Sleeping Beauty Castle at Disneyland Paris

Disneyland Paris has celebrated the upcoming Disney Magical Moments Festival by releasing a never-before-seen "tilt-shift" video showing a day in the life of the resort.

The video's release comes ahead of the start of the Disney Magical Moments Festival on April 6, and coincides the ninth anniversary of the opening of the Walt Disney Studios theme park. It was shot using the tilt-shift technique, which uses a sequence of photographs taken using selective focus and perspective control to give the impression of a miniature model.

The video, titled A Magical Day at Disneyland Paris includes sequences shot in both Disneyland Park and Walt Disney Studios. As well as major attractions such as Big Thunder Mountain, Crush's Coaster and RC Racer, it also includes footage of the Fantillusion Parade and the evening fireworks display.

In order to create the video, a total of 125,000 still photographs were taken from high vantage points in the two theme parks over a period of seven months. Only 4,000 of these were used in the final edit.

The Disney Magical Moments festival will see a number of temporary additions at the Disneyland Paris Resort. This includes a range of unique experiences involving Disney characters, such as special meet-and-greets with princesses at Disneyland Park and the addition of Cars character Lightning McQueen to the Moteurs... Action! Stunt Show Spectacular at Walt Disney Studios.
