During the 25th Anniversary year, from April 15, 2008 to April 14, 2009, the parade would stop for show mode four times during its course, once in part A and once in part B at every section of the parade route. The average number of show mode stops for a Tokyo Disneyland parade is three. In the show mode, a specially arranged version of the song "What Time is It?" from High School Musical 2 mixed in with the 25th Anniversary theme song "Dream Goes On" would play and guests would be asked to clap their hands and dance along in celebration. Since April 15, 2009, the parade has carried out without stopping for a show mode and removed the "25" from the final float.
Pirate Moon Unit: Based on the 1953 animated film Peter Pan. From Skull Rock to another, this one is in the shape of a skull and serves as the throne of Captain Hook. Peter Pan is close by, at the helm of a ship suspended beneath an immense, dreamlike moon. It was later relocated to Disney Stars on Parade.
Bubbles Unit: This unit culminates with a 90-foot-long magical caravan of characters featuring The Three Little Pigs, Pinocchio, and Dumbo. The circus clowns were in a splashy carnival of color. There’s Pegasus horses, The Hippos, and The Alligators from Fantasia, also the sassy Bubble Girls and the Ringmaster celebrating as well. It was later relocated to Festival of Fantasy Parade.
The individual "hovercrafts" from the Pixar Pals unit were relocated to Disneyland Paris and used for some of their special events. The Little Green Men spaceship from the Pixar Pals unit was relocated to Disneyland and used for the nighttime parade Paint the Night.
Main Chorus Lyrics
There'll come a day
When you're losing your way
And you wonder where you belong
They say that home is where the heart is
So follow your heart! And know that you can't go wrong
If you feel lost, and on your own, and far from home,
You're never alone (never alone)
And your friends
The ones who care
They will all be waiting there
With love to share
Your heart will lead you
Where you belong
Your heart will lead you home
