Hopefully you’ve had a chance to check out the “incredible” new float in “Paint the Night” parade at Disney California Adventure park. The Parr family and their pal Frozone appear in this electrifying parade, bringing all of the fun and excitement of “The Incredibles” to life with high-tech, pop-art effects.

While this innovative float was being built, we had a chance to document it along the way. The video below shows the progression of the float over several months, along with some super fun facts.

Here are a few more incredibly impressive fun facts:

  • The “art wall” around the rear base of the float uses 134 fixtures, all exactly nine inches apart to create the “sine wave” curve effect.
  • 123 individual LED Panels make up the 13 buildings; only 2 of these are exactly the same size and shape.
  • The penthouse floor of of one of the buildings has 112 individual windows, each with its own miniature LED light source.
  • Nearly 200 individually programmable lights are embedded in the buildings, The Underminer’s drill and Frozone’s ice trail.


  • Amazing!!!!
