Disneyland is celebrating 100 years in BIG ways! There are new daytime and evening offerings and I wanted to give you a sneak peek of these today.
First is the daytime parade, Magic Happens. This parade was held for a mere two weeks in 2020 prior to the COVID-19 lockdown, but it will be back in full swing on February 24.
Witness this whimsical parade celebrating magical moments from legendary Disney stories! This 40-minute parade is located at Disneyland Park.
With a wave of his wand, Mickey Mouse leads a cavalcade of fabulous floats, whimsically costumed performers and popular Disney pals around the park and into your hearts—all while moving to a high-energy contemporary musical score that puts a spin on classic Disney hits. In addition, a stirring song co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall brings some of your favorite Disney tales to life like never before.
Watch Moana ride the crest of a beautiful wave in her voyager canoe, followed by Coco’s guitar-strumming Miguel joined by his dog Danté and other fantastical spirit animals and behold the enchanted forest from Frozen 2 as Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven pass by. The parade’s grand finale commemorates memorable moments from Disney classics in an incredible procession that’s not to be missed!
Wondrous Journeys will begin lighting up the skies above Disneyland on January 27. This all-new nighttime spectacular celebrates 100 years of Walt Disney Animation Studios in “an experience that ignites the dreamer in all of us.”
This 13-minute show is located at Disneyland Park.
Go on an epic adventure through 100 years of Walt Disney Animation Studios in this thrilling nighttime spectacular. Gaze in wonder as Sleeping Beauty Castle and Main Street, U.S.A. become a marvelous canvas for 100 years of Walt Disney Animation Studios storytelling. Thrill as talented artists transform empty pages brimming with possibility into beloved Disney characters and vivid animated worlds awash with magic.
All of this and more is brought to life by soaring music, stunning state-of-the-art projection technology—and on select nights, sensational pyrotechnics!
For over 100 years, Walt Disney Animation Studios has unlocked a special kind of wonder in our lives. These films have inspired us to dream bigger, unleash our spirit of adventure, discover the power within—and realize that it’s kind of fun to do the impossible.
