    Block Party Bash Changing / Leaving ???

    Say it's not true. I read on another website that there will be a new parade at the Studios beginning mid to late January 2011. According to the other website, there will be new floats, it will be a more traditional parade w/o the stops, and the music will be different. I LOVE Block Party Bash!! I'm ok with adding more characters and floats, but I love the music as it is as well as the stops. It's an interactive parade that everyone enjoys.

    I hope it's not true.

    I also saw this announcement, Block Party Bash- final performance will be 1/1/2011. New parade will debut 1/16/2011. 4 new characters will be in the new parade. They will be Remy, Emile from "Ratatouille", Carl and Russell from "Up." I didn't see what format the parade will take.

    Apparently they will be using the music from California's 'Pixar Play Parade'.

    I'm glad, I know others will have other opinions, - Never really cared for the Block Party Bash, should have been a limited thing. It was okay the first time seeing it. I miss the Motor Cars parade, nothing beats a parade at Disney World. This new Pixar parade should be fun, I'm sure along with Remy and company, the CARS characters will be involved too. Can't wait. This is one change I can handle. Let's get rid of American Idol and Drew Carey now! LOL

    I'm not happy about Block Party Bash leaving or being changed. I love it the way it is! I know everyone has their own opinion and that's ok. Not everyone is going to like Block Party Bash. I'm hopeful that Disney will change the parade in a way that will make everyone happy - if that's possible.

    I liked the Motor Cars parade......I wish they would dump the American Idol.....I think it would be really fun to replace AI with a Wipe Out!! course. But, I'm sure their insurance guys would disagree!!!
    It's FALL?!? Already?!?!

    The Green Army Men and the acrobats/gymnists are being removed from the parade, and I've heard the show stops are being removed as well.
