    That was awesome! Thanks for posting that. I was wondering how they were coordinating things. I hadn't thought of the mechanical play and how it would relate to the 3d effect on the screens. Sounds like a cool solution to that problem!

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Thanks for the article. It certainly is interesting to see how complex the whole ride system is.

    To the rider it feels effortless. Good Job Disney!

    Also its good to hear Disney was willing to part with old ways of doing things. They really used a lot of advanced technology to pull of the ride.
