Let’s face it, the ’90s were a pretty spectacular decade at Disney. Lion King, Pocahontas, Beauty and the Beast… Flubber! We know what you’re thinking, how could it have been any better? Answer: the daytime parades at Disneyland and Walt Disney World definitely upped the ’90s ante. (Note: curb sitting on your local Main Street U.S.A. is definitely recommended while reading this article.)
Aladdin’s Royal Caravan Parade (1992-1995)
Imagine that scene from Aladdin where Prince Ali shows up in Agrabah, except Agrabah is a Disney Park and its happening for reals. Make way, here he comes, ring bells, beat the drums…
Party Gras Parade (1990)
Calypso music. ✓ Party beads. ✓ ✓ Four story tall Disney character balloons. Where do we sign up?
Mulan Parade (1998-2001)
With premieres at both Disneyland and Walt Disney World, this parade brought the pageantry of Mulan to the streets of the Parks.
The Lion King Celebration (1994-1997)
For three years, Simba, Pumbaa, Timon and the Pride Rock gang Hakuna Matata’d their way down Disneyland’s Main Street, U.S.A.
We know what you’re thinking… what gives? No Mighty Ducks parade! Not even a float?!? We’re working on getting an official statement from Coach Bombay, but admit it – the Flying V formation on Main Street, U.S.A. would have looked pretty cool.
