Disney Music Parade (ディズニー ミュージックパレード) is a Japanese music/rhythm mobile game developed and published by Taito Corporation for Android and iOS. It was digitally released on January 21, 2021, exclusively in Japan.

Gameplay

The game involves tapping or swiping a smartphone or tablet's touch screen in time with the music of various Disney and Pixar songs. Visually, players play as a holographic train following a track over a background themed after various Disney and Pixar films. The train is implied to be leading a musical parade as per the name of the game. As the train follows the track, different colored dots or "notes" will appear along it, representing the notes of the song that's playing.

  • Blue notes have to be tapped in time to score.
  • Green notes, found only on the expert difficulty, requires two fingers to tap the screen at the same time.
  • Yellow notes, which are found only on the hard and expert difficulties, requires one or two fingers to swipe the screen in specific directions to score. Hard involves single directions up, down, left, or right, while expert also involves diagonals.
  • Red notes have to be tapped and held for a period of time until the end of the note. On hard and expert, the ends of some red notes may require the player to swipe in one or two specific directions in time at the end of a note, much like with a yellow note.

The more notes tapped, held and swiped successfully, the higher the player's score and combo gets. Missing a note, whether by not tapping or holding in time or swiping in the correct direction, will cause the player to lose life energy from a life bar and break their combo. If the life bar runs out, the song prematurely ends unless the player decides to pay a small fee in gems (the game's premium currency) to replenish it and continue. Tapping, holding and swiping notes will also fill a "fever" bar (much like that in Disney Tsum Tsum) which, when filled, automatically triggers "Fever mode" for a temporary boost in points and earned coins.

The ultimate goal is to complete or "clear" the song in as few misses as possible, getting a high ranking based on their score and performance, going from D, C, B, A, all the way up to S. The game also keeps track of how "complete" their performance was based on the timing of their taps and swipes and whether or not they missed; making it to the end of a song with at least one miss indicates a "Clear", tapping and swiping all the notes with at least one "great" or "good" note (indicating early or late taps and swipes that are still in time) is a "Full Combo", while getting all notes perfectly is an "All Perfect" performance. The player's highest accomplishment for a song on a specific difficulty is shown on their song list above each difficulty they completed the song in (e.g. an "All Perfect" each for a song's easy and normal difficulties, a "Full Combo" for its hard difficulty, and a "Clear" for its expert difficulty).

Before the start of a game, players can choose the song's difficulty (easy, normal, hard, or expert, the last of which can only be unlocked for a specific song by clearing it on hard at least once), note sizes (regular size, 1.3 times size, 1.6 times size, and double size), and which set of three parade cars to use. Parade cars feature representations of Disney and Pixar characters, each with an ability attached to them. There are three types of abilities: note boosts, life boosts, and combo boosts; note boosts temporarily increase the score players earn from notes, life boosts replenishes the player's life bar, and combo boosts temporarily increases the combo earned from each successful note. During gameplay, players will charge up their cars' abilities for each successful note. When full, the player can tap on the car's icon at any time to trigger its ability (unless the player chooses beforehand to automatically use abilities during gameplay, in which case a car's ability will be used as soon as it's charged). Each car's ability can only be used once per game, and no other abilities can be used while another ability is still active. On the parade car set select screen before the song, players can choose to select either one of three sets recommended by the game–a set selecting the player's best cars for a song with cars providing "world bonuses" emphasized, a set focusing on note boost cars, and a set focusing on life boost cars—or one of ten (previously five) sets that were set up by the player themselves in the menu. Players can get more parade cars by earning them in events or purchasing them through the game's store with coins and gems.
