Celebrate a Dream Come True parade

| January 23, 2009

The new Celebrate a Dream Come True parade at Magic Kingdom in the Walt Disney World resort started today.  This parade replaces the Disney Dreams Come True parade.

This is part of the new “What Will You Celebrate?” campaign at the Disney parks this year. Main Street was crowded as we all waited for the floats to come down the street.  There is lots and lots of dancers in the parade.  They came about half way down the street and stopped, where they performed to the new theme song for the parade.  If you want to see the show, I would suggest being on the upper part of the street before you get to Casey’s on the corner.

Once they performed the parade started to move.  The floats have a thought on the side and we are encouraged to celebrate our dreams. It moves down the street and we are treated to our favorite Disney characters.

What did I think of the parade?  I thought it was better than the previous parade, but not as memorable as the Share a Dream Parade from several years ago.  I think they need to think about using something other than dreaming as their theme. I think celebrating got lost in this new parade.

I did like the attention to details in their costumes.  The women had streaks in their hair that matched their costumes.  Maybe it will grow on me.

    Kathy, your pictures are stunning as always. Wow, it looks like your trees are blooming already. What a gorgeous day.

    So, instead of “Disney Dreams Come True Parade” it’s the “Celebrate a Dream Come True Parade”? They only changed one word? Doesn’t seem like all that much of a change to me.

    What time was the 3:00p parade?

  • Kathy Werling

    Actually the 3 PM parade hit Main St. about 3:25. :)

    The photos are just beautiful! Is the music the same Disney Dreams Come True music but just with different words or did they get rid of the old song altogether?

    Thanks for the beautiful pictures Kathy. Love those Florida blue skies in the background.

    Wow – Disney is really taking this ‘green’ thing seriously, even their parades are recycled.

    They changed a few words on a banner…and talk about getting their monies worth out of those floats. They are all from previous parades with minor adjustments.

    From now on I am going to refer to this as the ‘Recycle the Magic’ parade.

    Yeah, I was pretty disappointed in the new parade. Looking at the pictures, the beginning of the parade looks great! Things look new, but then as it gets to the princess floats, it’s the same as before! It looks like they might have run out of ideas (or time) halfway through designing the new parade :(

    Thanks for the pictures. Too bad the parade is so similar to the previous ones. “Recycle the Magic” is hilarious!!!!

    Beautiful pics.
    Kathy: what camera/lens do you use ?
    I saw that it is difficult to take good pictures at that time because half the scene is in shadow and half is under sun, not uniform exposure value.
    You think can be abetter place to position the camera ?
