Published: January 20, 2011 at 11:17 AMI saw a video for this a couple of days ago and I will say that I am very impressed. They are taking the castle to new forms and new heights. While this video gives a good general sense of it, check out youtube for a live taping of it. There is a newlady that does theme park videos that are just spectacular and she filmed this! The effects from form to form on the castle are even more impressive without the "cutting out". One great effect is the castle "blasting off" with Buzz Lightyear!
Perhaps this will be Disney's "gift" to WDW in light of the Wonderful World of Color (which I also saw a video for it a couple of days ago WOW!)
Published: January 20, 2011 at 1:56 PMI just watched the YouTube of the whole show. If that is how good it looks on YouTube, I can't wait to see it in person this June! Incredible! To me, based solely on the video, it beats World of Color hands down!

Published: January 20, 2011 at 4:10 PMIf high-def video projection means that Disney never has to *actually* transform the castle into a giant birthday cake again, it will be technology for which I shall forever be thankful.

Here is the Ralph Lauren link. So cool...
Published: January 21, 2011 at 2:20 AMWow. Stunning. Universal took the cake last year for attractions, but Disney still dominates the lighting and pyrotechnics department. Beautiful work.
That being said... I understand the incentive behind covering the castle in photos taken that day, but the show would be much more impressive without the photographs. They make the show seem tacky, almost like a cheaply made PowerPoint presentation with plenty of star wipes.
Published: January 21, 2011 at 10:09 AMThe photos portion is great for the kids involved and their families so it works very well on that level. But overall I don't think it works.
