An all-new daytime parade is coming to Tokyo Disneyland on Apr. 15, 2023, the first new daytime parade for the park in five years. “Disney Harmony in Color” will feature themes of adventure, courage, family bonds, and friendship from Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar Animation Studios films.

Disney Harmony in Color debuts as first Tokyo Disneyland daytime parade in over five years.

The parade will open with Tinker Bell atop a rainbow-colored float adorned with beautiful petals. This float will feature Tokyo Disney Resort fan favorite character, but new ones are joining too. Vanellope and Ralph from “Wreck-It Ralph,” Wasabi, Fred, Honey Lemon and Go Go from “Big Hero 6” will all be debuting at the Tokyo Disney Resort for the first time.

Disney Harmony in Color will feature seven all-new character debuts for the Tokyo Disney Resort.

This new Tokyo Disneyland daytime parade will have a runtime of 45 minutes. It will feature 12 floats and will have one performance per day, (subject to availability and weather). The finale features a special float that will take guests on a journey to a harmonious world of vibrant colors, filled with dreams.

Walt Disney Animation Studios and Pixar will both be represented in the Disney Harmony of Color parade.

This parade will feature a large assortment of Disney and Pixar characters. Guests can expect to see Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Goofy, Pluto, Chip, Dale, Tinker Bell, Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde, Carl Fredricksen, Russell, Dug, Merida, Moana, Rapunzel, Pocahontas, Miguel, Mr. Incredible, Mrs. Incredible, Woody, Buzz Lightyear, and Hiro.

This parade will also mark the Tokyo Disney Resort first appearances of Clawhauser from “Zootopia,” Vanellope and Ralph from “Wreck-It Ralph,” as we as Wasabi, Fred, Honey Lemon, and Go Go rom “Big Hero 6.”

Disney Harmony in Color debuts April 15, 2023.

Tokyo Disney Resort has also given a sneak peek at specific themes we can expect in the parade:

  • To a World of Colorful Dreams
    Dancers in colorful costumes accompany Tinker Bell as she appears atop a float, leading the parade. Her rainbow-colored float is adorned with beautiful petals that seemingly dance in the air, as a colorful Disney world unfolds around her.
  • Trying Everything
    Judy Hopps and Nick Wilde, who is now an official police officer, from Disney Animation Studios’ “Zootopia” make an appearance. Together they set out on exciting new missions, along with their friend Clawhauser.
  • Finding Adventure
    Guests will see Russell, Dug and Carl from Pixar’s “Up” set off on a new adventure with the legendary bird Kevin and her babies.
  • Showing Strength
    Merida leads her fellow Disney Princesses, Moana, Rapunzel and Pocahontas as they heroically venture to new frontiers, with courage and determination in their hearts.
  • Family Bonds
    Guests can enjoy a vibrant tribute to family togetherness with two floats, each featuring a beloved Disney family. The first float features Miguel, from Pixar’s film “Coco”, as he celebrates a colorful Day of the Dead festival with his relatives. Next up is the super family, led by Mr. Incredible from the Pixar film “The Incredibles”. Mrs. Incredible and the whole family also make an appearance while trying to keep a giant baby Jack-Jack out of mischief!
  • With Your Best Friends
    Woody and Buzz Lightyear from Pixar’s Toy Story films appear atop RC, the remote control car. They are followed by Vanellope and Ralph from Disney Animation Studios’ “Wreck-It Ralph” in Vanellope’s candy racing car. Hiro and Baymax from Disney Animation Studios’ “Big Hero 6” make an appearance with the band of heroes — Honey Lemon, Fred, Wasabi and Go Go Tamago, all watching over the city of San Fransokyo.
  • Dreams Come Together in Harmony
    For the finale, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be sporting 40th anniversary attire, accompanied by their other Disney friends they will appear on a float adorned in a spectrum of sparkling colors.

The current daytime parade, “Dreaming Up!,” is expect to be replaced with this new offering. “Dreaming Up!” debuted Apr. 15, 2018. Before that, the “Happiness is Here” and “Jubilation” parades also lasted for five years. We can roughly expect that this new Tokyo Disneyland daytime parade will have the same lifespan. You have until Apr. 14, 2023 to see the current “Dreaming Up!” parade, and get ready for the all new “Disney Harmony in Color” on Apr. 15, 2023.
