    Parade of Dreams DARK for 10 Days in Jan.

    Hey everyone!
    I just got news from my friends in Entertainment!
    The Parade Of Dreams is going to be dark for 10 days in January. The dates are January 17 - January 26. The reason is they are doing street refurbishment. There is no news yet on whether they will have some sort of small cavalcade that will replace the Parade of Dreams for those days. Maybe just the Grand Marshall Pre-Parade? I don't even know where the refurbishment is taking place exactly... just that the parade will be DARK for 10 days. Just a heads up!

    If they are redoing the street, my thougts would be Main Street itself is going to be down for a few days also, that should be interesting!

    The Prince/Princess restrooms near the Matterhorn are slated to go down January third, it might have something to do with that though I doubt it as this refurbishment of the restrooms is supposed to last until March 18. Sounds quite thorough. Lebowski runs through my mind.

    From what I've heard, the construction will be on Main Street. What for, I have no clue.

    Hopefully they'll get the cement dry and woman's heals won't sink in to the ground...

    They may repave the asphualt because it is cracked and uneven in a few places. That is the only reason I can imagine why.

    But I'm glad they will be redoing those princess and prince bathrooms. [smilie=1,32,27]

    Check out pages three and four for pictures of the street refurbs:

    That one set of walls is right in the middle of the parade route(where the floats transition onto Main Street).

    I heard someone speculating about putting some sort of magnetic pucks into the street, like they have at either WDW or TDL. Dunno, I was on my break and wasn't listening to closely. I highly doubt that they're doing a cavalcade, because they need even a few people on guest control for those, and I'm not working until 6:30 for my Sunday GC shift. (I'll probably end up at the Opera House for the first two hours, since the leads aren't even arriving until 8:30 for pyro.)

    I haven't even see all of the parade ... and like Wizard69 said, less crowd control issues.

    Ah, they must be replacing the cracked and broken bricks on the transition from the Hub to Matterhorn Way. The weight of the parade floats has taken its toll on that section of the route.

    maybe they will take advantage of this and do a short look over on each float... that way everything will work when it returns...
