    ANAHEIM, Calif. – Mickey Mouse will lead a bevy of Disney characters on a musical journey that has a whole new beat this summer. “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade” debuts May 27 at Disneyland park, expressing the timeless tales of Disney music in a variety of rhythms and styles.

    • Nine themed floats carry the characters down Main Street, U.S.A.
    • Characters and performers become part of the parade units in “Mickey’s Soundsational Parade.”
    • Goofy lends his musical “expertise,” performing on an oversized drum.
    • The cymbal dancers in the Aladdin sequence create rhythm using hand cymbals.
    • The Three Cabarellos sequence features Piñata dancers in folkloric-style costumes, and flower dancers costumed to look like traditional Mexican paper flowers.
    • The Jungle Book unit features King Louie (The Jungle Book) and Terk (Tarzan) dancing with four monkey companions.
    • “The Princess and the Frog” unit includes New Orleans-inspired jazz, and Tiana’s riverboat is made of musical instruments including a clarinet smokestack and tambourine paddle wheel.
    • Tinker Bell plays the mushrooms of Pixie Hollow, part of the Never Land unit, using her wand as a drumstick.
    • The grand finale Mary Poppins drum unit is pulled, in part, by a giant huntsman (from the movie’s Jolly Holiday sequence) pedaling a large bicycle.
    • The Mary Poppins drum unit also features a moving carousel complete with kites
      flying overhead, penguins riding carrousel horses, and piano keys that appear to “play.”
    • Eleven Mary Poppins chimney sweeps perform a dance to the song “Step In Time,” using their brooms as percussive.
