    How do I find out what shows are on 1st May? and where they are? Is there no parade that day? I thought there was a parade every day?????

    Hello Jane!

    Welcome to planDisney! Jane, my friend, I love that you looking to plan your days at Walt Disney World Resort! 

    Don't worry! The Hours & Events Calendar which for some reason is not available on the Australian Walt Disney World Website is constantly updated up to even the day of your arrival. Events such as parades are constantly being added. There is no notice that any parades are being cancelled or added but there is a great chance that when you arrive you will have a chance to enjoy the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade at 12 noon and 3 pm in Magic Kingdom Park. This parade has consistently operated at these times every day pending any last-minute cancellations due to weather or other issues. If any new parade decides to make a magical appearance then it will be announced on the Disney Parks Blog

    To help make your day run smoothly when in the Parks I recommend guests start prepping their Disney Genie before they arrive. If you are able, I suggest you download the My Disney Experience Mobile App and on the main page look for "Upcoming Plans" and then click on "My Day." At the top of "My Day," there is something that should say "Start Here to Plan Your Day!" Go through the options and let Genie know your preferences and must-dos for your Park day. Your Tip Board will then be populated with your favored items and goals near the top. Show times will also be here as well! If you purchase Disney Genie+ it will integrate that information to assist you when booking the Lightning Lanes for the rides you want to enjoy. 

    If you continue to have questions feel free to let us know

    Happy Planning!
