Confirmed: Mrs. Claus Frozen Out of Disneyland “A Christmas Fantasy Parade”
Earlier this week we reported that Mickey and Minnie had their float taken over by Anna and Elsa from the new hit movie Frozen. I was just sent new information regarding the Christmas parade from a reliable source who confirmed our worst fears–Mrs. Claus will not be appearing in the Disneyland Christmas parade this year.
All three Disneyland Christmas Parade photos come from Flickr user Jeremy Wong.
Previously we reported that Mickey and Minnie were moving to the Mrs. Claus float replacing Donald Duck and Daisy Duck. But, I am quite sad to tell you that this isn’t the case. Now her spot at the back of the float will be taken by Donald Duck and Daisy Duck who will now be in charge of sorting the letters to Santa. The the area previously occupied by Donald and Daisy in the front of the float will now be home to Mickey and Minnie Mouse.
In our last article I told you about the incredible crowd interaction that Mrs. Claus provides. Now that is lost. Perhaps there will be audio recorded from Mickey and Minnie or Donald and Daisy, but the crowd interaction previously provided just won’t be the same.
Santa and Mrs. Claus are some of the only people to ever be live mic’d in a Disneyland parade. That will be missing this year.
Mrs. Claus is just as important to the parade as the famous toy soldiers, opening ballerina, reindeer, or even Santa Claus himself.
Since my first Disneyland Christmas visit, I have been enamored by the “A Christmas Fantasy Parade.” Not a week goes by where I don’t somehow have the song get in my head from humming the opening: duh-dananaaaaaa—–duhunmuu-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duh-duuuuuuh-there’s a special magic when Christmas time is here…and now the song is stuck in your head too. Watch the video of the parade on Youtube and enjoy the performance from Mrs. Claus to remedy that problem.
