    Exclamation Re: Replacement parade for BPB in January?

    Directly from Disneyland Entertainment Department- BLOCK PARTY BASH IS LEAVING AFTER THE 50TH CELEBRATION HAS CONCLUDED. NO REPLACEMENT PARADE IS SLATED AT THIS TIME.

    For those that are curious- Parade of Dreams was contracted for 5 years. After the 50th Celebration is over, the only thing changing is the music. It will go from "Welcome" to "We are One" from the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland.

    I'm from the inside, you'll just have to believe the info! =)

    Exclamation Re: Replacement parade for BPB in January?

    Oh, they've told us that BPB will be going to the Studios (they haven't decided yet if it will be Paris or Orlando)!

    If only that was enough around here....

    I'm sorry, but 1st post? I mean, welcome to MiceChat and all, but how can we trust you? So many people around here have posted "concrete" evidence, only to have it refuted.

    I have a very hard time believing this post. We've pretty much known around here that POD would be staying long after the celebration is over, but there's absolutely no reason "Welcome" has to be changed to "We are One." Thematically it makes no sense, and neither does it functionally. The only thing that would need to be changed is the Julie Andrews intro that references the 50th, that's it. It would not be easy to switch out the songs either, as "Welcome" is weaved in and out of the parade music at many different spots. We all know how resistant Disneyland is to spending money- why would they put the funds and effort into changing a song that is a large part of this parade for no reason other than to do it?

    Sorry, but it just doesn't make sense to me.

    Yeah... i can pretty much say that the info about POD is bogus.

    However, the BPB info may have some merit. we'll see.

    From everything I've heard BPB is sticking around until about January. The exact time is sketchy, though.

    Re: Replacement parade for BPB in January?

    Sorry, but that info above sounds a bit bogus. Doesn't match anything I was told.

    regardless, there better be a replacement coming sometime within the next year or so.


    And getting rid of Welcome?!!!!! OH GOD, please don't say so. That song is the essence and theme of that whole parade. plus, welcome is the bookends musically to the parade as well, so replacing it wouldn't make sense.
    while 'we are one' is a nice song, it doesn't have the high energy that Welcome has and that is needed for a parade.
    please tell me this bit of info is completely untrue. =)

    and my gold banner routine- please god don't take it away!!!!

    the only way i wont mind letting BPB go is if a bigger and better block party really does come.

    LOL! I have to agree! It's one of the tiny semblances of the classic 80s-90s parades that I wouldn't want to see disappear just yet.
