Why the DHS Parades Have Been Discontinued
I have received information from a very reliable source.
As many are aware, today has been the last day for both the Pixar Parade and the Disney Channel Rocks Parade/show. The Pixar Parade would come in close to the entry gates; the Disney Channel Rocks would both come in and depart close to the entry gates.
Both of these parades use many wireless microphones and many other electronics for control purposes. It was found that all of these when coming close to the entry area at DHS they have been causing interference with the wireless controls for the touch points and the reading to the hand-held devices for the people working the entry.
Until such time as they are able to prevent any interference there will be no parades.
Additionally, it has been found that the AK Parade causes interference in some of the merchandise locations with the RFID touch pad sensors.
