My DS would be thrilled to have it at our house. I haven't told him yet....he seriously may not want to go back. He loves DCR so much that it was the ONLY motivator I could come up with to get him to loose weight....if you loose 20 pounds before we go, you can see "Disney Rocks" as many times as you want the TWO days we go to DHS. It worked...I camped out on the benches over near Brown Derby. BTW....he is 19 and has Down Syndrome.

Posted this in the Rumor thread I posted the other day, so I'll post here so you all can know also.

There are many rumors about why this is happening, such as park expansion for Star Wars Land/Lucas Land type stuff, but the only thing that has been confirmed is that there will be backstage roadwork in the area of the parade route before it starts and after it ends, and that the floats will not be able to pass. The Disney Channel Rocks float that's the same path that the parade does to exit.

Seriously, though, I'm intrigued by this. Where else are there "overlapping" CMs? I assume the castle stage show performers in the MK are also the ones that do the Celebrate a Dream Come true parade. Where do the nighttime parade CMs come from? Or are the parade CMs the same, and they essentially just work second shift? Gimme more inside info, Berlioz! If you can, that it. Don't want to get anyone in trouble.
I don know about HS but there was a CM that recognized us and said something at AK parade. She was a performer in Lion King Show. (We were in front row and kids were chosen at end to march around.)

That's not true... the decision was known for at least over a week prior to the announcement to the front line Managers and Cast. There was a lot of prep work that went into the Cast announcement and taking care of the business side of it beforehand. The decision may date back even further than that week.

I just noticed that the "Hat Stage" is not currently onstage as well.

While I think this is probably just cutbacks, this picture that Josh from easyWDW took perfectly explains why I like the hat.

Enough said.

For the record female star wars fans will take offense to this and I am one of them. That is a perpetual stereotype that needs to be broken. Star Wars is not JUST for boys. Over 50% of science fiction fans are female. I for one would be all for a major over haul on the studios including much much more star wars. Please help the female fans out there kill this boys only stereotype.

Some of us remember that same angle but with the Chinese Theater facade showing. Very nice, too.

Rumor says that they may change that facade to the
"Carthay Theater" (as they have at DCA in Anaheim)
and THEN pull out the hat.

Stay tuned.

When I checked the calendar for our May trip the other day, the CTF parade is on the times schedule. Have they just not gotten around to taking it off the website?

They haven't corrected the Parade schedule. April 6th is definitely the last day for CTF and DCR!
