    We were quite disappointed the first time we went to find that there was no parade in EPCOT

    It seems like it would be perfect to go round the lake

    Has there ever been one? will there ever be one you think?

    We just missed the last ever showing of this parade on our first visit - I've heard it was pretty cool.

    Back when I was in high school in the 90's, we came down for Magic Music Days and marched at both WDW & Epcot.

    I think at WDW we marched in front of the afternoon parade. We started back stage behind Splash Mountain and followed the normal parade route and ended back stage between the Emporium & the Fire Station.

    At EPCOT, I don't remember if we were part of a parade. I'm thinking it was just us. We started backstage behind Germany and marched through China, Norway, & Mexico and ended up down between the 2 gift shops by the water at the front of World Showcase and played a couple songs. After that I don't remember how we got back, maybe continued around to Canada and the rest or went back the same way (is it terrible that I don't remember? LOL!)

    I don't know if Disney has this program or not anymore. We were there during spring break.

    I always did enjoy Tapestry of Nations and the music but my DW didn't particularly like it. There also used to be one of the English double decker buses that ran around the lake and periodically they would bring the characters out on it but alas that has also gone away.
