Disney Stars and Motor Cars' Parade

Disney-MGM Studios stars join together to create a celebrity cavalcade featuring custom cars designed and fabricated to tell a unique story honoring Walt Disney's moviemaking career. Celebrities from television and the silver screen take over the streets of the Disney-MGM Studios during this interactive parade.

The parade steps off at the Star Tours gate, travels down Hollywood Boulevard and exits near the front of the park at Crossroads.  Parade length is approximately 25 minutes and is performed daily.  

  • Monsters, Inc. - Check out Sulley and his scare assistant Mike from the recently released blockbuster hit movie. These supersize colorful characters are larger than life.
  • Toy Story - This playful car features Buzz Lightyear and Woody atop Andy's bed. Other favorite characters include Bo Peep, Jessie, Mr. Potato HeadÆ and the Green Army Men.
  • Mary Poppins - It's a carousel of fun as Mary Poppins and Bert along with the Dancing Penguins stroll down the street alongside a colorful car with old-fashioned carousel horses dancing atop the vehicle.
  • The Muppets - Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and Sweetums travel in style inside a "floating" car. A giant balloon balances over this unit as the Muppets travel to Hollywood.
  • Star Wars - Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia "fly" through the parade aboard their space travel machine. Nearby guests can discover Darth Vadar and R2D2.
  • Mulan - You won't miss Mulan and friends inside this colorful vehicle. A giant Chinese umbrella dangles over this unit. Mushu and the Chinese Warriors walk side-by-side escorting the courageous victor down Hollywood Boulevard.
  • Aladdin - A striking unit featuring Aladdin and Jasmine sitting right "on top" of the Genie. Guests also interact with the Harem Girls as they boogie down the parade route.
  • Hercules - This animated feature film comes to life on the streets as Hercules rides in his car splashed with thunderbolts. Phil, Pain and Panic join in the fun.
  • Evil Villains - The characters you love to hate are all riding together on this 'wicked' float. From Hades to Cruella De Vil to Jafar, the Wicked Queen and Frollo, these scoundrels keep each other company atop a stretch limo -- painted black, of course.
  • Atlantis - Milo Thatch and Kida are pulled from the animator's page and placed inside a life-size Atlantian vehicle.
  • Mermaid  - Celebrate the sea with Ariel and Sebastian. From seashells to seahorses, favorite under-the-sea attendants "swim" through the streets of the Disney-MGM studios.
  • Playhouse Disney - "Playhouse Disney" friends including Bear, Stanley, Treelo, and P and J Otter gather for fun inside a big blue house.
  • Snow White & Dopey - A tribute to Walt Disney's first Oscar.
  • Grand Marshal - Gives our guest riders the opportunity to "feel like a star."
  • Finale - This unit celebrates the glamour of tinseltown with Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Goofy, Donald and Pluto. Old favorites wrap up the parade with style as the characters sit inside a 1929 Cadillac decked out with film strips in classic Disney style. Other characters interacting with guests include Alice, White Rabbit, Pinocchio and Geppetto.
