Disney is putting the final touches on the new Festival of Fantasy Parade, which will debut in March at Fantasyland inside Walt Disney World's Magic Kingdom.
This week, Disney released a behind-the-scenes look at music of the parade.
The daily daytime parade will feature an original theme song and score by composer Mark Hammond. Hammond has previously worked on "World of Color" at Disney California Adventure park, as well as the "Flights of Fantasy" parade at Hong Kong Disneyland.
Disney's latest parade will feature scenes and characters from classic Disney films such as "Peter Pan" and "Cinderella" and more modern fare such as "Brave" and "Tangled." Anna and Elsa, the two main characters from Disney's hit animated musical "Frozen" will make their Disney theme-park parade debuts in Festival of Fantasy.
A new Maleficent-themed float -- a 26-foot-long steampunk-inspired dragon -- will also be making its debut. "Maleficent" is one of the most anticipated films coming this summer and tells the untold story of one of Disney's most iconic villains, Maleficent, the antagonist in the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty."
The parade will mix new technologies with old favorties and will include nine floats making up seven scenes.
Magic Kingdom has been without a day parade since "Celebrate a Dream Come True" ended Jan. 4.
