Disneyland has been celebrating their 60th anniversary with the year-long (and then some) Diamond Celebration, and that will continue on into 2016. At the January 1, 2016 Rose parade in Pasadena, California, a specially designed Disneyland float will appear, and it's a doozy.

The float features three branches of Disney, including one very significant addition, in a "Find Your Adventure" theme. The popularity powerhouse of Frozen leads the way, with Elsa's ice castle at the front, with Anna, Elsa, Olaf, and Kristoff all on the float. Part two, in the middle, is the Sleeping Beauty Castle that stands as the centerpiece of Disneyland Park. Mickey and Minnie will ride on that section.

Finally, just a couple of weeks after Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters, Star Wars gets the entire third section of the float, complete with, according to artists renderings, the Millennium Falcon, an X-Wing, and a TIE-fighter all suspended above it! The rendering also shows Captain Phasma, Kylo Ren, two stormtroopers, Chewbacca, C-3PO and R2-D2 on the flaot, so they'll likely be the characters included.
