapointed in this event. Tonight at 6pm all the music switched over to modern 2000ish pop music. No mixing with other eras. I understand wanting to create a party like atmosphere, but if BG wants to keep older guests happy, they will need to have a more varied music selection. Second the lack of shows later. The 8 o'clock hour was dead with nothing. The last CF was at 6pm. Why did they eliminate the standard 8pm CF show? 9:45 is way too late for fireworks. All for One should have been at 9pm with fireworks no later than 9:30. 15 minutes may not seem like much, but it does matter. Why no October zest today? Festhuas was a dead zone. I really hope this isn't indicative of the rest of the summer.

I heard the lack of OktoberZest today was due to their working on Tuesday (July 4th) this week, their usual day off. That being said, I agree with you on the lateness of AFO and the fireworks. Also, the band playing in France, The Invaders, at the 8:45 show had to play over the hamlet soundtrack. AFO ended just as the fireworks began so we missed part of the fireworks exiting the theatre and getting to a decent viewing location.

Went Saturday but didn't get the Swag. I was surprised at the low attendence Saturday, even with the concert it was low and maybe that with the 4th holiday they had a shortned show schedule.
I do like the options of the food booths being out for Summer Nights but was really disappointed in the music they played. It was just not fitting and just terrible.

That's interesting... This is the second or third post that comments on low attendance this time of year. I believe a saw a post or two that July 4th time frame wasn't as crowded as expected and I saw a Instragram post from Luke on a Friday (last week I think) that showed a pretty empty park. I hope for the park's sake this doesn't continue. A busy park means they are making money and can reinvest it into the park. A dead park means they will be cutting staff or services they offer. I hope the park has a good and profitable summer....

I went a bunch this spring and it was always crowded with large groups. Plus with the opening of InvadR, they always seemed busy...
