Default “Block Party Bash” Details

I know details of the new parade have been scattered throughout the boards - but here is the official press release in a nutshell. FYI - I've seen the Disneyland version of this parade and it is lots of fun.


“Block Party Bash” to Rock Disney’s Hollywood Studios

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. -- "The Year of a Million Dreams" rocks on at Walt Disney World Resort this spring with a new funtastic parade featuring favorite Disney-Pixar characters in the interactive, high-energy "Block Party Bash" parade.

Continuing the Disney Parks tradition of immersive guest experiences, "Block Party Bash" will put Disney's Hollywood Studios guests right in the middle of an unbelievable impromptu party during what could be one of the wildest, most interactive parades ever.

With music and excitement cranked to the max for this high-energy street extravaganza, "Block Party Bash" will entice guests to dance, play and party their way through Disney's Hollywood Studios. The wildest block party in Disney history will entertain guests with a non-stop musical parade that doubles as an immersive/interactive street spectacular.

Led by the famous Green Army Men, "Block Party Bash" will literally explode into the park as it makes its way down Hollywood Boulevard.

In addition to an eclectic mix of fun-inducing retro tunes, "Block Party Bash" will include appearances by some of the most popular characters including Woody and Buzz Lightyear from "Toy Story," Mike and Sully from "Monsters, Inc." and Flik and Atta from "A Bug's Life."

The "block party" will transform into major choreographed sections that immerse guests into a feeling of playing with the "toys," screaming with the "monsters" and dancing with the "bugs." The performance will literally be bursting with dancers, acrobats, jumping stilts and a mini caravan of electric scooters filling the performance area with an awe-inspiring array of visuals and sound sensations.

The elaborate set pieces for this interactive parade/show will include large floats themed to "Toy Story," "Monsters, Inc." and "A Bug's Life," one-of-a-kind trampoline units (invented specifically for "Block Party Bash") and "tweeners" (smaller floats that look like stacks of toy blocks that double as dance stages, decorative prop boxes and sources of amazing special effects). These rolling stages will camouflage impressive telescoping towers that rise during the finale of the extravaganza revealing Mr. and Mrs. Incredible and Frozone from the Disney presentation of a Pixar Film, "The Incredibles."

As a totally immersive experience, guests can expect a contagious spectacle of fun and laughs to spread throughout the audience. "Guests won't be able to resist the show's energetic performers, lovable characters, familiar pop tunes and never-ending surprises," said Robin Trowbridge, show director. "What a fantastic opportunity to share this incredible show with so many guests. I have no doubts that this show with all its fun, energy and surprises will knock the socks off of everyone visiting Disney's Hollywood Studios."

"Block Party Bash" at Disney's Hollywood Studios joins an incredible array of new interactive experiences and astonishing entertainment scheduled to premiere during "The Year of a Million Dreams."

We will be there March 9-16 and can't wait to do this event. We had to juggle our schedule because we also want to do the Pirate/Princess Party as well as the other parade that will be ending when the Block Party begins

Default Can't Wait Till April!!!!!!!

For those of you who have experienced this elsewhere, how does it work? Is it like Stars N Cars, starting at one side of the park and following through to another? Or is it like High School Musical Pep Rally, stopping at Mickey's Hat, then returning?

Well, at DCA there were 3 parade stops, or Scream Zones along the route and the Block Party Bash stops a all 3 zones and it's a 10 minute or so medley of high energy dancing, jumping screaming and character interaction. This is one of my favorite Disney Parades, and it is SO full of audience participation. All the kids and kids at heart will love it ... and you even get to be part of the act and everyone dances with the performers ... totally fun!

Exclamation

I'll be attending a sneak preview of the Block Party Bash next Thursday, March 6th. DHS is holding 2 Cast Member previews that night, one at 10:30 and the other at midnight. My DW is a CM and can bring me in as her guest.

I'm really looking forward to this! Camera is charging right now!
