If you follow any Disneyland peeps on Instagram (and you should definitely follow me!) then I’m sure you have seen tons of photos from the new parade, Paint the Night. I’m not going to lie to you, the pictures do not do it justice. I was blown away the first time I saw it and it continues to impress me each time I watch. I love that there are elements of the Main Street Electrical Parade, which was always my favorite when I was a kid, but it takes the concept to a whole other level. Hopefully you are going to be able to make a trip to Disneyland to see the parade in person, but if not, here are some of my favorite moments!
These fairies kick off the parade and one of the coolest things is that they can interact with guests wearing special ears by changing the colors.
Tinkerbell is one the first float, and we all know how I feel about her, but the way she floats around is pretty cool.
Peter comes next, riding on the title float.
Lumiere, Genie, and Tigger are next in line.
The Monsters Inc. float was one of my favorites.
The audience favorite seems to be the Cars section.
I think my absolute number one moment during the parade is the Little Mermaid float.
Then comes the Toy Story gang.
And of course, you have to have some princesses.
Obviously we can’t have a Disney show without Frozen.
And closing out the show is the main man himself, Sorcerer Mickey.
Again, nothing can compare to seeing the parade in person, it is truly spectacular. But hopefully this was a nice little taste for those of you who haven’t seen it yet or might not be able to make it out to the parks (though I imagine it will be running for a long time). Have you been able to see Paint the Night in person? What was your favorite part?
