Greatest Disney Princesses of all time

Fairy tales are stories which are mostly about how a handsome prince would magically save a helpless princess, and ending up happily ever after. We all know that this never happens in real life and thus we need to tell our children stories which empower them and not give them false hopes about how a prince would come and set them free. It is quite depressing how we teach young minds to wait for someone else to solve their problems when they can take actions on their own. Disney has created many female characters, which are different from the other princesses in the fairy tale stories. These characters have stood up for themselves and fought their own fights. The following are some of such Disney Princesses who genuinely inspire young...

The Projection of the Film-Soarin

The film is projected in IMAX, with high-definition and high-speed OMNIMAX projectors running at 48 frames per second, twice the normal speed. The original concept of attraction, the system itself, was created by Imagineer Mark Summer. The number of guests at each ride is 87. These are taken to a height of more than 12 meters. The overflight of the American natural parks is strictly forbidden. That's why it took film crews several months to get filming rights in Yosemite National Park. The last time a helicopter was allowed to enter the National Park area was more than 50 years ago ... The same problem arose for the Monterey Marine Sanctuary. There is a whole year of administrative procedures and other license applications before finally having the authorizations. During the making of the film, a...

Soarin-An Introduction

The information given above mainly relates, unless otherwise stated, to the version of Disneyworld. The Soarin Attraction 'is a unique experience where you hover over the different landscapes of California. On the schedule for this flight, fly over San Francisco, Monterey Coast, Yosemite National Park, Napa Valley, Lake Tahoe, Palm Springs, San Diego, Anza-Borrego Desert State Park, Los Angeles, Malibu to finish Disneyland California in Anaheim. The attraction lasts 10 minutes, counting the preshow. The flight only lasts 5 minutes. Odors play an important role in the immersion experience. You will smell odors such as orange blossoms, mist, etc etc ... Another important point is music. It was made by one of the greatest film composers, Jerry Goldsmith, already the author of the music of the greatest American films.

During the attraction of the Test Track

During the attraction, you will see 85 signs and make 34 turns. The ride is broken down into 194 zones, allowing you to know where the vehicle is. There is also a system of sensors arranged on the vehicle and under the track. Thus computers know precisely where the vehicle is supposed to be and can make an emergency stop if an anomaly is detected. It should be noted that the vast majority of emergency stops are due to the fact that computers have "lost" the trace of a vehicle. If a minor technical problem appears during the attraction, the vehicle goes into "Automatic cycle out" mode, that is to say that it reduces its speed to go at very low pace (to pace) to the unloading area where a technician will interrogate...

Riding Experience of Vehicles at Test Truck

Each vehicle contains 3 embedded computers. With more than 100 million operations per second, these computers have more computing power than the space shuttle. Even though the chassis is made entirely of composite material, the weight of a vehicle is 2160kg, and the electric motor has a power of 250 horsepower, which is more powerful than the engine of a Chevrolet Blazer . The maximum speed reached by the vehicle during the test is 90km / h, with a engine speed of 6000TPM. During the first tests, it was planned that the vehicles reach a speed of more than 150 km / h. This speed had to be revised down due to technical problems and safety. It takes 8.8 seconds to go from 0 to 90km / h, and each vehicle is equipped with 6...

Vehicles at Test Track

The vehicles are 31, numbered from 2 to 16, and from 18 to 33. The vehicle 17 is no longer in service (see below). Only 29 at a time are used, the remaining two serving as replacements. The hourly capacity is about 1200 vehicles per hour, with a record of 1541 during a Guest Preview day. Each vehicle travels more than 220 kilometers a day. In one year, each vehicle will have traveled more than 80,000 kilometers, which is approximately 4 times the annual mileage traveled by a US driver. This also corresponds to 21 round trip between Orlando and Detroit. Each vehicle has been designed to last over a million and a half kilometers. When looking at the vehicles, you can see 4 wheels. In reality, they are equipped with 22 wheels! The tires were supplied...
