Happiness is Here Parade at Magic Kingdom (Disneyland Montreal). is the current daytime parade at Disneyland Montreal which premiered on May 12, 2045 as part of the The Happiness Year, celebrating the 25th anniversary of Disneyland Montreal. This parade replaced the former Disney's All Stars Parade which had been running since the park opened in 2020. The Montreal version of the parade was inspired by Happiness is Here Parade.
