A number of people close to the 'Block Party Bash' parade at Disney's Hollywood Studios have informed us that the parade is set to close in January 2011 to be replaced with another Pixar based parade. Block Party Bash debuted at Disney's Hollywood Studios on March 9 2008.
This information has not yet been officially confirmed, so as always, take as speculation at this point until something is officially announced.
