New Parade Magic Happens Coming to Disneyland Spring 2020
Disneyland Resort is finally getting a whole new parade! Announced at D23 Expo was in Spring 2020 the new parade Magic Happens will debut. It’s a daytime parade, so fans are assuming that it will be replacing Soundsational Parade, which has been around since 2011, but no official announcement has been made on that. I love Soundsational, but I am so excited to see a new parade!
Magic Happens will be a combination of classic and new Disney and Pixar stories, including Moana, Coco, and Sleeping Beauty floats.
The Disney Parks Blog mentioned that the parade will also include Mickey Mouse and his pals. Joining the Coco float will be a procession of alebrije spirit animals, including Danté. On the Moana float, there will be wood carvings inset with LED panels, and on the Sleeping Beauty float we will see Princess Aurora’s gown transform from pink to blue.
The music will have an upbeat score, written by Todrick Hall. At D23 Expo, Jordan Fisher performed the song live:
The song is just as catchy as “Get Your Ears On” from Mickey’s Mix Magic, which has me excited! I also love that this parade, like Paint the Night will have a mix of both classic Disney, new Disney, and Pixar characters!
