Video Rewind: Point-of-View Videos from Disneyland Resort Attractions

posted on August 4th, 2015 by Erin Glover, Social Media Director, Disneyland Resort


Need to fill that time between your last ride on Big Thunder Mountain Railroad and the next? Miss that view from the front of the Disneyland Resort Monorail? Good news – Shannon, one of our fabulous video pros, has you covered! Take a rewind back to some of the “Point of View” videos she has shared with us over the years here on the Disney Parks Blog.

We captured memorable moments from Big Thunder Mountain Railroad, Matterhorn Bobsleds, Splash Mountain and Space Mountain, and mashed them into one video.

A camera was mounted on the driver’s side of a Radiator Springs Racers car during a test run prior to the 2012 opening of Cars Land at Disney California Adventure park for this special sneak peek of the attraction.

A round-trip ride on the Disneyland Monorail lasts about 15 minutes, but if you’re short on time, this video highlights the highway in the sky with a point of view only visible by a few.

Five cameras traveled aboard the Omnibus to tape the entire trip from the Main Street Train Station to Sleeping Beauty Castle and back again.
