    Just because its a Fantasyland dark ride does not make it ineligible for a hologram. Dont be so close minded.

    Re: Pinocchios Daring Journey Lampwick Hologram.

    Ummm guys? It's a hologram. Pinocchio was added in during the 80's refurb, so it does make sense. It's just an old school one...the kind that's just put onto a flat surface, it's not technologicly advanced.

    Ride Warrior and WDITrent...

    I think you guys might be missing the point. The effect in question is NOT the entire character, it is just the mirror he is holding. The mirror has a hologram of HUMAN Lampy, and as he turns around his face reveals that he is now a Jack ***, and we see his ears grow as well (by way of AA effects)

    So we have a combination of a hologram in the mirror, and a finished AA character that are both expertly choreographed to achieve a GREAT illusion and astound us all!

    Should I do the "I was right dance" now? Or would that seem impolite?

    Re: Pinocchios Daring Journey Lampwick Hologram.

    does he ears actually grow? or is it just the angle you approach him at that you can't see the ears to start with?

    I believe the ears are forced perspective.

    It is a hologram in the mirror, and his physical ears mechanically extend as he turns.

    That's it.

    Re: Pinocchios Daring Journey Lampwick Hologram.

    This is cracking me up. My job is usually to go around telling people that what they think is a hologram is actually not. But it is my pleasure to tell you all today that this is indeed a hologram. Disney-fan-reborn and the others are correct. And as I've mentioned before, this is the only hologram that's part of the "show" at Disneyland, at least to my knowledge.

    Holograms are three-dimensional images that are produced by a very careful process involving the splitting of a laser beam and the recording of how it hits the object from two different directions. I don't totally understand why it works, but it does. The result is an image embedded in a sheet of material that, when lit properly, appears truly three-dimensional. If you move your head back and forth, you can see around the corners of the object. It's all there. If you've got a credit card on you right now, take it out. There's a good chance there's a small hologram on it.

    The thing is, holograms usually don't move much, and their colors are difficult to control, and they can't be projected, and they're difficult to create, and the material they're presented on is usually reflective. In the case of Lampwick, it's not an issue - in fact, it was the only way they could do it. Pepper's Ghost would NOT have worked for this effect. But the hologram allows a spookily-colored donkey head [EDIT: sorry, switched the two] to float "behind" the mirror. It's one of the few cases at Disneyland in which holograms are not only practical...but they're the best way to do it.

    And yes, I DEFINITELY would have replied to this yesterday, except I was somewhere else. I'm sure none of you could guess where.
