[VIDEO] Disney Magic on Parade! opening day performance

Tuesday, 10th April 2012 at 16:09
Disneyland Paris 20th Anniversary Launch Weekend

Bright blue skies came out on 1st April for the first official public performance of Disney Magic on Parade!, which you can watch in our exclusive video right here. Just a day earlier, the special premiere performance had gone out under thick clouds with a sharp chill in the air as the “press event curse” struck again — that unwritten Disney park rule which means any major organised event will be struck by less-than-perfect weather.

This opening day performance was also thankfully missing the over-abundance of parade guards the previous day, almost overpowering the floats themselves. And if you’d have been there, you could have breathed in the scents of each float again, missing the day before; a unique feature of Disney’s Once Upon a Dream Parade which was thankfully revived just in time.

Donald Duck, rather than Tinker Bell, ended the parade on its first day, and it seems the two will continue to share the role depending on the fairy’s availability — no doubt being very busy with a certain nighttime spectacular right now.

  • We were there that weekend, what a magical time we all had it was FANTASTIC.Its nice to relive the magic.

  • Fantastic parade, looks really energetic and fun. Although I miss the character’s voices as the pass by, they make it feel more intimate and personal.
    Also will Belle have a carriage of her own? I’m think I read somewhere on here that she was.
    However well done DLP!!

  • Who is the bear next to Goofy?
