Mickey's Storybook Express is the current daytime parade at Shanghai Disneyland and runs on the longest parade route ever seen at a Disney Park.
The parade will transport fantasy, romance, music, and merriment throughout several lands. Traveling along the longest parade route in a Disney park, the parade will be led by a whimsical locomotive. A line of themed “train cars” will follow, each with its own exciting musical soundtrack and colorful cast of performers. Each train car will feature the characters, story, and music of a favorite Disney film.
In June 2021, Shanghai Disneyland will be celebrating its 5th anniversary. Someone that Mickey's Storybook Express would be replaced by Part of Your World Parade . In March 2019, Steve Davison, the creator of Happily Ever After in Magic Kingdom, mentions that he is currently working on a parade for Shanghai Disneyland's 5th anniversary.
- Opening Unit: The parade starts with Mickey and Donald driving the engine resembling Casey Junior from Dumbo, with Dumbo holding a "D" flag with his trunk and Timothy Mouse perched on the roof of the driver's cab, as well as a blue bird from Pixar short For the Birds. This float looks similar to the Dumbo Unit from Disneyland Park (Paris)'s former daytime parade The Wonderful World of Disney Parade. Minnie, Goofy, Pluto, Daisy, Chip and Dale walk in front of it, and the Seven Dwarfs march behind it.
- Toy Story Unit: Based on the Disney and Pixar film that features Woody, Buzz Lightyear, Hamm, Mr. Potato Head, Rex, and Mr. Mike. Slinky Dog's front part perches on it while his back attached to the front with the spring walks behind it, similar to its unit from Disney California Adventure's daytime parade Pixar Play Parade. Jessie, Lots-o'-Huggin' Bear, and Green Army Men dance in front of it.
- Tangled Unit: Based on the 2010 animated film.
- Finding Nemo Unit: Based on the 2003 Disney and Pixar film. It features Nigel carrying Dory and Marlin with his beak. Some seagulls ride with him. This float looks similar to the Finding Nemo Unit from Tokyo Disneyland's daytime parade Happiness is Here Parade, but this Nigel looks more fully working animatronic. Behind it are a car lifting Mr. Ray holding Nemo and his friends and four dancers. Performers dressed as seagulls dance in front of it.
- Frozen Unit: Based on the 2013 Academy Award-winning hit animated film. Olaf rides in a sled pulled by Sven, Anna, and Elsa the Snow Queen appear at the balcony of the ice palace. Two people push a cart with Marshmallow (operated by another performer on two arms) behind it.
- Mulan Unit: Based on the 1998 animated film. This Chinese-themed unit features Fa Mulan (as a warrior) riding on a big version of Khan and rehearsed drummers.
- Finale Unit: The parade culminates with a caboose holding Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde in front (replaced both Timon and Rafiki, since June 9), with Marie, Pinocchio, Captain Hook, Stitch, Mr. Incredible, and Elastigirl in the back. As well as with Genie from Aladdin perched on the roof and the flowers from Alice in Wonderland on the window. Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Eeyore, and two performers dance in front of it. The caboose now has flags of Disney "D's" and characters.
