All-New ‘Magic Happens’ Parade to Debut in Spring 2020 at Disneyland

D23 Expo took place in August.  I have always wanted to go. Everyone is welcome to attend, you just have to purchase a ticket, but August is always a crazy month for us. It is Carter's birthday, Blake's birthday, the kids start school, and Blake is in busy season. I tell myself every year I am just going to go alone for the three days, but I never end up going. We will see about next year. It is an amazing convention that discusses all things Disney. There are a few things I wanted to share with you that I am personally excited about, so there will be a few blog posts going up all about Disney and the D23 Expo. A couple weeks ago it was announced that a new parade would debut in Spring 2020 at Disneyland. This is so exciting and after seeing some of the sketches I cannot wait. To me, there is nothing better than grabbing some ice cream or Dole whip, finding a curb on Main Street and watching the parade. I can watch a parade over and over again. They never get old and watching Carter and Kennedy wave and scream to their favorite characters is always the best. So get ready for a new parade this spring!

The new parade is called Magic Happens. It is a day time parade and possibly will take the place of Soundsational Parade. The Soundsational Parade has been around since 2011. Magic Happens will have classic and new Disney and Pixar stories. This is so exciting! Of course, the parade will include Mickey Mouse and friends.

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.

The regal grand finale of “Magic Happens” parade celebrates magical moments from classic Disney stories, including the trio of fairies from “Sleeping Beauty” who transform Princess Aurora’s gown from pink to blue and back again!

In addition, the parade will feature ​even more floats and characters, an energetic musical score and a new song produced in partnership with singer-songwriter Todrick Hall. The high-energy music combines this original song with classic Disney tunes in a fresh, contemporary style.
