Disneyland Paris Low-Light HD Videos by Dan McNeely

I've posted before on D&M many videos of Dan McNeely who do some really good low light videos of Disneyland and WDW rides. Yesterday, Dan sent me an email to let me know that he was back from Disneyland Paris where he filmed several low light videos last week, and here are the first ones he put on line on Youtube!

We'll start by the video of Peter Pan's Flight which include the new projection effects as it was shot last week.

Next is Phantom Manor, and although there is sometime a bit of "noise", overall he did a pretty good job on this one knowing how dark it can be during the ride, .

Dan also filmed the Indiana Jones and the Temple of Peril rollercoaster, this time during day light.

Dan also went to the Walt Disney Studios and filmed the Ratatouille ride.

Last but not least - as Dan will post more DLP videos soon - here is one of WDS Crush Coaster!

Thanks a lot to Dan McNeely and make sure to check the Summer Special Offer for the DLP book which ends tomorrow August 31!

The folks of D23 have posted a great video with Disney Legend and Imagineer Tony Baxter in which Tony shares a great concept of a never realized Mary Poppins attraction that he designed a long time ago, even before he entered Walt Disney Imagineering - still called WED at that time. Don't miss it!

Don't miss too this other video, always about Mary Poppins, in which Disney artist and historian Stacia Martin and Tony Baxter tell how Walt and his staff employed nearly every skill they had learned in filmmaking to produce the movie.
