It's called "Welcome to the Magic" and it's a really cool time lapse video shot at Disneyland and DCA by by Matt Givot and Dan Douglas with over 20,000 images shot to show the one and only Disneyland Anaheim. More explanations from the authors:
"In our latest time-lapse showcasing Disneyland and California Adventure, we combined artistry with technology to capture the magic Walt Disney has created. In one afternoon, we used timelapse photography to show some of the enchanting experiences guests from all over the world come to Disneyland to enjoy. The film gives a unique perspective of the colorful lights, moving crowds and entertaining rides.
Our goal was to showcase the magic experienced only at Disneyland Anaheim, showing how Walt Disney’s theme park vision from the 1930’s has become the world’s most popular theme park. We hope you enjoy this glimpse into his magical world.
And now the gear - over 75% of this was shot using the Carl Zeiss 21m f2.8 Distagon T*. It is almost hard to put anything else on the camera after shooting with this glass. Not only is this the sharpest lens we have shot on, It also has some of the best color rendering we have ever seen. In addition to the that glass, another important element was the Formatt Hitech 3.0 Prostop IRND filter. This would allow us to stop the camera 10 stops so we could get natural looking motion blur in the middle of the day."
