    What is YOUR favorite Parade float?

    So I was at DCA today watching the Pixar Play Parade and a question popped into my head...

    What is your favorite float in each parade you have seen at Disneyland or Disney's California Adventure? It doesn't matter if you have only seen pictures of the parade or video, but most people must have a favorite.

    Hercules Zero to Hero Parade: Hades Float (I love the little rollercoaster track that goes around the float)
    The Mulan Parade: Shan-Yu Float (I believe it squirted water?)
    The Lion King Parade: The Timon and Pumba float (with the monkeys etc.)
    Parade of Dreams: The Pinocchio Float
    Eureka!: The Float that looked like a sand car that had all the sports etc.
    Block Party Bash: The Bug's Life Float.
    Pixar Play Parade: Th Ratouillie Float (I just love the chefs on the stilts)
    (Main Street) Electrical Parade: Pleasure Island Float

    I'll post more later... I'm just worn out.

    Re: What is YOUR favorite Parade float?

    My absolute favorite float in ANY parade was from the Electrical Parade... the Pete's Dragon float, with Pete riding on top of a dazzling Elliot (with Pete even "talking" to Elliot) always was my favorite float in the parade, and my favorite float out of all the Disneyland parades.

    I don't really watch the parades but looking back through all of the videos and stuff, I really like the opening float of the MSEP and just how the music goes with it (very annoying, yet still addicting)... Very nice...

    pinocchio's dream of laughter from walt disney's parade of dreams is definitely one of my favorite floats ever.

    and i enjoyed most of the floats in
    tokyo disneyland's dreams on parade/dreams on parade moving on...
    especially this one...

    also all the floats in the new jubilation parade were nice...
    especially this one...hahahaha...



    it's a small section of the "bubbles" unit from the parade...hahaha.

    and finally the it's a small world units from tokyo disneyland's electrical parade dreamlights...

    but all three of these parade have super amazing floats in general that are as just as fantastic...you can surely look them up on youtube/etc.

    finally,
    the mickey & minnie float from the main street electrical parade.
    the monster inc./bugs life & finding nemo floats in pixar play.
    the mickey mouse float from mickey's waterworks parade in hong kong disneyland.
    the opening/pinocchio & alice in wonderland/pete pan & mary poppins & villain floats from disneyland paris' once upon a dream parade...

    and i think i'll just stop here...before i get even more carried away...hahaha.
    so much for saying one favorite.
    it's to hard for me to choose one without choosing an entire parade...hahaha.
    you can tell i really like parades...hahaha...sorry.
    i've got no strings.

    Re: What is YOUR favorite Parade float?

    Since the Parade of Dreams is the only parade in which I remember the floats pretty well then I'd have to say the Alice in Wonderland float with the trampoline and the princess floats and the Mickey/Minnie float. Actually in the old Aladdin parade I liked the spitting camels.

    Re: What is YOUR favorite Parade float?

    thanks for sharing those awesome pics!

    here are my favs from parades that i remember seeing:
    elecrtical: cinderella float (because of the silly/evil sisters fighting over the prince)
    pod: tie with alice and ariel. alice is so much fun to watch, esp. during the show stops, but the little mermaid float has great detail, and vibrant colors.
    pixar play: though i thought the nemo float with the giant turtles was incredible, i really appreciated the design of the bugs life float.

    Re: What is YOUR favorite Parade float?

    I've really only seen Parade of Dreams. The Alice in Wonderland float is my favorite, without a doubt. Its so colorful, and slightly chaotic with all the teacups. And a trampoline designed as a table? GENIUS!

    i totally agree...
    that float was my favorite from that parade...
    but it's a shame that it had to be cut down after the recent accident.

    Re: What is YOUR favorite Parade float?

    For me it's from POD. I have 3 favorites. Belle and Beast's float,Alice & Ariel's.

    Belle Beast=I like how it looks like the seen from the dinning room and the colors.
    Alice=Like most of here have said the trampoline.
    Ariel=I love it when the show stop happens and her float goes up with Walt's spech. I know Lion King's and Pioncchio's does the same but I just like Ariel's better.

    I love the Alice float in POD!

    I just love (more) how Gepetto is "puppeting" the puppets on the Pinocchio float
