To be honest I am not sure where the appropriate forum was for this question so if the mods want to place this somewhere else they are most definitely welcome to do so.
I have recently seen videos of both the Christmas Fantaasy Parade at Disneyland, and the Very Merry Christmas Parade at WDW's Magic Kingdom. Which one is your favorite parade and why? Chances are you have seen WDW's on TV if you have not been there in person.
From what I have seen, both parades IMO are special in their own ways. Both parades are better to be seen at night with all the extra lighting on the floats. But I have to say that I like VMCP a little better. I wish ABC would go back to showing the parade at night-I just think it is better eye-candy.
I like the music soundtrack better because it doesn't loop much, In other words there is not very much repetition going from one uint to the next compared to the Christmas Fantasy where the theme is tweaked and played over again.
Also there is live music in the VMCP with small bands interspersed through the parade (the soldiers, army men, on the castle float, and on the riverboat and the glockenspiel girls at the end-reminds me of when I saw Fantasy On Parade at DL in the 80's).
Please note that the video of VMCP I saw was from last year, so things might have been changed a little. However I like the Holiday costumes at WDW better because they are mostly unchanged from what I saw as a child on TV and at DL (id the gingerbread men, dolls, reindeer).
Even though I like the VMCP better both parades are wonderfully done. I don't mean to knock Christmas Fantasy Parade at all.
What do you think?
