    Ditto. I think it makes the castle more elegant, plus it sets ours apart from HKDL's, which should never have had a clone of our castle built in the first place.

    Ugh. That railing bugs the crap out of me. Witches of Morva, I agree completely!

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    I have never Liked it, when the fiftieth was over I was hoping that it would be removed, but alas no.


    I think it is too frilly, doesn’t fit the medieval look, and ruins the forced perspective (it is too big and out of proportion)

    Pyro setup requirement??? Except for the fact that there is pyro attached to the railing there is no such requirement. I have been a commercial pyrotechnician for over 15 years and knowing many of the pyrotechs at Disneyland.

    I have watched the pyrotechs setting up the show on the castle and the walls are high enough (or the techs are short). Without the railing the walls of the castle appear to be higher than the railings on the Mark Twain. That said I can see no OSHA requirement.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    I'm surprised that some of the complaints about the ornamental
    rail on the castle is the cause for posts, some even among the
    1st posts.

    NOW, if it were a chain link fence, THEN complaints would be
    in order.

    Really? The Mark Twain railings only go up to your knees? Look at this picture I posted earlier in this thread...



    Clearly, the castle walls in the front only go up to the performers knees. They are not higher then the railings as on the Mark Twain. That is a safety hazard for anybody who goes up there.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    Eh, a little bling never hurt. I'm fine with it.

    A little off topic: I seem to remember way back when some herald trumpeters would come out on that ledge and play a cool fanfare for something. Anybody remember what this was for? Maybe a predecessor to Remember?
    I'm literally a born Disney fan! I was born at Providence St. Joseph Med Center right across the street from Disney Studios in Burbank. The same hospital where Walt died.


    By the way my shirt in the pic says "I like big sharks and I cannot lie"

    I believe that was before the Christmas Parade like a pre-show.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    ORWEN: I'm wondering if the performers in the picture up above are standing on a platform to make it just SEEM that the battlements only come up to their knees? It seems that--several years ago--we saw other people standing up there and the battlements came up to their waists and NOT their knees.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    ORWEN: Okay, I just went and found a book that answered my very own question. The book had a picture of the Toy Soldiers from BABES IN TOYLAND standing on the balcony over the main archway into the castle and the battlements came up to their waistlines--except for a couple of them who were at the far right and left. (I wish I could show you the pictures.) But the book was entitled Disney Insider Yearbook in case you have it in your collections and would like to have a look see for yourselves. It looks like two of the soldiers are standing on platforms on the balcony to make them taller, while the rest are standing on the balcony at a normal level.

    Re: 50th railing on castle

    Thanks Morva for looking that up. I will go into the Park tonight and take pictures of the pyrotechs on the castle so all can see how high the walls really are.

    I will also try to photograph the pyro devices which are attached to the railing. Assuming there is a show tonight, as there was no show when I was there Friday due to the Santana winds, and I didn't hear one last night either.
