    Re: Dumbo To Fly With Tinker Bell In "Magical" Fireworks

    it depends on the scaling of dumbo. if he is the same size of tink, then no.

      I don't know if now would be a good idea to implement the living character initiation program. :lol: Talk about a high wire feat!

      That would be cool if Dumbo had a platform he sat on, then plunged off, and just near the ground he swept back up and did his thing...

          I don't really quite understand how two (or more) characters would work. From the looks of it, Tink jumps out of the Matterhorn and cannot be returned to that position which is why she always returns to her pine tree. This means a few things...

          A) IF Tink is not able to return to the Matterhorn, they will have to create an entirely new harness, which I'm sure wouldn't be too expensive for Disney though...

          B) I am under the impression that the platform on the pine tree is very tiny. How are they going to fir both Tink and Dumbo on there? Especially, as previously mentioned, if Dumbo is "to scale" and much larger than Tink?

          I'm not quite so sure about this Dumbo thing as it seems very improbable and difficult to do. I understand that the riggings they now have up are much more complicated than the original zip line they had up, though I don't know how an elephant would work out. Would they be able to control movements remotely, or would a puppeteer have to ride along? You're all right that a cardboard cut out would be preposterous, but it's Disney so we'll have to wait and see.

            For RCT Tinkerbell actually flew back and forth with a mechanical device traveling the wire. I would assume that the save device could be made to carry dumbo which could have mechanical effects such and ears flapping etc. The highlight is moving back and forth and being able to have the body turn so it does not look like he is being dragged around but choosing to turn. I think it would be better if they could do it with out a person for safty and cost.

            They could some time rig three 'balls' of light for the Sleeping Beauty Fairys who could be part of the show. That would be pretty cool.

              definitely with you. you can't make too much of a judgment call until we even really know all about Magical....dumbo could be a wonderful addition or a completely horrible idea.

              and someone said that there isn't a plot with the fireworks....well, have you been paying attention when you watch them bc they most certainly do have a plot. it's not like a solid movie type storyline. but it's not just some background music with any old fireworks going at any time. it's well thought out as to what music and what type of firework will express the right emotion/action...

                  Remember had a very definite story to it. You were introduced to Disneyland and allowed to hear the dedication. Tinkerbell did her "intro thing" just like in the TV specials and set off the fireworks around the castle with her wand.

                  You were then placed at the Main Street Station with the train whistle and allowed to "visit Main Street" before a magical tour around Disneyland... just as if you were riding the train through all of these lands. Your first stop, the Tiki room, and then Indy before getting Pirates and HM, etc... ending with Tomorrowland.

                  Then there is a finale that wraps up how Disneyland has influenced so many people and will continue to do so.

                  The holiday fireworks also have loose stories to them.

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

                    Re: Dumbo To Fly With Tinker Bell In "Magical" Fireworks

                    The whole idea sounds a bit tacky to me. What makes Tinker Bell work so well is her costume. It's all nicely lit up, and with the spotlights on her, she stands out beautifully against the dark sky and can be seen from a good distance away.

                    Isn't Dumbo gray? How's that going to look with the spotlights? I wonder how the Dumbo costume would look like, too. Tinker Bell is just a fairy, so she only wears a small costume with wings attached and a mask. How are they going to pull off an elephant flying through the air?
                    Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

                            Mr. Wiggins will return to the forum after the doctors repair his skull, which unfortunately 'sploded when he heard that Dumbo will be flying with Tinker Bell.

                                  If you want to talk "loose story" then we'll talk Wishes, but as far as Remember goes its "story" is all over the place.

                                  Brief synopsis of Remember's "story" for those who may not agree with me:

                                  WISHES! -> Julie Andrews -> WISHES! -> Disney Characters Wishing -> Julie Andrews -> Your Friend, Walt Disney -> Main St. -> Adventureland -> New Orleans Square -> WISHES! -> Frontierland -> Fantasyland/Toontown -> Tomorrowland -> Julie Andrews -> WISHES!

                                  A big part of any firework show's "story" is its music, and the only time I ever hear "Remember...Dreams Come True" are the two times Julie Andrews mentions it at the very beginning and very end. The bulk of the show is a very coherent middle act entitled "E-Tickets in the Sky." The opening and closing acts, however, are disjointed and completely out of tune with the rest of the show.

                                  When I see a firework show entitled "Remember...Dreams Come True" I expect that to be at least somewhat reflected in the music, even if loosely. Heck, Believe (both versions), Wishes, and even Imagine did this to some extent. For some reason, though, the beginning and ending acts are all about "Wishing," for which they utilized the exact musical theme taken from "Wishes" (that in itself should explain a lot). They even felt it was necessary to include the theme randomly in the middle of the "E-Tickets" segment!

                                  Granted, this theory doesn't apply to all firework shows, but most of the schmaltzy, tug-at-your-heartstrings ones that Disney does usually have soundtracks that are somewhat tied into the show's title.

                                  The biggest problem with Remember is that, at least musically, it feels like a dozen individual shows instead of one big, grand production, when really it should've been more integrated from the beginning.

The views of the above poster are critical even despite the poster's previously aforementioned love for the show.

                                      Still a rumor. As a disneyfan, i have trust in disney in creating something spectacular.

                                      Will it be better than remember? I have no idea...

                                      Will it be spectacular and entertaining? yes.
