Usually if you want to experience a slice of Disney, you’d have to pack the car and head to Anaheim. Now, for once, a slice of Disney is coming to Las Vegas!
Lighthouse Artspace Las Vegas, a projection mapping experience at The Shops at Crystals (next to Aria), is playing host to “Disney Animation: Immersive Experience” beginning March 30. Families will be able to walk among the Disney Animation classics of past and present.
From The Lion King to Frozen, The Little Mermaid to Encanto and countless others. While the production covers the whole of Disney Animation, note that doesn’t include Disney/Pixar. Those are different productions from different departments, so don’t expect any visits from WALL-E, Woody, Buzz or The Incredibles.
You’ll be able to sing along to Disney favorites while being enveloped in the imagery of that song. Wristbands provided to VIP and Premium ticket holders will glow in different colors to sync up with the show, giving attendees an interactive experience.
What is projection mapping, anyway?
Projection mapping is a process where several projectors sync up to create a seamless image that shines along walls and floors. Lighthouse Immersive, the company behind the experience, has been near the forefront of the technology for a bit now. They were (one of the several) behind the Van Gogh projection experiences nationwide, along with the “Immersive Nutcracker” experience that is running right now.
The event is the first of its kind for Disney. Usually Disney’s appearances in the valley are limited to Feld Entertainment’s Disney On Ice and Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. at TI.
The Disney Las Vegas attraction will be a great event to take the entire family to. Tickets go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. on the Lighthouse Immersive website. The show is expected to run 12 weeks and, if it goes well, far into the future.
