Sounds cool. I agree, the whole crowd thing can take away from the effect.

I've not seen Disneyland but I have seen Disneyworld several times - truly amazing and emotionally charged when accompanied by the music.
I heard Disneyworld is great! A little off topic, but if you ever have a chance, go to Disney's California Adventure and watch The World of Color. It's truly AMAZING!
I think the Disney experience and the one you describe are not comparable. They cater to a different crowd (or lack of in your case). Your balcony show sounds like it would have been memorable.
