January 25, 2003 – Tokyo Disneyland’s Disney’s Dreams on Parade Begins
“Dream on, dream of the magic right here where the magic’s made…”
On January 25, 2003, Disney’s Dreams on Parade began in Tokyo Disneyland’s Magic Kingdom. The parade was created specifically for the 20th anniversary of Tokyo Disneyland, and each character in the parade represents a different dream. Flora, Fauna, and Merriweather begin on a float of Cinderella’s castle, welcoming guests. The first section is the “Dreams of the Good Old Days,” featuring Daisy Duck, the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf, and Mary Poppins and Bert. Dreams of the Frontier Spirit follows this, with Chip ’n’ Dale, Clara Cluck, Horace Horsecollar, Clarabelle Cow, Woody, and Jessie. Pluto, Brer Rabbit, Brer Bear and Brer Fox follow this with the Dreams of Friendship, continued with Dumbo, Pinocchio, Geppetto, Mickey Mouse, Alice, Mad Hatter, Peter Pan, and Wendy with the Dreams of Imagination. Goofy brings the Dreams of Laughter with Sulley and Mike from Monsters, Inc.; Buzz Lightyear comes next with the Dreams of Infinity. Dreams of Paradise continues the parade with Donald Duck, King Louie, and Baloo. The parade ends with the Dreams of Happily Ever After, with Snow White and her Prince, Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip, Belle and the Beast, Cinderella and Prince Charming, and Mickey Mouse. The parade finished its run on March 30, 2006; a CD and Blu-Ray of the parade were released for purchase.
