Announced at the D23 Expo was the new Disneyland parade called Magic Happens. This new parade will debut on February 28 and will celebrate moments of magic that are at the heart of so many Disney stories. Magic Happens will feature an energetic musical score and a new song, co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall.
Kicking off the daytime parade will be Mickey Mouse himself. Other floats will include Anna and Elsa from Frozen 2 who explore the mysteries of an enchanted forest protected by Nokk, the mystical water spirit, as well as Kristoff, Sven and Olaf.
Moana will arrive on her voyager canoe on the crest of a towering wave, inspired by beautiful koa wood carvings and inset with dazzling, animated glimpses into the magic the ocean holds.
Joining Moana, and making his Disneyland Resort debut, will be Maui who will be found on his own magical island, along with Pua.
Miguel from Coco will appear in person for the first time and will celebrate the magic that happens when he strums the guitar of Ernesto de la Cruz. This float bridges the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead with vibrant marigolds, and fantastical alebrije spirit animals join the procession, along with Miguel’s dog Danté.
The grand finale of the parade includes Sleeping Beauty with a trio of fairies and Princess Aurora’s gown shimmering between hues of pink and blue.
