Disneyland Resort fizzes with anticipatory areas, those locations that feature curves, turns, and bends, the sorts of thrilling spots where we can’t remove detect what is just around the next corner.
You might be able to quickly name your favorite curve — maybe the one near the end of Space Mountain, or the bend you go around just before your reach the Haunted Mansion’s Hitchhiking Ghosts — but, for many fans, the best corners are the ones found along the Anaheim theme park’s parade route.
For there always seems to be a bend you can’t quite peer around, meaning you’re not sure if Mickey’s float is up next, or Anna and Elsa’s icy wonderland, or the parade’s big finale.
It’s a delicious feeling for the Disneyland devotee, and it is about to fizz again when the “Main Street Electrical Parade’ bleep-blorp-boops back into The Happiest Place on Earth, all to celebrate its 50th anniversary.
Disneyland just revealed what the brand-new grand finale float will look like, a lengthy dazzler that pays tribute to several beloved stories, including “The Princess and the Frog,” “Coco,” “Mulan,” “Moana,” and “Encanto .”
Adding meaning, merriment, and Disney cachet to the colorful and colossal new float? The vibrant vehicle’s super-cute character design is a moving nod to Mary Blair, the creative legend behind “it’s a small world.”
