4K ride through POV videos Disney

Experience favorite Disney attractions in UltraHD with our new 4K ride through POV videos!

If you are a fan of the theme park news and reviews we share here on the blog, I hope you also frequent our TouringPlans YouTube channel, where we post a steady stream of clips from the Disney and Universal resorts. In case you weren’t familiar with our YouTube channel, now is a perfect time to check it out, because we’ve recently begun uploading new 4K ride through POV videos from Disneyland and Walt Disney World.

These new attraction videos have been recorded on iPhone 6S and 6S+ devices at 3840x2160p 30fps, and uploaded to YouTube at full resolution. If you have a 4K (or UltraHD) television with the proper streaming app or device, or a sufficiently powerful computer with a 4K monitor, you can appreciate the extreme detail of the clips’ native resolution.

Even if you don’t have a 4K device, these new clips should look better than ever however you watch them. On Retina iPad and MacBook displays, the 1440p resolution option looks noticeable better than standard HD, and even the 1080p version should look super-sharp thanks to intelligent down-sampling.

Here’s some of the 4K ride through POV videos we’ve posted so far, starting with a few of our favorite Disneyland dark rides:

After twenty years of warming holiday memories at Walt Disney World’s Disney’s Hollywood Studios, the Osborne Family Spectacle of Dancing Lights has flickered out for the final time. Following a few days extension, the beloved annual tradition was extinguished for the last time ever on January 6, 2016, and we were there to capture the Dancing Lights closing seconds for you in ultra-sharp 4K video.


The last night of the Dancing Lights drew huge crowds to Disney’s Hollywood Studios during the evening. I attempted to park at the theme park around 6:30 p.m., and was redirected to Animal Kingdom instead. The busses arrived for us a a rapid pace, but the detour added at least a half-hour my trip.
