  • [Question] How old is A Christmas Fantasy Parade?

    A Christmas Fantasy parade is my favorite Disneyland parade but I was wondering, how old is it? I know that they had the Christmas parade even in the 60s, but I was wondering, how old is the version that uses the current music? Can anyone shed some light on this?

    The current A Christmas Fantasy parade debuted Christmas 1994.

      I was just watching some home video of my family in 2000 when my kids were much smaller watching the Christmas Fantasy Parade. It made me very verklempt. :gladsad:


      Almost the EXACT same parade, minus Geenie, some characters from Hercules, etc. I think the parade has been working very well all of these years. I hope it's around for a long time.

          A Christmas Parade is about 14 years old.
          I really like the Goofy and Max float.

                  If you look at them, the book floats are the same, Opening unit is the same, just minus extra books + Christmas stuff, the jungle one is now goofy and max's float, and i think the Egyptian one is the princess ball float. Im not sure of that one though.

                      Wrong, where did you get your information?

                      I was at Disneyland during the 1994 Christmas Season, and the Very Merry Christmas Parade was running that year. Peter Pan, Wendy, John, Michael and the Lost Boys were in the parade, along with the older music.

                      I looked at several sights on line, and also several of the Disneyland Brochures, and couldn't find one for Christmas 1995 or 96, and I don't recall if The Christmas Fantasy Parade began in 1995 or 1996 or 1997, and could not find a copy of "Disneyland Today" from the 1995 Holiday Season.

                      (here's a link to the page that shows several of the DL Today schedules for the 1990's 90's-2000's Disneyland Guides )


                      Here's a listing of the holiday parades by year:

                      1965 to 76 Fantasy on Parade Christmas Parade

                      1977 to 79 ~ Very Merry Christmas Parade

                      1980 to 1985 ~ Fantasy on Parade Christmas Parade

                      1986?

                      1987, 88, 89, 90, 91, 92, 93, 94 ~ Very Merry Christmas Parade

                      1995? 96?

                      1997, 98, 99, 2000, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07 ~ A Christmas Fantasy Parade

                          wiki says it started in 1994. some people should never trust wiki.

                              If you look at the link that Aladdin gave out. 1993/1994 shows an drawing of Mickey and Minnie ice stating just like the float from A Christmas Fantasy. It's also possible thath the drawing could have inspired to make a float like that.
