    She said they were starting with current performers at the parks. Doesn't seem like theres much information being said if it's true. it seems preliminary. And for all I know she could have no idea what she's talking about.

    I haven't heard anything on the nighttime parade front lately, but it wouldn't surprise me. I'd guess that this would be a temporary fix until the 50th anniversary...
    No, nothing has been posted externally on casting, but there is no reason Disney couldn't cast internally using current CM performers, especially if the parade is temporary or limited-time.

    I can’t see them spending money on a nighttime parade until the 50th.

    No, neither can I. The only possibility I can think of is that MSEP is returning for yet another "final run"... But I do doubt that considering they released "glowing away" merch when it left for DLR. Time will tell i'm sure!

    Unless it is a quick money grab to sell more merchandise, I just don't see what the benefit to them of bringing back a night time parade for now is - they are still getting crowds for HAE and we aren't that far away from Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge opening which will bring in tons of crowds, etc.

    For the 50th I get it, but what is the benefit to Disney of having a night time parade right now?

    Guest satisfaction?

    Kidding. I see the point. I just don’t like it. :)

    I get it and I am sure a lot of people would like it (though I also see some comments form people that like there not being a parade as it helps with congestion, etc)

    I do hope for a night time parade some day!

    Martin on WDWmagic believes that Disney has made a decision on the UK ride.

    The latest IP front runner according to Martin was Mary Poppins. Still not quite sure what type of ride it’s going to be.

    Fingers crossed that it is. It is so deserving of its own attraction.

    I hope it’s a Mary Poppins dark ride but please keep in mind it could be just a simple Mary Poppins themed carousel. Disney has a couple of ride options in mind and Martin isn’t sure which one they decided on.

    Obviously I would love as cool and innovative a ride as possible but would love a carousel - I actually think Disney needs more simple rides that people can ride or pass on, etc. - feels like with all the new expansions it's 2 big rides in each area and that is it

    I agree with you, more simple rides would help alleviate some wait off the E tix and a simple ride could really benefit in World Showcase because it would help families with small children venture into the countries without costing Disney much.

    I would be down for just a cute carousel! If it was Mary Poppins themed definitely!

    Per Martin it may not BE a ride. It is still in final discussions. I am not feeling great about this one.


    Then again, I was desperately wanting a Sword in the Stone themed boat ride :)

    So could we be seeing another circlevision film with no IP or still something IP related? I agree with BigRed and Max and think that smaller attractions could benefit that park so a carousel may be great!

    Are there any plans to refurb Space Mountain at WDW like at Disneyland Paris?
