    We are coming to WDW staying at the Beach Club in August 2022. Both the Festival of Fantasy parade and the Wonderful World of Animation drop off the calendar between now and our stay. Is this correct that they will not be on in August? Thank you

    Hiya, Natalie.

    Welcome to planDisney! Can you believe your holiday to The Most Magical Place on Earth is less than two months away? How exciting!

    I imagine seeing a lack of times listed for the Wonderful World of Animation and Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade during your upcoming trip was disheartening, but don’t lose hope just yet. Typically, showtimes for parades and nighttime spectaculars are released about a month at a time. That’s likely why you aren’t yet seeing any times listed for August 2022. I encourage you to check back closer to your arrival date to see an updated list of showtimes. You can easily find this information by using the search feature in your My Disney Experience mobile app. Not only will the app list showtimes, but it also has helpful information for viewing these fun entertainment offerings, like maps and directions, and allows you to add them to your day’s plans.

    I recommend viewing the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade from Frontierland. Not only does the parade route start by Splash Mountain, but it tends to have lower crowds in this area overall. Plus, you can quickly hop over to ride Big Thunder Mountain Railroad or Splash Mountain as soon as the parade passes with a lower wait time.

    I hope this information helps, Natalie. Please stop by planDisney again if you think of further questions along the way. Enjoy your magical trip!

    Until next time,
