Sidenote: I had to scan the page for a few seconds to figure out how to comment on the article. The "What do you think?" button didn't stand out as an obvious way to comment (Perhaps I'm use to a regular comment setup or the grey color didn't stick out?). I mean this only as a constructive comment, as I love, love your blog and love how you updated the format! (Yes throwing three loves out to Theme Park Insider!)
Now back to our topic of parades....
As far as Spectromagic goes, I will not miss the parade as much as I will miss the soundtrack. I loved every second of that parade's score, Electric Parade's Baroque Hoedown is fun, but it tries my patience after a little bit. I also think I like Electric Parade for the nostalgia of it, but it looks a bit dated to me. I'm not sure if I'd notice the older pieces in the parade showing their age as much if they didn't put the brand new Tinkerbell float at the very beginning of it.
But overall I'm excited as a parade fan! Looks like Disney World is finally stepping up it's game and trying to show Disneyland we can have nice parades too!
Great article Adam! Congrats!
