    Talking PP Hotel 4/5/06

    We stayed at the PP hotel with park view on the 5th and from 10pm until about 3am we saw the rehersals for ELP .

    I would have taken pictures, but the little guy was not feeling well and he comes first.

    Did anyone else see this and do you have pictures you can share?

    Thanks,

    Michael

    I have photos from the first night of the return.

    The biggest change, The Disney's Electrical Parade is no longer "A California Classic", but instead is "Presented by Sylvania" on the Drum Float.

    FYI, The Parade of Dreams is also presented by Sylvania, as part of the large deal Disney made with Siemens (Sylvania's parent company), thought there is no audio announcement, nor is there anything on the floats.

    That would be so cool to see. One possibly nice thing about having a hotel right next to a park with no berm...nice clear views in, not like viewing Disneyland or at WDW where ground level is obscured.

    When does the parade run now? I don't see it on the calendar any day this month.

    We stayed at the PP quite a bit during the DCA/DTD construction. We have tons of pics from each visit.

    One of the things that I enjoyed doing was staying up late and watching the action going on with the construction. Yes, they did work in the evenings. And then later on, when testing the rides, they worked very late. I kind of miss those stays...

    I think there are "Presented by Sylvania" signs on both sides of the Mickey Floral on the lead float.

    I saw ELP on Friday night! I was so excited I didn't know it had returned. I'm going to make a few trips this week to get pictures and video.

    I see it in the calendars.. make sure to look at the DCA section

    It's running EVERYDAY for the next 2 weeks (now - April 23).. and then it goes to Friday-Sundays until Summer hours start again (which is around June 16, i believe)

    Oh and at the end of the parades, the announcer man comes on and thanks you for watching the parade. that is when they announce that the parades are "presented by Sylvania, a Siemens company." I personally hate that there are those little signs on the side of the Peter Pan float and the new lights on the drum of EP. It looks ugly on the Peter Pan float and I liked how it said "A California Classic" on the drum before.
