Synopsis

Note: From the description videos.

Equestria Land is open for business and Rarity was lucky enough to land a summer job as the Lead Costume Designer for the Light Parade! But wait, it gets even better! Her boss and new BFF is none other than social media celebrity, Vignette! Rarity starts to feel the pressure of her new job when she has to prepare several costumes for the show. Meanwhile, Vignette convinces the Mane 7 to perform in the opening parade later that night, but when Fluttershy hesitates to appear as a bad girl on stage, Vignette takes a vanishing photo of her on a special cell phone. Applejack begins to worry when she realized Fluttershy is missing, but the rest of the Mane 7 are a caught up with the excitement of the theme park. Applejack eventually realizes Vignette has been using magic to make her friends disappear. Things get crazy and chaotic with only an hour before the parade starts! Sunset Shimmer joins Applejack in suspecting Vignette of foul play, but when they try to challenge Vignette, more of the Mane 7 disappears after a flash! Sunset Shimmer, Rainbow Dash, Fluttershy, Pinkie Pie, and Sci-Twi try to gain control of their predicament, but find themselves arguing instead. Rarity finally sees Vignette as the cause of all the trouble and apologizes to Applejack. Can the Mane 7 figure out how to reconnect and stop Vignette?
