    How to be Parade Grand Marshall

    Hi Barbara,

    Thank you for stopping by planDisney with your great question about your upcoming visit to the Walt Disney World Resort.

    It is a dream of mine to have my family picked to be honorary Grand Marshals for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade and I see it is yours as well.  Each day, Guests are picked at random for this special honor.  Although I haven't been picked yet, a friend of mine has and she told me that on the day her family was chosen they arrived at Magic Kingdom Park very early before it was opened to Guests.  Their family put on their best smiles and greeted everyone around them as they waited.  Not only did this really increase the Magic for everyone around them, it may have been the thing that made her family "stand out" just a little bit.  Even if you aren't picked, you are sure to have a great time and may even pass out a little bit of extra Pixie Dust to those around you.

    Barbara, I see that you will be visiting Walt Disney World in the autumn and I wanted you to know about some of the special events going on at that time.  One of my favorite events is the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE and I hope you have a chance to stop by and experience it.  Tasting and sipping my way "around the World" at the Global Marketplaces is my favorite thing to do at this amazing festival.  One of the best things about the EPCOT International Food & Wine Festival presented by CORKCICLE is that attending it is included with your admission to EPCOT, and so going to this festival is always on my "must-do" list whenever I visit and the event is taking place.

    Have a Magical vacation!  Please come back and ask all of your vacation planning questions here at planDisney where we are always happy to help you plan every detail of your next Disney vacation.
