Can anyone confirm this: I read the new "Share a Dream Come True"  Parade in MK has it's soft run on September 21st.
We have to leave WDW on the 22nd, so this would be great!! :smile:

Yoo Hoo, Merlin!

A WDW CM friend of mine does not think it will start on September 21st, even with a soft opening.

He heard the parade will start on September 24th. Now, the official schedule lists "Recycle the Magic" :wink: clear through the 29th, but he says often that official information changes.

Good luck! Here's hoping it starts while you're still there, Merlin!

Yoo Hoo, Merlin!

Cross your fingers, because Deb's Unofficial Walt Disney World Information Guide (WDWIG) at http://wdwig.com is reporting the Magic Kingdom's "Share A Dream Come True" parade will have a soft opening on Friday, September 21st @ 3 pm.

Deb also reports

  • "Mickey's Jammin' Jungle Parade" at Disney's Animal Kingdom will soft open at 3 pm on Monday, September 24th
  • Epcot's "Tapestry of Dreams" parade has its soft opening Monday, September 24th @ 6:30 and 8:15 pm
  • The Disney-MGM Studios' "Disney Stars and Motor Cars" parade soft-opens on Monday, September 24th 3 1/2 hours before that night's first showing of Fantasmic!

Note this is not official information, but good luck for your trip, Merlin!

I've just gotten the official word on the Magic Kingdom's daytime parade changover:

Disney's Magical Moments Parade will run thru 30 Sept.
Share a Dream Come True Parade will start 1 October.

Of course, that's only the official word, reality may differ, but I think it's likely to be correct.  With the MK closing at 7 p.m., parade practices at night are quite common -- that's how the last parade change was managed.

So for those of you ending your visits in September, you'll probably need to come back to see the new parade. Sorry.

That sound bad! But I still cross my fingers for wdwig to be right. If not, I have a very good reason to come back next year. Since we have all our money for this trip on our bankaccount, we started to save the money for the next trip. We put every 5DM (nearly Ū,50) coin in our piggy bank. This way we saved our complete money for our meals for this trip from 7th to the 22nd of september.

Yoo Hoo, Merlin!

Great news! I hope you saw this while still on vacation, or found out in person for yoursel... The Orlando Business Journal is now reporting that the Share a Dream Come True Magic Kingdom parade will begin on Sept. 21 at 3 pm with the new parade's soft opening! Let's hope this unofficial word comes true!

The article also reports that the Disney-MGM Studios will open Walt Disney: One Man's Dream on Sept. 23rd. It is a new attraction that shows Disneyana about Walt Disney's career. And also at D-MGM, Sept. 28th is the day for the unveiling of the 122-foot-tall BAH ("Big Ass Hat") -- as it is called on rec.arts.disney.parks! -- officially named The Sorcerer's Hat.

The article claims that on Sept. 24th these attractions will have their soft openings:

  • Playhouse Disney -- Live on Stage! at D-MGM
  • Mickey's Jammin Jungle parade at 3 pm in Disney's Animal Kingdom
  • Tapestry of Dreams with new dream-spinners characters and the colorful Dream Catcher float in Epcot at 6:30 pm and 8:10 pm
  • Disney Stars and Motor Cars parade in D-MGM at 4:30 pm.

You might want to see the complete story here for yourself!  :smile:
