MAGIC HAPPENS parade debuted earlier this year at Disneyland and enjoyed a few weeks of its time in the limelight before the global COVID-19 closures of Disney Parks. Now, Disney brings you in for a front-row look at the beautiful new parade which boasts colorful costumes and an energetic new soundtrack.
MAGIC HAPPENS features nine newly designed floats, highlighting magic from classic Walt Disney Animation Studios tales, such as “The Sword in the Stone,” “Cinderella” and “Sleeping Beauty,” to more recent stories, including “Frozen 2,” “Moana” and “The Princess and the Frog,” as well as Disney and Pixar’s “Coco.”
The new floats were created as pieces of moving art, with their lines and aesthetic design telling a story along the parade route, while also evoking a sense of magic. The stories seen in “Magic Happens” are rooted in iconic Disney lore, but the soundtrack, costume design and choreography are heavily influenced by today’s contemporary designers.
