I think Max is the Hatbox Ghost of the parade.

Loved the Christmas Spectacularrrrr!!
When we were at DLR for the holidays in 2010, and we did the Holiday Tour too. There was a projection show with music on "it's a small world" and they had special projections during the fireworks too. Did they change that for this past year?

As far as finding Max - we have seen him a couple of times at the Surf's Up with Mickey & Friends breakfast over at the Paradise Pier Hotel. We've seen Daisy Duck over there too, and she seems to be a hard character to find sometimes.

Thanks so much, Don! :)

As for the projections, as far as I know they still do them. We didn't mention them mainly because we didn't see them this year - I THOUGHT I had referenced them in the portion about Sleeping Beauty Castle during the fireworks; I had intended to, but it's definitely possible I just plain forgot about it! Time was getting away from us a bit so we started to nix a few things unfortunately :/

As for Max, I KNOW we referenced the fact we'd never been to Paradise Pier Hotel, so that would explain a few things :) We have seen Daisy in The Park a few times, like you say, she is kind of rare. We'd still like to see Max more INSIDE The Parks, though. But, we also know it's one of the reasons we like A Christmas Fantasy so much so... maybe it's okay if he's just there. :)
