Mickey's Costume Party Cavalcade
One of feature of Mickey's Halloween Party is the Cavalcade that runs up and down Main Street twice a night. A feature exclusive to the Halloween Party, it's a fun parade, although a better description might be parade light. The title of "Cavalcade" really is accurate, because it's more of a procession of characters on a few moving vehicles than the traditional Disneyland elaborate parade most guests are used to. For sure, it doesn't hold a candle to Walt Disney's World's Boo To You parade (if they brought that over to California, I would gladly pony up the cash for Mickey's Halloween Party more often). But it's still a festive and spirited passing of characters and dancers, and that's certainly not a bad thing!
|A vampire Mickey opens up the procession.
|The float unveils a logo for the event!
|The basic premise is that all the characters have been dressed in costume, and they've come out to celebrate.
|There are dancers who come along first.
|The floats are more dressed up moving platform than the normal elaborately spectacular parade transports.
|These moving pumpkins were cute. There were a few of them, as you'll later see.
|Costumed characters also formed part of the parade. Smee seemed to really be enjoying himself!
|A Minnie pumpkin.
|A Toy Story dancer says, "Howdy!"
|A more monstrous pumpkin...
|...all in advance of the Monsters Inc. segment of the parade.
|Then comes a hodgepodge of animal characters--Clarabelle the Cow, King Louie, and some of the Country Bears.
|What's Halloween without something sweet?
|It is trick or treat, after all!
|Stilt walkers also make their way up Main Street.
|Finally, the main Disney characters come by, each in their own costumes.
|Mickey is dapper as always!
|That Mouse always has a smile!
|Pluto seems to be a clown. Or a clowndog?
|Goofy as superhero... a silly one!
|And I love Donald as a Stormtrooper rounds out the cast!
