  • Curtain Drop Dropped

    The big castle reveile on the 5th has been sc. The other night they did a test run othis and it was a catastrufy. The wind got a hold of the curtain (made of a parachut typed material) and bluw it up tward the castle. When all was done it had broken some flag masses and other thing on the castle. All was fixed by opening the next morning, but because of the misshap they have sc the idea.

    You know, it's things like this, that make me wonder about Disney's ability to handle technical issues. Parachute silk getting caught by the wind? Who could have imagined that?

      You would think the curtain would be threaded with cables down doth sides and then weighted at the top so it has no where to go but down- they would still have time to do that.........

        Aw, that sucks. It would have been cool to see the castle revealed in that way. Maybe they'll do something with lights now? Like the castle will be totally dark and then BOOM, tons of new lighting and decorations and stuff? Oh wait...but they'd have to do it in the daytime, in which case, lights would be stupid.

          So that's where the scaffolding went, it was missing the other day!

            You would think weighted curtains, as mentioned above, would easily solve this. I guess better safe than screw up a major event like this.

                      Well, at least they gave it a pre-performance test. How horrible would it have been on May 5th to see the curtain go wacky and start breaking bits off of the castle?

                        Never really thought the idea was a good one anyways.

                        They should have gotten that drawbridge working again and lowered it like on opening day.

                          Disney did the right thing. They tested it and found it didn't work. So they changed their plans. Much better than finding out at the big event and having the press take pictures of a broken castle. They were thinking ahead. Kudos to the event team for avoiding disaster.

                            Maybe they have. Those Disney scalawags are pretty good at coming up with impressive surprises!

                              Each of the two columns on either side of the castle were comprised of two towers fused together. Each of the two towers had rope, which I presumed was for the raising and lowering of the curtain.



                              Sorry to hear that they will not be able to do this now. It seemed like a good idea at the time...
                              Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
                              I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

                                  Couldn't agree more. Hopefully they can come up with some interesting substitute, but anything is better than all the coverage a broken castle would receive.

                                    Couldn't they just put some holes in the curtain to let the wind pass through more? I've seen this alot with banners on stores, etc. Albiet not as secretive as a solid curtain, but more secretive than no curtain at all.
