    Yes! MSEP is awesome but imagine what we could come up with today. LEDs, Projection and all the stuff they didn't have then. Pair that with a soundtrack by Daft Punk and we've got perfection!!

    That would be a matter of opinion.

    I would rather see it on Main Street.

    No. Not only is it worn out and a weak replacement for Block Party, but it does nothing for the new reinforced themes of the park.

    No you didn't address it at all. You said it "wouldn't be a problem for most." That doesn't fix the issue, you're just ignoring the problem all together. Its pointless and not economically feasible from an operations standpoint.

    Thats completely a matter of opinion. The phrase "a weak replacement for Block Party" is highly debatable, but MSEP also does nothing to reinforce the themes of the park.

    I dont mean their current songs, but hire them to create an original soundtrack like they did for tron legacy. There was some great music and cool sounds in that movie. Shows they can go outside their comfort zone.

    Bolded part is correct. Some with children may find that the Block Party is fantastic, which I have. Others may think as Darth Maul does.

    Funny thing about opinions....they aren't fact.

    that does not surprise me, one of the reasons that Anaheim had to spend so much money in getting the Electrical Parade back up and running was because the last time it was used at WDW they let it deteriorate and even damaged several of the floats.

    Again, yes I did. I said it could be made as a fall offering. This has happened in the past when the parade came for the xmas season. Again, please read my whole post.

    Second, I stand by my statement about Pixar Play. Electrical is not only more of an old school style play which matches the periods reflected in the revamped park, but it's a California original parade, which is how it was marketed when brought to DCA. Pixar is too modern and only focuses on characters that aren't all that popular. It would be fine if those were lesser known Disney characters, but the Pixar once just don't have the same connection. Incredibles, for instance, has not stood the test of time (and I would argue Monsters hasn't either, despite the sequel coming). Nothing about that is an opinion.

    Opinion

    In general, an opinion is a belief about matters commonly considered to be subjective, i.e., it is based on that which is less than absolutely certain, and is the result of emotion or interpretation of facts.

    The above definition is spot on. One person may view the parade as something that needs to be replaced, however there are others who still flock to the side of the parade route to watch it. Until there is nobody watching any more, those statements are purely opinion

    Parades typically don't enforce the theme of their parks. What did the Lion King, World According to Goofy, 45 Years of Magic, Soundsational, or even the Electrical Parade do for Main Street?

    ORDDU: The parades you mention weren't intended to enhance the theme for Main Street USA but they did have relevance for Adventureland, Fantasyland, Toon Town along with Disneyland as a whole. So, actually, Disneyland DOES traditionally endorse the theme of itself. Sometimes it may focus on just one aspect of a particular land. But there is an obvious tie-in.

    I disagree. Pixar has much more to represent then Electrical. Electrical is classic Disney should be in Disneyland. If you are refering to Buena Vista street, even that isn't Elctrical parade. Electrical parade reflects more like the 70's to 80's not like Buena Vista street.
    Pixar is more DCA; Monsters Inc=There is a ride in DCA. Finding Nemo=there is talking with Crush. toy Story = Toy Story Mania. Also Car's Land and Bug's Land are both Pixar.
    IMO Pixar parade is a much better fit than Electrical parade.

    Yeah. That's what I am afraid of happening to Electrical Parade. I would hate to see that happen to Elliot's float. That is one of the best things in that parade. They might have to change the parade route for that though.

    Overall, I think you're trying to objectify something that is obviously subjective. You want MSEP back, fair. Your support arguments are weak at best.

    I don't see this as a solution just avoiding the problem together. Its like saying a ride only works at night because in the day you'll be able to see backstage material and then saying to only operate the ride at night. MSEP is not a seasonal parade nor was it ever meant to be a seasonal parade.
