Would you give up Happily Ever After for a light Parade?

If someone gave me the option to have a full length Light Parade preferably Spectromagic but they had to scale the firework show all the way back to the 5 minute Fantasy in the sky on select nights I'd take that up.
I really don't care for parades. Never understood why people want to sit in the hot sun for an hour with nothing to do. Constantly fight for your space. Then to see part of a song performed as they walk buy or floats that you have seen over and over. Fireworks!

No reason they can't do both like they used to do. They used to do the night parade twice, with the fireworks in between the parades, like they do for Not So Scary and Very Merry Christmas. Absolutely no reason they couldn't do that again, or even one night parade.

if they had a parade. I really wish they would bring a night parade back.
And a parade at Studios again...
And a parade at Animal Kingdom again...
and... ahh, nevermind. There I go dreaming...

How about simply giving up all the day time parades for one night time parade... I don't think I can remember the last time I was even willing to waste my time on a daytime parade.

You do realize that "light parades" happen at night when there is no hot sun to sit under right? I agree with not wanting to sit in the hot sun for a parade or anything else for that matter... of course I'm also not sure about their being a big difference between a light parade and fireworks when it comes to something you've seen over and over. I've seen the fireworks so many times I could stand there and tell you what was going to come next and point you in the right direction to see that next shot.... so honestly if repetition is a problem the fireworks are as bad as the parades, probably a little worse since the fireworks are all planned and sequenced out the exact same way for every show in the parade you might actually get a slightly different reaction from someone in the parade.

I would cancel my annual pass if they decided to give us a piece of garbage like Fantasy in the Sky or Wishes over HEA. It still infuriates me there are fools who think those two shows are definitions of good. I would rather never have a nighttime parade again if it means ICONIC nighttime shows like HEA.
Then if you ever go out to DL you should check the schedules in advance because at DL they have been doing a certain nights only for fireworks for a very long time.... frankly it kind of makes it more special when they happen because of that instead of the every night like clockwork.

"All" the daytime parades? How many do you think there are?

I was speaking of parades in general. But yes I did realize it was at night. I watched it once and that was enough.

Daytime parades are useless I agree. Use that budget for a kick butt nighttime parade. Spectromagic probably consisted the staffing of Festival of Fantasy and Paint the Night combine, probably a larger reason why it's no longer around. We all know if it came back there would be some stuff missing and it would be released as an improved refreshed Specteomagic.

Remember when there was a daytime parade at 3 parks (MK, DHS, AK) plus 3 different regular nighttime shows (MK, Epcot, DHS)? Ah, the good ol' days of 2010... ;) (I'm just spitballin' the year, BTW)

You can include all of the parks and it's still just one.
Then I'm glad they've gotten rid of the ones they used to have, I remember having a terrible time trying to get around one at AK in the past and just assumed I was lucky that I never got trapped by any on the last trips we've done. I guess now the only one that will ever bother us is the one at MK. Things are looking up and I didn't even know it.

That's one reason I dont want to, tbh. I think its idiotic a Disney park is too cheap and lazy to offer nighttime spectaculars every night

Is this true? We were planning on heading back out there soon. I did not know this was happening, and they should be embarrassed. Nightly fireworks are part of what makes it special. They just keep taking more and more and more away. It's awful.
