This coming New Year’s Day the Disneyland Resort will have a dazzling float in the 127th Rose Parade. The parade will be broadcast live from Pasadena, CA at 8 a.m. (PST). The theme of the parade is “Find Your Adventure” and the Disneyland Resort float features some of the most exciting adventures that await guests at the Happiest Place on Earth.
At the center of the float will be a sparkling Sleeping Beauty Castle along with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse welcoming everyone to the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. On either sides of the castle are two adventures that are brought to life at the Disneyland Resort. One side features Elsa’s ice castle accompanied by Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff. On the other side is a thrilling adventure dedicated to the Star Wars films and exciting new Star Wars experiences at Disneyland.
The 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration has dazzled guests since it began in the spring of this year. The sparkling décor and spectacular entertainment, including the after-dark “Paint the Night” parade, “Disneyland Forever” fireworks and “World of Color – Celebrate!’, will continue to thrill guests through September 5, 2016.
The Disney animated film “Frozen” was released in 2013 and has since become extremely popular. Guests at the Disneyland Resort have been able to relive the adventures of Anna and Elsa in many ways, including character encounters at Disney California Adventure Park, floats in “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” and “Paint the Night” in Disneyland, a live “Frozen” show at Fantasy Faire in Disneyland, and a “Frozen” sing-along celebration. In the summer of 2016 an all-new “Frozen”-inspired stage musical will open in the Hyperion Theater at Disney California Adventure.
Season of the Force recently debuted in Tomorrowland at Disneyland and features new Star Wars themed experiences as well as enhancements to popular attractions. Star Wars Launch Bay allows guests to encounter favorite characters, take a peek behind-the-scenes of the Star Wars films, and find special exhibits and collectibles. Space Mountain has been transformed into Hyperspace Mountain and Star Tours features a new destination from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Other highlights include a short film connecting iconic scenes from the Star Wars saga called “Star Wars: Path of the Jedi”, and a reimagined “Jedi Training: Trials of the Temple” show featuring new characters and a new villain.
The appearance of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration float in the 2016 Rose Parade marks the continuation of a tradition Disney relationship with the Tournament of Roses that began in 1938.
