This is the 9th year we have shared on Mousesteps the Easter Pre-Parade at the Magic Kingdom. The parade didn’t change too much this year except that Rabbit and White Rabbit replaced Nick and Judy from Zootopia, joining White Rabbit and Rabbit on the rabbit float. Daisy, as always, leads the Azalea Trail Maids from Mobile, Alabama. Here is a look at the procession from today! The Easter Pre-Parade will run again tomorrow after both parade times.
The weather was really cloudy today, and it actually started raining just as the pre-parade started. But we were able to get it in before the rain got a little heavier.
The Easter pre-parade precedes Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade.
Here is our video, and then check out the rest of the article!
Two ostriches and two hippos from Fantasia have been part of the parade for years.
Behind them, Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny, Daisy and the Azalea Trail Maids can be seen.
Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny are driven the parade route. Daisy received her own Azalea Trail Maid costume in 2014, prior to that we saw her in a couple of different outfits.
The hippos and ostriches walk by.
Mr. and Mrs. Easter Bunny are next. Here are a few photos of them as Daisy and the Azalea Trail Maids approach.
The Azalea Trail Maids are seniors in high school, and ambassadors for Mobile, Alabama. They are part of the pre-parade each year. Here are some photos of them in the parade.
Performers in flower and butterfly costumes are up next.
This float that we see in other parades is used for Thumper, White Rabbit, Rabbit and Miss Bunny this year. Back in 2010, Chicken Little and Abby Mallard were also on the float, and I mentioned Nick and Judy replaced Rabbit and White Rabbit for 2016 and 2017.
One last look at that float.
Performers in chicken costumes are the last section of the parade, with Clara Cluck in her usual barn float.
That is it from this year’s Magic Kingdom Easter Pre-Parade! It always is fun and festive to see each year.
