Melanie Emmons (aka "Meli O'Girl") wrote a wonderful "trip" report, which you can read here. Some of the photos (i.e. the "sticker lady") will make more sense after reading her report.

One of the more colorful marching bands
Cast members came around with beach balls, footballs, hula-hoops, etc., to keep the crowd "busy" as the evening wore on. You can see in this photo how the buildings along 5th Ave are just slightly largher than those along the Magic Kingdom's Main Street
Here's the famous Sticker Lady (Doreen) whom we kept screeming at "Sticker Lady, we Love You.... We have signs...." Peter was the only one of our group who actually got a sticker. But I think we somehow made her evening.
Parade FloatsMy apologies for the poor quality of some of these.
While my memory won't allow me to identify all of the characters, I'll
try to at least identify which movie the float is from. Feel free to email me with corrections.
The Hercules and Hades floats coming up the avenue.
Hades - You can't tell from this picture, but there was real fire coming from this float!
Pinocchio's blue fairy.
