“Magic Happens” parade at Disneyland Park celebrates the awe-inspiring moments of magic that are at the heart of so many Disney stories. This new daytime spectacular features stunning floats, beautiful costumes and beloved Disney characters. Mickey Mouse leads the way, gliding along on glistening swirls of magic emanating from a giant, iridescent magical hat.
On her voyager canoe, Moana journeys forth on the crest of a towering wave, inspired by beautiful koa wood carvings, and inset with dazzling, animated glimpses into the magic the ocean holds.
From Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2,” Anna and Elsa explore the mysteries of the Enchanted Forest protected by the Nokk, the mystical water spirit, as their friends Kristoff, Sven and Olaf tag along.
Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen glide on this gorgeous down by the Bayou float.
Cinderella travels inside a grand pumpkin, just as it magically transforms into a glistening carriage to whisk her off to the ball.
Just look at this incredible gilded castle float for Sleeping Beauty - Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip. The three fairies Flora, Fauna and Merryweather are leading the way.
The Park's first new daytime parade in nearly a decade—and an unforgettable spectacle that reminds us wings aren’t needed to fly, shooting stars were created for wishes and magic doesn’t end at midnight! Magic Happens Parade begins today!
You'll be mad for Miss Mindy's captivating Cheshire Cat and his famous toothy grin. He happily welcomes you to Wonderland with a charming mini mome rath. Be sure to add this delightfully devious shapeshifter to your collection before he disappears!
Not only is his grin mischievous, but that wink! You know he is up to something. I love his heart shaped nose with a whiskered mustache and how he stands confidently with his hands on his hips.
Note Cheshire's polka dot ears and white collar.
The Mome Rath looks up wide eyed, hoping not to be stepped on, no doubt.
The curls of his hair are even visible from behind.
Look closely and you'll see his paw prints are in the shape of a heart. His fluffy tail has a reddish colored tip and helps keep him balanced. No doll stand required.
Miss Mindy's boxes are even show stoppers. I love the stage and curtain design. You may chose to display the vinyl figures in their open front boxes, but I prefer to keep them out in the open.
World of Miss Mindy dolls are available at Hot Topic.
Cars Land is a awesome at Disney's California Adventure. It's amazing to me the creativity of this land specifically utilizing everything car themed. They didn't overlook a thing.
The landscape throughout Cars Land continues the legendary, detail-oriented storytelling that can only be found at Disney Parks. From the tail-light “flowers” at Cozy Cone Motel to the tire-inspired topiaries just outside Casa Della Tires, the landscape looks as if the beloved cast of “Cars” decorated each of their homes in Cars Land. The dry, rocky look of Cars Land also immerses guests in the Route 66 theme.
The atmosphere outside Flo's V8 Cafe is sooooo 1950s! I love the colors and the music.
Modeled after roadside eateries along the original Route 66, Flo’s V8 Cafe is a delicious quick-service dining location for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Now, guests may use the mobile ordering feature on the Disneyland app, for convenient mobile ordering and quick pick-up at Flo’s. Some of the menu’s highlights include Flo’s famous fried chicken, brioche French toast with salted caramel and bananas and Flo’s classic shake for dessert.
Radiator Springs Car Racers.
Kick the fun into overdrive as you buckle up for a road race featuring familiar car-acters, fantastic scenery and “wheel” thrills.
Tour Ornament Valley and arrive in Radiator Springs—the cutest little town in Carburetor County—where the movie Cars springs to life.
As you prep for the big race, all the locals show up to help. Mater, Lightning McQueen, Doc Hudson, Sally, Luigi, Guido, Mack and Ramone are all rooting for you!
Take a quick spin into either Luigi's Casa Della Tires or Ramone’s House of Body Art to get a racing makeover—then hit the road.
Ready, Get Set, Go!
Meet your friendly competition at the starting line and get ready to race for first place! Zip over hills, zoom around high-banked turns and cruise down camelback straightaways past spectacular red-rock formations.
Even if your car comes in second, this is one race where everyone’s a winner!
The Cozy Cone Motel is where you can take photos with Lightning McQueen and Tow Mater.
Cozy Cone Motel and Fillmore’s Taste-In offer a wide variety of delicious treats from organic fruits to chili “cone” queso.
Cars Land features three immersive family attractions showcasing characters and settings from the Disney•Pixar film, "Cars," including one of the largest and most elaborate themed environments ever created for a Disney park. McQueen and Mater will be greeting park guests daily outside the Cozy Cone Motel on Route 66.
Just after sunset Radiator Springs LIGHTS UP neon you'll can see the land come alive. It's magical.
Growing up in Los Angeles in the 70s/80s we visited Disneyland on a regular basis and often after school, before "Annual Passes".
