Magic on Parade will always hold a truly special place in my heart. Finding a spot, waiting there for around 45 minutes, every minute the excitement and the buzz building. Then the countdowns from 15 minutes every 5 minutes until it starts in your section of the parade route and finally when the music, Magic Everywhere blasts over the speakers. You can't help but tap your feet to the tune. You can't help but be taken away by the magic. The approximately 10 minutes it takes for the parade to pass such a joy filled with character interactions and fun.
|A few Magic Moments.|
Holding plush toys of specific characters can give great interactions, on that rainy October day I had my plush toy of Piglet and when Piglet himself spotted the plush he ran over and cuddled us and the plush! Getting waves, kisses and whatever else from characters is always fun, and when Mary Poppins blew me a kiss I was floating for ages after!

Getting unusual characters on the parade was always such a buzz. In July 2016 on a boiling hot summers day on the princess carriages we had Belle and Adam which was a real treat and then in October we had the extra princess and princes walking along the parade route.
All of us who have seen Magic on Parade pretty much know the words to the song backwards! But it really is such a catchy and special song. For those who never saw it, it basically plays on loop for the whole parade. You're left singing it long after the parade has passed by!
As much as having a change is good I shall really miss Magic on Parade. It was always the highlight of the day on any trip, whether it was in sun, rain or just the bitter cold. Magic on Parade will always live on in my heart. So thanks for the memories and let's remember that magic lives on inside us all.
