Buy it Now – Jeff Lange's Disneyland Parade Classics Vol 1

disneyland-parade-classics-copyJeff Lange takes you back in time to experience this first in a series of DVDs featuring vintage parades from the “Happiest Place on Earth”, Disneyland!

Very Merry Christmas Parade (1985)

Enjoy a front row seat for the Very Merry Christmas Parade, recorded from Christmas Tree Point with a view down Main Street USA! This beloved holiday tradition includes segments from Disney classic films, including: Alice in Wonderland, The Jungle Book, Herbie the Love Bug, Dumbo, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, 101 Dalmations, Fantasia and Mary Poppins. Christmas wouldn’t be complete without an appearance by Santa Claus, joining perennial parade favorites including the soldiers from  Babes in Toyland, snowmen, prancing reindeer and a Christmas train packed with a multitude of Disney characters!

Totally Minnie Parade (1986)

Join Minnie Mouse as she creates her new  music video! This vintage Disneyland parade features bouncy music, Mickey as the producer and Donald Duck as director of this unmistakably  80’s spectacle. All of Minnie’s friends turn out – you’ll enjoy appearances  by The Three Little Pigs, Prince John, Snow White, Pinocchio and so many more!

Party Gras Parade (1990)

Stilt walkers and acrobats accompany a variety of floats in this Mardi Gras influenced procession, celebrating Disneyland’s 35th Anniversary! Marvel as Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Roger Rabbit appear as gigantic cold air balloons towering nearly 40 feet above  Main Street USA. The parade was shot from multiple camera angles so you don’t miss any of the action!

The World According to Goofy Parade (1992)

Goofy’s 60th birthday is celebrated in style, with a Goofy twist on the history of civilization! The World According to Goofy Parade ran only 5 months in 1992, but many  Disney parade fans consider it to be one of the best daytime parades in Disneyland’s history. Opening with Ludwig Von Drake giving a Goofy history lesson, you’ll see Goofy through the years from the stone ages through today!

Relive these special Disneyland parade memories year after year or experience the magic for the first time by purchasing a copy of “Jeff Lange’s  Disneyland Parade Classics”.
