MSEP floats were shipped to New York to promote the opening of Hercules. Some units were sent to Tokyo Disneyland, Disneyland Paris, and mostly to Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom, where an abridged version of the parade ran for two seasons. Most of the floats—the whirly bugs, Pete's dragon, Mr. Smee's boat, the Cinderella canopy were sent back to Anaheim. Even the Snow White mine train unit was returned. The Pinocchio unit was sent to Japan and taken apart after the parade left.

Why were some of the units sent to the overseas resorts? Which brings up another question....why on earth would any of the other units need to go to the overseas resorts? The only parade units currently missing from DEP (that weren't in the final MSEP) are the Dwarves' Mine and the entire Pinocchio collection, which were destroyed years ago.
Glad you have a positive attitude. I know some College Programers who want to be dancers, but missed auditions, and now stuck with the positions they have now until the program is over. But yes, you'll get there eventually... keep trying and stay focused.

Good morning, son
In twenty years from now
Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
And I can tell you 'bout today
And how I picked you up and everything changed
It was pain
Sunny days and rain
I knew you'd feel the same things...
And they were sent to those places to help them create their parades.
I still don't think this is true. According to AllEars.net, their version that ran from 1999-2001 included "26 units portraying nine themes," which include everything in the original electrical parade sans Pinocchio (and possibly the Dwarves' Mine...I haven't been able to find info on it yet). This statistic is also echoed elsewhere, so unless these floats were magically reproduced somewhere along the line, I really don't see how they could've flown across the ocean to help "create their parades" when the floats never left the U.S. in the first place.
