Just finished watching this

Absolutely, the most incredible Broadway show I have ever seen. The choreography, lyrics, music were all just spectacular.

Great 4k presentation with some nice Atmos effects

Going to watch this again tomorrow. Completely blown away! It exceeded my expectations and they were very high!​
As some of you know, I'm not a big-time musical fan. It really takes a good musical to get me to sit down for 160 straight minutes to watch one. When it comes to me, another thing it had going for it is that Alexander Hamilton is my favorite Founding Father so my interest was high in watching this musical. A beautiful video and audio presentation by Disney+.

So, I take it you really liked it then?

Seems to be a lot of people making quite a bit of "ado" about Jonathan Groff's (King George) spit...

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been spit on by actors in the first two rows of a broadway show. They are powerful expectorates! ;)

Hard to say at this point. As of this post, the only vintage Fox titles on Disney+ are the original Miracle on 34th Street, Journey to the Center of the Earth, The Sound of Music, and Hello, Dolly! (Please let me know if I’m forgetting any titles).
HBO Max seems to have more Fox titles than any other service right now.

I have more respect for the filmed Hamilton after learning it's actually 3 performances stitched together. 2 were in front of an audience then all the close-ups were filmed without an audience.

Once you know that you can notice small things such as costumes changing a bit (one of the sisters has a flower that disappears then reappears) but they did a fantastic job putting it together.

Has Disney + added other significant archival series, World of Disney, specials, etc. since the ones available at original launch? Talking about 1950s-1980s.

We tried it for a month at launch, and watched what was available then. Then left. Wondering if they've gotten around to releasing any others lately.

Some select episodes of Wonderful World of Color are there like the Disneyland Pre Opening Report episode, Man on the Moon and a Mars one. There's also a Mouseketeers at WDW episode, though I haven't watched it yet. I know there's more, but those are the ones coming to mind.
