Today I was out and about and I started to really miss Paint The Night, so I went on Youtube and watched the parade all over again. When I got back home and checked the WDW Magic Forums, I saw that the old Paint The Night thread popped back up, meaning someone posted in it and they posted this screenshot.
After seeing this I instantly got excited and decided to do more research. I did not find anything else besides that and then I got a little sad potentially knowing that maybe that is always on the Disney site. No other mention of Paint The Night appears in any section of the site, but here’s hoping the return of dining packages on the website could signal a very near return for the parade.
What do you think of Paint The Night? Do you want it to come back? Do you care? What is your favorite float on the parade?
The Disneyland After Dark events for 2020 were announced last week and they have some great themes.
The first is 80’s Night which will have plenty of throwbacks including “Flashback to Videopolis”, which will be located in the Fantasyland Theater and will include a VJ playing 80’s hits along to music videos. It will include a fireworks show called “Awesome After Dark-Fireworks To The Max” which will be high energy and have accompanying music. You will be able to meet some throwback Disney characters, have lots of photo ops, and of course special food and merchandise. The event runs January 29th, 2020.
The next theme will be Sweetheart’s Nite which will include love song themed dance parties across the park and a glitzy royal ball. You will be able to meet Disney character couples and have romantic photo ops and special food and merchandise. The event runs February 12th and 13th, 2020.
The third event will be at California Adventure and be themed to Pixar. Pixar Nite will run on March 5th, 2020 and include interactive dance parties themed to Pixar characters and stories, photo ops, meet and greets with characters from your favorite Pixar movies, and special food and merchandise.
The last event will be themed to the Villains and run on my birthday April 30th, 2020. Villains Nite will be at California Adventure (Home to Oogie Boogie Bash) and will have a Villains Cabaret with outlaws singing and dancing throughout the park, a DJ dance party and various sing-along’s throughout the park, photo ops with the villains themselves, as well as special food and merchandise.
Sea World has filed paper work with the city of San Diego indicating they want to have a drone show over Mission Bay. Sea World would be partnering with Intel, the same company who did drone shows in Las Vegas, Walt Disney World, and Universal Studios Hollywood, to operate their show.
Intel does amazing work on their drone shows and you know that if you have seen one of the shows listed above. According to the permits, the show would be around 5 minutes long and is expected to debut next year.
Sea World is very environmentally friendly and will monitor how their wildlife and birds are affected by the shows during the test runs. I am very excited for more drone shows in theme parks as after I saw the Dark Arts show at Universal my jaw dropped. Are you guys as excited as I am for this show? Do you prefer drone or fireworks shows? Let me know in the comments below and give this blog a follow if you want constant theme park updates.
