Probably a foregone conclusion, but Disney announced at Destination D23 that Fantasmic! and World of Color will be returning to the Disneyland Resort in 2022.
Main Street Electrical Parade is also returning, but there's already an ongoing thread about that.
I don't know D'Amaro personally (do any of us?), so I can't speak on what he does and doesn't believe behind closed doors. In that regard, you have a point that it's hard to determine where his orders from Chapek end and his own opinions begin.
This is a very good point.
My strong opinions...
According to the-site-that-shall-not-be-named, Bob Chapek will not be appearing at Destination D23 in person due to feared fan backlash.
The $DIS stock has also not been looking that great lately due to the slowdown of Disney+ subscriber growth.
Could this be what it takes to oust Bob Chapek?
also! why do WDW fans want other parks' nighttime parades so badly? get disney to make a brand-new one, one that'll blow all others out of the water
isn't that better than the constant hand-me-downs that WDW has been getting since spectromagic?
not this again.
after the fiasco that was MSEP going to WDW (and coming back to disneyland pretty much in pieces and needing an extensive refurb), i'd be surprised if wdw ever gets a disneyland parade again
plus the reasons why disneyland doesn't run the parade (too expensive) won't magically...
