After Block Party Bash ended its run earlier this year, a new parade, Pixar Pals Countdown To Fun, made its debut yesterday at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. After seeing the parade in person and online, many fans were calling it a disappointment, while others online claimed it was better than Block Party Bash.
The new daily parade uses some of the same floats seen in Block Party Bash. Some others have been repainted. It also features Pixar characters not seen in the former Block Party, such as characters from “Ratatouille” and “Up”. The parade is set to a new soundtrack and also includes “Pixar Pals dancers”. Noticeably missing are characters from “Cars”, “Wall-E” and “Finding Nemo”.
Some cast members from the show have also posted online telling those who don’t like the parade to do something about it by contacting Disney directly.
Are the hard-core Disney fans and bloggers comparing the parade to Block Party Bash too much since some of the floats are reused? Will the casual fan who has never seen Block Party Bash be disappointed by the parade? Is the parade too short?
This video will help you decide for yourself, but we recommend seeing the parade in person if you’re able.
