  • Video Facade Lighting Does More Than Train Rainbows

    As Master Gracey reported in the Dateline Disneyland report, the Small World Facade now has lighting on it at night which changes color as the Disneyland Railroad passes through it.

    As I was investigating the progress of the ride so close to reopening, the clock began to go off, and I realized that there is also a subtle light show which corresponds with the Clock going off! Enjoy!

    Unfortunately I was never able to get better view from the front due to time, but hopefully this gives you an idea of how neat it looks!

    Some of the toy soldiers from when the clock goes off are still missing... conspicuously.


    The "Hello" room is already restored to its non Holiday form.

            That is really cool. I can't wait to see it all in person.

              I like how now there's two soldiers missing instead of just the one (yes I know its still technically not open). Not to sound demented or anything, but if you could flicker between the orange, yellow, and red colors just right you could make a really effective fire illusion!
              I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.

                These new lights appear to be an impressive work. They add a whole new dimension to the icon, whimsical facade.

                    Sweet! This will make me want to ride the Railroad at night now.

                      I still crack up remembering the year I was there for the transformation from Holiday to regular IASW. They were testing the clock and the doll parade. Only thing is, the doors center front would not stay open and kept slamming back into the next doll's face.

                        I like the new lighting a lot. Is it LED based? Or have they just added lots of controls to the already present floodlight system and beefed it up?

                        Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

                          I like it, as well. It'll be nice to see in person at some point.

                            I'll have to look, but probably LED based judging from the color fade rather than a switch - that's how they did the entire Castle. They are getting fancy :geek: Phillips now has a LED rope light with 60 or 150 LED's spaced every 4" and every single lamp in each string can be individually addressed with DMX computer lighting control protocol.

                            You could string a bunch of these down the side of the building and turn it into an instant message sign... Give them a few more years, and it will be fast enough for full video. Or string them permanently around the borders of the Small World facade like they install the christmas lights, and have that same rainbow effect happen with point source lamps. :bow:

                              I did see that while I was in the park this weekend and it looked great.
