Parade Overview[]

  • Share a Dream Come True

This is the first unit in the parade. A young Walt Disney sits at an easel sketching his beloved Mickey Mouse.

Hello everyone and welcome. This is Julie Andrews and I'd like to tell you a story. In 1901 a little boy named Walt Disney was born and a dream began. The dream of imagination that today, 100 years later, has touched every one of our lives. I once had the privilege to know the dreamer, Walt Disney. His imagination inspired and built his dreams into reality for all of us to share. Today we celebrate and share the legacy of Walt Disney, filled with pixie dust, princesses, fairy tales, and fantasies practically perfect in every way. (Children's chorus sings Sharing a Dream Come True. A child enthusiastically announces.) And now Ladies and Gentlemen, boys and girls, the Magic Kingdom proudly presents the All Stars Parade.

  • It Was All Started by a Mouse

This float features Mickey Mouse inside a snow globe, with 11 sculpted figures of Mickey from films throughout the years including Steamboat Willie, Brave Little Tailor, Plane Crazy, Mickey and the Beanstalk, Mickey's Christmas Carol and Sorcerer Mickey from Fantasia. Mickey is surrounded by some of his friends including Minnie Mouse and Goofy. Then Mickey invites Tinker Bell to sprinkle her pixie dust and gets the crowd to join in calling out "pixie dust!". The pixie dust sparkles over the float and glitters inside the snowglobe dome.

  • Wish Upon a Star

This float celebrates the early years of Walt Disney with Pinocchio inside the snow globe and other famous Disney characters surrounding him including Mister Geppetto, The Blue Fairy (Replaced by Jiminy Cricket), Figaro, Cleo from Pinocchio, Tin Soldier and Ballerina from Fantasia 2000, Bumble Bee from Melody Time, Alice, Tweedledum and Tweedledee and The Hatter from Alice In Wonderland and Snow White, Doc, Grumpy and Happy from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.

Mirror, Mirror on the wall, my dreams will conquer one and all. When you imagine, time becomes timeless, When you imagine and you believe. Fantasy dances and hopes are revealed, and the dreams that you dream become real. And now begin my evil spell a thunder bolt to mix it well. Who knows how evil dreams can be? I need your help, so scream with me.

As the audience screams the Queen transforms into the old hag. Other villains surrounding the float include Jafar from Aladdin, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, Governor Ratcliffe from Pocahontas, and Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

  • As Long as There is Imagination Left in the World

This float was designed after the Crystal Castle located in the Crystal Arts Shop on Main Street, U.S.A. It features a two-tiered snow globe and ½-inch thick, molded acrylic “crystal” turrets and towers.

  • Show Mode

During the Disneyland Montreal Grand Opening celebrations, the floats would stop at certain points along the route. Each float had a separate music score which consisted of the 'We Share a Dream Come True' theme, as well as music from each of the movies represented on the floats. A number of special effects were used, such as glitter and moving parts on the floats e.g. a rotating carousel rose up inside the Roger Rabbit float. The showstops were originally around 4 minutes long, but were soon shortened to around 2 minutes, mostly cutting out character dialogue.


All the music in the show was recorded in London by members of the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and was composed by Gavin Greenaway. It consisted of the main theme called Fantasy, as well as the Share a Dream Come True theme used for the Disneyland Montreal Grand Opening celebration.

All audio is controlled through DTMF tones transmitted by RF signals from the antennas on Ballerina's Castle to each unit. Each unit has its own audio themed to the unit, with the main parade theme played on the zone speakers.

All the music from this parade can be found on the Magic in the Streets: Parade Memories CD.
