Disney Cruise Line Float Coming to Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade!

Disney and one of our favorite holiday traditions are colliding in a fantastic way! We previously shared the fun news that Star Wars Baby Yoda, AKA “Grogu,” from the popular Disney+ The Mandalorian series will be featured in a BIG way during Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Disney Parks Blog announced, “There will be an extra sprinkle of pixie dust on the Parade this year as Disney Cruise Line’s brand-new cruise ship float embarks on its maiden voyage in New York City as part of the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade! The imaginatively designed “ship” has been christened “Magic Meets the Sea” and is inspired by the fantastical style of the Disney Wish, which sets sail in summer 2022.”
