Parades are a longtime tradition of the Disney theme parks, with the first on Disneyland’s opening day. Here’s some photos I took of The World According to Goofy parade at Disneyland in 1992.  The lavish parade represented Goofy in various settings including the Italian “Renais-sauce,” “Egyptian Daze” and running for president of the United States. I’d vote for him!

Here’s another fun photo of Marcia Miner, when she was the 1967 Disneyland Ambassador to the World. In this image, Marcia is ready to go on tour with seven familiar faces to promote a theatrical re-release of “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.” Before home videos, Disney would re-release their animated features in theaters every few years, and Disney entertainers, cast members, such as Marcia, Disney characters, often including Mickey Mouse and others would tour cities to let delighted audiences know about these films and the latest happenings at Disneyland.

If you missed my interview with Marcia, you can LISTEN HERE.

I always love to use Disney characters as subjects for my photography, so I couldn’t resist when I saw Captain Hook and Mr. Smee greeting guests on Disney’s private island, Castaway Cay! Be sure to contact Shani for more information about the cruises that sail to this magical getaway!
