Another movie based parade tie in. Less popular than its predecessors, it lasted only one season.
Disney's Hollywood Studios
A "Theban Family of the Day" was selected to head the parade wearing togas, laurel leaf crowns and ride in gold chariots pulled by bicycle-riding Greek soldiers. The gospel-revival/pep-rally/Homecoming procession featured commentary by "Ridges Philbinylus" and "Appollonia Airheadenese." In addition to floats, there were cheerleaders and a giant inflatable Cyclops. Phil, Meg, and Pegasus were all featured in the parade. An angry Hades had smoke effects on his float.
The parade was under the name Hercules the Hero and ran from July to October 1997.
The mini-parade was under the name Hercules Happening, it lasted about 5 minutes and there were only two floats. This parade followed as the big parade that took place on the parade route in the afternoon. This departed from Town Square, and went down Main Street USA and through Central Plaza to Fantasyland. The float was recycled into The Wonderful World of Disney Parade in the first run.
