Robert Ashburn of Figment’s Media and FTN has provided us with another fantastic photo report, this time from the Magic Kingdom area with a full report on the park’s latest parade and some other smaller happenings. Let’s take a look: We’ll start this report with photos from the debut performance of the Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade at the Magic Kingdom. Since the pre-parade vehicle is now in the actual parade, a high school band acted in it’s place Disney was filming the first performance for some promotional footage The parade banner leads along with what was the pre-parade Grand Marshal vehicle
It appears that the new/updated parade debuting at the Magic Kingdom park on January 23, 2009 has had a name change from what we have previously reported. According to upcoming entertainment schedules for the month of February, the parade will be titled the “Celebrate a Dream Come True” Parade. This slightly different name is shorter than the previously reported “Celebrate Disney Dreams Come True” moniker and actually sounds a whole lot better. Stay tuned to WDW News Today for more information on this updated Magic Kingdom parade as it becomes available.

I’ve finally returned from my 12 day excursion to the Walt Disney World with a ton of photos to share of the latest happenings around the vacation kingdom, including an in-depth look at the two biggest new attractions of 2009. With so much to see, let’s get started: These photos are not in chronological order, but are ordered by location, so let’s start in the Magic Kingdom.
Walt Disney World is celebrating 25 years of the Christmas Day Parade this year and has released a small article about the milestone and this year’s edition: In a way, you could say that it really all started back in 1950, when Walt Disney was welcomed into homes around the country on Christmas Day, appearing in his first-ever TV show. Or you could say it started in 1971, when Walt Disney World Resort opened its doors–and began a tradition of holiday season revelry. One way or another, Disney has been making the yuletide bright for a very long time! But this year marks a special anniversary, as the Walt Disney World Christmas Parade celebrates 25 years of telecasts. For a [...]
Matt Paul was at the Magic Kingdom on Sunday to attend the Very Merry Christmas Party, and shares with us some very interesting photos: A huge vending location of some kind is rising up behind the construction walls in the location of the former fry wagon You can see fixtures for signage and an awning in this picture construction materials behind the building on the hill
A few interesting developments from the last few days to note in this mixed-bag report: -Matt Paul is reporting that the Mickey Mouse float in the Disney Dreams Come True Parade at the Magic Kingdom has been removed from the parade to be converted to the opening float for the latest version of the parade that will debut around January. The rumored name of the new parade will be the Celebrate Disney Dreams Come True Parade and it will most likely welcome in a slightly altered soundtrack for the parade using the “Celebrate You” theme song of the “What Will You Celebrate?” campaign. In the meantime, Mickey is appearing in a familiar spot on the castle finale float, where he once stood in his [...]
Even though we are just about three weeks away from the beginning of the “What Will You Celebrate?” campaign at the Walt Disney World Resort, we have already had a major change in plans. Now don’t panic just yet, it’s actually quite a positive one. Instead of taking the same exact concept that Disneyland park is going to use for what they are calling “Celebrate! A Street Party” on Main Street U.S.A. like was originally planned, the Magic Kingdom will be receiving a larger and more extensive version of this mini-parade/show beginning Spring 2009. Here is a release on the new offering: At the Walt Disney World® Resort, the “Move It! Shake It! Celebrate It! Street Party” will come to life in early [...]
Our very own Matt Paul attended this weekend’s Walt Disney World Christmas Day Parade tapings, and reports back to us with these photos: This Friday and Saturday were days for Walt Disney World Christmas Day parade taping Dream Along With Mickey performed on a slightly modified stage for the later performances These red curtains were put in just for the parade taping.
We here at WDW News Today would like to welcome Steve Wieczorek to the staff as another official WDWNT photographer. His first photo report for us comes from the first Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party of the year: Nutcrackers around Town Square. Disney actually does celebrate Thanksgiving!

A few shots from Holiday Wishes. Gotta’ Love that shot We’ll end Steve’s photos with Goofy as Santa Clause at Cosmic Ray’s Starlight Cafe. Before we end this photo report, here are a couple of pictures from Jose Eber of a [...]
Walt Disney World has launched a new interactive website just to distribute details to guests on the Mickey’s Not-So-Scary Halloween Parties at the Magic Kingdom, currently taking place on select evenings until the end of October. The website features the popular “Boo-To-You” theme song from the party’s parade as well as narration from a ghostly voice that actually moves between the left and right audio channels, mimicking the voice-over effects from the stretching room scene of the Haunted Mansion. You can also view a special performance of the Cadaver Dans (otherwise known as Main Street U.S.A.’s Dapper Dans) singing “Grim Grinning Ghosts” while visiting the purple and black website. To get more information on the fireworks, candy, characters, and parade [...]
