Thanksgiving is right around the corner and coming sooner than you think! Besides the tasty seasonal meals this holiday brings, another highlight of Thanksgiving is Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade.
This is the 96th year of this massive event, which features exciting entertainment like floats, giant balloons, and marching bands.
Disney has been involved with this parade for the past several years, with notable floats featuring characters from hit movie franchises such as Frozen and Star Wars.
Additionally, the Disney Cruise Line has recently been involved with this parade, and we’re excited to see it return for this year’s events!
This week, Disney Cruise Line announced its return to this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade. In 2021, the cruise line unveiled a brand-new cruise ship float, resembling the Disney Wish.
This time, the same float will return, surrounded by a parade performance in Herald Square as it floats throughout the New York City streets.
Besides the spectacular Disney Cruise Line float, Disney fans can look forward to the parade performance, inspired by some of the entertainment onboard the Disney Wish. Here are more details about this performance, per Disney Parks Blog:
This year’s live parade performance will be inspired by one of the new Broadway-style shows on board the Disney Wish, “Disney Seas the Adventure.” Minnie Mouse, Mickey Mouse and Goofy will lead an incredible cast of performers and Disney characters in this show-stopping number, which has quickly become a guest favorite aboard our newest ship.
Disney Cruise Line also shared this recap video from last year’s performances on Twitter , which includes a behind-the-scenes look at what goes into the planning of this beautiful float.
