It is so easy for us, the parade fan, to watch a marching band of toy soldiers march by, as they do, and think that such a thing is easy — that toy soldiers don’t need to put a lot of preparation into marching. And you would be wrong, which is probably pretty embarrassing for you.

The Disney Toy Soldier puts in a ton of work, matched only by dreams and dedication. The Disney Toy Solider is an inspiration.

The Disney Toy Soldiers march seasonally in Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party in the Magic Kingdom at Walt Disney World, and also the Christmas Fantasy Parade at Disneyland. Give them a wave.
