Belle and Beast started the parade on the front of the first float.

Cinderella and Prince Charming on a rotating platform on the first float.

Tiana and Prince Naveen on another rotating platform at the back of the first float.

That brings us to the other performers on the back of the first float: Anna, Elsa and Olaf!  The platforms on the floats rotate very slowly so I almost missed them.

Next float: Tangled!  This guy in the mime suit was one of my favorite moments of the parade.

The Snuggly Duckling float was quite impressive.

Next up was the Little Mermaid float.  It included some of the most creatively dressed performers in the parade.

Coral girl was very mysterious and seductive...

Next up was the Peter Pan float.  The Lost Boys were very funny.

Captain Hook was underneath a giant rainbow for some reason.  Maybe it's something from the movie?  Feel free to let me know in the comments.

Gotta love the Tick Tock Croc.

Next up is the Brave float.  Yes, Merida is riding a giant set of bagpipes.

The Three Good Fairies from Sleeping Beauty.  Maleficent is obviously planning on eating them.

The stilt-walkers were pretty cool.

The raven-masked performer was pretty impressive.  Unfortunately, I didn't get a really good shot of him this time.

Maleficent stole the show.


Still hungry after the Three Good Fairies, Maleficent is going to eat some tourists.

Next up is some shenanigans with Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

There were also a lot of other characters thrown in there.

Coming up towards the end is the Monstro float.

And here comes the Donald/Daisy/Fantasia float.

Last up is Mickey and Minnie and some Hippo ballerinas.

Thanks for reading!
