My Disney Videos

Since I've "advertized" my Disney videos in bits and pieces in various forums, I decided to post them all in one single location. At least now, I can remove them from my signature!

Shooting Star - This is the first WDW vacation video that I ever made. It was from our 2003 trip, and was one of my first attempt at video editing and putting things to music.

Crush - Same as above.

Four Seasons - Same as above. All these three videos came in this order on the DVD that I made that I distributed to all the friends that came with us on that 2003 WDW trip. We still get together to view the videos whenever we can and relive that wonderful memories.

Disney Stars and Motor Cars on Parade - The afternoon parade at Disney/MGM Studios. I guess it is official that this parade is going away soon and be replaced with another one. So I'm glad that we were able to get the full video of the parade. BTW, that screaming child you hear in the video is not part of our party, so we had no control in trying to get her to be quiet. :rofl:

SpectroMagic - My first attempt at videotaping an evening parade. It came out OK. This was from 2004. However, try viewing the newer one below.

SpectroMagic 2006 - Videotaped in June 2006. This one was recorded in widescreen. It is viewing the parade from the opposite side to the one earlier, so you get to see the Donald side of the parade this time.

IllumiNations - This is my most favorite night-time show in all of WDW. We have videotaped this at least 4 times, but each one of them had some shortcoming here and there. I decided to release this one because it was the best of the whole lot. Unfortunately (or fortunately), this was filmed in 2005 after the inferno barge caught fire. So this is the version that has more additional fireworks that they inserted to compensate for the missing inferno barge. We intend to try and video tape this again on our next trip, hopefully with a better angle and with the inferno barge. The live sound has been replaced with the actual music of the fireworks.

Illuminations - Reflection of Earth 2006 - Illuminations videotaped in Sept. 2006. This one does have the inferno barge. It also has a better video quality than the earlier version. Both have the original music replacing the live sound.

Osborne Family Spectacle of Lights - This was videotaped during the first week of January 2006. We had so much footage of this event that I decided to compile everything into one video. So here it is. The music was taken from the Holiday Wishes CD.

Disney's Electrical Parade - Videotaped during our Mini Grand Tour of May/June 2006. This was taped at Disney's California Adventure. Note that what appears to be "noise" in the tape is not really inherent to the recording device - we were sitting next to a waterfall!

Country Bears Jamboree - I decided to upload this video during the recent amusing "controversy" on a Disney fan forum which claimed that the Country Bears show was "inappropriate". This was filmed in 2004.

Country Bears Jamboree 2005. A newer version of Country Bears. This one was taped in 2005, has a better video, and is in widescreen.

Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland - Another video from our Mini Grand Tour. I love this ride, and the themeing is a lot more extensive than the one we get at The Magic Kingdom. The video includes shots of the queue line in addition to the full ride.

Thunder Mountain Railroad at The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World - Videotaped in Sept. 2006, this will make a good comparision between the two Thunder Mountains.

Disneyland's 50th Anniversary Re-Dedication Ceremony - One of the main reason for us to visit Disneyland this year as part of our Mini Grand Tour was to not miss the golden anniversary celebration. We felt privilaged to have been able to witness this ceremony and was glad to have captured it on video. This also was taped in May/June 2006.

Wishes - My second most favorite night time show in WDW, but an event that has a lot of significant and fond memories. As with IllumiNations, we had videotaped this many times, but never found one that I was satisfied with until this one. I think we were far back enough to capture the full fireworks show. I'm actually quite pleased with what we end up with, and this is turning into my most favorite video that I've captured so far. Also as with IllumiNations, I've stripped the live sound and replaced it with the actual music.

Expedition Everest - Now we can't have a video compilation of any kind without at least one video of this ride, can we? So here's mine. It's not the best that you can find on the 'net, but it conveys the feeling. We also think we got a good shot at the Yeti at the end.

The Welcome Medley - - This is the "Trolley Song" that is regularly performed on Main Street, USA at The Magic Kingdom. Videotaped in Sept. 2006

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh - The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. Full ride video of the Winnie The Pooh ride. Videotaped in Sept. 2006.

The Many Adventures of Winnie The Pooh, Version 2 - Even though this was videotaped earlier than the first version, I think the picture quality is better. We were also sitting in the front row, so you don't see the heads of the people in front of us.

Jungle Cruise - The full ride video of a popular attraction at The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. It is a much more enjoyable attraction if you have a terrific cruise captain, which was what we had.

Jungle Cruise at Disneyland - The original attraction at Disneyland that was Walt's most favorite ride. Now you can compare the two rides.

Disney Dreams Come True Parade - The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. This is the 3 o'clock parade. Videotaped in Sept. 2006.

The Dumbo Ride at Disneyland
- The delightful ride at Disneyland. Videotaped in June 2006 during their Golden Anniversary celebration, thus the presence of the golden Dumbo.

The Dumbo Ride at Walt Disney World - The same delightful ride, this time at The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. This allows you to compare the two Dumbo Rides at the two different parks.

It's a Small World at Disneyland - Videotaped in June, 2006, this is the original version when compared to the one at Walt Disney World. It includes the opening of the front facade at the end of the video.

It's A Small World at Walt Disney World - Videotaped in September, 2006. This of course is the Magic Kingdom version of this famous attraction.

Primeval Whirl - The fun ride at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Many Disney purists do not like this attraction due to the seemingly-out-of-place theming. Still, it is a fun attraction, especially for the younger guests.

Monorail - A collage of video of the Walt Disney World Monorail. I don't think I've seen something similar to this online. Play it LOUD if you can.

Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade - The afternoon (and only) parade at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Videotaped in June 2007.

HalloWishes - This is the spectacular fireworks show during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party at The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. Videotaped on Oct. 4th, 2007. As with my video of Wishes and Illuminations, I've replaced the live soundtrack with the actual music.

Boo To You Parade - The night parade during Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party. Videotaped on Oct. 4th, 2007.

Epcot 25th Anniversary Celebration - Videotaped on Sept. 30th and Oct. 1st 2007 in participation with Celebration 25 fan group.

The Chinese Acrobats - Videotaped on Oct. 1st, 2007. These are the terrific group of Chinese acrobats performing at the China Pavilion, Epcot's World Showcase.

Music, Magic, and Mayhem - Videotaped on March 1st, 2008. This is the spectacular fireworks show during the Pirate and Princess Party at the Magic Kingdom. The live sound on this version has been replaced by the actual recorded music accompanying the fireworks show.

Music, Magic, and Mayhem (live audio) - Same as above, but with the live sound.

Enchanted Adventures Parade - Videotaped on March 1st, 2008. This is the parade during the Pirate and Princess Party at the Magic Kingdom.

Darby's Birthday - A music video that I made as a memento of our wonderful trip to celebrate our friend's 60th birthday at WDW. This was videotaped Feb. 29-March 2, 2008.

Welcome and Good Morning - the welcome ceremony every morning at The Magic Kingdom, Walt Disney World. This was videotaped on May 5, 2008.

Expedition Pins - Video from the Expedition Pins pin trading event at Coronado Springs and Animal Kingdom. Videotaped on May, 2008.

Pin Trading University - Video from the 2008 Pin Celebration event at the World Showplace at Epcot. Videotaped on Sept. 2008.

Mickey's Jingle Jungle Parade - The holiday parade at Disney's Animal Kingdom. Videotaped in December, 2008.

Holiday Wishes - The fireworks show during Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party at the Magic Kingdom. Videotaped in December, 2008.

There may be more to come in the near future as I edit more videos, and as I videotape more on my next trip. In the meantime, Enjoy!

Just wanted to say thanks for all the work you did to put these videos on the net. The Wishes video is absolutely fantastic.

Since I left my video camera at home (didn't want to drag it around the parks), your videos are a great reminder of what we say.

Please post more :>)

You're very welcome. Glad you like them.

There will be more, especially after my next trip, which will be this coming May/June.
