The new daytime spectacular “Magic Happens” will soon make its way down Main Street, U.S.A. in Disneyland park. As we have shared previously, our creative team will bring Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios films to life with stunning floats, energetic music and artistic costumes. In addition, 90-plus performers will celebrate the moments of magic from these films with modern choreography.

Enjoy the video below for a peek behind the creative process! You’ll see performers rehearse the opening number, “A Swirl of Magic,” as well as see how they bring the ocean to life in the “Moana” number, “A Wave of Magic.”
