    New Pixar Parade for the Studios!

    The blog just announced January 1st is the last day for Block Party Bash.

    New Parade Coming to Disney?s Hollywood Studios Disney Parks Blog

    Not much new info, but Remy, Emile, Carl, and Russell will be in the new parade. Also, I've read rumors they are using the Pixar Play Parade music from DCA and the tentative title: Pixar Pals Cavalcade.

    New parade starts January 16. Hopefully it will be completely new!

    Looking forward to hearing more info on this! I read the parade will use the same BPB floats with some new additions, and the soundtrack will be borrowed from the Pixar Play Parade.

    I've been expecting this for a long time, but I'd much rather get something original. Not very exciting for me.

    Sounds like the same parade with a new soundtrack and a couple of new characters... eh.

    Calvalcade usually doens't mean a full parade . . . . at least not to my "Disneyland" influenced dictionary.

    This doesn't bode well.

    Right, I meant to add to my post: I doubt 2 weeks is enough time to really introduce a new parade, but I'm hoping for one.

    But, at least to me, I am glad the music from PPP is coming. That song is INFECTIOUS!

    Countdown to fun....

    I am glad to see BPB go. I was never a fan. Would love to see something to reinforce the theme of the studios (if it still has one).

    That is exactly what I am expecting.

    Removed the trampolines from BPB.

    Replace current Soundtrack with PPP's Sound track.

    Add aforementioned new Pixar Pals.

    No more show stop. If you have ever seen BPB with out a show stop you know that it passes you in like five minutes and hence it will now be called a "Cavalcade".

    Of course, the MK's current 3 o clock whatever also has been so reduced that it is litterally like only 9 minutes long, and they are still calling it a "parade".

    Sigh.

    Finally...BPB was awful. I would rather see a full Parade and not a "cavalcade" like BPB. At least it's not HSM related.

    This looks like declining by degrees to me. They probably want to get rid of the non-union performers that they don't want to pay that do all of the actually interesting things in the parade. However, I can't tell if this is what's going to happen. From what I think and have learned, they are going to try and pass this off as a new parade, with a few different characters here and there and new music in the style of the Share A Dream Come True Parade.

    Which is really a new all-time low.

    I disagree that it was awful. Maybe it just wasn't to your liking, but it had strong production values, large dance troupe, lots of characters, talented acrobats, a wide variety of things to see and "pop up" surprises".

    It was, and for a few more months still is, popular with the guests.

    I agree that this is a a budget cut and also they have been struggling to keep this Very High Energy show going with the Florida heat. "Weather" that's an official reason for the change or not.... IMO it had to be factor.

    Umm, maybe, but if you're thinking of the guys on stilts and the trampolines, they're not Union. They're outsourced performers.

    ORWEN: Oh, well, now that some of you ducklings have described what's REALLY going to replace Block Party Bash, we're not quite so excited. At first we thought it was to be a whole new parade. But what some of you have talked about makes it sound like a watered down calvacade that won't be as good as Block Party Bash. What a let down!!

    ORDDU: At least when DCA replaced THEIR Block Party Bash they did so in style--even though we don't particularly care that they squirt water at you while trying to watch it.
