The Wizarding World of Harry Potter won’t be the only thing new this holiday season at Universal Orlando Resort. The theme park resort will also be updating their Macy’s Holiday Parade to an all-new parade called Universal’s Holiday Parade Featuring Macy’s.

New details were released today including what floats guests can expect to see during this new parade, including 16 new balloons, 13 of which were exclusively designed by Macy’s. And what would a Universal parade be without those adorable Minions?  Bob the Minion balloon will be chasing after his favorite teddy bear plush, all the while the Minions sing their own rendition of Jingle Bells. Lucy, from Despicable Me 2 will also be making an appearance for the first time ever.

Madagascar will also be coming to the new parade featuring King Julien, The Penguins and more. Their section will feature a giant pineapple balloon, which King Julien has gifted himself.

Dronkey babies are adorable. Even in giant balloon format.
