Disney Parks tasked Turtle Transit to design and build a 6’ X 6’ interactive video booth that would live inside the resort’s Pau Hana Community Hall. Turtle Transit faced a number of challenges while designing the booth. The structure needed to be modular so that it could easily travel to Hawaii and require a simple and seamless installation inside the community hall without disrupting guests. The design of the booth also required the same architectural finishes as the community hall. This required Turtle to partner with Disney Aulani’s architectural and production teams to utilize the same finishes and unique accents of the resort’s hall for the design of the booth. From batten walls, paint colors, lighting fixtures, fabrics and carpet, the design of the booth seamlessly integrated with the Pau Hana Room. Turtle installed interactive monitors, a swing arm touch screen, green screen and video camera inside the booth’s structure.
The purpose of the video booth allowed guests to send an interactive digital post card to their friends and family. It also featured a number of exciting activities that guests could participate in like, singing the Aulani Tribute song, virtually swimming with the fish or sliding down one of Aulani’s water slides. Guests were also tasked with answering questions about Aulani and what they enjoyed the most about their stay. The digital postcards could either be emailed to friends or family, or posted via social media on Facebook or through Twitter. Turtle Transit handled all the site logistics, transport and installation of the booth in Hawaii.
