Magic Happens Parade at Disneyland
#Disneyland opened their new #parade, Magic Happens on February 28, 2020. I watched the afternoon and evening version. I like the evening version better, but it's meant to be a daytime parade, so you'll only be able to see it at night during the winter months, when it's dark at 6 pm Pacific time.

As a dancer (a long time ago) and choreographer, I'm always interested in the choreography and dancing, not just the floats and characters. I love the choreography for this parade. It fits so well with the theme of each float. They pulled out all the stops. The floats are beautiful too. I was so surprised to see a float for The Sword and the Stone. It's such an old movie, but #Merlin was great. #Moana got her own float along with #Maui, and I loved the #Polynesian dancers, the females who led off before Moana, and the males, who preceded Maui. Next came the #Coco float led by dancers in wide circle skirts that they can remove to use as a cape--very clever. #Miguel is featured with the guitar to compete, and his ancestors are also represented. Next comes the #Frozen2 float with #Elsa at the top of her ice castle, #Anna and #Olaf near the middle. The float features a representation of the forest with fall colored trees to the back with the ice from Elsa. #Sven stands on the back and #Christoff follows with his hand cart, greeting guests along the way. Now it's time for some classic characters including #Pinocchio, the #BlueFairy, #Aladdin, the #Genie, #FairyGodMother, #PeterPan, and #Tinkerbell, who is walking. I think it's the only parade that has her walking. She usually is on a float and often with her own. #Cinderella follows in her #pumpkin inspired #carriage float. #Merlin and #Authur from #TheSwordInTheStone follow, which surprised me since it's such an old show, but I loved Merlin. #Princess #Tiana got her own float inspired by the trees of the Bayou, and it concluded with #SleepingBeauty with the fairies #Flora, #Fauna, and #Merryweather. #Aurora's dress looked both pink and blue, depending on the light, a nod to the end of the show with "Make it blue" and "Make it pink."
Overall, I really liked the parade. It wasn't as high energy as #Soundsational, but I preferred the choreography and floats to that parade. Nothing will top #PaintTheNight in my book, but I still enjoyed it. Very worth the time.
