On January 8, 2020, Disneyland rolled out the red carpet to show off the latest elaborate costume creations for their upcoming Magic Happens parade, debuting next month. With a backdrop of three of the new giant-sized floats, Disney sent parade performers walking the "catwalk" backstage behind the Disneyland to unveil costumes inspired by films.
Mickey's Opening Unit:
Moana Unit: Based on the 2016 animated film. On her voyager wa‘a (or canoe), Moana journeys forth on the crest of a beautiful wave, inspired by beautiful koa wood carvings inset with LED panels, providing a dazzling glimpse into the magic the ocean holds. Also a smaller float is where Maui will stand, joined by Moana’s pet pig, Pua.
Coco Unit: Based on the 2017 Disney and Pixar film. Celebrating the magic that happens when Miguel Rivera strums the guitar of Ernesto de la Cruz on one end and Héctor and Imelda on the other, the spectacular float bridges the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead with vibrant marigolds. Fantastical alebrije spirit animals join the procession, along with Miguel’s dog Dante.
