  • Block Party Bash goes to only 2 stops, instead of three, 7 days a week

    Surprised to see the current TIMES GUIDE covering the President's Day Weekend (Friday thru Monday, with DCA open 10 to 10 each day) only listing two stops for the Block Party Bash (Sunshine Plaza and the Bug's Life areas).

    I didn't see anything in the Route 66 area that would prevent a third stop (such as construction).

    So if they have cut back to two stops during a weekend with very large crowds predicted, I doubt that you will see three stops being offered in the future.

    I loved the third stop and I find it hard to believe that during Summer they won't do three. If they don't, then damn that sucks because I loved my usual spot at the third stop.

      Actually there were 3 stops Saturday, and yesterday. I think it's just advertised two stops because the 3rd one will be based on if there's a big enough crowd for it.

      I wouldn't just assume there won't be 3 stops all summer.

          If they are not telling folks that there is a third stop, why offer it???


          Disney is telling folks to only line up at Sunshine Plaza and the Bug's Land area....

            i think they realized that there was enough people when the crowds started lining up so they just decided to extend it... there were people lined up in the 3rd zone as i passed the party in the 2nd zone to warrent a stop...

              Why do an 11:30 (3rd) Fantasmic show when the park is really busy then? It's not advertised so they better *never* do that again! Same difference...

                They annnounce the 11:30 Fantasmic! over the loud speakers, and on things like the Monorail and Train.

                As far as I can tell, the only way people know there is a third stop is by coming across it, no type of announcement....

                  Well there was always enough people at the third stop when I went.. so I have no idea why they are cutting it.

                    That's weird, at Laughingplace.com, they said BPB was changing to having its two stops at Sunshine plaza and Golden Dreams, and skipping the middle section.

                      Gah I'm so confused! I better just plan on seeing the first stop from now on. If I ever want to watch it again *sniffle*

                        Also kind of silly to assume this is going to be 7 days a week all the time now just based on one weekend. They are always changing the schedules and stops. Yes, it is true that the days that Block Party has 2 stops, they will not stop at the Bugs Land area and go straight to Golden Dreams area.

                            Guys, the Times Guide was WRONG.

                            Yes, we've purposely gone down to 2 stops the past month or so because the crowds would be light... but that was only until Presidents' Day Weekend, which is why there were three.

                            And there were plenty of people to have three.

                            But getting back to the point, there will likely be three show stops in the upcoming weekends since Guests are starting to trickle into DCA from the 2fer thing.

                            Personally, the third stop is my favorite, and I wish we could do that one instead of staying down by the Winery (where there is NO room for extra Guests to jump in once we start the show)... and it seems so much nicer to have Screamin' and the Sun Wheel in the background anyway.

                            But it's not up to me, now, is it?

                              If it is not too much trouble, could someone explain the "stop" situation?

                              Although I have been to DCA, that was in Nov 2002.

                              I have only seen Block Party Bash on video. To me it looks like they roll out a bunch of Pixar themed floats and have essentially the same show.

                              What gives with the "stops"?
