    How far out does WDW publish the entertainment calendar? We will be there 1/13-1/17. We plan to be in MK on 1/15, but it doesn’t seem (at this moment) that there will be any parades or calvacade. I’m really hoping it just isn’t published until a month out

    Welcome to planDisney, Danielle! I'm a planner too, so I totally understand wanting to see what will be running for your trip. 

    I wish there was a hard timeline that I could share with you, but my best recommendation is to regularly check the Walt Disney World site for updates. You can filter by each Park and activity. I want to share with you that on January 15, 2024,  a special event will be held called Disney After Hours at Magic Kingdom Park. This separately ticketed event officially begins at 10 pm, but eligible Guests may arrive as early as 7 pm. You can still enjoy Happily Ever After, the nighttime spectacular in Magic Kingdom, at 8 pm that evening. 

    The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade typically enchants Guests twice daily at midday and 3 pm. There is so much more on offer, from the early morning welcome at Let the Magic Begin, to Mickey's Magical Friendship Faire, and magical moments in between at spots throughout the Park like the pianist at Casey's Corner. Entertainment is in full force throughout the day. While the timing for these events is yet to be confirmed for your stay, I have always found them running at similar times on our adventures.

    You may also find Disney's complimentary Genie Service a help when planning your days. You can enter your preferences, and a personalized itinerary is created to help maximize your day!  

    I hope this information helps today, Danielle, and please do let me know if you need anything else ahead of your Walt Disney World adventure. Enjoy the BEST time! Louise
