First Look: Rehearsal Video of Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy in “Disney’s Honorary VoluntEars Cavalcade”

posted on January 8th, 2010 by Heather Hust Rivera, Senior Manager, Corporate Communications, The Walt Disney Company


If you want to be the first to see Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy in a parade at Disneyland park, check out the video above. We taped this during a rehearsal after Disneyland park closed on Wednesday night. The video gives a first glimpse of the new “Disney’s Honorary VoluntEars Cavalcade” that will debut today at both Disneyland park in California and Magic Kingdom park in Florida.

As you’ll see, the cavalcade celebrates volunteerism and features Kermit, Miss Piggy, along with special floats and vehicles festooned with bright balloons and flanked by parade dancers. They’re all excited about the new “Give a Day, Get a Disney Day” program happening in 2010 (see www.disneyparks.com for terms).

“Disney’s Honorary VoluntEars Cavalcade” precedes “Celebrate! A Street Party” at Disneyland park. You can catch the show at Disneyland park once a day, and there are a few things you should know about the current schedule:

  • If there is only one performance of “Celebrate! A Street Party” scheduled for the day, then the cavalcade will happen at that time.
  • If there are two performances of “Celebrate! A Street Party” planned for the day, then you can catch Kermit and Miss Piggy as part of the Cavalcade at the evening parade.

As always, check for show times because they’re subject to change and cancellation.

Check back on the Disney Parks Blog later as Tom Smith will be sharing photos of the parade at Magic Kingdom park and details of how Walt Disney World guests can see the cavalcade.

That’s a really neat idea to pull in those who’ve volunteered their time who received a day at the park for their service to be included in on such a unique parade to go through the park. ^^ This should be something rather interesting to see

The parade looks great, but I live in the SF Bay area, and I checked out the give-a-day opportunities near me ON Jan 1st, and most of them wanted a LOT more than a day of my time- one even wanted 12 hours of time split over SIX MONTHS……seemed like the charities were getting greedy………

why cant those of us that have an annual pass put the free ticket price towards our new pass….I’m going to help either way but it sure would be nice to get a break on my pass by doing this.

Clint,

From the FAQs:

May I upgrade my free one day ticket to an Annual Pass or multi-day ticket?

Yes, you may upgrade the free ticket to another ticket type of greater value within the applicable upgrade window. However, you are responsible for the incremental cost and the new ticket may only be used by you. No changes or refunds will be given. The value of the free ticket may not be used to combine or upgrade with a separate single or multi-day ticket.
