At its inauguration with Disney Classics Parade , the float featured a different design to its years. Instead of a large clamshell, a small rowing boat floated high up in the air to depict the "Kiss the Girl" scene of the film, with the undersea life therefore hiding below an invisible water line.
The boat moved side-to-side as the clamshell later did, and featured Ariel in human form with Prince Eric by her side. The modifications allowed Ariel to be seen in her more popular mermaid form. Belle stood high on a giant cake, with forks and teapots dancing around her. Beast was featured in a massively increased size, holding his rose in one hand and reaching out to Belle with the other.
Potts , Chip Potts , Fifi , Lumiere , and Cogsworth were all featured below the Beast on a beautiful base decorated with stained glass-effect designs. The float was usually preceded with dancers dressed as chefs in candy-coloured white, gold, and pink costumes. During the early years, these also pushed along stoves and other large props.

The scene depicted Prince Ali and Jasmine flying on Magic Carpet above the rooftops of Agrabah , with a slithering serpent sliding over the moon behind them, Jafar and Iago featured at the front of the float in a similar style to Ursula for The Little Mermaid.
The serpent breathed fire at select moments, and the magic carpet turned from side to side and moved up and down. Some of the domes of Agrabah's skyline even rotated! Main article: The Lion King Festival. Based on the animated film and was created for a mini-parade called The Lion King Festival that year. The float featured no live characters from the film and instead was simply a large decorative sculpt of animals, roughly based on a cross between the "Circle of Life" and "I Just Can't Wait To Be King" scenes.
Amongst the animals was Timon holding a bug right at the front , Pumbaa at the centre and Rafiki holding a baby Simba at the top of the pile. The float was brought to life with dancers dressed as animals such as giraffes, zebra and gazelle. Main article: Hercules Happening.
As with the Aladdin and The Lion King floats, the unit was also originally created for a mini-parade celebrating the release of the film titled the Hercules Happening. It's construction just one year before the launch of the new parade and very self-contained design perhaps shows signs that it was produced with the new parade in mind, being the most recent of the Disney Classics to be featured in the timeline.
In the Hercules Happening , it was joined by a Greek temple and staircase float, gospel singers, dancers, and more. As Hercules was the most recent Disney canon film to be released at the time, it was used to end the parade. Summary Hercules goes to the Jr. Categories :. Stream the best stories. They were often presented during Christmas, but were often also combined with other special parades during other times of the year. These other parades will be noted below.

The parade often featured other Disney stars, and a segment featuring Disney Characters. It included the large props used in the live action Disney musical Babes in Toyland. The parade preceded the film by one year. The Parade of Many Lands was combined with this parade for an extended version during a few of the performances, closer to Christmas, as a special event variation.
It also included a Christmas segment with silly reindeer, dancing Christmas trees and Santa Claus. The Christmas sections were omitted, and extra Disney themed sections were added in their place. This parade also was the first appearance of the famous Big Bass Drum, which became of parade tradition for years to follow.
This parade was also combined with other holiday events, such as Easter, and the Forth of July. It was a more elaborate evolution of the Parade of Toys, but did not include the Parade of Many Lands.
