I woke up this morning to find that Steve Davison, Vice President for Parades and Spectaculars at Walt Disney Imagineering Creative Entertainment, had posted on his Facebook fan page the most amazing photo of Sleeping Beauty’s Castle in Disneyland Paris lit up in an explosion of colour during a testing of Dreams.
The amazing combination of lasers, projections and fountains produce one of the most stunning images that I have seen come out of Disneyland Paris. I’ve tried to steer clear of looking at photos and videos of the Dreams testing, because although I won’t be there myself this year, I intended to watch it via the live stream next Saturday, 31st April, without having anything spoiled for me. However, seeing that photo has actually heightened my anticipation and excitement, and I can’t even begin to imagine what a treat those people who will see it live in Disneyland Park are in for.
On our own Facebook page Xavier Mora posted links to these two videos of the Dreams testing, and these I haven’t seen, so you’ll have to tell me what you think, if you don’t want to wait for the live stream or personal experience.
The French website that will be streaming Dreams next Saturday is here. I’ll be watching and also on Twitter at the same time, so if you are watching to then tag any tweets about Dreams with the hashtag #dlpDreams and I’ll collate all the reactions into an article so everyone can see what people thought of the grandest night time extravaganza Disneyland Paris has ever seen. I believe a Dutch website will also be streaming it but I’ve not found out which one yet, so if you know then please leave a comment with the website address and I’ll update this article.
Just 1 week to go until Dreams becomes a reality.
