Last year, Thomas Smith shared an amazing series of light-painting images that our friends in Disney’s Yellow Shoes Department, Matt Stewart and Paul Chase, created using just light pens and a camera. This year, the guys are back with more Fourth of July fun – this time taking their skills to the next level by creating this light-painting video that stars Mickey Mouse.
A lot of amazing work went into creating this – including Matt freehanding designs like the flag and fireworks in mid-air, and Paul snapping more than 200 photos.
Think this is cool? Check out some of their past light-painting contributions in the list below.
Independence Day is a wonderful holiday for families to spend time together and celebrate our nation’s birthday. Fireworks are almost synonymous with July 4, and if you’re planning to bring your kids to the parks for the holiday, you can see some amazing fireworks displays in addition to lots of other patriotic entertainment that will have your little ones saying, “oooh ahhh!”
The Fourth of July is just a day away! From our daily flag retreat ceremony to special Independence Day entertainment, the Disneyland Resort has a variety of traditions that salute America’s heritage.
In honor of our country’s Independence Day one of our designers, Leo Cardoso, created a fun new wall paper. Leo was inspired by the nostalgia of classic Disney. In this design he features two things as patriotic as apple pie – our pal Mickey Mouse and the American flag.
To lots of folks, the Fourth of July is one of the coolest times of the year. There are fireworks, icy cold drinks, fun foods and, of course the spirit of America – a spirit that can take on many forms, from ingenuity and tradition to good old-fashioned belly laughs.
Happy Fourth of July! At Walt Disney World Resort, we have plenty of ways to get a good ol’ fix of Americana.
