Geek's Thoughts & Observations

Disney Magic on Parade:

  • Found a spot in the hub for Disney Magic on Parade!  I was quickly learning that the guests at Disneyland Paris are substantially more rude than those in other parks around the world.  The experience at the parade confirmed this as I was pushed, shoved, bumped into, etc.. more times than I can remember.  Then add in those smoking around you plus those that decided rules did not apply to them and they were standing on railings, in the grass, etc.. and it was really a free for all in the area.  The few cast members I saw did nothing except try and keep them off the parade route.  One interesting note they would not let guests sit on the curb with their legs in the street.  You had to stand or back up and keep all on the raised part of the curb.
  • The parade itself was ok. It fell into the trap of many of the parades of just repeating the same song over and over and did not change for the various units so it grew tiresome over time to me. The concept of different films represented on the front half and back half of the floats was interesting and worked well. It felt like a typical parade nothing special or different. It could have been anywhere.


Disney Dreams:

  • For my first viewing I choose to watch from the point in the hub where the rail tracks split/converge for the street car.  It was not very crowded there and I thought have a wide perspective for my first viewing made sense. 
  • I enjoyed the show.  It seemed to be the best use of projection mapping I have seen with most of the scenes taking advantage of it and the characters etc.. interacting with the structure, trees, etc..  The show also used some World of Color style fountains, water screens, fire effects, fireworks, lasers, and lights.  It was a large multimedia array and well done.  I thought the projection brightness and quality was very good but not quite as good as Tokyo’s.   Also I did not think the finale was that strong.  I would have really liked to have had a theme song wrap it up.  But I am guessing they went with something everyone knew so language would not be an issue.
  • Viewing Disney Dreams! Up close was a slightly different experience.  You could see more detail on the castle projections but the water screens and some of the shells were not clearly visible.  I prefer being further back to take in the full breadth of the show, much like World of Color at Disney California Adventure.
