OOOO- Where to start.....
Let me first explain that I was able to walk through this ride with the lights on thanks to a lead that was trying to show off for us (we also got to pull the sword out of the stone, among other fantasyland secrets :) I have always LOVED the effects on this ride and wondered how they were accomplished. I was shocked at how they did it.
The twinkling lights or London and its streets
are simply painted onto the floor, they are not lights as I had always assumed- that affect is accomplished with a black light.
The "clouds" you see
are nothing but clear plastic laid in different places and around buildings.
The "floating stars"
are these very odd looking black wire bushes with lights at the end of them- thats how they look like they are everywhere.
The simplicity of these things is what really amazed me. They are ingenious effects really, especially the stars.
On a more "adult" note, a um, rogue CM has updated the Wendy fig walking the plank to make her, how shall we say this, "anatomically correct." Maybe that's a secret you didn't want to know.........
