    Re: Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle - Was it a win or lose in your eyes?

    I think this was a very good try and a "win" in terms of first tries. It was very well put together, considering it was only their first year. As long as they learn their lesson, of course, I'm impressed by this year's efforts. :]

    The only thing I think could use changing is, obviously, the side facing Fantasyland. Make the look complete and I'll be happy. The wires, etc. I excuse for now because they will always be at least somewhat visible. It's impossible to make "invisible" wires, even with dyes, etc, but as long as they are invisible to those who do not seek to find the wires, I'm good with them overall. :]

    i think that the castle looks impressive in the daytime, but incredibly jaw dropping at night

    The back of the Castle was, for the most part, covered with snow. The snow just wasn't covered in LEDs.

    Re: Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle - Was it a win or lose in your eyes?

    I voted that I liked it, but I have 3 suggestions on improvements for next year.

    #1. The snow and icicle effects during the day need to be more elaborate and not so *cartoony* looking. I was disappointed and surprised on how the castle looked during the day.

    #2. The effects they used on the castle need to be done throughout the entire castle, and not just in front.

    #3. Like the art drawing they used for this concept, they need to add the Christmas trees in the moat area...those were missed by me!

    Other than that, what Disney did was fabulous! And if you were looking at the front of the castle at night, it was absolutely beautiful. I thought it was a wonderful addition to the holiday make-over.

    ORWEN: Hmmm.... so they ran out of money and couldn't finish the back side of the castle's holiday decor? Well, when I go into a shop and don't have enough money to buy a whole dress, I sure don't come out with just HALF a dress--taking home only the parts of it I could afford at the time. Next time Disney Management should wait until they can afford to decorate the whole thing and then do it right!

    ORDDU: Still, it was good to see that they have some good ideas that may be more fully realized next year.

    ORGOCH: Ya mean there's even gonna' BE a next year? From what I been seein' inside the ol' crystal ball, lately, well....

    Re: Sleeping Beauty's Winter Castle - Was it a win or lose in your eyes?

    Unfortunately I have not been to the park to see the castle in person, but from all the pictures I've seen, I think the castle looks amazing with the snow theme to it. At night it's pretty spectacular with all the lights and I even like the snow during the daytime. However I do whole heartedly agree that the back of the castle facing Fantasyland should be snow themed as well and not left out. I personally would love to see the snow theme come back every year because it adds quite a bit of magic to the whole holiday atmosphere.

    I absolutely loved it.

    The first night I was in the resort, I watched the lighting show from right in front of the castle. The music, the lighting sequence, the snow, it all clicked, and gave me serious goosebumps.

    Good Show Disney! - Now let's expand on it further next year!

    I didn't see it in person, but based on videos and pictures of it, it was a win for me.

    I thought it was wonderful and loved it very much. The work that need to be done is to make it look better during the day. And around back they need to do a better job of hiding the electrical cords. That was a bad show with all those extension cords and connections just hanging around back there. It didn't look safe either. Other than that, at night it was spectacular! I mean really spectacular.
