Description And Comments

Staged once a day, the parade begins near the park's entrance, continues down Hollywood Boulevard, and circles in front of the giant hat. From there, it passes in front of Sounds Dangerous and ends by Star Tours. An alternate route begins at the far end of Sunset Boulevard and turns right, onto Hollywood Boulevard.

The Studios' latest parade, Pixar Pals Countdown to Fun!, features floats and characters based on Disney's animated features, including Toy Story Monsters, Inc., A Bug's Life, and Up. It's a colorful, high-energy affair with plenty of acrobatics, singing, and dancing. It's also loud beyond belief. Unofficial Guide coauthor Len Testa, who considers most Disney afternoon parades to be cliche-ridden mobile musicals affording a high chance of heat stroke, grudgingly concedes that this may be the best of the lot.

Touring Tips

If you're anywhere on the parade route when the parade begins, your best bet is to stay put and enjoy it. Our favorite vantage point is the steps of the theater next to Sounds Dangerous.
