Earlier today, the official Disney Parks Blog shared some brand new concept art and a behind the scenes video for their exciting new parade
Magic Happens, set to debut on February 28th.
Magic Happens celebrates moments of magic from Disney and Pixar stories, which will be brought to life on a grand scale with stunning floats, artistic costumes and imaginative music co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall. The parade features distinct stories with a mix of characters, making it feel contemporary and classic, fun and regal, and surprising and familiar – all at the same time.

Take a peek at the new art for the floats below:
Cinderella Dazzles in the pumpkin before turning into a carriage, whisking her off to the ball.
Sword In The Stone finally gets represented a little more at the park as Merlin wisely leads the way for young Arthur, who finds the magic within himself as he pulls the sword from the stone, claiming his place upon the throne. Tiana and Naveen are seen amidst a swirl of golden flowers where they share a kiss, completing their transformation back into human forms.
Also, check out this behind the scenes video quickly highlighting how the Imagineers are bringing this awe-inspiring parade to life and giving us a little more details on what we can expect.
Here are some previously shown highlights of the new parade, including a few more sneak peeks:
From Walt Disney Animation Studios’ record-breaking hit Frozen 2, Anna and Elsa explore the mysteries of an enchanted forest protected by Nokk, the mystical water spirit, as their friends Kristoff, Sven and Olaf tag along.
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. Joining Moana on her journey is legendary demigod, Maui, making his Disneyland Resort debut on his own magical island, along with Moana’s adorable pet pig, Pua.
Miguel appears in person for the first time, celebrating the magic that happens when he strums the guitar of Ernesto de la Cruz in the Disney and Pixar film, Coco. This spectacular float bridges the Land of the Living and the Land of the Dead with vibrant marigolds, and fantastical alebrije spirit animals join the procession, along with Miguel’s dog Danté.
The regal grand finale of Magic Happens celebrates magical moments from several classic Disney stories, including the happily-ever-after scene from Sleeping Beauty with a trio of fairies and Princess Aurora’s gown shimmering between hues of pink and blue.
Magic Happens will remind us we don’t need wings to fly, that shooting stars were made to wish upon, and that magic doesn’t stop at midnight.
