Disneyland Resort has shared another sneak peek of the upcoming Magic Happens parade, also unveiling more parade floats inspired by Cinderella, The Sword in the Stone and The Princess and the Frog.

Magic Happens is debuting on February 28 at Disneyland Park. It celebrates moments of magic from Disney and Pixar, with Mickey Mouse leading it down Main Street, USA.

The daytime spectacular will feature incredible floats, artistic costumes and imaginative music, co-composed by singer-songwriter Todrick Hall.

Previously, Disneyland teased floats inspired by Frozen 2, Moana, Coco and Sleeping Beauty. Characters will include Anna and Elsa, Moana and Maui, and Coco’s Miguel and Danté.

Now, the theme park in California has unveiled floats themed to Cinderella, The Sword in the Stone, and The Princess and the Frog.

In new images, we see Cinderella’s grand pumpkin magically transforming into a glistening carriage to take her to the ball.

The Sword in the Stone float features Merlin leading the way for Arthur, who finds the magic within himself and pulls the sword from the stone.

Meanwhile, Tiana and Naveen from The Princess and the Frog are shown surrounded by golden flowers as they share a kiss and return to human form.

“The costumes for Magic Happens are truly unbelievable. We are embodying the spirit of the movies, you’ve never seen things like this on the streets of Disneyland Park before.”

“It’s just gonna be unbelievable.”
