  • Not Just The Castle Next Year

    I dont know if this has been talked about yet but the plan is to extend the snow effect all the way down main street next year. They havent even finnished the castle yet and they already are planning for next year. I quess the effect must really be cool if they are already going forward with plans for next year.

    Thats awesome. Main Street needs a little extra love for the Holidays.

          If they are going to all this trouble, you'd think they could extend it out, either get started earlier, or keep it going on into the middle of January.

          As it is, this stuff doesn't even go for two months. The days are speeding up, and such a narrow window of time to see it all...

            I think it's a great idea! I'd love to see Main St. decked out in snow as well. It'd really help solidify the idea, especially with the Matterhorn already covered in snow year-round. Does this finally mean we'll be able to see the 50th fireworks as they were originally rumored to be, just reincarnated as Believe?? (Anyone remember those rumors? Where Main St. was supposed to be recovered in fiber optics for additional effects during the new show....)



            The only problem I have is with people referring to the lights as "Costco" lights. Yeah, they're icicle lights, but they're obviously custom designed and are not just randomly bought from a store. Plus, they need 200+ individual channels just to control all the effects for the snow!! It's obviously not an off-the-shelf undertaking going on here.

                Hopefully by next year they would have perfected the icicles by then though

                  That would be pretty cool espically when its "snowing" on Main Street.

                    Hey, maybe for the "Parade of Holiday Dreams" armchair imagineers like me, it'll "snow" during the finale, don't you think?

                      Hmm.

                      I'd think TDA would wait until the poll results come in about the castle this year before they start worrying about how to expand next year.

                        Interesting you say this. The last two weekends there have been surveyors all over the place in the parks. Normally you just see them right as you enter but on Saturday they were all over the place. In Tomorrowland, along Main Street, in Adventureland. Obviously Disney is up to something...

                          I actually wish they would do a snow effect and overlay in Dca's Grizzley peake area.

                          How dificult would it be to add some fake snow blankets in areas of the mountain side as well as several hidden bubble machine sorry snow machines within the trees. The whole grizley peake area could become a really nice center piece for a winter holiday.

                              Well they could use them at Coke corner. It's getting harder and harder to convince people the white stuff on the ground is compliments of pigeons, not snowy weather!

                                I seem to remember an Al update mentioning snow around RoA. Was some time ago.

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

                                  Thats why I think its strange that they are already planning on it for next year withouy seeing how it will go over with the guests. As I have heard it is a done deal and going to happen next year. ( of coures nothing is a done deal untill complete.) Plans are being made to start the work on things for next year right now.

                                      to bad they cant invent a weather altering machine and make it really snow though
