The Disney Parks and Resorts panel is arguably the most highly-anticipated panel at D23 every two years.
After discussing ongoing, confirmed projects (like Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge), CEO Bob Chapek announced a new parade coming to Disneyland in spring 2020.
The “Magic Happens” parade will remind guests you don’t need wings to fly and will feature floats from movies we’ve never seen in Disney Parks parades before like Moana and Coco.
On her voyager wa‘a (or canoe), Moana journeys forth on the crest of a beautiful wave, inspired by beautiful koa wood carvings inset with LED panels, providing a dazzling glimpse into the magic the ocean holds.
The regal grand finale of “Magic Happens” parade celebrates magical moments from classic Disney stories, including the trio of fairies from “Sleeping Beauty” who transform Princess Aurora’s gown from pink to blue and back again.
The music for the parade will be worked on by Todrick Hall.
