    Question What is happening with Sleeping Beauty Castle's Projectors?

    I don't know if this has already been asked but, What is happening with Sleeping Beauty Castle's Projectors?

    The picture below (from Darkbear's most recent DLR photo update) show the gardens around the castle's moat without the projectors and their boxes.



    The projectors and their boxes are, (from one of my pictures)



    Does anyone know if they're gone for good? Getting upgraded? Or did they just remove the boxes so they could repaint them backstage?

    Thanks!

    Cool question! I have no idea though. I just want to add that the pic with the projectors has much more vibrant plant life then the other picture!

    Probably de-50-izing the projector covers or createing ones that don't have a golden 50th feel to them. That's just my guess. No need to have them for the fireworks when nothing is going on on the castle anyway.

    well, if there is a new show taking place there than they will replace the old gobos (patterns) but Disney destroys all of their lighting every two years to upgrade, besides the lighting they use for the castle is not meant for the 'ecodomes' they are in, hopefully they are getting smaller ones that fit within the water tight and weather proof houseing.

    Somewhat off topic but I noticed the other night from Fantasyland that the back of the castle had some kind of projector on it. It wasn't much of an effect but it looked like they were trying to change the back of the castle back and forth between blue and pink.

    I wish I had a nightlight for pickle browsing...Man i'm tired.

    I bet they are just fixing something or changing a bulb

    I’m HOPING they’re updating the projectors to digital projectors that can produce color and video. Like the 25 (I think) that are used in Disneyland Paris’s fireworks spectacular; Wishes!

    Their projectors look like:



    …and they’re hidden on the roofs of their Main Street,



    …and in the Wishes logo, in front of their hub.





    For anyone who hasn’t seen the show here’s a picture of it:



    I REALLY hope our castle gets these projectors! Think of the possibilities!

    Wow! Very cool, but so reliant on the hub for viewing of show.

    If you have ever watched DLs from Its a Small World they have cartoons and such projected there during many of the sequences. Not sure if they are the same but the images/cartoon projections/ride video projections are pretty cool projected onto the facade of Its a Small World.

    IASW is the only place i have seen the "Remember.." fireworks, and apparently they do have a different set of projections there because everything is set to fit exactly on the shapes of the ride edifice. More people should check out that viewing point... so i can actually go to the Hub and watch the normal view!

    well, the projectors that DLR castle was using were just regular lights with a bulb and pattern and color wheels, it would be nice if they used REAL digital projectors.
