    Background: Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck and hosts of other Walt Disney characters are celebrating two hundred years of America's history at their homes in Disneyland, Los Angeles, and the Walt Disney World in Florida.

    The tribute to the United States bi-centennial will be performed daily for the next fifteen months. It's called "America on Parade". And as well as the cartoon characters, there are many other larger-than-life models illustrating America's history.

    An estimated 25 million people are expected to see the mile-long Parade when they visit the wonderful worlds of Walt Disney, possibly America's favourite son.

    SYNOPSIS: These characters are as well known to Americans as their Presidents, so it's only fitting they should join in the celebrations of the country's bi-centennial.

    The parade is to take place daily for the next fifteen months at both Walt Disney's wonderlands in Los Angeles and in Florida.

    More than one hundred and fifty characters have been brought to life to illustrate the country's two hundred years of history.

    The multi-multi layered sandwich is a symbol of the good life which most Americans now enjoy.

    There are altogether one hundred and fifty characters in the mile long parade. The promoters estimate that twenty-five million people will see their celebration before it ends in September next year.
