    Does anyone know if the Festival of Fantasy parade will be continuing into May 2022 at WDW? The calendar stops listing parade times at the end of April. We have a trip coming up the second week in May and are hoping to catch the parade. Thank you!

    Welcome to planDisney, Samantha! I am so excited that you're here!

    The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is finally back after an excruciatingly long hiatus, and I––much like yourself––am SO excited to experience it once again. 

    At this time, like you said, the calendar is only showing parade times until April 30, but that doesn't mean that you should be worrying about not catching your favorite parade at all. In my personal experience, I've seen that the Walt Disney World Resort website updates the entertainment times on a monthly basis, which technically means that you should be able to take a peek at the May parade times at midnight EST on May 1st. 

    Now, speaking of entertainment offerings that are finally making a triumphant return, I'd like to add that classic meet and greets––yes, you read that right––are coming back to the Walt Disney World Resort starting on April 18! Essentially, this means that you'll be able to hug some of your favorite Disney characters once again during your magical vacation. Isn't that simply enchanting? 

    Samantha, thank you so much for stopping by. Please don't hesitate to come back if you think of any other questions you might have about planning a magical Disney vacation!

    Have a magical day,
