It was told to the cast.

Like others have said, the cast was informed and told there were no replacements planned.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't you the same poster who decided to get god-awful Wonderful Christmastime in my head back in late December? I'm quite certain you are. And then you hit me with this post? That's it. You are evil and you must be destroyed.





I'm just hoping that they bring back The Disney Stars and Motor Cars parade. I don't dare let myself dream that they would be getting rid of the hat. I don't like the hat. I can say, though, that I would prefer to see that hat as I walk down Hollywood Blvd than that stupid stage. Oh, and as long as we are cleaning out that area, how about getting rid of the annoying American Idol experience video.

Does anyone have any "inside info"?Thanks.
They're closing on the same day because... it's the same Cast. I think you're over thinking it.

I've been hearing this Star Wars rumour but do you know something we don't?

Exactly right! Same cast. If they closed one and not the other, then the performers would only get a half-day of work (and pay). And it would be tough to assign them other roles because the performance matrix doesn't necessarily match.

So ... you close one ... you are unfortunately prompted to close the other.

This can't be right. Disney Channel Rocks is a bunch of singing, dancing fools. The Pixar Parade is full of our favorite Pixar characters, like Flik & Atta and the Incredibles. Not the same people at all!

Magic ruined. For. Ev. Er.



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.

Due to guest demand, Disney has realized that Studios just has too darned many entertainment offerings and decided to do away with a couple to make it easier for families to tour the parks.

Many of the CTF performers are also cast in Fant, not in DCR. So, on April 7th, half of their income will have to come from other casting which means the domino effect/bumping comes into play. Cast who are in a day parade are usually also cast in an evening show.
