Led by Mickey Mouse and his pals, this daytime spectacular celebrates moments of magic from Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios films as they are brought to life on a grand scale with stunning floats, artistic costumes and an energetic musical score combined with beloved Disney tunes. In addition to the magnificent floats, the parade route along Main Street, U.S.A., fills with dynamic performers and more than two dozen Disney and Pixar characters.

The parade by Disney Live Entertainment features distinct stories with a mix of characters,
making it feel contemporary and classic, fun and regal, and surprising and familiar – all at the
same time.

Fun facts about ‘Magic Happens’
• The parade features nine floats created as pieces of moving art, with their lines and
aesthetic design working to tell a story along the parade route. Alongside are more than
90 performers, and more than two dozen of them are Disney and Pixar characters.
• Two original songs add to the musical flow of the parade: the main theme, “Magic
Happens,” and a special song for the grand finale. The finale score includes musical
nods to past Disney entertainment productions that have special meaning to show
director Jordan Peterson, weaving in themes from the “Remember the Magic” parade as
well as the “Wishes” and “Remember… Dreams Come True” fireworks spectaculars.
• The parade’s costume design draws inspiration directly from modern runways,
making each costume look fashion-forward, yet uniquely Disney.
• Featuring a musical score and new songs co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick
Hall, the “Magic Happens” soundtrack and choreography are heavily influenced by
today’s pop culture, putting a contemporary spin on classic Disney hits.
