Magic mirror, on the wall…

Disneyland Resort cast members have something new to watch on Cast TV. A new video currently playing on the in-house television network provides employees with more details about the upcoming Tower of Terror ride, scheduled to open next spring in Disney's California Adventure park.

While some cast members are excited to see the popular “E-ticket” ride make its way to the West Coast, others are concerned that the “new” special effects in the California version are going to be underwhelming compared to the Florida original.

A cast member sent us a description of the ride, along with his concerns about some of the new show elements. If you'd rather avoid potential spoilers, skip to the next topic.

To understand his concerns, you must be somewhat familiar with the original Tower of Terror in Walt Disney World. In the Florida version, riders board an elevator in the decrepit and long-abandoned Hollywood Hotel. The car ascends through a first—and normal—shaft, which provides a show as it rises. After reaching the top, the car does something absolutely impossible—it floats forward out of the first “show” shaft and rolls through the “5th dimension” before finally settling into the “drop shaft.” For many riders, this revealing transformation is the best part of the ride, and which totally makes the experience unique and worthwhile. All expectations are shattered and first-time riders have no idea what to expect when the entire elevator car moves forward—something everyone knows is impossible.

According to the cast member, the DCA version completely removes this “impossible” aspect of the ride. DCA's Tower has only one combined show and drop shaft for each of the three pairs of elevator cars, rather than one show (climb) shaft and one drop shaft like the original Tower. Instead, the DCA version has a two-story loading area, located forward of the show/drop shaft.

Let's say that car “A” loads on the lower floor, and car “B” loads on the upper floor. One car is always in the loading area while the other car is in the show shaft. Car A loads up, and moves into the shaft. While car A is moving through the show/drop sequence, car B is filling with passengers. As soon as car A finishes the drop sequence, it returns to its loading area, and car B moves into the shaft to begin its run.

Herein lies the problem. Because the loading area is forward from the shaft, the car must back up into the shaft. This means that the first thing a rider experiences is the elevator car doing something that an elevator car shouldn't do. But as riders will not yet have had the experience of the car functioning like a normal elevator car, this won't seem unusual.

The WDW version takes advantage of the basic assumptions that we have of the world around us, then flouts them to create the ride experience. We all know that elevators go up and down—not forward and back. When the elevator climbs up the shaft, it is functioning in a way we expect. It's only once this “normal” elevator starts to move in a way no elevator should that we wonder what else this car can do—like plunge 13 stories straight down.

The DCA version delivers the punch line—the horizontal motion—without ever establishing the build-up that this is supposed to be a normal, vertical elevator. Several people have expressed their view that this one change will flaw the ride experience in a fundamental way.

Since there is no need to move the cars from one shaft to another, the issue of the 5th dimension becomes one of storytelling rather than operations. The DCA solution uses a special effect known as the “magic mirror.” When the car reaches the top of the shaft, the elevator doors open to reveal a giant mirror, reflecting the real passengers in the elevator car.

This image transforms from an actual reflection to an “aura” created using infrared technology. Said one cast member, “This 'great new effect' has been in use at TestTrack [at Epcot in WDW] for years. Some imagination, huh?“ Then “lightning” will strike the building, the image in the mirror will disappear entirely, the elevator car's cable with “snap,” and the car will drop.

With the ride scheduled to open next year, it's still too soon to pass any judgment on the ride system or the effects. But some are beginning to wonder if Disney's quest to build a more efficient Tower of Terror may have cost the ride its soul.

Security matters

Reader mousecop posted this information to our Mousepad message boards:

"As of August 3 2003, the security department at DLR no longer mans the public access gates of the Disneyland Hotel, Paradise Pier Hotel and the Grand Californian.”

He went on to say that Disney security will not longer be inspecting cars that enter the hotel parking lots, or requiring their drivers to show photo ID.

Over their? No, over there!

When we first ran photos of the newly remodeled Tom Sawyer Island, several readers noticed that one of the signs we photographed had an unintentional typo. We're happy to report that the sign has been corrected.


The new sign would make any spelling teacher proud, as long as she didn't mind the grammatical error “me” instead of “I.” Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

But they just fixed it!

Less than a month after Tom Sawyer Island reopened to the public, the remodeled playground has already lost an attraction: The pontoon bridge is once again closed. According to workers on the Island, the barrels that support the bridge absorb too much water and lose their buoyancy. The bridge may remain closed until it can be replaced entirely, something not likely to happen during this fiscal year.

The Ex-Games


We don't expect there to be any performances tomorrow, either… Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

DCA's big summer X Games promotion is history, and the resort goes back to business as usual this week—which apparently means more budget cuts. After Goofy's Beach Party Bash and Mickey's Detective School closed two weeks ago, Playhouse Disney and Aladdin: A Musical Spectacular are feeling the knife. Playhouse Disney will lose two performances per day, Aladdin drops to three performances most weekdays. Even the bands that perform at the Pacific Wharf and Club Buzz stages are feeling the heat, with some scheduled for shorter sets as summer comes to an end.

The Downtown Disney Walk

Knott's has them, Six Flags has them, Universal has them—why not Disney? Downtown Disney is now home to a fantasy photo booth, where customers can have their smiling mug superimposed onto the cover of a popular magazine, or onto a celebrity body. If the sheer tackiness isn't enough, take a look at all of the non-Disney images available. Who would have expected to see Shrek merchandise sold on Disney property?


These are a great idea, but shouldn't they be in Hollywood? Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

Another new vendor has sprouted in Downtown Disney; this one offering plaster hand-print plaques. The plaques are available in a collection of sizes starting at $20. The plaster dries in just three minutes, making this a quick and lasting souvenir. One smart reader suggested that these should be sold inside DCA's Hollywood Pictures Backlot, where they would fit the Hollywood theme perfectly, as people identify it with the footprints in front of Mann's Chinese Theater.


Someone should make a sign: “Will trade green screen for new ride.” Photo by Adrienne Vincent-Phoenix.

Meanwhile, Disneyland is getting some new technology. A corner of the Premier Shop in Tomorrowland has been decorated with a green screen, which will provide the backdrop for Disneyland photo pins. Now that this store won't be closed to make room for the rumored Buzz Lightyear ride anytime soon, the merchants are making some longer-term plans for the space.

Play 4 Days pass

Southern California residents, (zip codes 90000-93599), can purchase a new four-day ticket for just $79. The ticket is valid for four admissions to either Disneyland or Disney's California Adventure park, between June 1 and September 30, 2003. Residents can purchase just one ticket per person, per day, so your out-of-town relatives will need to buy their own, regular-priced admission.

The tickets can only be used at one park each day—no park hopping. We understand that you can use two admissions—one to each park—on the same day, effectively making this a $79 two-day park-hopper ticket, a $20 discount from the regular adult price.

The tickets can not be used at Disneyland on June 28, and July 4, 5, 26, and August 2, 9, 16, 23, 29, 30, and 31. There are no block-out days for DCA. Tickets are nontransferable, and you must show a valid ID each time. These tickets can be applied towards the cost of a Deluxe or Premium Annual Passport, (but not a Southern California Annual Passport), so long as you upgrade when or before you use the fourth admission.

Disney's Armed Forces Salute

Through Friday, December 19, all active members of the United States military (including Coast Guard and activated National Guard and Reservists) qualify for Disney's Armed Forces Salute and can claim one free 3-day park-hopper tickets. Since the tickets expire on December 19, you must claim them by December 17 to use all three day's worth. The passes can only be claimed at a park gate ticket booth. To claim the passes, valid military ID must be shown; activated National Guard and Reservists must also show their active duty orders.

In addition to the one free pass, each qualifying person can also purchase up to five 3-day companion passes for $39 each. If the qualifying person cannot visit a park to purchase these companion tickets, a spouse may do so instead.

Summer Annual Passholder special

The first ticket promotion this summer is an Annual Passholder special. From May 21 to September 3, APs can purchase a 2-Day Disneyland Resort Park Hopper for $69 (10+) and $49 (3-9).
