    Hi again! A ques. about parades. We are planning to be at MK 12/22 and 12/25. There are 2 parades listed at around 3:00 - Dream come true and Once upon a Christmas. Are these 2 diff. parades and do they have the same route? TIA

    Welcome back to the Moms Panel, Vidya!  December is my favorite time of year to visit the "Most Magical Place on Earth!" I looked at the Disney Parks Calendar online just now and noticed that Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade is scheduled for 3:00 p.m. and Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. on the days you are planning to visit Magic Kingdom Park. I have found from my own personal experience that Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade traditionally replaces Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade beginning the day after the last Mickey's Very Merry Christmas Party is held. When we visited Magic Kingdom Park last December, we saw Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade at 3:00 p.m. and Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade was not shown on that particular day. I called Disney directly just now to inquire about the Magic Kingdom Park Hours for December. The cast member I spoke with did inform me that she believed that the Disney Parks Calendar online is still being updated. I would recommend checking the Disney Parks Calendar online periodically as operating hours are subject to change. Be sure to pick up a Times Guide when entering Magic Kingdom Park for up to date parade times. Although Celebrate A Dream Come True Parade and Mickey's Once Upon A Christmastime Parade are two different parades, they both generally follow the same route. I hope this helps! Please don't hesitate to write me back with any additional questions. Best wishes for a Magical and Merry trip, Vidya!
    Happy Planning,
