The Parade of the Stars, the long in the tooth day time parade at Disneyland, has finally hung up its hippo suits. It was expected to run until the new parade for the 50th anniversary could debut in May. Instead it looks like the park will run a calvacade instead. Btw, calvacade is Disney speak for a character heavy mini-parade with decorated cars and upbeat music.
Originally meant to celebrate the park’s 45th Anniversary, The PotS has drug on for more than 5 years now. That’s about twice the average life of a day time parade at Disneyland. Many hope that this next parade will be spectacular, but not nearly as long lived. (via)
