Well, went and saw DEP last night and here are my comments. (FYI - I have seen this parade since 1984 when it was MSEP).
1. Pinocchio floats return - Yea!
2. Tinker bell float (I'm luke warm about it, and why does Tink need to be in a hot air balloon, she can fly for crying out loud!).
3. Last (patriotic float) - Fireworks were re-done quite well.
1. Pixie Dust on other floats (if I could see the WHOLE parade at one time, this effect MAY look nice. It does not, it takes away from the original floats).
2. Music. Disney, you couldn't have left good enough alone, could you?
3. Circus floats are gone. No Dumbo, etc. We knew this was coming, but still; it NEEDS to be there.
4. Blue Fairy GONE. Yep, Gone.
5. Music Oh, I already said that. Well, it needs to be said again.
I have seen this parade for the last time last night (unless friends/family REALLY want to see it later) but I am not wasting my time on it again, sorry. Thanks Disney for ruining this parade for me.
To be fair alot of people DID enjoy it, but I'm old school MSEP and they just pulled the rug out from under me with this version. YUCK!
