Dreamers of all ages, keep your eyes on Main Street, U.S.A., and the parade route at Disneyland Park! The first cavalcade since Disneyland Resort’s reopening paraded down the streets today, surprising Disney Guests with smiles, waves, and music.
Cavalcade Surprises Guests at Disneyland Park
Disney fans visiting Disneyland Park today were treated to what may have been the first cavalcade since the park reopened this spring. Small crowds gathered to wave and take photos from the sides, and plenty of classic Disney parade music can be heard.
A video from @trulydest (reposted by theme park blogger @thecalibae) showing the cavalcade surfaced today showing all the fun starting near the “it’s a small world” area. While a bit difficult to note from the scanning video, we can see Peter Pan, Wendy, Hook, Jasmine, Genie, and a slew of Princesses riding in the Omnibus. Minnie Mouse leads the group, front and center on the upper level, along with her driver at the wheel.
Behind the characters, we see a slow-rolling Mickey Mouse parade float seen initially in Mickey’s Soundsational Parade. Character and parade attendants clap their hands and follow along. While we don’t know if this (or any) particular cavalcade is on a schedule (Disney perfects the “surprise and delight” element), we hope there is more to come as the summer rolls along.
Documenting the return of the cavalcade on camera, an Instagram feed-style video from @thecalibae is captioned,
Looks like a calvacade returned today to Disneyland! I have no idea if it’s a today thing or a now on the schedule type of thing. But man it feels good to see something like this return to Disneyland. Video from @trulydest.
Princesses galore loaded up onto the Omnibus for a ride around the park. While Disneyland has featured a variety of character sightings in both Disneyland Park and Disney California Adventure Park, this is so exciting to see the return of a cavalcade, and hopefully in the future, parades! Here on the Omnibus we can see Minnie Mouse, Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Anna, Elsa, and what might be Pocahontas or Moana on the other side of the vehicle.
