Disney Character Hit Parade

 

Disney Character Hit Parade


Disney Character Hit Parade

 This parade ran in the early 1990's.  Over 100 performers depicted 14 moments from Disney films.  After the Main Street vehicle carrying the grand marshall family of the day came the Walt Disney World marching band performing an instrumental version of the parade theme.  
 The first float had Roger Rabbit and characters such as Chip and Dale on the riverboat S.S. Mickey Mouse.  A Jungle Book float featured King Louie's monkeys and had Baloo and Mowgli wrestling with each other.  Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood were represented with a float featuring the Silly Old Bear's tree home and Tigger sang his theme The Wonderful Thing About Tiggers.
 Teapots rolled down the street and characters from Wonderland sat in a gazebo and sang The Unbirthday Song.  The Country Bears rode on a float with Davy Crockett and sang about him while the King of the Wild Frontier shot blanks from his rifle Old Betsy at the top of the float.  The soft-hearted bears had "live" coonskin caps on their heads.  
 Captain Hook and Mr. Smee had a small boat with which they tried to escape from the Tick Tock crocodile. Snow White and the prince rode on a waterwheel float while Whisle While You Work was sung and the dwarfs marched to Heigh-Ho.  Cinderella rode in her coach pulled by six white horses.  A Mary Poppins float depicted the rooftops of London.  
 Stromboli drove his puppet wagon while Pinocchio performed with can-can dancers representing  marionettes while Hi-Diddle-Dee-Dee (An Actor's Life For Me) was sung.  The penultimate float featured a tornado slide and skateboarders.  Mickey and Minnie rode on the last float as The Mickey Mouse Club March played.  This float also featured characters such as the Gummi Bears, The Three Little Pigs, The Big Bad Wolf, Bongo, The Rescuers, Robin Hood, and others.

The song that tied the whole parade together was a special version of Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.

Zip!  Zip!  Zip!  
Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah.
