  • News Grand Marshal Pre-Parade downsizing this weekend.

    If any of you haven't yet seen the "Year of a Million Dreams Pre-Parade," come check it out today or tomorrow -- because that'll be your last chance to see it in its entirety!

    It runs every day at 6:20pm, before the second Parade of Dreams.

    One more reason I'm glad we won this last year! How sad that they are changing it. My kids loved that Bert and Mary Poppins were right there behind us. Bert kept ringing the bell on the firetruck with his cane to make my boys giggle. Loved him! He was so awesome!

          When I was there on Monday and Tuesday they didn't have Mary Poppins,Bert,Tigger,Winnie the Pooh or Eeyor with them anymore.

              I feel pretty indifferent about this, if I feel sorry for anyone, it's the people who win, as they will have less pomp and circumstance. Then again, they get to sleep in Disneyland, so they will be ok.

                I could care less, but part of that reason is costs as always.

                Labor Day is coming and they would probably just as well cut the ceremony short.

                They're doing that to everything else in the park.

                It's even happening a week before Labor Day if you're in stores.

                Bye.

                    That sucks...It's pretty much an insult to the winners.

                      That's too bad that they need to downsize like that. They should at least keep two people holding the banner and two or three characters.

                        Its a shame. Cause the dancers were a simple addition to the pre parade that really classed it up a bit. Personally i would feel a little awkward if I won and had to go down the route in the car by itself without any sort of additional elements. But I'm shy, so that just me.

                          I'm sure the winners will still be excited about their VIP treatment and still wave to everyone while the music is playing... but the extra performers definitely added that extra bit of kinetic energy to the whole thing.

                            Well, Disney doesn't have to give anyone a prize if they don't want, and the paraze isn't really even the prize so...just my opinion

                              Remember, it isn't just labor costs, but also labor availability.

                              Many colleges in the area start classes this Monday, and many CM's are quitting or going to weekend only availability.
