By the time this parade started, we had been walking all day and my feet were very tired! I have to admit that I wasn’t in the best of moods as the first float went by. But that changed quickly as the fun began, because everyone loves parades!

 

Acrobats and Heimlich

  Bo Peep and Gypsy

I really appreciate how much the costumed Cast Members put into their performances. Even when it’s hot or inclement they are out there doing everything they can to entertain the guests! So I was very disappointed to see that many were throwing balls (that were shot out of floats for everyone to have) at Gypsy, seeing if they could hit her wings. The mentality escapes me!

Sulley having a monster of a time!

    

Mrs. Incredible shakes her booty, and we try to look half as good!

Obviously, I’m out-of-shape Bob!

Whenever the music would stop or transition into another segment, a shower of foam balls would shoot out of the float in question and people would scramble to pick them up. We missed them but a nice little girl gave us one, as she had managed to scrounge about half a dozen. Thank you anonymous Disney girl!

Remember: Balls are for keeping, not for throwing at costumed characters!

Did anyone else get a chance to see this fun street-party style parade? Did you get a souvenir ball? What color was yours? Let me know how you rate this parade in the comments section.

  2. Christoph Langen rocks! With the marks on the turn I almost believe they actually did this! None the less a very cool video. Very nicely shot. Love the Go Pr#78o21&;s framed in each of the POVs shots!
