Disney's ImagiNations Parade was a short-lived parade at Disneyland Park that ran from December 31, 1999 until March 2001.

Development

Disneyland Paris created this parade to celebrate the new millennium, and so it replaced The Wonderful World of Disney Parade as the main daytime parade for the park.

The parade combined large colorful floats of Disney characters with the continents of the world. However, due to lukewarm reception and unpredictable Parsian weather, the parade only lasted 15 months (it was originally scheduled to run for the whole of 2001) and The Wonderful World of Disney Parade was brought back in March of 2001.

Parade Units

The parade had 7 units. A Mickey Mouse & Friends character represented the continents as a giant 11-meter tall float.

Mickey and the Magigolfière

The opening unit represents Mickey Mouse, featuring himself on the top of a large airship consisting of an aeroplane, a flying statue, a jet and a globe, known as the Magigolfière. Donald Duck and Daisy Duck rode on the float as well, while Minnie Mouse, Chip and Dale, Goofy and Pluto strolled on foot.

Asia Unit

Represents Minnie Mouse, and features her wearing a Kimono, holding a Chinese Fan, as well as being covered in many Asian landmarks and features, like the Great Wall of China.

Africa Unit

Represents Chip and Dale. The chipmunks are represented as the Egyptian Sphinx, while animals like giraffes and crocodiles appear.

Oceania Unit

Represents Daisy Duck. The float depicts Daisy surfing in the sea, wearing flower leis, while a Kangaroo surfs at the back.

South America Unit

Represents Donald Duck.

North America Unit

Represents Goofy. Goofy is depicted as the Statue of Liberty, holding the torch and featuring landmarks like a Space Shuttle, Mount Rushmore and

Europe Unit

Represents Pluto. The final float features Pluto with all sorts of European landmarks, like the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the Eiffel Tower.

Trivia

  • Mickey Mouse is the only main character in the parade not to get a huge float of himself. Instead, he rides a huge airplane known as the Magigolfière.
  • The floats were over 11 metres tall, and due to this the two turrets marking the entrance of Fantasyland had to be removed as the floats were so tall.
  • Mickey Mouse and his friends are the only Disney characters in the parade, and all only appear in the first unit. The rest of the parade doesn't contain any characters at all.
