    Does anyone know the lyrics to the Adventure Friends Cavalcade in Magic Kingdom. My Children would like to sing along with the parade as it goes by. Thanks for any help.

    Well hi there Ron, and welcome to planDisney!

    I hope you're getting very excited for your visit coming up very soon but I must admit, I didn't realize how daunting of a challenge was ahead of me when I accepted this quest! However as a former Entertainment Cast Member I knew it was my duty to make sure that I saw it through the end - especially with a song as special as the one heard throughout the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade. This week I ventured out to Magic Kingdom Park and over the course of several visits speaking with a multitude of Cast Members from Guest Relations to Parade Audience Control (PAC) and Entertainment, they all shared that they too have also tried their best to learn these lyrics as they listen to them every day!

    The following is the result of a collaborative effort between myself and the incredible Cast Members and perhaps a few Character friends and Princesses alike who were eager to assist with my quest and helped put together what just may be the closest we've come to the most complete version of these lyrics on the internet:

    "Let’s go, get to movin’ now! Come join the celebration, yeah! 
    Let’s have a great adventure now - through every land and nation, yeah!
    Dream big - it’s all right there for you, blast off let’s see what we can see
    Can’t wait - explore the old and new,  adventure waits for you and me

    Come and join this kickin’ cavalcade have some fun all right!
    And if it’s just imagination we’ll see the world tonight!

    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    Let’s take this trip together we’ll remember it forever yeah,
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    Take a carpet ride to Agrabah see lots of families do it all,
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    From Andy’s backyard where we play to singing in a French cafe,
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    There’s Adventure everywhere!

    Let’s cross all the seven seas, and see the seven wonders yeah!
    We’ll fly across the galaxies and journey way down under yeah!

    Come and join this kickin’ cavalcade have some fun all right!
    And if it’s just imagination we’ll see the world tonight!

    (Everybody now!) 
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    Discover magic in a snap, let your heart be your map,
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    It’s a playground far and wide, see the Scottish countryside,
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    To China's snowy mountain peaks and Mexico’s cobbled streets,
    ¡Vamos! ¡Vamos!
    There's adventure everywhere!"

    I hope that this is helpful, Ron; it was interesting to discover not only that there are older variations of this song from previous Magic Kingdom Park parades, but that the lyrics were changed each time over the years. In this current version, I not only challenge you and your children this week to see which lyrics match up with the Characters in the cavalcade but to learn the much faster bridge of the song (that rivals the speed of Maui's singing) involving places like the beaches of Brazil, a cool desert oasis, the temples of the Mayans, jungles and even outer space!

    Here's to all of your family's upcoming Disney Adventures!
