Pixar's Countdown to Fun Parade - Hollywood studios - Throwback Thursday

Here’s a good trip back in time. Three years ago, although it really doesn’t seem that long ago, Disney’s Hollywood Studios had an afternoon parade, Pixar Pals Countdown To Fun! (January 16, 2011 – April 6, 2013). It had replaced Block Party Bash. The parade was cute, allowing guests to see many Pixar Pals with colorful floats and catchy music.

I remember the “buzz” as to why the parade left was pending construction of new things to come to Hollywood Studios. At the time, everyone was sure it was going to be a Florida version of Carsland. Funny how three years later construction is finally happening and new things are coming!

This Throwback Thursday offers a bonus – the infamous “hat” makes an appearance as well.

Were you a fan of this parade? Do you miss the entertainment that was once offered at Hollywood Studios? Or maybe you are just way too excited for Star Wars Land to arrive?
