So, who's bringing Santa a new sleigh for Christmas?
Part of the final float in Disneyland's A Christmas Fantasy parade collapses on the route yesterday, throwing Santa Claus from his sleigh in one of the more awkward (and frankly, a bit scary) moments in Disney parade history.
On the float, Santa rides in a sleigh that is suspended between two supports, one on either side. That suspension apparatus appears to have broken, rotating the sleigh forward — and pitching Santa from his perch.
Santa was strapped to the float's chassis by a safety harness, so he was not thrown from the float, though he was left hanging until he could removed by parade personnel. The float continued down Main Street to complete the parade route, since the unit can't be removed easily mid-route.
Santa returned in today's Disneyland Christmas parade, though he was riding on a different float.

Here is our video from earlier in the season of how the Disneyland "A Christmas Fantasy" parade is supposed to run.Tweet
