Shanghai Disney’s Magical Parade:Mulan Takes the Lead (Shanghai Disneyland Series 7)

Shanghai Disney’s Magical Parade 
Mulan Takes the Lead
Shanghai Disneyland Series 7 

The Magical Parade is probably what defines Disneyland - ‘
The Happiest Place on Earth’   and nothing could make one
 happier than watching this theme park’s street extravaganza.


We were able to catch the parade
on our first day in Shanghai Disney,


…but we were positioned way back the humongous crowd-
so we decided to leave and just watched it the next day.


We arrived at the park just in time
as the parade was about to begin,


…and we secured a roadside spot
eight at the end of Mickey Avenue,


…right in- front of the Gardens of Imagination.

The Shanghai Disney’s Magical Parade
began with a vintage car carrying the VIP

Then came the Toy Story characters,




…in a humongous futuristic float.

It was followed with the medieval 
designed float of Tangled-


...with Rapunzel and Flynn Rider aboard.



The vibrant Finding Nemo float was an eye candy,



…with all the colorful sea creature- costumed
vivacious dancers prancing and dancing around.



The ethereal Frozen float came next,

…with sisters Anna and Elsa drawing
shrieks from the excited roadside crowd.


It was followed by the humongous
Marshmallow the Ice Monster.

Mulan float was preceded by a medieval Chinese Army
 marching in an almost  perfectly choreographed unison.

It was a sight to behold.


Then came the gigantic float with Mulan
astride a huge vegetarian- bodied horse.


It is probably the most elaborate  float on this Didney parade  as it was 
filled  with numerous intricate symbolic Chinese figures  on the float.


The last one was a Genie topped float,



…carrying assorted Disney characters,


either riding the float,


…or interacting with the roadside audience.
