Overview and Thoughts

How did the park’s first attempt at a night parade fare?

I’ve seen many night parades in Disney parks, so the bar is set quite high. But this Death March is certainly memorable – for its over-the-top seriousness and incredibly detailed costumes. Like its scare zone, is more like a funeral march honouring the dead, in a very stoic, undead way.

Covering parades is never easy because of the crowds choking up the pathways; but because the Death March is light parade, it is easier to move along the streets to follow it. With my group of friends I always call this task ‘Chasing the March’ – where we follow the procession from Egypt all the way till New York zone.

Curiously the ‘band’ is dressed in mariachi outfits, but they are not playing mariachi style music – instead it is a percussion ensemble. Perhaps it is too difficult to put together groups of violinists and guitarists in such short notice – and not to mention people who can sing in Spanish. Well, they still look good, though.

Starting from the Ancient Egypt section of the park, the Death March is a night parade that goes around the park in an anti-clockwise direction. The performers do make a full loop around the park, but they do not perform along the Sci-Fi City section.

When Lady Death is near a zone, the area music shifts into a chilling pulse – as if the life of the zone is taken away.

After Lady Death goes on stage for the Resurrection, the Death March splits, with the Sugar Skull departing first. The percussion ensemble becomes the lead for the returning leg of the Death March.

DEATH MARCH Highlights Video

As a bonus, enjoy a highlights video of the Death March to hear its hypnotic music.

Admittedly, this is not a good video because it was taken in between photos – and I did not have the chance to make sure the exposure is correct for video. Often I am running around because certain characters look best at specific sections of the park. It can be quite maddening.
