“‘Magic Happens’ celebrates magical moments in the lives of our Disney and Pixar characters, all brought to life on a grand scale,” said Jordan Peterson, Show Director for Disney Live Entertainment. “I can’t wait for Disneyland Park guests to once again delight in the magic of ‘Coco,’ the transformation of Cinderella, the moment Arthur pulls the sword from the stone and so many more!”

The parade includes nine floats that bring to life favorite stories from Walt Disney Animation Studios and also the Pixar Animation Studios. There are over 90 performers in the parade and over two dozen of them are Disney and Pixar characters. As the magical moments are brought to life with the floats, there are also musical themes intertwined that add to the magic. This includes two original musical themes that were written for this parade. Listen closely and hear the themes from the Remember the Magic parade as well as the Wishes and Remember… Dreams Come True fireworks spectaculars.
