The Castle of Magical Dreams becomes a canvas, illuminated for the first time with large scale projection mapping technology that highlights and transforms the castle’s features as the narrative unfolds.
Disney characters’ stories play out through projection mapping, water projections, theatrical lighting, lasers, choreographed water fountains, flames, pyrotechnics, and fireworks, all set to classic Disney music set in new arrangements.
“Momentous” combines projection technology with intricately designed lighting and laser effects, pyrotechnics, fireworks effects, flames, and choreographed fountains to tell a story. It’s musical score features new arrangements of familiar Disney tunes, along with an original song created as the theme song for this show, “Love the Memory.”
