  • [Question] Did they run A Christmas Fantasy & POD at THE same time once?

    I was just looking through a website with a bunch of old Disneyland maps & times guides, & I ran into this:


    Did they run both parades during the winter of 2005?

    Well, since it's published, I guess there is no question that they did. I do seem to recall a year or so ago that they were running parades ad nauseum.......

      I do remember when the POD first came out and for the Christmas season they didn't put the reafs [ms] up in Main street. You know the stuff that gose from say The Penny Arcade to the other side. Because the floats as you know are a lot bigger then the Christmas floats. But I really don't remember if they did both POD and ACF in the same month or not they may have.

          Maybe it was just that day, because if i reacall that was it's first year running no?

          Or it could have been for filming it for something, so Disney decide to run it with the other parade.

            Parade of Dreams and A Christmas Fantasy ran together the first winter of the Happiest Homecoming on Earth celebration. Remember, the Parade of Dreams was featured in most 50th Anniversary promotional materials, so Disney made sure the 50th Anniversary offering was available throughout the celebration. Because of the height of the Parade of Dreams floats, some might remember that the Christmas garlands were not present above Main Street in 2005.

            Parade of Dreams did not run during the 2006 Holiday season.

              So it looks like they did run both parades during the 2005 holiday season. I wonder why they don't continue doing so. The Magic Kingdom in Florida runs both Disney Dreams Come True & Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime.

                Well, one reason is that it's probably just easier to have one parade running at Disneyland considering its limited backstage areas. Not to mention the traditional garlands over Main Street are able to be installed when Parade of Dreams is dark.

                  Yeah, that makes sense. Plus a lot of the characters you can see in Parade of Dreams are also in A Christmas Fantasy.

                    During the 50th Holiday season. Believe...In Holiday Magic wasn't run so RDCT could be run during the celebration. They had BPB and DEP running at DCA and they had POD running with Christmas Fantasy. But Parade of Dreams only had 1 run while Christmas had 2.

                    I loved that year so much. I enjoy parades so much and that was so special.

                      We were at the Resort twice during December of '05 and enjoyed both parades in a single day.

                      It was a nice treat!

                      I think that was also the first year for the Reindeer Roundup at the Big Thunder Ranch (though it might have been introduced in '04). Prior to that, Santa took pics on Main St and the kids made the Christmas cookies at the Fire Station.

                      Merry Christmas!

                        good to know this! and nice to know that they saw their promotion that year all the way through so as not to disappoint visitors.

                          what was done in the past doesn't necessarily tell what is happening now. If DL loses PoD in 2009, there is no parade to replace it. Only a short street party.

                            They played RDCT, but with the snow finale for the Holiday Season. Didn't like that much going from the Anniversary fireworks to the Holiday Finale.

                            Oh, I remember those days working it, having three parades a day. They were so tiring. No time for a break in between parades.

                            Correct, the backstage area did't have eough room to stage TWO parades, so that's why they had POD run from Main Street to Small World.

                              It was amusing to see it back there. It was as if PoD was lying in wait every day.
