Odds & Ends, Bits & Pieces...
A lot of you have written in thanking me for the YouTube links in some of my articles. Several of those have asked if I have anymore that they could look at...
There are far too many to list right here and I won't be able to put links to them all, but I thought we'd try and give you a taste of what can be found out there. If everyone likes this we may occasionally do another post with new links. So without much further ado...
Here is a video of the making of Hong Kong Disneyland. It's taken of a screening of the opening, but really fascinating. You can see the anticipation of everyone involved in the project.
This is the train station at Hong Kong Disneyland that someone took video of. It shows you the care and detail that went into the park... even the monorail/train station. Let's not loose sight of the fact that HKDL is greatly detailed, just too small. That's it failing, which will hopefully be remedied shortly(hint, hint).
If you'd just like to get a sense of the atmosphere and detail that can be found in Hong Kong Disneyland, then take a look at this video of Adventureland.
This is a video that shows you what Fantasyland in Hong Kong Disneyland is like.
What a great professional looking video this is of Tokyo DisneySEA. The first few minutes give you a glimpse of the astounding detail that can be found there. The shots of Mysterious Island are one of the reasons it's my favorite part of the park and holds my favorite attraction "Journey To The Center Of The Earth".
Here is a video of a sampling of the parades and entertainment that can be found at the Tokyo Disney Resort... one of my favorites.
The wonderful stage shows at Tokyo DisneySEA are something one should not miss while visiting the park... this here video is a prime example.
Here's a video a group shot of their experience at Tokyo DisneySea that gives you a "guest-view" of the park that is interesting. The video isn't the best, but it's quite nice to experience.
You can see with the advancement in Web 2.0 technologies that there are going to be more and better quality videos like this in the near future. I wouldn't be surprised to start seeing videos of DCA's Makeover in the next few years of the construction progress. It's sites like YouTube and others that are bringing the Disney community together and making the Disney World a smaller, more familiar place for everyone around the globe. The "Convergence" continues...
