    Question Why they don't change the firwork of HKDL???

    Since the opening of the park, the firework hasn't been changed. I think they've better do a new one. What's your opinion?

    They have changed it for Halloween before, but if you look at the history of fireworks in Disneyland theme parks, they tend to run for years, even decades. Therefore it's not unusual for them to change it after only six years.

    Thank u so much....and one more question: Will they use the old parade named "Disney on parade" or the park will have a new one??

    ORWEN: Well, what I wanna' know is how much longer they're gonna' keep celebrating the 5th anniversary of HKDL? Isn't it about time they took down all the pixie dust lights from the castle so Princess Aurora can get her life back in order? I mean, really! There's only so much time you can leave a welcome mat out for a precocious little fairy who's over-stayed her welcome!

    ^ HKDL has already removed the 5th anniversary website, and the Tinker Bell Castle illumination was pre-empted since Christmas and doesn't return after Jan 2.

    One thing I want to know is if they're changing the "5" references in the parade (i.e. Dumbo's float, Mickey's and Minnie's speech.)

    ORWEN: So are you saying they've finally taken down the mess from the castle by now, wali, duckling?

    Not quite yet. There's still the Flights of Fantasy parade scheduled for today and tomorrow.

    Well the park is only 6-7 years old. Florida ran Fantasy in the Sky for 32 years and has run Wishes since 2003. HKDL will probably be keeping those fireworks for a couple years more at least.

    They haven't taken it down yet, and worse they had a horrid color scheme lighting it up last night. Hopefully that'll go away since Christmas is over.

    ^ Yes because the Tinker Bell decor was used during the finale of the nightly Christmas Illumination, it would still be there last night (Jan 2). But I anticipate everything to come down shortly. SirEdge or anyone: if you go back Jan 3 onwards, make sure to check if the parade is also updated without the "5" references.

    Speaking of which, the Chinese New Year site is now up:

    I just realizetowhee I saw the parade today that the 5 with Dumbo is gone. In its place is the Disney D. I'll check my pictugoner rom the parade yesterday if it was the same. I'm guessing that it was. Some of the Christmas decors in IASW were down yesterday. There were no looping Christmas songs mixed with the IASW song. Although IASW is closed for refurbs today until the 19th if I understood the CM properly.

    Looks like Flights of Fantasy is here to stay. Good job, it's a terrific parade. I saw it two days in a row and I didn't get sick of it. I saw the Let It Snow Christmas Parade a year apart and the second time was unbearable.

    I don't have time to update my TR today after all. So here are two pics that I was able to adjust accordingly for posting.

    So the 5th anniversary, officially ended, rather quietly, on Jan. 2, 2012.

    January 2, 2012, Flights of Fantasy 3:30 PM parade.



    January 3, 2012, Flights of Fantasy 3:30 PM parade.



    Accordingly, the other references to "5" were changed to "Ds" like Mickey's.
