    Ariel Float in A Christmas Fantasy

    Just curious, what ever happened to this Ariel float from A Christmas Fantasy? I don't remember seeing it both times I saw the parade last Christmas.

    Well, last year Ariel got legs for the Parade and danced with Prince Eric on the Princess float, so she couldn't be in her Fin on the blocks float. Not sure if it will be the same way this year or not.

    I forget which character replaced Ariel on the toy block, but they also rebuilt those floats..much more glossy fiberglass mold looking that hand fabricated/cut wood.

    Could it be this Woody float? I'm not sure...

    In the past, Woody and Buzz shared one Block float. This past year, Ariel joined Eric and they coupled up with the other Royals, while Buzz and Woody each got their own set of blocks.

    Neither returned calls for comment on the split.

    Woody's and Buzz are new floats from last year. I like it better this way having Ariel with the other Princess and getting to see Eric as well. I hope this year I get a good picture of her in her Teal dress. I could never get good shots of her in that dress. Here are some I'm talking about.







    These are all the ones I got with her and as u can see there not that good.

    Yup. The two old toy block units were scrapped, the drive units still intact in the Disneyland parade annex. The two toy blocks that replaced them were woody riding a wooden horse and buzz riding a rocket ship. Ariel has been added to the Ballroom unit along with Prince Eric.

    Jeez why is Ariel always in human form now? After her grotto becomes Pixie Hollow the only time we'll see her as a mermaid is in Fantasmic! and the POD...sad

    At least until her ride/meet-n-greet opens in DCA in 2 years.

    Our revels now are ended. These our actors, As I foretold you, were all spirits and Are melted into air, into thin air: And, like the baseless fabric of this vision, The cloud-capp'd towers, the gorgeous palaces, The solemn temples, the great globe itself, Yea, all which it inherit, shall dissolve And, like this insubstantial pageant faded, Leave not a rack behind. We are such stuff As dreams are made on, and our little life Is rounded with a sleep. mycroft16 on Twitter

    Well, in some ways I kind of think it stinks that because Ariel is in mermaid form, Eric is often not with her (the only exception I've seen to this is Fantasmic!).

    There will be more changes to the Christmas parade this year with the replacement of another float. Then come next year another one or two floats will be replaced.

    The parade is basically being refreshed yearly so that it does not become stale

    I believe they're getting an entirely new Toy Factory unit, but don't quote me on that.
