A Holiday Version of The Magic, The Memories and You
Written by Skipper Adam
I personally love things that are reprogrammable and easily changed for Holidays, say like the Haunted Mansion Holidays.Tweet
The newest change for Holidays will be the still young The Magic, The Memories and You. Scheduled to premier on November 8, the new show will feature ribbons, candy canes and wrapping paper. Sounds whimsical like a castle birthday cake, but gaudy for only moments. Not many details have been released except the date and a few details to Cast Members, who are keeping mum pretty well.
For those who don't know of The Memories, The Magic and You is a complicated show using an army of powerful projectors, to project Photopass and other pictures on WDW's castle and DL's it's a small world. What's cool about the show is that in the computer, they built virtual copies of the building, then animated the surface of that. Using projectors around the building, projecting the digital building on the real building. Doing this, they can create 3D effects and make the building look like it's morphing, or burning or yawning.
The interesting part, in my opinion, is how it will look with the beautiful fishnet lights. Almost invisible during the day, projecting images on them might not look so good and ruin the effects. Like I described earlier, the castle was modeled to match perfectly, but the fish nets will blur that.
Only time will tell how it turns out.
