A preview look at Universal's Superstar Parade floats
Thanks to Theme Park Insider reader and correspondent Domenik Jost's Twitter feed
, we have our first look at the floats from the new Universal's Superstar Parade at Universal Studios Florida
Here's Spongebob SquarePants:
Dora the Explorer and Diego:
And Gru with the Minions:
And here's one more look at the Despicable Me float, in an photo courtesy Universal Orlando:
The parade's official debut is this Tuesday, May 8.
it looks okay. I was never much of a parade fan, and usually find them as being in the way of my day.
I love parades because they lighten up the queues for other attractions!
It looks good, but I wouldn't go out of my way just to see it.
I would submit that the one concern is the lifespan of some of these characters. Aside from Dora and Sponge Bob(although he's pretty played out too), I don't think any of these characters could be deemed tried and true. They run a high risk of having some of this stuff feel dated and irrelevant within a year. Especially "Hop" which doesn't seem to be nearly as cross cultural and timeless as Despicable Me could be.
I think these floats look fantastic.
Seems like there's no floats that would interest me. They look great though!
