“But I don’t want you to see [visible show buildings] as liabilities, I want you to see them as badges of merit. Next time you’re at Enchanted Grove, stand there for twenty minutes and watch everyone not seeing the huge blank wall above their heads. Marvel that the illusion still works.
“That’s it, that’s your proof right there of the staying power of the theme parks: there can be huge seams showing—vast expanses of unthemed infrastructure—and everyone looks away just as the designers intended. It’s real magic.”

— Foxxfur, “Go Away Green” 


An excerpt from Foxxy’s new post on her site Passport to Dreams. The post deals with how and why stage magic works so well in the Magic Kingdom and how certain thematic tricks make up for areas that are unseemly and unthemed. I consider it quite an honor to be mentioned in the post, as the two of us have had a rather lengthy twitter conversation about such thematics in the past. Go read it, Foxx’s work is often brilliant and always insightful. :-) 

This is a fantastic article about the things that are hidden in plain sight, and why you usually miss them anyway. Well worth a read.
