Let's say DL decides to take the plunge and have a Halloween themed parade next year. I suggest that there be a mix of some of the stuff used at other Disney parks around the world. Here's my take on it:
- Opening: Three of the ghosts based on those at TDLR dressed as Flora, Fauna and Merriweather are on a float reading...here's the title of the parade: MICKEY AND STITCH'S KOOKY NOT SO SPOOKY HALLODREAMS KAVALKADE. The others are surrounding the centerpiece dancing.
- Mickey and Friends with Stitch: Themed in a pumpkin patch, Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald and Daisy are joined by Stitch with DLRP Pumpkin People along side the float dancing.
- Princesses: Ariel (in her mermaid form) in front with the other princesses - Cinderella, Snow White, Aurora, Mulan, Pocohauntas, Jasmine and Belle (if there are others that would be added, they would be here) - surround a Pumpkin Coach with their princes at their side and support characters (The Seven Dwarfs, Fairy Godmother, Sebatsian, et al) along side the float.
- Monsteropolis Power: Monsters Inc stars Mike, Sully and Boo are on this float.
- Scarecrows:Alice in Wonderland, Peter Pan and Pinocchio characters are in a cornfield with dancing scarecrows and crows, the latter borrowed from TDL.
- Villains Jam Session: All the bad guys from the Disney franchise - from The Wicked Queen (or her old hag alter ego) through the most recent entry are in a jam session with Ursula (a holdover from PoD) on percussion. They are joined by the Pink Witch brigade from DLRP.
- Goofy's Candy Company: The finale features Goofy, Chip, Dale, Pluto, Woody, Buzz and Jesse at Goofy's Candy Company factory.
The music would be based on "It's Halloween-O-Ween" from DLRP in a more upbeat fashion while the "Shout and Scream" music from TDL's 2006 events would be used for parade stops.
As always, comments and critiques are welcomed.
