Today I went to Disneyland to get a glimpse of a commercial shoot for the new Mickey's Soundsational Parade debuting on May 27,2011
Only two floats on this day were being shot for the commercial. The first one was the beginning float and the second one was a Princess and the Frog showboat float.
YouTube Video is at the bottom of the page
"Come see the complete parade in all it's glory..."?!?!?! It should state "...in all its glory.."
Hello! Disney! Get with the program, please.
A section of the hub was sectioned off for the commercial shoot
While sitting down, it totally came without any warning. There was no music or anything as the floats made their way to their spots.
The main float
Checking out some of the details
Not to far behind was Tiana's showboat float.
Hmm.. I wonder who will be in the row boat. With an umbrella there, I am guessing it will be Tiana herself
Chip and Dale !
Some "actors" were placed inside as Guests. These "Guests" got the job of being parents. They don't look too thrilled.
On the left side were some more "actors". They were dressed up with some Disney hats
The drummers that will be in front of the first float
This reminds me of Tokyo Disneyland's "Power of Music" back in January 2010
Practice your routine please
Mickey and Minnie finally come out to get in place
Minnie's dress reminds me of Tokyo Disneyland's D-Pop Magic
Mickey carefully stepping into his spot
As the drummers practice, Minnie dances
While Mickey plays the drums, Jiminy Cricket makes a cameo appearance!
Wow! Mickey can really jam!
The floats with their music proceeded to Coke Corner. Once there, they were driven in reverse back to their starting point. After some time, they did the same thing all over again. The time I was there, they had done it three times.
The following pictures are from those runs
I think I prefer "Drummer Mickey" over "Gangsta Mickey"
Ooo, got an itch
Oh no! Donald is stuck inside an instrument
Side shot of Tiana's float
It's all made up of musical instruments.
How clever is that!
Professor Owl and the chorus bird girls from the 1953 animated short "Toot, Whistle, Pluck, and Boom" make a cameo appearance as well
The "actors" all together for a crowd shot. They were to be all dancing and moving with the music, all the while following the clump of Mickey balloons, as though that was the actual float
Another shot of Tiana's float before heading out
Thanks for stopping by and checking it out
Until next time...
