We had big plans for recording the solar eclipse as it got dark at Walt Disney World. Yes, we knew it was only 85% coverage in Orlando and most of Florida, but Disney was telling cast members that areas of Disney’a Animal Kingdom would close as it got dark in the park, so we were hopeful there’d be something interesting to see.
While we did get a very cool time-lapse video from each Disney World theme park icon at the same time, it didn’t really get very dark. Here’s what we experienced.
Here’s the time-lapse we created. As you can see, you can’t really tell a solar eclipse is happing in the park, but it’s still a cool video of all four parks.
