The “new” Maleficent Disney Villains Promenade isn’t really that new: yet that certainly isn’t a complaint. As speculated, the daily Disney’s Halloween Festival event has seen the return of the mighty Dreams of Power float to the Disneyland Park parade route, forming the main feature of this character procession from Fantasyland to the drawbridge of Le Château de la Belle au Bois Dormant on Central Plaza.

New Mickey’s Halloween Celebration “Raise the Rafters!” float revealed – concept art

Mickey's Halloween Celebration "Raise the Rafters!" float, Disneyland Paris

Mickey’s Halloween Celebration will receive its third new, original float for the upcoming Disney’s Halloween Festival at Disneyland Paris. The daily cavalcade is to be expanded for 2014 with “Raise the Rafters!”, a float featuring the Three Little Pigs, Clarabelle and Horace Horsecollar, pictured above for the first time in official concept art.

Those rare characters will stand amongst a spooky purple barnyard, entangled in the branches of trees with crows overhead and colourful mushrooms amongst the pumpkins on the floor of autumnal leaves. This final concept art was released by D23 in a recent feature on the season.

Joining the two dedicated Halloween floats introduced for the event’s debut last year, “Raise the Rafters!” will expand the Harvest-themed mini-parade, due to be performed three times daily and featuring up to 60 performers. Certainly a step-change for Halloween celebrations at Disneyland Paris, which previously only featured Halloween as an adjunct the main daily parade on a temporary seasonal float.

Last year’s floats were reportedly built from the bones of former Disney’s Fantillusion floats, so we can likely assume that a carcass from the thoroughly defunct nighttime parade has been recycled again — any guesses which one?

Original theme song “Vive La Vie” will return after a popular debut in 2013, as will Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Chip, Dale, Clarice, Uncle Scrooge, Donald and all three of his nephews, while Daisy will be promoted to lead the parade as “Miss Harvest 2014”.
