    Can't wait for our trip next week!! Rain is in the forecast. Will the Magic Kingdom parades and/or Fantasmic be canceled due to rain if there is no thunder or lightening?

    Welcome back to the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Erica! 

    Your magical vacation is just days away! I bet you're too excited to sleep :) 

    When rain decides to invade the magic, there are a few things that can happen depending on the parade/show being affected. 

    • For parades at Magic Kingdom, the show must go on! BUT, for the safety of the dancers and floats while trying to navigate slick surfaces, you'll get to witness the alternative parade, The Rainy Day Character Cavalcade. This rainy day parade offers the opportunity to still see all your favorites as they load onto safer vehicles to make the trek. 

    Fantasmic! will initially see a delay, with the possibility of cancellations even after the delayed start time. Walt Disney World® Resort is wild about safety for its guests and performers and this show has these amazing Cast Members climbing walls, dancing on floats, and navigating around pyrotechnics. Should there be a cancellation, an announcement will be made inside the Hollywood Hills Amphitheater, as well as out in the park. 

    I hope this helps, Erica! Please do not hesitate to reach out to me directly with any additional last minute questions you may have. 

    Safe travels!
