Anxiously awaiting for the parade to begin! MUNCH!!*
Jubilation! was a day-parade running in Tokyo Disneyland that began April 15, 2008 and ended April 5, 2013.
The parade began in honor of the 25th Anniversary Tokyo Disney Resort and Tokyo Disneyland. It consists of nine colorful floats that feature several Disney characters in fantastical worlds. Minnie Mouse leads the parade and Mickey Mouse and friends close it.
During the 25th Anniversary year (2008), the floats in the parade would stop for “show mode” 4 times during its course of the parade route. The average number of “show mode” stops for a usual Tokyo Disneyland parade, is 3.
Year 2009 onwards, the parade has been carried out without stopping for a “show mode” and removed the “25” from the final float. However, during the final performance in 2013, “show mode” came back for one last time…
In this final “show mode”, a specially arranged version of the song (What Time Is It?) from High School Musical 2 mixed in with the 25th Anniversary theme song “Dream Goes On” would play and guests were asked to clap their hands and dance along in celebration. Everyone participated for the last time enthusiastically as the atmosphere was in high spirits!
Talk about going out with a bang!
