Sundays on Parade

Welcome to #SundaysOnParade!

If you’ve been with us since the beginning, welcome back and if this is your first Parade Trip with us then I hope you have a blast and join us again next week. 😀 If you have memories from seeing any of these parades in person, please feel free to share the memories with us. And as always, if you know someone who would enjoy these posts because they love parades, Disney, time travel or history please share with them.

Last week we traveled to Disneyland to see the Totally Minnie Parade. This week we’re celebrating, all be it a couple weeks late, America! From 1987 to 1988, Fourth of July in 1989 and as a pre-parade in 1991, Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom presented for its many guests the Spirit of America parade.

The parade procession featured Mickey and Minnie in colonial attire riding atop an oversized Constitution float, surrounded by a marching band. There were also a float for country bears with a country band, floats based on “American” sights, including a lighthouse, steamboat and a barn, among others. Disney characters also appeared in attire themed to their floats, such as Goofy dressed in cowboy gear.
