    I suspect WDW will hold a specific media event for its 50th--probably in 2020, about a year-out. Perhaps new WDW projects could actually be announced at WDW. Bob doesn't mind coming to FL as long as he can have the BoardWalk gym to himself at 4:30 am.

    Can our insiders squash this rumor? That "site" may have the case of a certain member on here...

    I'm no insider but I can tell you that there's no PTN thread on MC's DL message boards yet today.

    If that means anything

    Because for a while during and after the 50th it was. Now it seems like the tides are turning.

    How about put the parade in Hollywood studios or Epcot. Just in case if it doesn't work in the magic kingdom.It would seem be feasible in HS at some point and the park needs more entertainment to attract more guests, And i wish it should just stay in Disneyland. Because it was made for Disneyland and Disneyland hasn't had a night parade for decades. I hope that PTN leaving isn't true.

    IF Paint really is packed up at DL. That doesn't mean it's coming to WDW! HEA is waay to popular and they can't even run the crappy MISI close to HEAs time much less Paint!

    and i dont think we will be able to see a new light parade for the MK until 2021. If they want to announce it,It will be in announced at a WDW event not D23.

    Unless they plan on pushing MK's closing back to 11 and 12, they have no ability to bring in a night parade. Of course, I expect MK to push hours back to those times anyway (stupid idea to make it 10 and then force-extend all of the CMs for the summer, ugh) so my point is moot if they end up doing so.

    I think it has been confirmed that parades do not work at Epcot all that well or Illuminations is so great, they don't need a nighttime parade. I am going with the latter since it is by far the best FW show (Funny, Illuminations just came on Subsonic Radio on the "staff picks" channel).

    Huh? I have been plenty of times where they were closing at 9 or 10 and had both the parade and fireworks...

    Correct! However that site said that Smart money is on MK. I sure hope its MK!
    Gee, I wish DPB knew what's gong on and tell us! If it's MK, that would be a perfect end to my birthday week!

    my bet is it crossing the pacific... there is a 1st anniversary coming up. Although that park does struggle to stay open late due to its reliance on the cities metro system, which closes pretty early!

    .... then again, there may still be an exclusivity contract for HKDL running PTN.

    If that means what I think......Really? Was that a thing? PTN Soft opened in Sept 2014, Official open was Oct 2014 then, in Jan 2015(granted it was end of Jan)PTN was announced for DL60.

    Asia specific exclusivity. Like they had for Toy Story Land and I believe Shanghai holds something similar for some of its headliners.

    Due to how close the two parks are to each other (literally a 2 hour plane ride), SDL & HKDL have some sort of agreement in place that they can't offer the exact same experiences or the exact same rides in order to encourage travel to both. No way two parks that close to each other offer the same parade. If they really wanted to give it to SDL, they'd move it from HKDL while the park is under construction. Not across the ocean.
