Present-day the working day for the prolonged-awaited return of the Magic Comes about parade at Disneyland.
Magic Happens debuted in late February 2020 and ran for just a couple of months before the pandemic shut the parks. [Here was my review: ‘Magic Happens’ with Disneyland’s next-generation parade.] Immediately after the parks reopened, the parade remained in the warehouse when Disneyland chose as an alternative to revive the Main Avenue Electrical Parade for its 50th anniversary time past calendar year. But now, it really is lastly Magic Happens’ change to appear back again into the spotlight.Juuust in time for much of Southern California to slide under a… checks notes… blizzard warning. Are you kidding me? The most star-crossed parade in Disney historical past can’t catch a split, can it? Just give it the nickname ‘S–t Happens” previously.I experienced prepared to be at Disneyland this afternoon and livestream the parade’s return for you on our Theme Park Insider YouTube channel. But on the lookout at the forecast 100% prospect of rain now during the space, I canceled my reservation last night. Getting driven via a weekday evening hurry hour all through the past “atmospheric river” rainstorm in the Los Angeles place, I vowed that I would hardly ever do that once again. We are forecast to get more than a few inches of rain here in Pasadena just right now, while the surrounding mountains are forecast to get up to eight to 10 toes of snow in this storm.The weather’s so bad currently that Disneyland’s neighbor Knott’s Berry Farm shut for the day, as has Six Flags Magic Mountain, up in Los Angeles County. Disneyland typically cancels parades in favor of wet working day character cavalcades when it pours like this, so I will try out yet again on a sunny day up coming week to convey you that Magic Comes about livestream.

The parade involves two first compositions: the “Magic Occurs” concept at the parade’s starting and a grand finale that involves musical references to past Disney enjoyment spectaculars, like “Try to remember the Magic,” “Needs,” and “Try to remember… Dreams Arrive True.”Princess Aurora’s float in Magic Occurs(Primarily based on a forged member preview Wednesday night time, the only change from the 2020 debut is that “Zip a Dee Doo Dah” is now long gone from the finale, as Disney carries on to exorcise references to the Film-That-Will have to-Not-Be-Named.)
As I wrote in my 2020 overview, “The conceit is that we’re seeing the moments in Disney stories when the magic comes about, from a pumpkin turning into a royal mentor in Cinderella to Arthur pulling Excalibur from the stone. But with its location-on combine of music, motion and electricity, the magic takes place through this welcomed new production.”Here is my online video from that original general performance:
