    Well, if you see it as "pawned off" then I guess that explains your perspective. Which is fine, but I see it as DCE seeing something that worked and was successful, and utilizing somewhere else, in a park that needs a boost in new entertainment offerings.
    If it wasn't moving, most likely it would end anyway and the new parade would be coming, or it would have just continued in its slightly scaled down form. Or, god forbid, they could have taken it out completely, and not replaced it with anything.
    I guess it is all in how you see it. Truly.

      The marketing of the individual WDW parks hasn't been done in years. It should be interesting to see how this unfolds...

        I would venture to say it is a combination of the two. I see it as the company attempting to run the cheap way out (big surprise) by recycling a semi popular parade instead of the more expensive route of imagining, developing, and creating a brand new guests experience that would be unique to a specific park. Why be creative when you can simply recycle the same idea, slap the Pixar/Disney brand on it and call it a day.

              I'm excited to see this parade!

              and does it really matter if a name or show/parade has an exclamation point or not?

              If it's that big of a problem why don't you work for Disney and stop complaining about it...

                  Why does it sound so much like it's going to be exactly like Block Party Bash?

                    Re: Pixar Play! Parade coming to DCA in 2008

                    Because the idea was to showcase the Pixar characters in DCA in their own parade, while the classic Disney family of characters were showcased in Disneyland with Walt Disney's Parade of Dreams. That was the intent with the creation of these parades back for the 50th, so making the next parade for DCA pixar-centric continues that creative direction.
                    As for the parade, rumor has it that it will be more in look and feel like POD, just focusing on pixar, with some rumored elements of Mickey's Waterworks parade from HKDL (meaning there may be a water element). again, rumor.

                      Does anybody have any concept art for this new parade? I'd love to see some! Thanks in advance!
