Disneyland is well-known for its nostalgia, fun attractions, food, and of course it’s entertainment. One of my favorite events that happens daily at Disneyland is the Magic Happens Parade. To make this parade even more fun and enjoyable, you can reserve a dining package from The Plaza Inn. This package is a great way to enjoy lunch and secure a VIP viewing spot for the parade. In this blog, I’ll explain a bit about the package details and why it’s a must-do for your next visit to Disneyland.

About The Plaza Inn 

Located on Main Street, U.S.A., the Plaza Inn is a restaurant that is original to Disneyland’s opening in 1955.  Originally named The Red Wagon Inn, it was one of Walt’s favorite places to dine. Today, the Plaza Inn is themed with nostalgic Victorian decor and is well known for its famous fried chicken.

The Plaza Inn has indoor seating as well as an outdoor patio option.  It is open daily for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

After enjoying your meal at The Plaza Inn, it’s time to enjoy the parade!

The Magic Happens parade is truly one of the best parades you’ll see at Disneyland. You will be singing and dancing along with Moana, Anna, Elsa, and even Arthur and the Sorcerer! The floats, costumes, and music are not to be missed. You just might end up singing the soundtrack for the rest of the day. One of my favorite lyrics in the parade “It’s just a little faith and trust, and with a little pixie dust, your wildest dreams can be yours” captures the essence of this parade perfectly.
