    Are they having the parades again

    Hi Liz!

    Welcome to planDisney and thanks for asking about one of my favorite things at Walt Disney World Resort... parades! I love seeing my favorite Disney Characters make their way through the theme parks with incredible music, beautiful costumes and amazing choreography.

    I'm so happy to tell you that the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade returned last week! So you will be able to enjoy this amazing parade as it makes its way through Magic Kingdom. This is always an incredibly popular parade, but since it has just returned, I'm sure quite a few Guests will have it on their "must-do" lists. I recommend that you plan on finding your viewing location early or utilizing the Disney Genie+ Service to make a Lightning Lane reservation to get the best view of the festivities.

    Liz, right now, you will find that the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is the only full-length parade at Walt Disney World Resort, but there are quite a few other options to see Disney Characters in cavalcades as they make their way through the theme parks. My family loved the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade because we could see some unique characters we haven't seen in person before. Plus, Mickey's Celebration Cavalcade is a fantastic opportunity to see Mickey and his friends in their EARidsecent outfits for the Walt Disney World 50th Anniversary Celebration. Be sure to utilize the Disney Genie Tip Board for showtimes of cavalcades and parades during your trip. Plus, keep an eye on the Disney Parks Blog for the latest announcements about new opportunities to see your favorite Characters during your upcoming vacation.

    T-T-F-N, ta ta for now!
