Disney California Adventure Park
Five floats from fantastic films feature puppets, performers and Disney·Pixar Characters—plus, fun touches like bubbles and water sprays.
Play along! Get ready to dance to spirited music, be awed by spectacular performers and see so many Disney·Pixar Pals.
Characters and Floats
Leading the parade, you may find the lovable Characters—including a baton-twirling Roz, a drum-beating Sully and a wise-cracking Mike—from Monsters, Inc.
Following the citizens of Monstropolis are The Incredibles with their impressive float that’s overtaken by a large replica of Syndrome's Omnidroid. Dynamite dancers on spring-loaded stilts get the crowd clapping and keep the energy “high.”
Crush and his friends—Marlin, Nemo, Dory, Squirt and baby turtles—from Finding Nemo might come next, accompanied by choreographed puppeteers with colorful fish who look like they’re swimming under water.
After seeing life at sea, the small stars of A Bug’s Life appear on an enormous scale, with Heimlich in front. Flik, Atta, Dot and Slim are usually showcased on this float—the longest in the parade.
Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Jesse, Rex and more from the Toy Story films arrive for the finale. Be amazed by the acrobats who swing and flip upside down as the float rolls by.
Will I Get Wet?
Throughout the year, almost every float generates streams of bubbles.
During warm weather, you might get misted or sprayed with water from an android, baby turtles or maybe from a green caterpillar with a water-squirting flower.
Pick your spot and join the party along a parade route that winds through Disney California Adventure Park. The playful procession begins near the Hyperion Theater and keeps on rolling all the way to Silly Symphony Swings.
You’ll find special areas offering prime parade viewing in Hollywood Land, Pacific Wharf and Paradise Pier.
Check near Boardwalk Pizza & Pasta for last-minute viewing spots as showtime approaches.
