Starting on October 1, 2001, WDW will
be celebrating Walt Disney's 100th Birthday. There are many events planned
during this celebration, that will last through 2002.
- Parades: Each Park is getting
a new parade, each is dedicated to Walt's Imagination. We have pictures of all
four parades, click on the parade heading for pictures of each.
Magic Kingdom: Share a
Dream Come True Parade. This will replace the Magical Moments Parade in the
afternoon. It will feature Disney's most popular Characters in Snow Globes.
It was cute, but too short.
Disney-MGM Studios: Disney
Stars and Motor Cars Parade. This is inspired by the early 1930's & 40's
Hollywood Movie Premieres when stars showed up in classic automobiles. It
may be one of the biggest character parades ever. This is the best of the
Animal Kingdom: Mickey's
Jammin' Jungle Parade. An interactive street party that features the Disney
Characters on expedition with a tribute to their animal friends. Mickey and
the gang have packed a caravan of safari vehicles, tagging along are giant
rolling drums disguised as exotic jungle animals. VERY fun parade!!
Epcot: Tapestry of Dreams.
Revamped Tapestry of Nations - More large puppets dancing down the street.
The parades theme is the dreams of children, and there will be a special way
for them to make wishes for the future once the Dream Catcher passes by.
Not much different than TON, it will be cancelled in high winds.
