  • [Question] Should they Move the Pixar Parade to Cars Land?

    It does have it's own street route 66 as a main street in Cars Land , is there enough space and lastly would it work, it just seems HL is limiting the pixar parade due to the trolley wires share your opinions!

    It seems like a neat location, but Carsland is going to get FLOODED with people all over the place, making a parade there quite the hassle.

        Actually when the DCA remodel was being discussed, WDI had considered more than one alternate park route for DCA.

        One of those routes was to have the parade come out one of the side roads of carsland then go up route 66 take a left turn and then go thru Paradise Pier. The idea was to keep Buena vista street parade free and then add more landscaping and other smaller structures to the original parade route section between carthay and bugsland. This would have created a lushly landscaped transition from the main hub to bugs land and the rest of the park.

        The problem was that running the parade thru Carsland would have required large parade light poles down route 66 destroying the sitelines of the desert landscape. The lights could not be hidden on roofs of the buildings because most of the carsland buildings sit to far back from the main road. John and other key people were against that.

        Another option that supposedly was considered for the parade kept the route pretty much how it is now but at one point they even considered looping it around grizzly peak and condor flats The parade would have basically gone thru Hollywood then turned into Condor flats and then down grizzly and hard left to paradise pier. This seemed impractical because they would have had to widen large sections of grizzly trail to accommodate turns and parade lighting

          And the clearance of the street light in the middle of Route 66

              I agree /snorefest IMO As far as parades going down the carsland main drag I would only want it to be a Cars themed one. Like a flash mob with the Cars characters.

                There's no parade route backstage gate there. There's a gate that could serve as a parade gate halfway down on Cross Street. However, if they do parades out of Cars Land, then that means half of the Paradise Pier parade route becomes useless, not to mention, the parade would have to make a hard right (or left) at the entrance to the land. The current new parade route is much more guest friendly, as well as show friendly, imo.

                          Seems like a bad location because it is going to be packed this summer maybe in September or something.
