Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary Rose Parade Float to Focus Heavily on Frozen and Star Wars


Being located just less than an hour from where the Rose Parade is held every year. Disneyland always seems to be a big show-stopper whenever they enter the Annual Tournament of Roses Parade. In honor of Disneyland’s 60th Anniversary the 2016 float will be no exception.


The theme of this year’s float is “Find Your Adventure”. The theme is hoping to inspire young people and remind fans that adventure is something they can find at Disneyland every day of the year.  The announcement was made on the Disney Parks Blog this morning.

The Disneyland Resort will celebrate 60 dazzling years with a float honoring some of the most exciting adventures that await guests at the Happiest Place on Earth. At the heart of the float is a sparkling recreation of Sleeping Beauty Castle, complete with Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse welcoming everyone to the Disneyland Resort Diamond Celebration. Flanking the castle are two adventures that are brought to life at the Disneyland Resort. The first comes from the world of “Frozen,” whose music, stories and characters delight kids of all ages at Disney California Adventure park. Representing “Frozen” is Elsa’s ice castle – straight out of Arendelle – accompanied by Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff. Then we make the jump to hyperspace and travel to a galaxy far, far away for a thrilling adventure dedicated to the Star Wars films and exciting new Star Wars experiences at Disneyland park.

The most excitiing part of the float is the focus on Star Wars. What seems to be a mini-idealized version of Star Wars Land that was announced at the D23 Expo this year. Apart from some concept art this may be our first real look at some of the promising features of Star Wars Land.
