of Dreams Parade
Tapestry of Nations is actually 3 identical processionals, which occur concurrently in the World Showcase. Parade A can be seen between Mexico and Germany, Parade B between Germany and Morocco and Parade C between Morocco and Canada.
There are two shows nightly, (times vary seasonally) at 6:30 p.m. and 8:15 p.m., with the first parade running east to west (e.g. the Mexico/Germany parade runs from Mexico to Germany), while the second parades reverse direction, heading west to east (e.g. the Mexico/Germany parade runs from Germany to Mexico). This show has a very different look and feel depending on the time of day you view it, whether during the daylight, or when the park is dark.
The larger than life puppets are very interactive with the crowd, which especially seems to delight the children. Looking around I saw many smiling faces, people of all ages moving to the music and lots of dancing and applauding!
As a guest, be aware that once the parade begins, passage through World Showcase is VERY difficult!
The music is an original score by Hollywood film composer Gavin Greenaway and can be found on the new WDW Millennium CD.
More than 150 costumed performers star in Tapestry of Nations.
Fifteen massive, rolling percussive units carry a total of 720 drums and 30 drummers
