    A short one.

    Across the Esplanade to Disney IPs Loosely Connected To Whatever Brand We Decide Has Something To Do Or Nothing At All With California Adventure.

    This is the plan in motion now, but I do not have a timeline just yet. MSEP may continue as a seasonal offering, or DL may go back to its pre-2015 schedule of fireworks and Fantasmic (which is pushing hard toward a D23 weekend debut) and MSEP may finally get the dumpster grave it pines for.

    Of course, until Owl City starts blaring over the DCA sound system this could all change.

    Are you saying MSP stays at DL and PTN moves to DCA?

    How will this work with World of Color butting up to the parade route? The show uses the performance corridor for guest staging areas; running a parade through the middle of it would create a bottleneck unlike any Disney has had before, not to mention the issues with scheduling the two against each other in limited summer nighttime hours

    Although I've never heard it cited, I suspect this is part of the reason why WDW's Fantamsic! didn't go into the Magic Kingdom, since SpectroMagic was still relatively new and ran alongside Rivers of America (along with a desire to end the operational issues Sorcery in the Sky created at MGM)

    I also have to wonder how they'll fit the floats under the Red Car wires; several of them seem to be too tall. I always thought they were a shortsighted addition along the performance corridor, especially since they're purely aesthetic

    Not exactly. MSEP can possibly be finally scrapped after August 20th which means that DL will have no nighttime parade while DCA gets one.

    Expect Mack the Truck to be rethemed to Marvel.

    Double Ugh.

    LOL. I think Mack is safe, considering Cars Land and all.

    Makes sense. Hopefully they can strategically time the parade so that guests have to choose between PTN and the fireworks to alleviate some of the crowding at Disneyland. They should do the same with WOC and Fantasmic!!

    I would endorse this if it came to pass.

    I don't think it's a bad idea. Disneyland with Fireworks, F!!, and PTN = you better kiss your loved ones goodbye before attempting to maneuver around the park at that time because you may never see them again.

    Although, I have to say, if they keep MSEP around STILL after this SECOND glow away forever promotion, that's lamer than lame. It's plain dishonest.

    The long parade route at DCA will allow more people to see PTN as well.

    Should @GiveMeTheMusic dare mention this in the it's coming to WDW thread that never died? I think we should have a poll. :)

    It doesn't matter, the crazies will still desperately attempt to use fake evidence to claim PTN will be glowing down our Main Street by the end of this year.

    I have it on reliable sources that Disneyland's management team is now in boxes awaiting shipment to The Magic Kingdom. The OVERLORD!!! Bob "Bobby" Iger has DEMANDED that Disneyland give their management team to Walt Disney World to cut costs EVERYWHURR!! Upcharges all the time, and WDW will be shuttered within the week.

    Or so my source says.
