[QUOTE=etwtec;954076]anaheimboy can you confirm what I have been hearing as far as the Al lutz article mentioning Parade Of Dreams may return this summer? I then recently heard from a friend there was a 80% chance Parade Of Dreams would return this summer.
I would really like to know whats going on. Some say there is no chance of Parade Of Dreams returning, then I go and hear otherwise. [/QUOTE]
As of now it can still be considered a rumor, but from what I have heard Disney would like to re-fresh Walt Disney’s Parade of Dreams, and starting this summer (starting around June once the summer season picks up) Disney would like to bring back the parade for one showing a day (the one showing being the usual 3:30 first parade showing) and then the evening parade would be the “Celebrate! A Street Party”, as for this parade would shine much better in the evening since it uses a lot of lighting and an evening performance would be much easier on the performers with all the dancing they do - it can get nice and warm down in LA during the summer time and will make it harder on the performers during the first street party showing if POD does indeed not return.
HOWEVER, here is where I am a bit stuck…it seems it would be a very tight fit backstage with all of the POD units and the Celebrate units in the one area behind Main Street, seems like it would cause a nice big traffic jam, IMO. I know they could all fit back there but it still seems like a tight fit to me.
But I always say with Disney anything is possible and I know they would like to being back POD for the summer season since Celebrate! isn’t going over as well as the suits and Imagineers had wanted. If POD were to come back, once the summer season was finished the parade would officially retire as the parks roll into the fall season and gear up for the Holidays.
I guess we will find out what will actually happen! I will ask some friends to see if they have anymore info on this subject and I will report back if I hear anything.
