    Christmas Parade promoting Magic Bands and FP+

    Anyone watch this? I thought it was pretty much shameless promotion to make NPH and Samantha Brown exclaims to the greatness of this new system, and educate both coasts on it.

    It was BAD! As in, "I'm really not sure Ill trust Samantha Brown again," BAD! They pretty much tried to address the major concerns during
    it to!

    But then again, isn't the entire Disney Parks Christmas Day Parade just a shameless promotion?

    The worst part is they are people who don't have to deal with the real use of them! Do you think NPH used his magic band for his kids to go on Peter Pan 14 times? Nope, he used his magic plaid...

    Re: Christmas Parade promoting Magic Bands and FP+

    After Neil Patrick Harris and his big opening number, I thought that maybe they had actually stepped up the parade this year to what it use to be in the past. Once that Samantha Brown segment came on, I was instantly turned off. That Magic Band/FP+ promotion was incredibly forced, obnoxious and didn't do anything but cause a headache on how much you have to plan a WDW vacation now. Such a shame this is where the company is heading...

    Money talks so they will promote whatever Disney wants them too.

    Was anyone else bothered by the artificially piped in crowd noise during the performances and the parade?!?!

    For those that didn't get a chance to see Neil Patrick Harris' opening song and dance routine, here it is. And Neil did a terrific job at hosting. Finally, they found a suitable replacement for Regis.

    BUT ONE FATAL FLAW in production of this TWO hours special, . . . . . the continual and incessant dubbed in cheering and applause, . . . . . . INCREDULOUSLY ANNOYING! Yes, it was even WORSE than Disney Force placing Samantha's advertisement for the "Magic House Arrest Prison Band" aka "FastPass Plus".

    The dubbed in continual fake Cheering and Applause, was enough for me to mute the special, several times! WHY ON EARTH don't they give it a rest! IT'S LIKE IF EVERYONE ON THE INTERNET WROTE IN CAPITAL LETTERS AND USE EXCLAMATION POINTS ALL ! FREAKING !!! OVER !!!!!!!! THE !!!!!!!!!! PLACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Someone who edited and decided to do that needs to be fired for that reason alone!!!!!!!

    Ok, as mentioned, here is NPH opening song, which was really a great upbeat song!!!




    hahaha!!! Moregumgoplease, I was putting together my post, and attempting to look for the opening number, when you also posted about the annoying non stop fake applause and cheering

    ^ I thought the same exact thing about the dubbed cheering/applause. It wasn't even realistic.

    agreed, canned cheering was way over the top and what they did to "O Holy Night" was inexcusible, although the singer did great. It's not a rock concert song.

    The ads for Auluni, DCA 2.0, and Disney Fantasy seemed longer than the actual parade itself.

    The parade broadcast has been this way for as long as I can remember - a few minutes of parade footage and then the rest is just one big infomercial.

    I'm impressed that they stepped up their game this year with the great opening number, now if they can just make the remaining 95% of the broadcast watchable.

    The Disney company has been promoting its parks on TV shows since before DL existed. Some find this exciting others find it annoying.

    Re: Christmas Parade promoting Magic Bands and FP+

    That was the worst! I attempted to express just how terrible it was to my non-Disney fanatic family and they looked at me like I was crazy.
    The whole segment was like:
    This parade is wonderful and you know what else is wonderful!?! MagicBands with FastPass+, boy did they work really perfect! I love my perfect vacation and it's all thanks to MagicBands! *gag*
