    Is there a parade everyday in December at Magic Kingdom? If so, do you need a special ticket to see the parade?

    Hi Baylee! There is nothing quite like seeing some of our favorite Disney characters parade through Magic Kingdom Park! It is a happy memory that so many Guests take away from their visit to the Most Magical Place on Earth!

    The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is held in Magic Kingdom Park! It is typically held twice a day – once at 12:00 PM and again at 3:00 PM. Entertainment, such as the parades, are always subject to change. I recommend you use the link I am providing here to check the daily performance times of the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade.

    Now, something extra magical is going to happen a little later in December! Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, which is usually exclusive to Mickey’s Very Merry Christmas Party (a separately ticketed event), will be held during regular operating hours at Magic Kingdom Park beginning on December 23! Guests will need to check the Walt Disney World Resort website once we get a little closer to the date!

    So, whether you get to see the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade or Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmastime Parade, I hope you get to see some of your favorite characters!

    Happy Planning!
