Creating the ‘Frozen’ Float for ‘Paint the Night’ Parade at Disneyland Park

In “Paint the Night,” the innovative new nighttime parade coming May 22 as part of the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration, Mickey Mouse uses his vivid imagination to harness the power of Tinker Bell’s pixie dust and bring to light beloved characters and stories from “Monsters, Inc.,” “Cars,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Beauty and the Beast,” “Toy Story” and more.

From the world of “Frozen” comes the tallest float in the entire parade, inspired by Elsa’s shimmering palace of ice. Anna and Elsa will grace the float, accompanied by Olaf and a group of dancing frozen fractals, as they glide through Disneyland park. In this video, our team members take you behind the scenes for a look at the “Frozen” float under construction.

  • When I saw the version in Hong Kong it was amazing, can’t wait to see it with the extra floats added.

  • This parade looks fabulous. Seen video of Hong Kong parade and it is truly spectacular. Is this parade going to be coming to Walt Disney World anytime soon? Looks like a great enhancement on the Main Street Electrical Parade at MK! 🙂

  • I am really looking forward to this parade.

  • I’m excited for all of it! The Electric Light Parade has always been my favorite, so I’m so excited to hear that song played throughout this parade!

  • Looking forward to seeing the parade this week!
