Parade Unit

  • Opening: Goofy leads the way on a pink, stylized horse. The Three Little Pigs pull an oversized Mickey Mouse drum toy.  Pinocchio leads a magical train over a piano, with Sleepy and Grumpy as passengers.  Other characters featured in this unit include Clarabelle and Horace, Snow White, and the remaining five dwarfs.
  • The Aristocats: Marie plucks an oversized violin with her brother Berlioz by her side, while Toulouse features on the back.  A purple player piano is the major feature of this float.
  • Joy of Friendship: Lilo and Stitch lead this unit aboard pastel-colored seahorses.  They are followed by puppet versions of Nemo and Gill from Finding Nemo.  Marlin and Dory appear in the mouth of a gigantic seagull on the next float. The Toy Story pals conclude the unit aboard their own float; Slinky and Mr. Potato Head pedal an enormous bicycle, which Jessie and Rex sit in the basket of, while Woody and Buzz dance atop a "Woody's Roundup" record player behind them.
  • Aladdin (Wish): The Genie's horse, which precedes the unit, is designed to look like a stylized camel.  He is followed by a number of genies and spirits.  Aladdin, Princess Jasmine and their pages are carried by Abu, as transformed into an elephant.  They are followed by a small band of Arabian-dressed dancers.
  • Princesses & Fairies (Beauty): Rapunzel appears first on a gorgeous white horse with a pink mane.  She is followed by the Ugly Duckling and a few pink flower dancers.  Snow White, Cinderella, Belle, and Aurora follow on an ornately-decorated swan float; this is attached to the fairy garden float, which features Tinker Bell and two fair friends.  More fairies and bugs round out the unit.
  • Alice in Wonderland (Mysterious): In the vein of the previous horse and camel floats, Alice rides the butterfly version of her film's curious Caterpillar.  The Mad Hatter and a number of tea party guests follow her; the hatter pushes a small float featuring paper-cutout versions of himself and the March Hare.  The King of Hearts leads a procession of various unique characters, including an enormous float version of the Queen of Hearts, her playing card subjects, and Tweedle-Dum and Tweedle-Dee.
  • Winnie the Pooh (Dream): Rabbit kicks off the unit aboard a pink and yellow Woozle.  A large bandleader Heffalump leads a small procession of honeybee dancers.  Tigger and Winnie the Pooh ride atop honey jars overflowing with Pooh's favorite snack, while stationary versions of Piglet, Roo and Eeyore float beneath them.
  • Finale: The parade culminates in a tribute to Disney's classic characters and the 1964 film Mary Poppins.  Mary Poppins and Bert lead the final unit on identical horses to those they ride in Disneyland's Soundsational Parade, which are in the same design as the horses used throughout this parade.  A few penguins follow them.  Donald, Daisy, Pluto, Chip and Dale ride the next float, which is an enormous vista featuring a carousel, canopies and an oversized doll version of Minnie Mouse on the back.  A squad of chimney sweeps lead the way for the final float, which features Minnie Mouse and Mickey Mouse aboard a giant hot air balloon made out of Mickey Mouse balloons.  The balloon is held up by an oversized doll of Goofy, and similar giant dolls of Mickey and Donald wave goodbye to the guests.
