According to the Disney Parks Blog there will be a limited time run of this new parade.

Mickey Mouse and his friends are joining the world-famous Disneyland Band for special performances of “Mickey and Friends Band-Tastic Cavalcade.

This “cavalcade” will feature live music and lots of your favorite Disney characters! Starting on July 18th, Disneyland Park guests have the opportunity watch two-times daily. It will take place along the Disneyland Park parade route.

The march steps off in grand style, complete with colorfully adorned Main Street, U.S.A. vehicles, and continues through the park with stops for special show moments where guests can dance and clap along with their fantastic friends.

Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse will be there, along with Donald Duck, Goofy, Pluto and a parade of rarely seen Disney characters. Some of the beloved Disney friends who could appear in the cavalcade from day to day may include Peter Pan and Captain Hook, Genie and Aladdin, King Louie, Terk, Marie and more. You never know who you might see!

This limited time experience will start on July 18th and will only run through August 1st. as the Main Street Electrical Parade will return on August 2nd- September 30 (also for a limited time.)

I have to think this filler until the Oogie Boogie Bash at Disney California Adventure starts. This is replacing the Mickey’s Halloween Party event that was in Disneyland Park too. It seems like these limited-time parade offerings are meant to keep people coming until then. But with the national news they are getting about the super low crowds at Disneyland and Galaxy’s Edge in particular, I can understand why they are trying to do whatever they can. But hey, it’s a win for park guests!
