    The City of London!

    Ok so we all enjoy the flying over the city of london on peter pan.. but I have always been curious.. do CMs Walks over the city when they need to reach that area? I have always thought of it being a bunch of small lights but I dont think so.. anyone want to give me some insight on the effect?

    Re: The City of London!

    I E-stopped there once and the lights came on. I think they could walk on it. If I remember correctly the lights are not exposed, they are in holes and the city is painted on what looked to be plywood with the few actual models for the taller things. The most interesting thing was that they just used white plastic to make the clouds. It's really rather unimpressive and low tech with the lights on, but it's pretty amazing the effect such simple things can have when they're put together with motion, lighting and sound.
    The Mickey audience is not made up of people; it has no racial, national, political, religious or social differences or affiliations; the Mickey audience is made up of parts of people, of that deathless, precious, ageless, absolutely primitive remnant of something in every world-wracked human being which makes us play with children’s toys and laugh without self-consciousness at silly things, and sing in bathtubs, and dream and believe that our babies are uniquely beautiful. You know…the Mickey in us.

    I wont expose any of the magic but yes we walk on Londontown everyday and numerous times. (Morning walkthrough, closing walkthrough, pyro opening and closing and any downtimes) It doesn't hurt it at all. I actually act like Godzilla when walking through it.

    Some of the best special effects at the resort are done in some of the most decidedly low tech ways. I love when something so simple and so mundane can produce such a magical experience. The night flight over London and over Neverland Island is one of the most amazing sequences on any ride anywhere on Earth.

    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

    Thank you! I'm familiar with the term, I just didn't recognize the spelling.

    That is soo random. I doubt that is there all the time, my guess is a guest put it there. Stupid guests.

    Re: The City of London!

    I gotta admit, when I FINALLY rode Peter Pan for the first time a month or so ago, I wasn't enormously enchanted by the flying-over-London scene...I guess my hopes were pretty high after hearing so much about it. I did, however, love the next scene over Neverland. The star effect is one I'd thought of on my own, and it was great seeing it put to use in such an effective way.
