Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is one of the highlights of Magic Kingdom’s holiday special event. The procession travels down Main Street, U.S.A., bringing holiday cheer to each Guest.

Beloved Disney characters dance and walk around dressed in festive costumes. From iconic Toy Story characters to even Santa Claus himself, Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade is a sight to behold.

As a part of the entertainment, a regiment of toy soldiers marches down Main Street, U.S.A., in one of the most impressive displays of the parade. But in this video, one of the toy soldiers gives the signal, indicating that something has gone wrong.

In this video, the toy soldier can be seen raising their left arm and looking to the right as they start to slow down. The supervisor quickly notices and takes action, leading the performer to safety.

Nobody knows why the performer decided to give the signal, but it could have been anything from overheating to a costume malfunction.

We can imagine that the toy soldier costumes are one of the most challenging costumes to wear while marching in the parade. Between the limited visibility and heavy footwear, which produces the immersive clacking sound, it’s safe to assume that performing as one of the toy soldiers is tiring.

Everybody knows that Disney World takes safety and illusion very seriously, and seeing the performer escorted away so quickly is a prime example of this.

Although we don’t know why the performer had to stop, we at DisneyTips hope they’re okay!
