All New Parade “Magic Happens” Coming to Disneyland Resort
An all-new daytime parade for Disneyland Park was announced at Disney’s D23 Expo called “Magic Happens.” The parade promises to feature Moana, Coco, Sleeping Beauty and more! The parade will be led by mickey mouse and the gang!
Celebrating awe-inspiring moments of magic—both large and small—that are at the heart of so many Disney stories, “Magic Happens” reminds us we don’t need wings to fly, shooting stars were made to wish upon, and magic doesn’t stop at midnight.
This daytime spectacular will feature stunning floats, beautiful costumes, and beloved Disney characters – all led by Mickey Mouse and his pals.
On her voyager wa‘a (or canoe), Moana journeys forth on the crest of a beautiful wave, inspired by beautiful koa wood carvings inset with LED panels, providing a dazzling glimpse into the magic the ocean holds.
Celebrating the magic that happens when Miguel strums the guitar of Ernesto de la Cruz, the spectacular float inspired by the Disney and Pixar film “Coco” bridges the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead with vibrant marigolds. Fantastical alebrije spirit animals join the procession, along with Miguel’s dog Danté.
“Magic Happens” will be a mix of classic and new stories for every generation with a musical score and new song produced in partnership with Todrick Hall.
Bob Chapek, chairman, Disney Parks, Experiences and Products announced “Magic Happens” will be coming this spring.
