    If it matches the overall rumor, to rotate parades around the parks to keep them fresh (a change in parades about every 2 years), I am ALL for it, after putting up with the Parade of Stars for 5 years before the Parade of Dreams, PLEASE rotate them!!!!!

    Actually.. the rumor says they are cloning the parade.. rather than taking the existing units from DCA... lol but i would expect the other to happen.. if they are bringing it to MGM...

    Well, Block Party Bash is freakin awesome. The Studios' parade always left me with a feeling of "uhhh....that's it?" I mean, it was really cool the first time, but it lost it's luster pretty fast. So i'm all for a new parade there. And there's plenty of room for the Block Party parade stops.

    I'd like to see a parade that is based on the most recent Disney blockbuster film, updated once a year for each movie released. (The biggest release Disney does of the year probably) I think they need to go back to that concept.

    I'm not sure if I like this rumor. Out of the three current parades, I think DMGM's is the best. It really goes well with the park (with all the various Disney & non Disney characters). Being that there isn't a single Pixar attraction in DMGM (except the meet & greets), I don't think it would fit there (and I don't think the format of the show would fit in any of the other 3 parks).

    the parades they did lasted more than a year mainly because of the cost to do them. think about redoing something the calibre of alladin, or toy story annually. The cost would be prohibitive. think about the cost of making floats for each theme. unless you did something like stars and motor cars and just changed out the cars which is what they do now.

    Yes but then we end up with parades like Mulan...which wasn't the greatest Bill. But I agree keeping it movie themed...but a wide range of movies.
    Well this certainly fits in with the rumor of DLP getting "Stars & Motor Cars"...though I have to wonder if someone just read the DLP rumor, saw there was no rumor for WDW and sent one in themselves...we'll see.

    I love Block Party Bash and hate Stars and Cars, so bring the Incredibles and friends on over. BPB is a lot of fun.

    Well putting in a Pixar parade in DMGM would be like having a Pixar attraction in that park, right? Makes sense to me.

    Re: MGM to get a new parade?

    I think that the current parade fits the park, but I am always for new things. I think a totally new parade could be developed with floats. I love the cars, but I want to see floats in a parade too. Floats add magic and prestige to a parade. I think that music performances like the Block Park Bash could be part of it, but just importing another parade is uncreative. We have seen Disney do that so many times. Once a parade gets old, it gets shipped off somewhere. It is just bad show to see a "used" parade. It is like wearing someone else's dirty underwear.
