Wordless Wednesday Blog Hop - It's a Parade!

It's Wordless Wednesday at the Blog hop! Who doesn't  love a Disney Parade? We pulled together some of our favorites to join in the fun of this parade of Wordless Wednesday Photos just for you! Special thanks goes out to Deb from Focused on the Magic for hosting this weekly series.



Gayle: Is there anyone, anywhere that doesn't love the Disney Main Street Electrical Parade? I defy anyone not to clap and giggle with delight when they hear the iconic music! Whether you saw if opening night in Disneyland Resort in 1972, or when they brought it back to Disney California Adventure in 2001, or were lucky enough to catch it one more time at the Magic Kingdom, it's a must see for the Turners!







Tricia: I decided to show a change of pace here (nudge, nudge...get it?) Here's a Parade of Runners at the 2010 Disney Princess 1/2 Marathon. That's me in color :)





Judy: We were lucky enough to be in Disneyland Paris during their Halloween Festival, we have never seen so many pumpkins, I am sure that the pumpkins were copied over from there to Walt Disney World. I love Stitch so I had to share this one photo from their Halloween Parade.










They also had pumpkins everywhere, here are a couple of photos of the pumpkins from Disneyland Paris

Kelly: Parades can take many forms, especially when you're on a Disney Cruise. One boisterous parade takes place during dinner in Animator's Palate. Not only does the room change color, so do your servers!
Lori: The parade in Hong Kong Disneyland was awesome. Sammy took this shot of one of the dancers from the Toy Story theme. Their jet packs blew bubbles as they made their way down the parade route.

When Donald Duck turned 50, Walt Disney World threw a parade in his honor- complete with live ducks! It really quacked me up watching them being loaded on this float.






Laura: I love the variety of parades Disney has throughout the year. One of my favorites is the Once Upon A Christmastime Parade at Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party! I love Christmas at Disney!


Kim: Like Gayle, I'm smitten with the Main Street Electrical Parade and have been since I first saw it!  It's about the only parade I will actually stake out a "front row seat" for... so I took it one step further.  Home with me!  I discovered that one can purchase mini versions of the parade that light up and change colors.  I only have the first piece so far but hope to add to it soon.
