    It's cute, but not a big fan of it. It just doesn't have the same energy as BPB.

      hard to believe the parade been in DCA for a full year. O.O

              Yeah, the parade was originally planned to include a show stop along with an entire Cars unit. They even created the song mix for it, but it never got used.

                ALong with the show stop, the cars unit there was also a few more Monster Inc units that were cut at the last minute.

                Now one of the best floats, Ratatouille, has also gone missing.

                Also the water effects were toned down from its original design.

                A nicely designed parade was downsized by the folks in TDA hopefeully come summer the ratatouille section returns

                    After filming PPP multiple times last year and through the process of editing the video I became familiar with the cast member faces and even today, its nice to see a lot of the same cast members still out there performing, creating the magic and giving it their all.

                      The units look nice, they ones they still have. It's too bad they have had so many issues plagueing this parade. And it really is too bad the Cars float never made it. The Bubbles are a nice touch, but the water in the parade is just darn annoying. Hopefully they never try another soak'em parade, most people don't watch parades to get wet. The music in the parade is just lame, and it has too short of a loop. It is nice that the Incredible are represented better, that they were in BPB, and I really like Jack Jack. And the Rat. float is very clever, sad that it's not in right now - probably one of those repair thing problems, that have been a continual problem with this entire parade. Not sure why so many problems have continually been hitting PPP

                        I love Play Parade. It's so much fun and I have some great memories with it.

                          I enjoyed this parade back in October. At first I didn't want to wait for it, but sitting on a bench was far too seductive on my tired feet.

                          I covered it in my vacation slideshow. My camera doesn't have a mic, so using the video setting only produces silent avi files, so I always have to overlay music. In this case, I used the Kingdom Orchestra version of Sanctuary from Kingdom Hearts 2. Mine probably isn't nearly as impressive as what was posted in an earlier post though.

                            I'm not a big fan of the parade, but...

                            Whatever decisions were made concerning a parade prior to its debut should not change anyone's opinion of the parade. Just about every parade has things cut in the planning stages due to cost or simply not being feasible. And regarding the "CARS" Unit, it's still there, it just doesn't have its own separate music (except for Mater's lines). Lightning McQueen and Mater were going to be together at the end of the parade and use the "Life is a Highway" music. But it works a lot better the way they are. The actual larger float idea for the CARS Unit was modified a long time ago. And things breaking... it happens in every parade... you simply don't hear about it most of the time.

                              As I mentioned the lack of a sufficient music track for the parade IS something that does make a big difference in the quality of a parade. And parade units going completely missing for extended periods of time, is not typical of Disney parades, but has been typical for this parade. (and yes, issues of other parade floats is often a topic that pops up, and PPP has been getting the attention because of the numerous multiple issues with many of the floats for a variety of issues, and when things go wrong with other parades such as Geppeto breaking, and various other floats getting towed, the Genie Sleigh in the Christmas Parade issues are all talked about as well. But PPP parades problems have been too many to count. And really, it is too new of a parade to have had a record number of problems.) The Waterworks have been an issue with many visitors too, not to mention with the Cast member who perform in the parade. Disney doesn't advertise to complaints, but it gets discussed here. And no, splitting Mater and Lightning McQueen just doesn't work at all. Roz is suppose to be the leader of the parade, It doesn't make scense for Lighting McQueen to lead this parade.

                              That said, it doesn't make for this being a successful parade, not yet, anyway. It still has potential, and floats do look good (when they are functioning - minus the water) and the costumes and performances of the cast members is mostly good. It's just too bad that after a full year - they still haven't got the kinks worked out with the malfunctioning floats.
