73 - Tournament of Roses Parade  18:04

Disneyland has had a long relationship with the famous Tournament of Roses Parade. It's first float entry was in 1955, announcing the upcoming opening of Disneyland. Walt Disney himself was the parade Grand Marshall in 1966, and Mickey Mouse received the same honor in 2005 as part of Disneyland's 50th anniversary celebration.
