This year's parade was just awful. Thank goodness I recorded it and could fast forward through most of it.

Agreed. Not enough Magic, too much hard sell. Though we did get to see more of the Dream (going end of Feb!!).

And what was up with that commercial for the "real" famly going to Disney as a surprise for the little girl's birthday? I thought it was an ad for Toddlers and Tiaras at first! It was so fake!!

DP looked at me and asked: "We can hear people butcher carols on our Main Street and you have ALL the planning DVDs you want. Let's go see Tron."

It's funny you mentioned this.. I had tweeted "Remember when the Disney Xmas Parade was only a subtle marketing sell, now it's a brick through the window."

I was actually surprised they invited Amber Riley to sing.. she's so NOT Raven...
