Word from backstage today was that the performers for Disney's Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun! parade were told Mr. Potato Head and Smitty, a fuzzy worker monster from "Monsters Inc.," would be joining the parade.
Could this be an acknowledgment that the on-the-cheap parade, which debuted Jan. 16, just isn't cutting it?
Disney often tinkers with parades and takes guest comments into consideration -- Internet reaction to the Countdown to Fun parade has been particularly negative.
