Toon Circus Parade Premier!

And to complete the theme, Maps and Guides are all Toon adorned.

Altogether a real effort has been made to make this a major event to boost attendance and give the summer visitors something new.

For the special Premier performance we were also treated to music from two Disneyland Paris bands, all decked out in new costumes.

"So what's the parade and show like?" You may say. Well, read on...

The events take place between three and five times a day during the summer. It starts at either Fantasyland or Main Street (depending on where it previously ended) and they follow the usual parade route.

If the show starts in Fantasyland the floats make their way through Fantasyland and around the hub towards Main Street (please note they do not stop on the way).

It is only when they reach Main Street that the parade stops and the show begins.

There are three main sections to the show each centered on a big 'performance' float.

The first is the Casey Jr. Train, a float from a previous Disneyland Paris parade but it has been heavily reworked for it's new role. Sitting on top of the engine drivers cab is Dumbo who turns to greet the guests.

This part of the parade also contains the first stage, which is utilized by Roger Rabbit and his friends. Here they have great fun with Clowns and a fire that they just can't seem to find or put out!
