Grogu, Disney Wish and More Disney Highlights from the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade

Happy Thanksgiving everybody! This morning, the 95th Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade aired on NBC and there were quite a few Disney moments to highlight, including a new balloon, a new float and a special preview for a new VR experience.

  • First off, the big highlight was obviously the new Grogu balloon.
  • The new balloon from Funko brings the lovable character from The Mandalorian to the parade this year.
  • Grogu was accompanied by that little ball he’s been trying to get his hands on for so long in the popular Disney+ original series.

  • Even Weird Al Yankovic got in on the fun with the new Grogu balloon.

  • Next, we got a look at a new float celebrating the Disney Wish, the newest ship from Disney Cruise Line.

  • The float featured a song from Jordan Fisher, Mickey Mouse and a friends.
  • The Disney Wish is set to make its maiden voyage in summer 2022.

  • And finally, we got an AR experience as Seezelslak and a porg were rescued from some stormtroopers by the Millennium Falcon.
  • The bit promoted a preview of “Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge,” which can now be found at the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort through January 5, 2022.
