Hmm, the last time we went in Fall 2012 the DHS parade (I believe the pixar parade) was I think called the Block Party? It had lots of Bugs Life characters I think in it, green army men, and lots of people on skates/scooters dancing. We absolutely loved it. It was a nice little parade. They had all the balls bounce out at the end that read "Block Party" on them. That stinks if this is the parade. Hopefully, they will come out with something then for this park before we head to WDW in October. DHS is somewhat lacking a bit or maybe I should stop trying to hold it up to a MK standard.

Personally, I don't know why they ever ended the Stars and Motor Cars Parade and sent it to Walt Disney Studios Paris... Maybe we'll get Cinemagique in Disney's Hollywood Studios... (Yeah, right.)

Never stop holding a Disney park up to the highest standards...
Now with the WDW president, hopefully MGM and Animal Kingdom will get a much needed long delayed renovation. Hey, even Downtown Disney is converting to DISNEY SPRINGS by 2016.
Is this a sign of things to come? Hopefully!

That was the parade before the one the rumors are calling for an end to.

Agh sorry, I meant 2010. Well, they sure do turn the parades over fast!

Has this been confirmed?

Because I have the print out park schedule from DisneyWorld for September, and it is still showing the Pixar Pals parade on there every day at Hollywood Studios.

I would be quite surprised if the very next day there is not a new parade in its place. The only Disney park without a daily parade is EPCOT so I am fairly sure there will be some sort of new parade. They are too popular.

Yes. The cast for the parade and the Disney Channel Rocks show were notified last Friday.

From what I have heard, they will be doing behind the scenes road work making it impossible to move parade floats, so I would not expect a new parade for at least a little while.

I've read rumors about a DHS expansion announcement coming in late April/early May. I'm wondering if these cancellations (and/or the roadwork you mentioned) have anything to do with that.

I casually watched the Pixar parade. They definitely ought to have a Pixar centric parade, but updating this one would not be a bad idea. I never noticed the Disney Channel Rocks component (or was it it's own parade?).

DCR was a stage show in front of the big hat. It was the High School Musical show prior to DCR.
