I haven't heard anything about that parade. But I think Disney wants to replace a lot of the parades soon.

I have heard rumours of this too probably from the same place as I've only seen this once, reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaaaally hoping this isn't true as Its one of my most favourite parades (not that I have any I don't like!) but this one has been a constant every time I've been to AK and would be really sad to see it go and most likely not replaced Sad(

Yah I heard that as well. I can't say whether I will miss it or not because I have only seen it once as I don't spend the whole day at that park.

I, too, heard about the rumor on a site that shall be not named. I haven't seen the actual parade myself because I'm not a fan of parades in general. But from what I read, it really congested the park and with the construction of Avatar Land, that only further complicates logistics. I heard it's been around since 2001, which is really impressive for the most part considering that the main MK parade on average lasted only about 4-5 years before another takes over.

when I was last at AK, a portion of the park looked like it was in the process of being shut down with something happening. I didn't find out that it was something to do with Avatar till I got back home to the UK, but I'm guessing the parade will be a casualty of this change.

I think it is confirmed now that it will go at the end of June. They are citing the new construction and that it will interfere with the parade route hence it is stopping.

Indeed the parade is coming to an end. This is the parade that in my opinion could afford to go. Just a bunch of random animals floats that featured a character on each that really didn't have anything to do with the float. While animals of course are the theme of the park, I didn't really get the theme of this parade. While Animal Kingdom does need some type of special event, but I really don't think this parade did much for the park. Of all the celebrations and parades, it was probably the weakest. Just seemed thrown together. I don't think it will be that missed.

So many of the released plans look amazing. The glowing tree of life and new attractions could really beef up the park time for us. A new closing show could be great as well.

Even more so, Dances with Wolves, even though it is not Disney.

My thoughts too... I hope it will be really cool and vibrant with all the light up trees and stuff... Right now it seems more of a nighttime thing than visiting during the day
