March 14, 2008 – The Pixar Themed Parade Block Party Bash Begins at Walt Disney World
“All right people, we are ready to celebrate! Let’s launch Mission: Block Party!”
On March 14, 2008, the Pixar-themed parade and stage show Block Party Bash premiered at Walt Disney World’s Hollywood Studios. The parade came to Walt Disney World three years after it was introduced at Disney’s California Adventure to coincide with Disneyland’s 50th Birthday celebrations. Block Party Bash replaced the Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade that had previously been show at Hollywood Studios. The parade featured four Pixar films: Toy Story, A Bug’s Life, Monsters Inc., and The Incredibles. A combination of stage show and parade, it featured several floats that included a trampoline unit, scooters, and several flying props. The parade ended its run on January 1, 2011, and was replaced with Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun later that year.
