    Exclamation Summer Nightastic! News & Info: Updated 6/5 with Tower of Terror Details

    6/5/10: Twilight Zone Tower of Terror Details

    During SummerNightastic! the Tower of Terror will offer Guests an entirely new drop sequence until August 14th. During this time, the Summer Nightastic! drop sequence is expected to be the only one offered, with the 4 randomly rotating drop sequences returning on August 15th.

    Highlight the section below for a brief description of the new drop sequence based on recent previews:

    {Note: Description may contain information some consider spoilers, do not highlight below if you wish to be completely surprised}

    The new drop sequence starts in the 5th dimension room where the show area has been replaced by star fields on both sides of the ride path. A projection effect has replaced the starfield effect on the doors that open to the drop shaft. The projection effect is a picture of your ride vehicle where the image of the riders (you)fade away to an empty elevator. After the projection effect; the white light beam splits the darkness, the doors open to the drop shaft, and the ride vehicle enters. Once in the drop shaft, a new musical prelude plays before the drop sequence begins. The drop sequence itself features multiple full height drops, the return of the "dead end wall" effect, and a new "green glow" effect when the doors of the drop shaft open to the outside.

    3/2/10: Official Dates

    Thomas Smith, Social Media Director for Disney Parks, has announced that the Disney Nightastic! event is officially scheduled to run June 6 through August 14, 2010.

    2/24/10: Tentative Dates

    2/10/10: Press Release

    Main Street Electrical Parade Lights the Night Again as Walt Disney World Resort Launches ‘Summer Nightastic!’


    Walt Disney World Resort Press Release
    February 10, 2010

    LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. – The “Main Street Electrical Parade” lights up the streets of Magic Kingdom and headlines a season of after-dark excitement coming to Walt Disney World Resort.

    “After the sun goes down, our Walt Disney World parks will light up the night with ‘Summer Nightastic!’, ” announced Meg Crofton, president of Walt Disney World Resort, at a media event Wednesday.

    Disney magic will shine and shimmer in a whole new light. Here’s a look around:

    ~ With floats and characters appearing for the first time at Walt Disney World Resort, Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” returns with its joyous sights and sounds. Direct from Disneyland and marking its first engagement in Florida since 2001, the cherished parade will be led by Tinker Bell waving from the basket of a magical balloon aboard a new float. Pinocchio and Snow White join the parade this summer, aboard bright new floats. Disney’s “Main Street Electrical Parade” is set for its summer-long nighttime premiere in early June at Magic Kingdom.

    ~ The Twilight Zone™ Tower of Terror welcomes “drop-ins” this summer with even more pulse-racing surprises. New lighting effects and the addition of a new drop sequence, created especially for “Summer Nightastic!”, will bring unexpected frights to guests who step into that infamous service elevator. If they dare.

    ~ What could be more summery than fireworks on a star-studded night? Magic Kingdom will treat guests to a special summer fireworks spectacular. The night sky will explode in vivid colors and brilliant visual effects as whimsical music fills the air.

    ~ Other fun! The return of the Sounds Like Summer concert series to Epcot and extended evening hours at Disney’s Animal Kingdom several times a week add up to summer fun as only Disney can do – at all four Walt Disney World theme parks.

    A last mintue trip may be in order.
    Let's stop defending mediocrity out of Disney and hold Disney to the higher standard they set up themselves.

    Question

    Does that mean that it is safe to assume that Spectromagic and Wishes will be starting back after August 14th?

    Potentially yes, but entertainment schedules have yet to even be updated to reflect the Summer Nightastic! offerings.

    It's possible, but new entertainment is more often than not tested only through Cast Previews and not General Public Previews (aka Soft Openings). As we get closer to the start date, the chance of any General Public Previews will be more likley to be known.

    The changes to ToT sound so fun! Why can't they keep it year round- like one side?

    The new effects on ToT sound to me like the ones that have been in place for years at California Adventure.
