I had a really big choice this week. Actual monetary work was interfering with my Disney life. Putting me in between a rock and a hard place. I could've either made it to today's 30th Anniversary Celebration of Hollywood Studios, or made it to Hollywood Studios for May the 4th's Star Wars Day. Obviously me being me, I chose the latter of the two. So I had to live vicariously through Disney Parks Live for the Celebration's parade & wait till Saturday to see the new Wonderful World of Animation Fireworks & Projection show. Needles to say, that choice left me a little bummed. After seeing this though, I think I really made the right choice. Though I'll miss out on my 30th Anniversary button, I don't feel like I'm missing out on anything I can't see Saturday. This 30th Anniversary parade was a little disappointing. Not only was the commentary as annoying as the worst Macy's Day Parade coverage, a lot of what could've been big payoffs were very anti-climactic. I thought we were gonna see something really cool with Indiana Jones. Only to be very dissatisfied with the final payoff. Same thing goes for the big Galaxy's Edge reveal to a very not enthused Chewy firing his bowcaster. No Droids, no Kylo, no Boba Fett, no Phasma. This whole thing felt like a lot of missed opportunities. For that matter, it felt like it was thrown together today. The only success for ke out of this went to Toy Story. They stole the show in my opinion. At least the speech at the end & shout out to the cast was more entertaining than the commentary. I definitely know I made the right choice on this one. May the 4th be with me. On a bright note however, I do really like the new logo for Hollywood Studios. What do y'all think? Did y'all see something I didn't? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
Disney Parks went Live last night for Mickey's Boo to You Halloween Parade. This is probably my favorite parade at Disneyworld. I love seeing the characters in their costumes, the villains, the gravediggers, & most of all the Headless Horseman. I will say this though, I remember the year we went, the horseman came barreling through at top speed. It was a pretty intimidating sight. It seemed like he came through a little slower this time around, but at least everybody gets a better look at him. Awesome parade though. If you can't get out here to see it, definitely watch this live stream. You also get to see Vampirina's WDW introduction. She's hanging out for Halloween before she becomes a part of Hollywood Studios. My littlest LOVES Vampirina. So, needless to say, when she heard the music she came runnin. She's super excited, & I'm glad she got to see them make this big deal about the addition of her new favorite character. Anyway, check it out, & let me know what your favorite part was.
