The group at Disney was so warm and welcoming and they shut down the entire park for us
between the hours of 8am and 9am to shoot at the front gate, near main castle and also on Splash Mountain. What an amazing experience to walk through Disneyland's Theme park when it's completely empty. You can still hear the echo of the laughter and screams of fun of previous days and you can sense the rush of the crowds that have flown through the main streets.
We had the pleasure of meeting with Mickey. Still debating whether the very talented actor underneath the costume was a girl or a guy. He/she knew hit every beat on the nose and followed directions without every asking any questions. A real pro.
After sitting on Splash Mountain 3 times in a row just to get a POV shot of the drop, I was completely drenched and couldn't wait to get out into the sun and dry up.
At 9:30am the crowds that had been gathering behind the gates were let in, and a flood of people came over us, running toward the castle and populating the park in no time.
We got the footage and completed with post a few weeks ago and the client couldn't be happier!
Thank you Blufish and Taylor Morrison, and also the wonderful team at Disney to make this an unforgettable experience.
