Your point is on, I'll add that the new drone show does dip a bit into the more "classic" style compared to more recent efforts. This was done mostly to appeal to locals Disney die-hards, as the main goal was to increase foot traffic at DS to appease their high-paying tenants. However, if guest feedback (which they certainly be over-collecting) gave them the right signal, we could potentially see a course correction.

As it stands though, the directive centers on a catchy, upbeat tune, dazzling visual presentation, and lots of characters.

Course correction on a parade? Or your mean where drones go next? Certainly hope they won’t change course on a parade in favor of a MK drone show.

Not sure if you can say, but if this is coming next year I would assume they're probably building the floats right now then?

From what I’ve been gathering on here MK is basically getting PTN, or similar. Of course the question remains if it’s Disneylands, Hong Kong’s or WDWs own set of floats. Hopefully at least the latter and completely different floats.
Paint the Night was great at Disneyland, but it would feel really tired at MK. They deserve their own. If they're going to go through the operational hurdles of having a nighttime parade, they might as well do it right. They don't want another Harmonious. Obviously Paint the Night is NOT Harmonious, but if they don't do a good job with this, it's going to be very frustrating. I guess I'll take what we can get.
