    Is Maleficent breathing fire during the Festival of Fantasy parade?

    Hiya, Patty!

    Welcome back to planDisney, friend! The magical moment many Guests have been waiting for has finally arrived, and the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade has returned. Fabulous friends from Olaf to Tigger are back to share in the fun. And of course, there are a few villains as well, including an infamous and magnificent dragon.

    I am delighted to report that Maleficent is back to her full former glory and breathing fire as she makes her way through Liberty Square and Down Main Street U.S.A.. So get your camera ready for some amazing action shots! The parade currently has two showtimes, 12 and 3 PM. I recommend checking the My Disney Experience app as your trip gets closer to confirm parade times during your stay. 

    If you have not previously used the My Disney Experience app during a magical adventure, I highly recommend adding this app to your smart device before your visit. Checking parade showtimes is just the start of what this amazing planning tool offers. You can use the My Disney Experience app to make dining reservations, create a MagicMobile digital pass, and even plan out the perfect day with Disney Genie. Disney Genie is an all-new complimentary feature of the app that helps you plan the best day ever based on your must-see and do preferences. To get started just tap the three bars at the bottom of the screen in the app, and then select the My Genie Day tile. Genie takes your added favorites and creates a magical itinerary that you can change as you go throughout your theme park day. The app uses estimated wait times to help plan the best times to visit favorite attractions and sets aside time for your travel party's top priority experiences, like the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. You can add your preferences before you go or even moments before you head to the parks. Genie will create your best day ever on the morning of your visit. Planning has never been easier!

    We hope to see ya real soon!
