Christmas On Parade At Disneyland
Today I had the privilege and pleasure of attending a seasonal Walt Disney Archives Presents presentation at the Studio. Given by authors Becky Cline (she of the Walt Disney Archives) and Graham Allan, the excellent show covered holiday celebrations—including of course parades— throughout the years at the Disney Theme Park. Becky and Allen wrote an article about this festive subject in the current issue of Disney twenty-three, the official magazine of D23, but their live presentation was more detailed and jam-packed with photos and even video. (UPDATE: You can see some of the holly-jolly historical photos unearthed by Becky and Graham at the D23 website .) To faintly but festively echo this joyous presentation, here's a look at a Disneyland Park parade from Christmas past, Fantasy on Parade, from the Winter 1968 issue of Disney News.
