Not to nitpick, but Tapestry of Nations ran until 2001, then was changed to Tapestry of Dreams, which ran until 2003. I also loved Tapestry of Nations. Dreams was ok, but I liked Nations better. And yes, the music is still used as post-Illuminations music. We have the Tapestry/Illuminations soundtrack and its gotten a lot of play!
This was the reason given after the Tapestry finished in 2000. Personally, I loved the parade and am so glad that some of the music is still part of Illuminations.
