Walt Disney World's "50th Anniversary of Disney Parks Magic" float appeared in the 2005 Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as part of the "Happiest Homecoming on Earth" celebration held to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Walt Disney Parks and Resorts, marked by the opening of its first park, Disneyland, on July 17, 1955. The float was designed as an old-style showboat with a number of Disney characters on board, and country singer LeAnn Rimes performing "Remember When," the theme song specially written for the anniversary by Richard Marx.
