VINTAGE MAGIC KINGDOM PARADES
To celebrate the announcement of a the new Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade coming to Magic Kingdom Park in 2014, here is a few of parades to remember through the years.
1. America on Parade ran from June 1975 until September 1976 and celebrated the Nation’s bicentennial with a lot of red, white and blue. Below, Mickey, Goofy and Donald get in on the patriotic fun.
2. In October 1986, 15 Years of Magic started to roll down Main Street, U.S.A., celebrating the 15th anniversary of Walt Disney World Resort. Here we see Mickey and Minnie in their ’80s best joining in on the fun!
3. In the summer of 1994, the Mickey Mania parade hit the streets celebrating the one and only Mickey Mouse. Check out the life-size Mickey gloves and ear hat.
4.The Walt Disney World Resort’s 25th Anniversary parade, Remember the Magic. Ready to grant three wishes, The Genie travels down Main Street, U.S.A., along with Aladdin and Jasmine. I even have the music of that parade in my files somewhere. Im going to try find it, and then post if, if anyone’s interested and remembers that incredible parade!

I love BELLE’s OUTFITS! In fact, so much that I figured it deserved its own appreciation post. I realized that her fahion style is simple, yet elegant. Bright colours, capes and bows will always be a flirty and feminine, yet simple and comfortable touch.
Congratulations to everyone who participated in the daily contest and to the winners! It was, as some of you guessed, the front door from Vikings, at the Norway Pavilion, in EPCOT.
You guys are quite the Disney fans! Congrats and everybody go check out their blogs.
