    Disney-MGM Studios does need a new parade & should get one something this year I believe because the Stars & Motor Cars parade is going off to Euro Disneyland. So that leaves MGM off with no parade but what I heard is that the Pixar Block Party Bash from Disney’s California Adventure is coming down to Walt Disney World, but yet I don’t actually know because Disneyland Anaheim only had that parade for about a year & a half & Disney-MGM Studios has had it for over five years. So that’s going to be a quick parade change for California Adventure, but I think MGM could do what they use to do back in the 90’s & that is making parades on movies that just recently came out to theaters like they did with Mulan & Toy Story. That could be good with the new Narnia movie coming out in summer 2008.

    When I was in Disneyland this summer and waiting for a parade, I was talking with a CM who told me that the Main Street Electrical Parade would be moved to MGM. I however, thought this was stupid, as there is no "main street" at MGM. However, it is currently at Disney's California Adventure which also has no "main street." However, if they did send over Disneyland's other parade, I would LOVE it. I don't like the block party bash, but the other one. I don't remember its name. However I have heard numerous times now that MGM's Stars and MotorCars parade is going to go to Euro disney, so we'll just have to wait and see what happens!

    That's right, at DCA it's just Disney's Electrical Parade. It would be nice to see the classic back in Disney World - even if it's not Main Street.
    Please move as far to the end of the row as possible. Stopping in the middle is distinctly unpatriotic!

    I think 1999 but they did some changes with replacing Roger Rabbit to Genie & other things, & it came back in 2001. But other than that a new parade would be extremely nice for the Magic Kingdom for the day & night part of the day!

    There is some truth to the rumor of the Block Party coming to the Disney-MGM Studios, however, they are having problems with the logistics of the parade. DCA has MUCH wider streets than the Studios, and they are VERY wide floats. There has been talk amongst entertainment folk that perhaps the parade will be made into a stage show, since it really is a show on a movable stage anyway. But for now, Stars and Motorcars is here to stay, with the possible addition of some extra units and more characters in the upcoming months.

    I like the Block Party Bash but to me I just think a stage show version is good enough. I'm thinking they could use the B&B stage because I think that show needs to go, sorry if anybody disagrees.
