    WDW Space Mountain Music?

    Are the sound effects / voices from the Space Mountain queue available anywhere? I remember hearing various effects and mission control style voices playing every once in a while in the load station switchback queue area when I rode last month but haven't been able to find them online.

    How their massive HVAC system works?

    Hah, nothing of the sort, actually. I've never lived in the US and have only been able to visit WDW on two trips — in 2015, and in Nov 2023. I've been reading this forum for a long time but actually visiting the parks has encouraged me to post more ;-)

    How their massive HVAC system works?

    Are the greenhouses in The Land pavillion actively chilled, or using some sort of passive cooling setup? All that sunlight must add up to quite a large heat load!

    Screen Projection Technology

    With the exception of the China Pavillion, I believe so.

    Screen Projection Technology

    It's been four years since the last post here; am I right in saying the only WDW attraction still using film projectors is the China Pavillion's Circle-Vision 360° show "Reflections of China"? I haven't been able to visit it personally, but this 3-month-old video of it sure leads me to believe...

    News TRON Lightcycle Run Virtual Queue and Lighting Lane status

    Thanks for these stats! Sharing my luck here. On 18 Nov, I joined boarding group 4 at the 7AM drop, but due to being far away from the park, I would only be able to arrive at 10:10AM when groups 29-39 were being called. My group expired at 8:49AM so I didn't have high hopes of getting in...

    Incandescent lighting frequently used at WDW

    Makes sense, thanks for sharing! Interesting to hear about the differences across the pond. It's not at all common in the UK, I don't recall seeing it in any business in at least a year.

    Incandescent lighting frequently used at WDW

    Absolutely. I don't think I made this clear in my original post but I love incandescent lighting and it was really cool to see these in the wild! (hence the pics I took in the first place). The confusion on my part was in thinking Disney's take on this would be purely rational/economic and the...

    Incandescent lighting frequently used at WDW

    I recently visited WDW for the first time since 2015 and, as a lighting geek, picked up on incandescent lighting being used in many attractions' general areas, queues and load/unload stations. (I'm not talking about the stage lighting in the attractions themselves, just the general-purpose...

    FastPass+ and Dining

    Thank you! A little late response here, but the trip was amazing! All FP+ and dining reservations seemed to be timed perfectly. Interestingly enough, I used the Pirates FP+ around 5 minutes before its window started, and it worked fine – I don't know if that's built into the system or just CM...

    What's this cable between Cindarella Castle and Tomorrowland building

    At WDW today I saw a cable running between the top of Cindarella Castle and a building in/near Tomorrowland. It's rather strange, I contemplated for a second that it could be a zip line, but doubt it. Perhaps it's to do with fireworks. Any ideas? Images attached.

    FastPass+ and Dining

    Awesome, I'll do that then, thanks guys! Also, the fireworks displays – am I right in saying both MK and Epcot have displays on every night? If so will definitely watch. Any tips on good viewing areas which don't require FP+ (as they're used up)?

    FastPass+ and Dining

    Hi all, I'm going to be at WDW with the rest of our family of 4 in late December (20th and 22nd), my first WDW visit from South Africa! I've got the FastPass+ setup but have some questions on the times. Here is the current setup I've got for one of the days, for reference: (I've removed the...

    How their massive HVAC system works?

    Thanks Tom for the response. The size of the Magic Kingdom's plant sure is massive. Do even the smallest attractions / buildings use the central system? Also, would the utilidor system contain the chilled water/steam pipes, or are they buried separately? These are pretty complex questions but...

    Hello from South Africa!

    Hi all! Firstly, this isn't actually my first post as I just posted a question in the WDW secrets section, but it'll do. ;) I live in South Africa, and we're planning a family visit in December to WDW so be sure to hear some more from me in the future, and I'll probably have a few questions too...

    How their massive HVAC system works?

    Hi all, first post as I've been wondering this for ages.. (I hope this is in the right section) WDW occupies a huge area and for the parks and resorts a massive amount of heating and cooling capacity is obviously required! How does their air conditioning / heating system work? I assume they...
