Just Published: Theme Park Insider: 2016 Year in Review
Disneyland's float includes three units, featuring the Frozen, Sleeping Beauty's Castle, and the upcoming Star Wars Land. I spoke with float designer Scott Auerbach about what fans can expect to see this New Year's Day, either in person on the parade route in Pasadena or watching on TV.
Frozen producer Peter Del Vecho, left, and director Chris Buck were helping with the decoration on that unit.
Volunteers were using blenders to pulverize flowers into the proper texture for the purple and white covering.
Decoration takes several days and requires hundreds of volunteers.
This year's Rose Parade will allow viewers their first look at Disney's upcoming Star Wars Land, which will be represented on one of the three units in the float.
A volunteer brushes glue for floral material on the underside of the Millennium Falcon.
Another volunteer carefully applies the seeds that will form the contrail behind the Falcon on the Disneyland float.
We will be covering the Tournament of Roses parade from the corner of Orange Grove and Colorado boulevards this Friday morning, Jan. 1, 2016. Follow us online, on Twitter and on Instagram for our live parade coverage, including photos of the completed Disneyland Resort float.Tweet
