    Great update, I agree with Al that the firworks are for the fans, I wonder if non Disneyland fans will get it, or just think "what a rip off, i could of just gotten on the ride!"

    I think in the end the new fireworks show will be one to see a few times then just to hear as you get around the crowds to a short e-ticket line! Will not prove to be as magical as Believe was, or as heartwarming as Fantasy in the sky was.

    I can't wait to see it on 5/28 and 5/29!

    I don't know...Fantasy in the Sky featured ride audio and was popular for years, and it didn't even have these show-stopping firework effects. I couldn't imagine this ever getting old--it's perfect for the 50th.

    Ahhh Yeahh Al
    Way to go with another great update.
    While I'm not one for most parades, this one looks amazing, and I simply can't wait to see that firework tribute.
    Disneyland deserves nothing but best for its 50th.
    Bring on the crowds to pay homage!!!!
    I only hope we never lose sight of one thing... that it was all started by a mouse!

    I think Al is a little too focused on his idea of what the parade should be. He seems to want the parade to be a float-celebration of park rides. While that sounds nice to people who eat and breathe Disneyland, are the kids really interested in it?

    Let's be honest here: No. They'd rather go on said rides than see floats and dancers based on elements of the rides. Instead, the parade focuses on giving the people what they want: The kids get all their favorite movie characters in one long stream of floats, with unique dance offerings to keep the adults entertained.

    I don't know why I'd want to see a Haunted Mansion float when I could just go ride the Haunted Mansion. Especially while the parade draws people away and cuts the line down.

    I know the Firework show is 17 minutes, and by the sounds of it, the parade is going to take quite a while to travel the route.

    Thanks Al for rushing down on short notice to grab these pictures! Wanted to be there, but Girl Scouts comes first! Will see it soon enough!

    Thanks again Al!!!

    The parade is a 5 year thing so you have a LOT of time. The fireworks are also here to stay during the 50th Celebration. Still no word as to what they're going to do during the holiday season... but judging from the initial crowd reaction already from this first day, I think they're going to keep Remember through the holidays.. but that' just my guess!!

    And I agree with MickeyMania -- don't really want to see a Haunted Mansion float. haha!
