Magic? Pixie dust? Pah!:laugh:
Lots and lots of strings of Christmas lights plugged into dimmers that are controlled by a living and breathing lighting designer or a pre programmed sequence, same as The Osbourne Lights.
Ooops, partly wrong answer.
They simply project with the icicles in place, but turned off, same as they do for the fireworks shows.
Remember, the icicles are in place from early November (maybe earlier as they’re not used during Halloween, but it takes a long time to wire up a building that size) until mid January even though they’re turned off on Jan 2.
So even on normal nights when Christmas entertainment isn’t happening, they still have to project all kinds of things on the castle and it isn’t much of a problem because the light strings themselves are as close to the building as possible and therefore don’t make any shadows that can be seen from 40 feet away.
