What, no Lone Ranger float? :lmao:

The parade looks seriously great, I'm not a huge Brave fan but that bagpipes float is pretty cool. The Peter Pan segment is great too, but the real highlight has to be Maleficent - just stunning!

I'm not seeing a lift hill, which means it would have to be powered... so no, I wouldn't count it. But others might... ;)

I just spent my first full day at magic kingdom yesterday (Monday). All I have to say is HOLY CRAP is this place cool. It's a little crowded, but fast pass makes it a lot better . We're going back to Magic Kingdom today because we couldn't possibly hit it all on one day. The one thing that really blew my mind was the extent of the transportation system. I parked, went through the ticket area and expected to enter an amusement park. Nope. A freaking railway station! Disney wins the award for both most ridiculous and most awesome way to enter a theme park!

I prefer to mate with donkeys over humans!

You know after watching the parade video. I must say, I am not big on parades but I do remember always enjoying SpectroMagic. I wish it was still around. Don't get me wrong, Main Street Electrical parade is great and I understand its a classic. But there was just something about Spectro that Main Street doesn't have. Of course, this could of just been because it was my first parade to see at the WDW resort.

Anyone know why the castle is getting painted silver today...?

I'm sorry in advance if this has been previously discussed elsewhere!

oh wow I wonder if they're completely changing the color of the tops? Prob not. Its probably just primer or something and then they're gonna repaint it blue again

Maybe it's got to do with "Frozen"s around-the-world success?

I dunno, an iced-over castle in the...spring?

The 50th of the resort isn't until 2021, yes? no?

Probably primer, as noted above. :wink:

I was there this week and asked several employees and they all said its just the new look they're going with. Cranes and sky jacks were up from 12am to 12pm everyday as they were replacing tiles and painting on the silver. This is another reason for having the moat drained, the cranes were sitting in it. I would say the silver look was chosen to enhance the "Celebrate the Magic" projection as well.
As we were leaving Friday we noticed that the Dream Builders fences have been put up around all the grassy areas on the half of the central plaza closest to Main Street so we'll see work begin on that very soon. Not very pleasing to the eye at the moment but It'll be a welcome enhancement to crowd control when it's finished.
