Every Role a Starring Role – Disneyland Resort Parade Performer

posted on August 30th, 2011 by Kevin Rafferty, Jr., Communications Specialist, Disneyland Resort

In our last installment in this series, the top-rated feedback from our Disney Parks YouTube channel suggested we feature a Disneyland Resort parade performer. Well Disney Parks Blog followers, we’re listening!

In this video you’ll meet Kelly Jean, one of more than 90 live performers who bring Mickey’s Soundsational Parade to life inside Disneyland park. The parade features nine floats, with Kelly contributing to the giant jam session as a cymbal dancer in the Aladdin unit.

I must admit I’ve never thought about how much preparation goes into this role until we began this production. I suppose it’s because every time I see this parade the characters are so believable and the performances so polished that it’s never even crossed my mind.

I hope you’ll enjoy this look into the steps before step off. Truly, Kelly is a “cymbal” of Disney magic.
