In a recent social media post, Guests watched the “Magic Happens” Parade break down. When this show stopped, they watched as  Disney Characters were evacuated off the parade floats and the entire area was shut down.

“One of the floats broke down during the 6:30 Magic Happens so they roped off the whole area and sent these brave CMs in to guard it til it can be towed. It’s been 3 hours and counting!”

The “Magic Happens” Parade is part of the Disney100 Celebration at Disneyland Resort. You can celebrate the return of this unforgettable spectacle that reminds us you don’t need wings to fly, shooting stars are for wishes, and magic doesn’t end at midnight!

“With a wave of his wand, Mickey Mouse leads a cavalcade of fabulous floats, whimsically costumed performers and popular Disney pals around the park and into your hearts—all while moving to a high-energy contemporary musical score that puts a spin on classic Disney hits. In addition, a stirring song co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall brings some of your favorite Disney tales to life like never before.

Watch Moana ride the crest of a beautiful wave in her voyager canoe, followed by Coco’s guitar-strumming Miguel joined by his dog Danté and other fantastical spirit animals and behold the enchanted forest from Frozen 2 as Anna, Elsa, Olaf, Kristoff and Sven pass by. The parade’s grand finale commemorates memorable moments from Disney classics in an incredible procession that’s not to be missed!”
