When I went to MK in July, my family decided to stay and watch the MSEP that night. Big mistake. The floats are in TERRIBLE condition. The effects are choppy, the lights are too bright, and the music is too soft. When the music started, I was thinking it would gradually get louder as the floats began to roll onto Main Street. I was wrong; the music was soft, and you couldn't even hear each units' soundtrack over the main theme. The lighting effects on the floats need to come back, for the floats used to have some pretty effects when the parade was run at DCA. The Tinker Bell float had none of the effects it had when it was introduced in DCA back in '09. When the Tinker Bell float rolled out, I saw the infrastructure of the float right away without even looking. I even caught a glimpse of the person driving the float! The surrounding buildings were green, and were very, VERY bright. When the pixie dust effect came by, I might as well have worn sunglasses. They do NOT need to be ridiculously bright. Now I don't know about anybody else's experience, but they either need to properly care for and use the floats, or just send it back to CA where they can run the show with no problems.
