Exclusive to the Disneyland Resort in California, “Magic Happens” is the newest original daytime parade to come out of Walt Disney Imagineering, featuring the stars of the latest Disney movies such as Coco, Moana, and Frozen 2, as well as an unforgettable song co-written by Todrick Hall.
According to Disney, the limited return of “Magic Happens” will be part of the Disney100 Celebration which kicks off next year.
Disneyland Resort states on its website,
As part of the Disney100 Celebration at Disneyland Resort, 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.

While many recent changes to Disney Parks have been credited to the sudden return of CEO Bob Iger, it is unclear if the decision to bring back this exciting parade was made before or after Chapek’s departure.
