Disneyland to pay tribute to little-known 'Star Wars' and 'Frozen' franchises in Rose Parade float

It's been a big year for Disneyland, with its 60th anniversary celebration, the announcement of a Star Wars land and the continued dominance of all Frozen everything.

The beloved theme park is promoting all three of those things with its colossal 2016 Rose Parade float. At the front of the float, Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Kristoff will appear around Elsa's ice castle, and you can almost guarantee "Let It Go" will be playing on repeat. Behind them, Mickey and Minnie will welcome parade watchers in front of a blinged out Sleeping Beauty Castle. A TIE fighter, X-wing and the Millennium Falcon will bring up the rear above the Star Wars-themed section of the float, which looks awfully similar to the Star Wars land concept art. We can only hope that the lovable spinning soccer ball BB-8 is secretly propelling the entire float.

The 127th Rose Parade—this year's theme is "Find Your Adventure"—kicks off at 8am on New Year's Day in Pasadena. In the meantime, check out these Disneyland floats from past parades.
