    My hunch is no but dang, I'd really like to know.
    It seems like DCAs lagoon is much deeper than the Bellagio pond, these fountains probably need to be near the surface which is why they had to build a platform. Just my guess.

    Also, we have to remember that the Bellagio Fountains are just that, fountains. While WoC will incorporate fire and I wouldn't be surprised if that effect the system they use for the water sprouts.

    I wonder if this show will cause Bellagio to upgrade/update their fountain show? It'll be interesting to see what happens after all is said and done.

    I really wonder if Disney will attempt to replicate the effect used in the new Mirage Volcano (choreographed jets of fire) for World of Color.

    I hope they don't, since I think that the jets take the focus off of the star of the show: the fountains/volcano.

    I've heard both, however, I really hope and would think that the face will be in 3-D. I guess we'll have to wait and see.

    The sun had dimension so I can't see why the face wouldn't.

    I think it may be that they have a simmilar capability but the use of them in WoC will be very different. I'm not worried, they have some good designers working on this and I'm sure what ever they do will support the show.
    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.

    The two are totally unrelated. Disneyland's fireworks are amazing but when someone else does better fireworks for a day, Disneyland sure doesn't change them. I don't see your point. The two aren't really even in competition.

    I think he simply means that with the technological advances since the Bellagio show was installed in 1998, they may be interested in some of the capabilities they're creating for this show.

    I guess it's the same that whenever WDE/WDI creates a new fireworks show, they incorporate technologies that have come around since their latest.

    The Bellagio may be looking for a little revamp, just as the Mirage volcano recently underwent.

    I don't know that they will, just trying to interpret.

    I hope the Mickey Head has some dimension. They do seem to be adding a lot of reinforcement to the Wheel to support it's weight and contours. Anyone else think they're just assembling the head off site and will just crane it in one night while nobody's looking?

    If only Walt Disney, himself saw what animals he created.

    Haha. Tis true.

    This thread is quiet tonight.

    Weird.

    having seen the platforms up close in my travels backstage, they are not steel, but some kind of fiberglass, the grates look like plastic. the black and blue tubs are floats, it seems that the entire platform raises and lowers, but from the number of floats I would guess that the scissor lifts don't actually lift the platform, the floats do. The blue floats look like they have water or air connections on them. With the number of fountains it makes sense to use a large platform instead of catwalks. The large black boxes look like they have water tight hatches on the top, so maybe they house equipment that needs to stay dry.

    ^ It's 1:16a my time, and there are 20 members and 38 guests reading.

    And this concept art shows the Mickey will be somewhat dimensional.

    Look carefully at the elevation on the left.
