More photos coming!
OK folks, the newest "event" at Disneyland premiered yesterday. And it is NOT a parade, but for many folks, they will love the "Street Party".
"Celebrate - A Street Party" had its big premiere Friday at 3:30, and will be offered for the next few weeks twice a day at 3:30 and 6:30 PM (On off-seasons weekdays, it will be offered once at 7 PM).
The park was surprisingly busy with Disneyland even closing the Turnstiles around 3 PM for a few minutes due to the large crowds watching the event. Disney was parking at Buzz Lightyear around 2 PM, and they had the Timon Lot Entrance on Harbor Blvd. blocked off.
If you get the local newspaper this morning (Orange County Register), you will see the story on the Front Page...

So let's look at a few highlights....
Yes, TDA was told you WILL attend the parade Friday Afternoon (and that is a GOOD thing), here is Ed Grier joining the rest of the group leaving the Banana Building to check out the new "Street Party".
OK, for the Entertainment Geeks, the "First" photo of the new Non-Parade.
For those who love "Floats", this is NOT the parade (Or Street Event) for you.... This is about as good as you will get!
Heck, at least these "Floats" will have its sign change during the performance.
The main part of this performance are the "show stops", three times, for the first parade of the day, the "small world" Area (Light Magic Platform), the Hub area (Central Plaza) and the central area of Main Street.
Where NOT to watch the Parade, the "Matterhorn Corridor", Basically between the Storybook Canal area to the Castle is not used at all.
Also the Parade does not use the Town Square section, as the "event" now makes a turn at the Magic Shop and goes straight to the Parade Gate, and does not make the full turn by City Hall.
While I am not the biggest fan of the new event, I also know that the CM's that work the "event" work their butts off and we should all thank them for their hard work!
Jeopardy! for $1000, name BOTH Characters.... (And send you answers to Merv Griffin, NOT me
Hey, they placed you in front of the Media "Mosh Pit"
OK, it isn't a "traditional" parade, but it IS High Energy!
Yes, we can say "Eye Candy".... And once again, thanks to ALL the CM's who work hard to prevent the Street Party!
To Spend ALL your money at the Resort, unless you want Sushi! (Can I once again say I am not happy about the Yamabuki closing!)
Some-days, it is just too easy to be a photographer....
Yes, you need to check out the new "event", but don't expect a Parade of Dreams!
See you next week!
