One of the best parts of any Disneyland Resort trip is seeing live entertainment, including one of our dazzling and high-energy parades. What does it take to create that type of magical experience? Scott Schaffer is one of the creative minds behind some of our most popular shows and entertainment, including “Magic Happens,” debuting ‪February 28 at Disneyland park.  

As Senior Art Director, Scott helps create stunning stage shows and parades for not only Disneyland Resort but also international parks such as Tokyo Disney Resort and Disneyland Paris.

Take a look and see just how this “Magic Happens”!


  • If it’s possible, please pass on to Scott that the Paint the Night Parade is my all-time favorite parade. It was dazzling, exciting, and so much fun, and the setting of my most fun Disneyland memory: dancing along to the music on a warm summer night with my sisters and friends. (Please bring it back!)
