The new Magic Happens parade coming to Disneyland in 2020 will feature familiar Disney characters, some old favorites as well as a few surprises, according to a Disney casting notice.

Disneyland will launch the new Magic Happens daytime parade along Main Street USA in spring 2020 with Moana, Coco and Sleeping Beauty floats all lead by Mickey Mouse.

A Disney Auditions casting call revealed more than a dozen characters from “Frozen,” “Cinderella,” “Princess & the Frog,” “Peter Pan” and “Aladdin” that will be part of the Magic Happens parade.

The casting call seeks performers to play the roles of Anna, Elsa and Kristoff from “Frozen,” Princess Tiana and Prince Naveen from “Princess and the Frog,” Cinderella and her Fairy Godmother, Peter Pan and Tinker Bell as well as Aladdin.

Kristoff and Prince Naveen will be making their first appearances in a Disneyland parade, according to WDW News Today.

The most surprising characters joining the Magic Happens parade? Merlin and Arthur from “The Sword in the Stone” and the Blue Fairy from “Pinocchio.”

A live-action remake of Disney’s 1963 animated film “The Sword in the Stone” is being created for the upcoming Disney Plus streaming service. The Blue Fairy played a key role through the years on a lead float in the Main Street Electrical Parade.

During the D23 Expo in Anaheim, Disney unveiled three floats for “Moana,” “Sleeping Beauty” and “Coco” that will join the Magic Happens parade.

The Moana float will feature the title character on a flower-covered sailing canoe riding a sweeping blue wave.

The two-part Coco float will be connected by a red and orange floral bridge. Miguel plays guitar under a gazebo while a pair of skeletons perform on a stage under a blue sugar skull marquee.

Towering castle turrets dot the Sleeping Beauty float as Princess Aurora dances with Prince Phillip. Nearby, the fairies Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather wave their magic wands.

The Disney casting call included roles for five “Sleeping Beauty” characters: Princess Aurora, Prince Phillip, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather. The audition also seeks a performer to play Moana. No “Coco” characters were included in the casting call.

Rehearsals begin in November in preparation for an early 2020 launch of the parade. Auditions will be held in Anaheim on Sept. 21.
