Disney's Block Party Bash parade is a parade at the Disney Hollywood Studios theme park.
This parade replaced the Disney Stars and Motor Cars Parade
Continuing the Disney Parks tradition of immersive guest experiences, "Block Party Bash" will put Disney's Hollywood Studios guests right in the middle of an unbelievable impromptu party during what could be one of the wildest, most interactive parades ever.
With music and excitement cranked to the max for this high-energy street extravaganza, "Block Party Bash" entices guests to dance, play and party their way through Disney's Hollywood Studios. The wildest block party in Disney history entertains guests with a non-stop musical parade that doubles as an immersive/interactive street spectacular.
Led by the famous Green Army Men, "Block Party Bash" literally explodes into the park as it makes its way down Hollywood Boulevard.
In addition to an eclectic mix of fun-inducing retro tunes, "Block Party Bash" includes appearances by some of the most popular characters including Woody and Buzz Lightyear from "Toy Story," Mike and Sully from "Monsters, Inc." and Flik and Atta from "A Bug's Life."
The "block party" transforms into major choreographed sections that immerse guests into a feeling of playing with the "toys," screaming with the "monsters" and dancing with the "bugs." The performance is literally be bursting with dancers, acrobats, jumping stilts and a mini caravan of electric scooters filling the performance area with an awe-inspiring array of visuals and sound sensations.
The elaborate set pieces for this interactive parade/show include large floats themed to "Toy Story," "Monsters, Inc." and "A Bug's Life," one-of-a-kind trampoline units (invented specifically for "Block Party Bash") and "tweeners" (smaller floats that look like stacks of toy blocks that double as dance stages, decorative prop boxes and sources of amazing special effects). These rolling stages camouflage impressive telescoping towers that rise during the finale of the extravaganza revealing Mr. and Mrs. Incredible and Frozone from the Disney presentation of a Pixar Film, "The Incredibles."
The parade starts near the front of the park at Crossroads, travels down Hollywood Boulevard, past the American Idol Experience and exits near 'Star Tours'.
This parade features guest participation. Several guests will act as Grand Marshals or carry banners.
