    The Magic of Christmas at Disneyland

    I just got my hands on a copy of an old Disneyland Christmas special, called "The Magic of Christmas at Disneyland". Here are a few screen-shots of the movie (and I apologize for the shots which have my iTunes player controls in them):


    The start of the old Christmas parade, The Very Merry Christmas Parade.


    Aurora & Prince Philip on what looks to be Walt Disney World's famous Castle float.


    Snow White's float.


    Part of the Alice in Wonderland section.


    Beauty & the Beast float.


    Half way through the parade, Roger Rabbit tries to "wake up" the Toy Soldiers.




    Toy Factory section.


    This is the same Toy Factory float that was used in A Christmas Fantasy up until this year.


    A practically forgotten character from Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers.


    The snowflake girls in a slightly different design.


    I'm not sure which version I prefer.


    Mickey & Minnie still skate on this float to this day.


    The parade of course ends with Santa Clause.


    These lovely ladies still end the parade.


    Belle & Beast in New Orleans Square I believe.


    Now this made me sad!


    "We're making tracks in the snow!"


    Mickey's Nutcracker at the Fantasyland Theater back when it showed actual shows!




    Not very Disney, but a great costume!










    The grand finale to Mickey's Nutcracker.


    The show ends with Mickey & the gang singing "We Wish You A Merry Christmas" outside of Sleeping Beauty Castle.

    Hope you enjoyed this look at The Magic of Christmas at Disneyland!

    What year was this??!! Was Disney still using the Jungle book floats? I also remember as a kid marveling at the dancers in wooden shoes accompanying the Pinocchio unit, are they in the movie?.

    Yes, they both were.

    AWW MAN! I only have a handful of memories of going to Disneyland as a kid. The Jungle book float and Pinocchio are two of the strongest memories. Thanks for the pictures!

    I did a search and found this was a VHS release made by Disney to be sold in the park only and it was made in 1992 (which cracks me up when it is called "old" because 1992 seems like just yesterday to me ).

    That show was so fun to watch as a kid. I would watch it on the Disney Channel when ever they played it. Something about it was just so cool. I'm sure now it would seem ultra cheesy and over the top lame.

    That looks awesome! I'm not sure if I ever saw that as a child... but I never realized the similarities to what they have now
