PoD's opener was called the "Gateway to Dreams" and wasn't biased to one movie, it was smaller than the other floats because it was the opener and it bared the title.
X-mas fantasy. You see not only a small Title float announcing the parade. But you see title floats for all of the scenes in the parade. Previous to that they had banner girls announcing the parade way back when it was a Very Merry Christmas Parade. It had the title.
Let's look at Tinker Bell. Looks to be a huge unit like a PoD unit. Themed to one movie. Doesn't act as a gateway. Why should it lead? Really? Did someone really overlook that?
Some final thoughts for you.
Why on earth is Disney wasting money?? Why do we need Tinker Bell in this parade with a new float? Why do we need Characters in IASW? Usually I would be happy for the additions. I actually like the Tinker Bell float and I don't mind it at all. But why are we wasting all this money for corporate additions and then what do we get from it? Budget cuts cutting our beloved PoD and Fireworks.
It's like we are being punished for someone's wastefulness. How much money did they spend stupifying a perfect attraction? Now there is no money elsewhere because its all been used for a wasteful purpose.
Where is the logic here?
