    Re: Preview of the Pixar Play Parade!!!

    I particularly LOVED the Bugs float and the performer's costumes in that unit. They were so colorful and wild and it was really nice to see that they went all out with the costumes. The floats are wonderful and really unexpected!

    Would have loved to have seen a more exciting ending as well. I heard that budgets were the reason they cut the Cars section.

    Didnt like how at the end, the street looked really dirty and messy with the water and the foam everywhere, but at least they had custodians cleaning up right away.

    Great pictures but this parade is a lot better in person. I can't wait to see it in full swing with show stops! (Hey, I found myself in several pictures!)

    Thanks to Fishbulb who made the supreme sacrifice of going to the park this afternoon to cover this parade for MiceChat. It's a tough job, but somebody has to do it!

I will share reserved thoughts on what I saw, but this is in no way a review.

    The parade opened today with Mike from Monsters Inc. tapping a mic and announcing the parade over a loud speaker. The gates between Playhouse Disney and the Sun Plaza opened and a group of Monsters led by Boo danced out leading the parade followed by Roz and a group of brightly colored dancers.

    Folowing them were Sully and Mike on the Monsters Inc. float that sported the name of tthe Pixar Play Parade. The water started squirting here and never seemed to stop.










    The Hazmat dancers


    The Monsters Inc. Float was followed by The Incredibles which began with Mr. Incredible, Mr. Freeze and Elastic Woman on "Hover" crafts followed by Jack Jack atop the Omnidroid from the finale of the film. Occasionally Jack Jack's hair wisp on his head would blaze with fire. Cool effect. More water shot fro =m the Omnidroids claws.

    The Omindroid sprays the audience from his claws



    Next up, from my favorite Pixar movie, the A Bug's Life float and dancers. Again, more water shooting at the crowds, but this time with bubbles.








    Heimlich splits up at one point













    Fiding Nemo then swum up the Performance corridor/Parade route and featured puppet performers like the ones found in the Florida's Disney's Animal Kingdom Musical show along with a float featuring crush.












    A pufferfish done with the umbrella effect





    Then the piest de resistance, Ratatouille float. This one shot water and foam at the audience.






    Remy






















    Foam spews out to the crowds

    Following the rats is the Toy Story float.



    Look out they spit














    Acrobats














    The performance today was concluded with Mater from Cars accompanied by cast members concluding the parade.

    Thoughts on the performance: Overall I felt that this was less obnoxious than Block Party Bash, though it still features re-treads of music that presumably has inexpensive royalty fees.

    The floats were colorful, inventive and bright. The performers were noticably amped and it was infectious. They did a SPECTACULAR JOB of selling the fun and excitement.

    Though this was just a soft opening, I feel that the parade has some great potential and will be a success.

    The parade looks really cool. It seems like all of the squirting water would get annoying though.

    Re: Preview of the Pixar Play Parade!!!

    Hey rex22, by responding to the original message, you caused all of the pictures to display again - an incredible waste of bandwidth and storage space.

    And Duffy, page breaks are different for everyone, based on what they set in their preferences. I break at 50 messages, but some break at 25 and some at 100.

    Just a couple tech notes from a non-micechat official.

    My niece is in this parade. From what I understand there was a float removed because Disney was having nothing but problems with the bubbles. LOVE the Jack Jack, though. And if the parade really is a "soaker", to some, yeah, it will be irritating.

    Do you know if they are just re-working it, fixing the problem, or if it's gone for good? The parade is good, but if feels like it's laking an ending currently (I would guess that was the float that was removed).

    Ok, you are on a roll, Fishy...

    First, the tour of the Dream Suite and now you have scooped the new parade.

    What would we do without you?

    Thanks for the great shots.

    I am not fond of water squirts... I don't expect others to be too thrilled by this either....

    I am not a huge fan of the Pixar stuff and only saw parts of Block Party Bash and thought it was blah. This one looks MUCH better.
