Meet the Disney Dream Team.
Mounted on majestic Clydesdale horses and holding Canadian flags hauled all the way from Langley, The Canadian Clyde Ride Team will be the first equestrian unit to take part in Disneyland’s famous Parade of Dreams.
Seven show riders and seven Clydesdales from the all-female riding team will make their way to Anaheim this winter to join Mickey Mouse and Tinker Bell in the Main Street parade starting Dec. 15.
“We’re going to Disneyland,” said an excited Wendee Cristante, founder of Canadian Clyde Ride. “The Parade of Dreams has never had an equestrian unit on the pavement. We are the first and we are Canadian.”
The musical ride team will participate in two parades per day, one at 3:30 p.m. and one at 7:30 p.m. Disney has booked the Dream Team until New Year’s Eve.
Because it’s Christmas time, the draft horses will wear sleigh bells. In the night parade, the horses and riders will sparkle with dozens of little lights. “It will be magic, I assure you that,” she said.
