    One of my favorite parades the Pixar Play Parade returns to DCA after a nearly year and a half hiatus.

    There's more info at the link.

    June 15th is going to be quite the day for DCA.

    Yes it is!

    But Al Lutz is also saying that there will be some surprise appearances of the Pixar Play Parade by early June, with June 15th being the official opening day after a week or two of soft openings.

    From Mr. Lutz recently at Miceage... http://miceage.micechat.com/allutz/al040312a.htm

    In the comments section of the blog post someone asked this as well. Basically no :( which is kinda sad given how long the parade has been out. I was hoping UP would be at least added it seems to fit the "play" them very easily.

    But regardless I'm happy to see the parade return.


    Mousewait is reporting the parade will return on June 1st and has some more details about the changes to the floats.

    One of three press releases from today, this one has a mention of Pixar Play Parade, as well as confirming DCA being home to the longest parade route in a Disney Park.

    Word going around Twitter is that Pixar Play Parade will indeed have a few soft opening performances on June 1st & 2nd, and June 8th. Tower of Terror to Paradise Pier. Just as reported my Mousewait(see above and link below)

    Pixar Play Parade officially returns on June 15th.

    Welcome back Pixar Play Parade! Well for a few soft opening performances.

    [youtube]xmSzgbOdSh0[/youtube]


    Monster Inc.
    Boo is no longer on the floor but a small figure on the top of the float
    Another "monster" dancer has been added

    Incredibles-
    Jack Jack in no longer on top of the float but on an arm
    Violet has been added
    One male dancer has been removed(before 2 arms on the Omnidroid moved)

    The base and the Omnidroid are very different than the previous. It looks like a new float with a similar design or the old one was heavily modified.

    Bugs Life
    An extra female dancer in the back of the float

    Toy Story
    Lotso is gone and Mr. Potato Head took his place the dump truck also has some Hawaiian decorations

    I do wish more Pixar movies could have been added since we lost the Ratatouille float or more Cars would seem like a good fit for this year. With that said though it's great to see DCA's parade route alive again with a parade.
