  • [Chat] Parades and such...

    Okay, I'm not trying to attempt to bash this show. However, I will say that it's been horribly reviewed and I'm personally not a fan. I can't help but want to discuss the quality (or possible lack there of) in the original park entertainment. By that I mean shows not based on films. While the fireworks shows are holding their own, Fantasmic! and EP have been around since before the animated films no longer developed into celebratory attractions. Since that stopped, many people have noticed a lack in quality in the shows. Particularly parades. These have been mostly due to music (which in my opinion can be almost insultingly corny in their writing and singing style) and design work in the floats. Those of you who remember The Lion King Celebration and compare that to Celebrate will know the difference I'm trying to stress. That show in particular was so strongly reviewed that upon its discontinuation, it was released on video do to its popularity. The first and only time I know of that happening to a parade. (Electrical perhaps???) Anyway, what do you guys think? Have the shows lost their heart and become 1 dimensional and overly cheesy, or is the lack of new animated films, just draining the creative powers at be from doing anything more? Is that even an excuse? Will Worlds of Wonder reverse this? What's up?

      Meh, I'm not much of a parade person in general, unless there's something really spectacularly, entertainingly different about them.

      But I did love the Lion King Celebration. I still treasure my one home video of that...

        I saw part of Celebrate and refused to watch the rest of the show (if you want to call it that).
        Celebrate looks like a regurgitated Pixar Street Party (or whatever the name was) over in DCA.

        To that end I'd like the Internet community to join me in reminding the Disney company that "it all started with Walt." As you can see below we've created some T-shirts, plus a few simple graphics that you can copy and paste into your websites to let folks know how you feel.
