Awaken Summer Media Event 2016

This past week we attended the annual 3-day media event at Walt Disney World this time around promoting their "Awaken Summer" campaign with all the new things that are happening on property.

We'll let more of the photos & video do the talking!First off...THE VIDEOS!!!

Having time spend at the parks I was able to get a few different videos, some new stuff, some old stuff, but all super fun!

Here goes...Tree of Life Projection Show. These will be short 4-5 minute segments on the Tree of Life as Animal Kingdom "awakens" at night! The park will be open until 11pm during the summer to feature it's new night time shows, night time safari, Expedition Everest in the dark, and this new show on the Tree of Life:

Rivers of Light preview - This is the show that will be opening in August (from what we understand.) We were given a short presentation of some of the technology being used. This segment comes during the middle of the show:

Big Thunder Mountain in 4K! Who doesn't love Big Thunder? Since we've shot this ride a few other times before, we figured we'd shoot it in a higher HD format this time around! If you have a 4K TV, go watch it directly from our YouTube channel. It looks amazing!

Good morning from the Magic Kingdom!

Time for some Big Thunder. Might as well use my FastPass+ and skip the line!

So great to see the Zootopia characters in the parks!

Yay! I'm official! Picked up my event packet and now it's off to media day land!
