    Nope just talked to a valet, its opening and finale units in there.

    If it was truly such a failure, I highly, highly doubt it would be going to another park. Truly.
    And if it was truly such a success, it wouldn't have to be pawned off on another park so quickly. Truly.

    Put a parade in there that truly pleases the masses and people will stroll the 100 yards to see it.

    That is the shorthand version it was supposed to be Pixar's Pathetically Predictable Possibly Painful Presumably Posh Prancing Play Parade.

    I stated this. I don't understand why you feel the need to correct everything I say. I work at the Disneyland Resort for parades, I don't tell you where stuff is at Walt Disney World because I don't know this. I do know where the floats are, and which ones are in each warehouse. That is apart of my job. I just don't appreciate when people tell me that I'm wrong about my job when I work there.

    Well, if you see it as "pawned off" then I guess that explains your perspective. Which is fine, but I see it as DCE seeing something that worked and was successful, and utilizing somewhere else, in a park that needs a boost in new entertainment offerings.
    If it wasn't moving, most likely it would end anyway and the new parade would be coming, or it would have just continued in its slightly scaled down form. Or, god forbid, they could have taken it out completely, and not replaced it with anything.
    I guess it is all in how you see it. Truly.

    The marketing of the individual WDW parks hasn't been done in years. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds...

    I would venture to say it is a combination of the two. I see it as the company attempting to run the cheap way out (big surprise) by recycling a semi popular parade instead of the more expensive route of imagining, developing, and creating a brand new guests experience that would be unique to a specific park. Why be creative when you can simply recycle the same idea, slap the Pixar/Disney brand on it and call it a day.

    Re: Pixar Play! Parade coming to DCA in 2008

    I'm excited to see this parade!

    and does it really matter if a name or show/parade has an exclamation point or not?

    If it's that big of a problem why don't you work for Disney and stop complaining about it...

    Auditions have already been set:

    Pixar Play Parade

    Seeking energetic males and females for dancing and character roles in this all-new Disney•Pixar-inspired parade that invites guests to play and dance along with favorite characters from hit films like Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Monsters, Inc., Finding Nemo, The Incredibles, Cars and Ratatouille.

    Requirements:
    • Applicants must be at least 17 years of age and a graduating senior
    • Wear non-restrictive clothing; tennis/dance shoes are required
    • Current Disneyland® Resort Cast Members should bring a completed and approved transfer application
    The auditions are going to be held in the rehearsal hall next to the N-19 building, across from the paint shop.
    December 1, 2007

    Males 8:00 am
    Females 12:00pm

    Disneyland® Resort – Team Disney Anaheim
    700 W. Ball Rd.
    Anaheim, CA

    • Park in the Team Disney parking structure off Ball Road and Cast Place, and proceed to the Security Gate

    • Bring a picture ID to be admitted backstage

    The audition is going to be held in the rehearsal hall next to the N-19 (Entertainment building) across from the 500 Building (Paint Shop). Once you enter backstage and proceed down along TDA and come to a road, make a right and head down. ON your left is N-19 and on your right is the Paint Shop. After passing the N-19 there should be a building on the left. Thats the rehearsal hall.

    Why does it sound so much like it's going to be exactly like Block Party Bash?

    Re: Pixar Play! Parade coming to DCA in 2008

    Because the idea was to showcase the Pixar characters in DCA in their own parade, while the classic Disney family of characters were showcased in Disneyland with Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams. That was the intent with the creation of these parades back for the 50th, so making the next parade for DCA pixar-centric continues that creative direction.
    As for the parade, rumor has it that it will be more in look and feel like POD, just focusing on pixar, with some rumored elements of Mickey's Waterworks parade from HKDL (meaning there may be a water element). again, rumor.
