Share a Dream Come True Parade

Each snow globe has its own name and tells a special story featuring some of your favorite Disney characters. The floats also make periodic stops along the parade route to interact with guests.

“It Was All Started By a Mouse”
This snow globe features the star of the show, Mickey Mouse himself, accompanied by eleven sculpted figures representing the evolution of Mickey throughout the years. You’ll see Mickey as he appeared in such films as Steamboat Willie, The Brave Little Tailor, Plane Crazy, Mickey and the Beanstalk, and Mickey’s Christmas Carol. And of course you’ll see Mickey in his most famous role; that of the Sorcerer’s Apprentice in Fantasia. Mickey is joined on the float by many of his friends including Minnie Mouse and Goofy.
Stops: The Liberty Bell in Liberty Square, the front of Cinderella Castle, Casey's Corner, the Emporium, and the Fire Station

“Wish Upon a Star”
This float celebrates the early films of Walt Disney. Pinocchio is the featured character in this nostalgic snow globe, and he is joined by the other characters from the classic film including Gepetto, the Blue Fairy, Figaro, Cleo and Jiminy Cricket. Snow White also makes an appearance, and she is joined Doc, Grumpy and Happy.
Stops: The Liberty Bell in Liberty Square, the Liberty Square Bridge, the top of Main Street, halfway down Main Street, and the Main Street Train Station

“A Thousand Dreams to See”

Stops: The Diamond Horseshoe Saloon in Frontierland, Ye Olde Christmas Shoppe in Liberty Square, the central hub near Tomorrowland, the Athletic Store (name?) on Main Street, and the Town Square Exposition Hall

“Face the Darkest Fears”
Evil lurks on this sinister float which features a who’s who of Disney villains. The Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs presides over the mayhem. She is joined by the Chernabog (from the Night on Bald Mountain sequence in Fantasia), Jafar from Aladdin, Malificent from Sleeping Beauty, Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians and Ursula from The Little Mermaid.

They are joined by the Fairy Godmother from Cinderella and Flounder and Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.
Stops: Pecos Bill's in Frontierland, the Liberty Square Bridge, the top of Main Street, and halfway down Main Street

“As Long as There is Imagination Left in the World”
This magnificent float was inspired by the Crystal Castle located in the Crystal Arts Shop on Main Street. The two-tiered snow globe is surrounded by a variety of stunning crystal-like turrets and towers. You’ll see the Cheshire Cat from Alice in Wonderland, Simba, Zazu and Timon from The Lion King, and Thumper and Flower from Bambi. They’re joined by Baloo, Brer Bear, Brer Fox, Esmerelda from The Hunchback of Notre Dame, and the mischievous Chip 'n' Dale.

Little Known Facts

Each of the snow globes featured in the Share a Dream Come True parade is eight feet in diameter and constructed of 400 pounds of acrylic material (the same kind used for the windshields of jet fighters!). A company called Custom Plastics in British Columbia created each one of the globes by heating the material in a forced-air oven. Each snow globe was secured in a large ring and blown up like an enormous soap bubble.

Some of the floats feature their own special effects in addition to the strobe lights, fog and snow common to all the globes. For example, the Evil Queen from Snow White transforms into the Old Witchs right before your eyes, and Aladdin’s magic carpet actually flies around inside its globe. Additionally, if you have a Magical Moments pin, it will interact with the parade at special moments.

The parade music was recorded by members of the London Symphony Orchestra and the Royal Philharmonic.

The parade features an ensemble of 110 Cast Members. In addition to the performers, this number includes the float drivers and coordinators.
