    New 5th Anniversary Parade

    Steve Davison has let the cat out of the bag so to speak during a recent interview with the In the Parks Blog from MiceChat.

    MC: What is your next big project?

    SD: I have three actually. I am working on the 2 new Parades, one for Disneyland and the 5th Anniversary for Hong Kong. On top of that, I am doing an exciting new version of Fantasmic! in the round at Tokyo DisneySea.

    Awesome! Sadly no mention of a 40th Anniversary Parade for the Magic Kingdom

    We were sent over there with the message that only we would defend Disney quality.. We learnt quickly that the Japanese culture speaks to a level of quality that is hard to comprehend. They were all unbelievably skilled and willing to do the right thing.

    Well, yeah. Thats not the best idea especially for a park like Hong Kong Disneyland.

    The park needs a more cohesive daytime parade. Parade of Dreams would have been perfect for this park.

    But more importantly, the park absolute, desperately needs a nighttime show of some sort. I think a new version of Fantillusion with newer technology would be absolutely amazing in the park!

    Re: New 5th Anniversary Parade

    Depending on how good this parade turns out. I may need to drop by Hong Kong for a few days on the next trip out to Tokyo next year. Steve Davison's work is without question outstanding. I just hope Hong Kong Disneyland has given him a decent budget to work with here. Although judging from Mickey's WaterWorks and the Halloween Parade. This park understands what needs to be done to put on a good show.

    But more importantly, the park absolute, desperately needs a nighttime show of some sort.
    The park already has the Disney in the Stars Fireworks Show. Which is performed nightly upon park closing!

    Awesome! Sadly no mention of a 40th Anniversary Parade for the Magic Kingdom
    I was under the impression the Magic Kingdom was going to use Parade of Dreams from Disneyland as the next Parade?

    While the fireworks are nice, yes, they are quite limited, which is why every other Disneyland style park features fireworks and some other form of live nighttime entertainment. I feel that TDL's Fantillusion and Hong Kong Disneyland would be a match made in heaven.

    Nope, the Parade of Dream floats were trashed way back in April/May of 2009.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but Steve did not do C!ASP right?? If he didn't do it, DL should be getting a good new parade!

    Re: New 5th Anniversary Parade

    I wonder if a new proper parade will be enough to get me to go back? Might wait for the rest of the expansion before considering a return trip to HK. Maybe a stopover on the way up to Tokyo?

    You do know TDL's Fantillusion was sent to Paris a few years ago, where it performs in a very edited (read shorter) version than that seen in Tokyo.
    However, I think what they needed to do was send the MSEP to HKDL (now that DCA has WOC) and have a brand new audience see this spectacular (if outdated) little parade. But NO! They had to place it back at WDW.. as competition for Harry Potter. Like sending an ant to fight Goliath!
