Alas, here I sit with a Fever and the Flu, so this will be short today. Sorry in Advance.

Sleeping Beauty Castle Walk-through to Re-Open this Fall

http://ocresort.freedomblogging.com/...stle/#more-904


In the Maleficent’s Dungeon scene, flickering flames in a dream sequence used the same technology now in the burning city scene on the Pirates of the Caribbean attraction.
Will these original concepts be brought back to the new castle walkthrough?
“Whether it’s old-fashioned technology or something new that hasn’t been designed yet, we want to make it the best that it can be,” Senior Show Designer Chris Merritt said.
“We want to keep the castle good and original, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t bring in something new that’s part of a whole new galaxy. That’s a hint,” said Tony Baxter.
The photo above is an artist’s rendering of one of the scenes that will be on display in the Sleeping Beauty walkthrough expected to open this fall.
And also of interest, Disneyland is planning to buils an Alternative Viewing Room, similar to what is found at the Finding Nemo Submarine Voyage, to allow those guests who can't access the staircases a chance to get to see the exhibit.
