Check the below from WDW1974 back in April. He thought most of the BTMRR work can be done during the night shift. (Note post has been cut to just show relevant paragraph)Could it be enough time to add the new effects from Disneyland?
Not sure if I have mentioned it yet, but sometime in the not too distant future Little Mermaid and BTMRR will have the DL upgrades added. I believe BTMRR will come first as much of that can be done at night. Mermaid is likely going down at some slow period next year to get the new ending.
The only alternative to the DL effects were long since switched off because of "safety reasons" (lack of proper maintenance caused the moving scenery to fall on the track apparently). So anything with actual movement is likely going to be considered out of the question by higher management, the only effects they've got to work with are lighting, projections and fog effects. There's only so much you can do with those types of effects to make it work with this particular scene. What other alternative do the imagineers have besides copying the DL effects? Leaving it like it is now isn't acceptable.Why do we always seem to copy what DL does....why not something completely unique instead?
Lighting and smoke machines.Are those projected effects? Very well done if so.
