how does the endless hallway work

Scrims and a mirror.

I’m no artist, but I made you a diagram to illustrate how it works.

As you are looking into the Endless Hallway from your Doom Buggy, you are looking through scrims, which are basically a thin gauze that you can see through when the light is behind them.

At the very back is a mirror, and in front of the mirror is the “floating” candelabra, which is hanging from thin black wires. The back of the candelabra is painted black so that you don’t’ see the reflection as clearly as you otherwise would.

As you look through each scrim, the image that you see gets just a little hazy (the level of haze depends on how long it’s been since the scrims have been cleaned).You then look into the mirror, which reflects the hall back at you, but since the mirror covers the whole area from wall to wall and floor to ceiling, it appears that the hallway continues. You even see the reflections of the hanging light fixtures, which appear to extend down the hallway.

And since you are looking back through the scrims again, the image gets a little less clear. And finally, your Doom Buggy is in the dark, so you don’t see it at all in the reflection. It just looks as if the hallway is disappearing off into the distance.

My Digital Marketing team did a “team blend” (team bonding) at Magic Kingdom today to watch Festival of Fantasy! The goal was to do some snapchat magic for WDW (waltdisneyworld, add it on snapchat yo). Unfortunately, about half way through the parade a big storm hit! The characters and dancers did such a great job smiling through the rain drops, and it made for a wonderful snapchat story.

Merida KILLED it though. She seemed to be absolutely loving the rain and she accomplished the impossible… she got me to smile in a rain storm. Yo go girl.

P.S. Watch the story. Merida blew us a kiss and it made my day.

I can’t even begin to explain the fun my friend Merida had today but I think these pictures do it some justice :)
