#24hour - Random thoughts about Paint The Night - Loved the homage to MSEP! - not a fan of the music otherwise. Hopefully it will grow on me. - I wonder if this parade will be a classic to my kids generation as MSEP was to my generation. -does this mean MSEP will not come back to DLR? I hope not. - I was in awe of the effects and colors. Can't wait to see it again and again. - looking forward to s  More...

They incorporated MSEP music in with the new song. I thought the whole thing was fantastic. The MSEP won't be coming back, it's staying in FL. I understand the nostalgia with MSEP but its time to move forward and Disney did a great job with the advancements in technology.  - wickedale  379.4 #557 1:36AM
Disney absolutely did an amazing job, agree wholeheartedly!  I do think there is room for MSEP at DCA. I'm a child of the 70's so it was "my parade". When it was at DCA three generations of my family saw the parade together.  I can't even describe the look on my moms face. Watching her watch us and her grandkids who were seeing it for the first time. Magical!  I pray that we can do that again for PTL.  - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 8:10AM
MSEP won't be coming back. I did a tour at the MK with the VP of the park and I asked him if the rumors were true that it was coming back. He told me he really enjoyed the parade and he had no plans of letting it go. You'll just have to take a trip to WDW! :) - wickedale  379.4 #557 10:01AM
Ok good to know!  I am so grateful we got to do the 3 gen thing then when it was at DCA. Since then there have been more grandkids, hopefully we can all watch PTN as a family too. And the young ones can carry on this tradition for future generations. ๐Ÿ˜€ - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 1:42PM
I feel the same about the music. I'm just not a huge fan of Wreck It Ralph, but love the MSEP music worked into it. - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  676.1 #271 11:32PM
I can't wait to see it in person though! - HasAnyoneSeenMyGlassSlipper  676.1 #271 11:33PM
I knew the song sounded familiar but didn't get it was from Wreck It Ralph until I read on MW. So how much did you love experiencing it last night?!  - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 8:11AM
Oops I read "though" as "tonight". I hope you get to see it soon! - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 8:12AM
I loved the parade! I think Disney did an excellent job with Paint The Night! - Chris65  7.4 #12535 2:23PM
I didn't intend to see the parade at the 24 hour event because i figured it would be too crowded, however, I found myself with a front row view at the 1 am showing with some other wonderful MWers, and I LOVED it!!! What a gift that Disney has once again given us!!! So visually stunning, and since I adore the Wreck It Ralph soundtrack, I couldn't stand still ๐Ÿ˜‚ but tried to for the benefit of people standing behind me!!! 900 talented young people auditioned to become a member of the 80 PTN troop!!! Bravo!!! The MSEP will always be special to me, but I can't wait to see this parade again and again!!! - Willierose  2235.3 #61 3:09PM

I swear when we left around 11:15 pm or so DL was at least 1/3 empty from capacity. I don't understand why they weren't letting guests in at that time. I hope it's open by now. Have fun folks!

There are lots sitting and in shows from what I was told. But it's also precautionary I think to stop the bad behaviour. As usual, a few ruin it for many. But I'm glad you had a great time! - secretagentangel  1890.3 #77 1:18AM

I hope this is a new tradition for us!  I feel bad about not taking Lil One, she is close to 7. But if we decide to stay overnight I don't think she can handle it.

Going through my pictures from last week ..,, where is this and who is Harper Guff?

From Wikipedia: Goff was a lifelong model train enthusiast. In 1951, while in a London model-making shop, he met Walt Disney when they both wanted to buy the same model train.As a result of having met Disney, he joined the Los Angeles artistic team of the Walt Disney Studios, a relationship that continued, off and on, until his death in 1993. His extraordinary work gave a distinctive character to a number of Disney productions. He is specifically credited with many of the finest inventive effects in Disney's first live-action film, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (which he art directed - even though the movie credit reads: "Production Developed By..." Goff designed the exterior of the Nautilus, along with every set/compartment within the submarine). The film was awarded two Oscars, for color art direction and best special effects. At that time, in 1954, the Art Directors Union had created a bylaw within the Academy of Motion Pictures, which stated that only union art directors could win the award. The Academy gave the award for Best Art Direction - Color 1954, to Goff's assistant, John Meehan, because he had a union card. (Goff went on to get a union card, but was never given the award.)Years later, Harper created the submarine, Proteus, for the film, Fantastic Voyage, and art directed the highly acclaimed Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory.Goff also contributed heavily to the early renderings and concept art for Disney's proposed Mickey Mouse Park(which became the theme park known as Disneyland), and several areas of Walt Disney World theme park.He also played the banjo in the seven-piece Dixieland band called Firehouse Five Plus Two, formed by other Disney staff and led by trombonist Ward Kimball. In 1993, he was posthumously named a Disney Legend. - caramiapoohAKAface  3849.8 #30 10:17PM
Thanks Cara, that explains the banjo reference. Couldn't figure out the tattoo reference.  - PrincessDuckie  824.4 #205 1:01PM
Back then it was a "business" saying it was an artist - BaseballMickey_CM  7100.8 #9 1:36PM
That's across from the jungle cruise , above the store sorry I forgot the name of the store ๐Ÿ˜Š - MowgliLovesBaloo  65.0 #0 1:19PM
Right above my second home! I love to point this out to my trainees because a lot of people don't know the impact of Goff's vision of the Jungle Cruise and the rest of the park.  - BaseballMickey_CM  7100.8 #9 1:24PM
I love that word..."Banjo". Gonna work it into conversation today. - dizneedude  881.2 #189 1:40PM

So we hear that Luigi's Rollickin Roadsters will open early 2016. Here is what my best guess it will be like.... Refer to this video clip from Cars 2 and imagine a combination of trackless ride system rides aquatopia and Pooh's Humny Hunt Tokyo. (Both attractions can be viewed on YouTube) My guess-lots of smooth spinning an
