Prepare yourself for a LOT of photographs and not much else in this section of my trip report! People were already lining the street for the parade, and we found a spot on a wall just outside of Pecos Bill. We got talking to the American family who were also sitting there, and discussing what a shambles Villain’s Unleashed had been, the night before! Glad to know we weren’t the only ones who were disappointed.
We soon heard the sounds of a marching band – and around the corner, the Main Street Philharmonic came walking out playing their brass and drums, followed by the Grand Marshall – a family picked to ride in the car at the front of the parade.
I was going to miss the Celebrate a Dream Come True which Festival of Fantasy replaced, but when I heard the music of this new parade begin, I was very excited! I do love a Disney parade!
Out first was Beauty and the Beast, followed by Cinderella, Princess Tiana and Prince Nazeem (The Princess & The Frog) and Anna and Esla (Frozen)
The floats I the parade are AMAZING! Full of so much detail, and I can’t wait to see this parade again, just to see the new things I can see. I also loved how each float was preceded by a group of dancers. You didn’t know where to look there was so much going on!
The Tangled float followed next, with Rapunzel (frying pan in hand) leading, with Flynn Ryder and some goons swinging behind – an impressive float!
The Little Mermaid float with Ariel sitting atop it was next. I loved this one – it blew out bubbles!
Peter Pan was next, with Wendy by his side, Captain Hook balancing on an anchor beneath the ship, and Tinkerbell sitting on the back of the float, being a cheeky fairy! Finally, the croc brought up the rear!
