Disneyland Returns to the Rose Parade with Star Wars, Frozen
The Disneyland Resort has announced that it will go back to Pasadena on New Year's Day, with a 60th Anniversary Diamond Celebration float in the 127th Rose Parade.

The three-part float will feature Sleeping Beauty's Castle in its center, decked out for the 60th celebration and with Mickey and Minnie Mouse riding aboard. On either side of the castle will be Disney's two most dominant current franchises, Frozen and Star Wars.
The Frozen third of the float will feature Queen Elsa's ice castle, with appearances by Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff. The Star Wars
element will feature the Millennium Falcon, an X-wing, and a TIE fighter, engaged in battle over what looks a bit like the concept art for Star Wars Land
in Disneyland Park.
The Disneyland Resort last entered a float in the Rose Parade in 2013, when it featured Cars Land. The Rose Parade steps off in Theme Park Insider's home town of Pasadena on January 1, and airs on Disney-owned ABC as well as NBC and several cable networks. And, of course, we will be covering the parade here on Theme Park Insider later that day.

Disney hasn't given specifics about toy sales in the US, but I found this info from an article about UK toy sales.
As a volunteer, do you know where the float is being built?
