Space Mountain at Magic Kingdom Park

Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade: Tilt-Shift Video

posted on December 23rd, 2009 by Thomas Smith, Social Media Director, Disney Parks


We’ve already posted some early peeks at the award-winning musical talent and stars appearing at this year’s Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade but here’s one more – and it’s my favorite. It’s the Magic Kingdom turned into “Toyland” using tilt-shift photography:

You can see the entire two-hour televised special nationally in high-definition on December 25 on ABC-TV at 10 a.m. Eastern and 9 a.m. Central, Mountain and Pacific times.

Looks like a nice parade and entertainment, and Iike the tilt shift videos, but did you really need to hide the Partners statue of Walt and MIckey in a pile of boxes?

Even though the parade looks good, I found the fact that the Partners statue was completely covered up truly upsetting.

Awesome as ever! I can’t seem to get enough of this tilt-shift thing.
A thought occurs… with some editing for time, this would make a really different and enjoyable TV commercial!

Agree with Chris, it is really bad show to see the Partners statue all covered up with boxes.

I love these tilt-shift videos . . . and my family is in this one! I was wondering why that camera was hidden in that main street window looking at us. So cool!

Still looking forward to Animal Kingdom!

Wonderful video, looks like it was a lot of fun to film. Can’t wait to see the parade tomorrow.

Any chance we’ll get to see Block Party Bash in tilt shift?

Ah. I watched the time-shifgted recording of the parade. I see they DID use the tilt-shift videos as promos. Maybe next year they can show the tilt-shifts in the weeks beforehand (hint hint grin).

Great parade. Love the view, but it is sad that “Partners” is covered up.

the video is marked Private on YouTube. I’d love to watch it, but I’m being denied now. :(

Why did you change the video to private? It’s not just something to be enjoyed during the holiday season! I want to see it again.

Please bring this back as open to everyone! I didn’t get a chance to do much blog reading over the holidays and I’d love to see this!
