Back in 2020, the “Magic Happens” parade debuted for a short, limited-time run at Disneyland. This epic parade celebrates moments of magic that are at the heart of Disney stories. Ever feel those warm and fuzzies when watching Disney movies? Prepare to feel that and more when watching this parade. 

Led by everyone’s favorite mouse, Mickey and all of his pals, stunning floats, costumes and amazing music creates an unforgettable experience for those watching. Moments of magic from Walt Disney Studios and Pixar Animation Studios films are the inspiration for this beloved parade.

Your pals Mickey and Minnie aren’t the only ones you can expect to see during the “Magic Happens” parade. You can catch Moana and Maui on their voyager canoe, Miguel and Dante from Coco and of course, everyone’s favorite, Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff from Frozen 2. Another special addition to the parade is King Arthur and Merlin, who are rarely seen in parades. 

Stunning colors and costumes can be found throughout the parade, including on the Mickey Mouse float. The grand finale of the parade is not to be missed as it includes and commemorates memorable moments from Disney classics. 

We are excited that the “Magic Happens” parade is returning to the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, California in February of 2023. This parade will help us all remember that “You Can Fly,” “Make a Wish Upon a Star” and that all you need is some “Faith, Trust and Pixie Dust.”
