    Parade of the Stars Floats Still Backstage

    I was at TDA today to meet up with this guy named David to view my personnel file for my termination status at the DLR (if you haven't heard, yes I got terminated), but that's another story.

    What I wanted to mention is that while I was driving past the parking structure the TDA people use, I saw the Blue Fairy and Swan float from the old Parade of the Stars. I'm not sure if this was known or not, but I'm throwing it out there.

    yeah they store those floats in the float warehouse -- been there ever since. They moved them out where people can see them because they were making room for to take the Christmas Fantasy floats out onto Main Street for the filming.

    Yes - dldhistory.com even has pictures of the Parade of the Stars floats back there as well, in their backstage photo gallery!

    Had you been a castmember, you probably would have gotten terminated over making this post. Try keeping the magic alive by not discussing the things you see backstage. thanks.

    ^ Any risk I have with the company can't top a "no re-hire status" like I have now BWthespian. I did not disclose any top-secret information, and furthermore the floats could be seen plainly from the road that leads to guest parking. So thanks yourself, next time I'll be less inclined to share.

    actually.. he probably wouldn't because the floats were in plain view.
    If he was referring to something that was backstage and not in plain view, then that would be a problem.
    Anyone driving down Ball Rd and turning their heads as they past Cast Place would have seen those floats that he was talking about.

    OT, but speaking of your mishap over at DCA, where do they serve Root Beer Floats? I didn't see them on the menu. Do you have to special order them?

    If you ask for one at Bur-r-r Bank, we'll- I mean they'll- make you one. If it's not on the menu you see, it's on the touch-screen menu the CMs operate, I know that. If you want, you can make all sorts of nasty combos- one guest wanted chocolate in Sprite, it was so gross, but you can get it if you really want it. Heaven knows I'd never would have gotten in trouble if it had been a chocolate Sprite float!
