Though Magic Happens debuted at Disneyland Park in early 2020, the daytime parade only graced the beloved Park for roughly a month until the COVID-19 pandemic closed Disneyland’s gates for over a year.

Chairperson of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts Josh D’Amaro was thrilled to give a sneak peek into the future of the Disneyland Resort as Walt Disney’s first Magic Kingdom officially comes back to life with new attractions like Mickey and Minnie’s Runaway Railway and thrilling spectaculars like the latest World of Color ONE.
Every Disney fan is ready for that classic Disneyland to feel about returning, and the arrival of Magic Happens is the best step forward that fans could hope for. While it’s unclear how long Magic Happens will remain at the Parks, it’s clear that Walt Disney Imagineering wants to keep this fun experience in Anaheim, California, for as long as possible.
