Disney Magic Moments Parade in Copacabana
Below is a partial, loose translation of this news release about the upcoming event.
This Sunday, November 29th Mickey, Goofy, Pluto, Donald Duck and company will be together for the first time in the middle of Copacabana beach, in a show that promises to delight parents and children. The most famous pedestrian street in the country will be filled with joy at the Disney Magic Moments Parade, starting at 9 am. Featuring 350 artists, dancers and actors, the parade will begin at Station 6, near Forte de Copacabana (between the Rua Joaquim Nabuco and Av. Princesa Isabel) and continue to the height of Princess Elizabeth Street.
In honor of Brazil, the Disney Magic Moments Parade will open with the character Zé Carioca, created in 1940 and will have as company Donald Duck. The event will also include seven floats: Mickey Mouse and Friends, Fairies, Beauty and The Beast, The Little Mermaid, Winnie the Pooh, Toy Story and Princesses. The parade will also feature entries highlighting The Lion King, High School Musical, Lilo & Stitch, Disney Villains, The Boat of Peter Pan, and Playhouse Disney Mogli. Everything was built entirely in the city to adapt to the pavement's width. For fans of the musical High School Musical, a surprise: the entire cast of the Brazilian film will be on board the car dedicated to this theme.
All dancers participating in the Parade are Brazilians. The attraction will also feature 20 songs especially recorded in Portuguese, in a studio in Los Angeles, so the audience at the site can better appreciate the parade.
