I was thinking about how many day time parades Disney Parks has and performs, but I was wondering what the overall favourite is? So in this vote every vote counts to make it fair, and please tell other Micechatters!!!
I am not including Celebrate! a Street Party because I have never heard anything good about it, so I" am including Soundsational instead!
Also, if you don't know much about a parade, just try searching it on www.youtube.com

It was a very hard choice between Once Upon A Dream in Paris and Jubilation in Tokyo, but I had to choose Jubilation. The floats, music, and characters in both parades are unlike anything ever seen before. However, the thing that really takes Jubilation above and beyond the others is the costume design. Especially toward the end of the parade, there are many costumes representing the lands of TDL (not TKDL) that are extremely high quality! Also, some of the float design is more elaborate than what we see in Paris, but that is a given...

(I've never visited Disneyland Resort, Tokyo Disney Resort, Disneyland Resort Paris, nor Hong Kong Disneyland Resort, so don't be fooled when I pretend to know what I'm talking about. [But I'm pretty good with the information, if I do say so myself. And you can hit me all you want with Walt Disney World.])
You ^^^ would have loved DL's Parade of Dreeams...
Now as for favorite parades in any of the Disney parks.. Hmmm tough one for me.
I have to say that at WDW.. the ones that I found more memorable were the Tencennila Parade (1981) and the Surprise Parade (1991), with honors to Mickey's Street Party and MickeyMania parade (both had great danceable music)

Over in CA, I think my favorite DL parade of all times was "Party Gras" (1990). And the original parade from DCA "Eureka" parade was also nice.

In HKDL,,, Waterworks Parade and their Halloween "Glow in the Dark" parades are tops.

In DLP... hands down, "Imaginations Parade" was the best ever put on in Paris.

Now, saving the best for last... My favorite Disney parade of ALL TIMES is...
TDL's 15th anniversary Disney Carnivale parade. They simply do not get any bigger and more lavish than that. IMHO.. that has been the best parade every created for a Disney park. And I could go on here.. since TDR has a long history of great parades for the past 27 years, and many of those were special event (limited time engagement pardes). No other Disney park tops Tokyo Disney resort on this aspect of the park experience.
How can you include a parade (Soundsational) that hasn't even debuted? All we've seen is concept art. Also, just because you haven't heard anything good about C!ASP does not mean that other MiceChatters don't enjoy it and may like to cast a vote for it. Not that I'm a fan myself... but I'm just sayin'.
Mickeys Jammin' Jungle Parade at Animal Kingdom. Great music, great "floats" and just plain fun.
Fun, but sadly a cheap minimal parade that has overstated it's welcomed. Likewise at the MK... how many more years will we be seeing the same parade (re-dressed) at the MK? another decade? How pathetic, especially when TDL is giving us 3 different and totally new event parades in addition to the regular daily ones, this year alone!!!!!!
