    Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade

    The 2007 Unofficial Guide makes it sound like the Stars and Motor Cars parade changed in the summer of 2006 to be a little more like DCA's Block Party Bash. Can anyone confirm or refute this? Nowhere else says this and all other resources seem to indicate that the parade is the same as it has been. This would be an awful change for us if so and I am hoping it is not true. Block Party Bash is not a parade and not something our young boys wanted to see. In 2005 the Stars and Motor Cars parade was our kidís favorite and we had to see it several times. If it is anything like Block Party Bash we would probably skip it.

    Re: Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade

    When I saw it back last month it seemed like a regular run of the mill parade to me.

    They had major audio sync issues. The audio was way behind where the parade was at from our vantage point; but it in no way whatsoever resembled Block Party Bash.

    Thanks LOL. It is a run of the mill parade but our young kids love it and they absolutely did not like Block Party Bash when they saw it. It appeared to be an entertaining show but not a parade and not for our kids.

    Nope, still the same old Stars and Motor Cars parade. However, last time I saw it they had taken out the Cars section and put the Grand Marshall car back in instead.

    Re: Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade

    i think what the guide was saying was that it was going to be replaced with block party bash as stars and motorcars was supposed to go to paris. Stars and motorcars was cool in the begginning when they had live announcers at stratigic spots throughout the parade route. I really don't like the canned comments now cause they never sinc up.

    Thats because the parade commentary is "broadcast" from the Brown Derby...so all the sync of talk & parade lines up the closer you are to the Derby.

    That is correct "Gabrielle Huntington and Stone Granite" are broadcasting "live" from the Hollywood Brown Derby. If you are watching the parade from the area in front of the Hat or the Brown derby the "syncing" issues will be correct. Therefore if you are watching the parade on Hollywood Boulevard closer to the Crossroads, then the parade will be out of sync because the announcement you are hearing is what is supposedly happening in front of the Brown Derby.

    personally, i dont care what they do with that attraction. The only attraction i enjoy at MGM is tower of terror. Although i dislike the attraction, i do believe that they will be adding new details to the show .
    P.S. this is post no. 200 for me!

    WHAT I'VE LEARNED FROM MICECHAT...
    1. IF YOU APPRECIATE SOMETHING THAT ISN'T THE MAJORITY OPINION, YOU'RE NOT WANTED HERE.
    2. IF THERE'S CHIPPED PAINT IN THE QUEUE FOR A LINE, EXPECT SOMEONE TO WRITE OUT A BIG STORY BASHING IT. WOOHOO.
    3. IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 24, YOU'RE AN 'EISNER BRAT.'
    4. PEOPLE WHO ARE DEEMED AS 'MODERATORS' AND OTHER ADMINISTRATION ARE MORE IMPORTANT DIETIES THAN JESUS CHRIST.
    5. YOU CAN EXCPECT TO BE BADLY REPPED IF YOU TRY AND MAKE A SERIOUS POINT.
    6. YOU ARENT TAKEN SERIOUS IF YOU'RE UNDER THE AGE OF 16.
    7. AS AN ADD-ON TO #6, YOU SHOULD BE TREATED AS A SUBORDINATEIF YOU ARE IN A THEME PARK WAITING 30 MINUTES IN LINE FOR A DRINK WHILE SOMEONE HAS TO RECOUNT PIZZAS.
    8. "Disney may not care to hear your comments, but we do." WTFFF??? THIS ISN'T A DISNEY FAN FORUM, IT'S A DISNETY BASHING SITE.
    9. CERTAIN PEOPLE OVER ANALYZE A SIMPLE THREAD AND CONSIDER IT TO BE A CONTRACT FULL OF LOOPHOLES THAT HE/SHE CAN GET AROUND.
    AND FINALLY...
    10. PROLONGED USE OF THIS SITE CAN CAUSE AN EXTREME HATE OF DISNEY AND ALL DISNEY RELATED THINGS.
