Tilt-shift video: a day at the Magic Kingdom

John sez, "It's Walt Disney World's 38th anniversary today and the park has released this great tilt-shift video of a day in the lift of the Magic Kingdom. From up here we all look like little toys."

A Model Day At Disney Parks - Exclusive Tilt-Shift Video Featuring Magic Kingdom (Thanks, John!)



  1. Some spots don’t do so well with the effect, but definitely showing up at the park, the mine ride, and the go-karts all looked appropriately toy-like. Night parade not-so-much.

  2. Wow my love of tilt shift majick momentarily overcame my general dislike of Disney! But one of my favorite parts was the parking lot filling up, so it didn’t really depend on the actual “attractions”.

  3. This isn’t tilt shift.

    Tilt shift produces a tight DOF. The top and the botom are just blurred. You can tell from a couple of scenes. Particulary the boat coming towards you at 1:38 and the parade going past with the fountain in the bg but still in the center at 1:55. The flag at 0:48 would not be blurry.

    This is however done very well.

  4. Tilt shift videography is probably the only thing that could make Tomorrowland Speedway look fun and exciting.

    Of course, once you ride it, reality sets in.
