    Are parade times the same in December as right how’s schedule? Where best free place to watch parade

    Hi Adam,

    The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is a spectacle for the senses! With beautiful floats, beloved characters, brightly colored costumes, and moving music, you're going to LOVE it!

    Since parade and show times are always subject to change, I'd definitely encourage you to keep an eye on the calendar, which lists parade times for each day to make sure that you don't miss it. Of course, I'd also suggest picking up a Times Guide when you arrive at Magic Kingdom Park for the day, which will also show you what time the parade will be happening on the day you'll be visiting. The Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is currently running at 2:00 p.m. daily, and it looks like it will still be at that time for most days in December. Beginning December 22nd, the schedule changes and instead of the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, the incredible Mickey's Once Upon a Christmastime Parade will be running twice a day, currently scheduled for 12:00 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. each afternoon, filling Guests with holiday magic and Christmas joy!

    There are plenty of great viewing locations all along the parade route, and I'd simply encourage you to grab a yummy snack and find a spot about 45 minutes before the parade begins. My family likes to find a spot in Frontierland out in front of Country Bear Jamboree so that we're close to the start of the parade.

    Thanks so much for visiting us at the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Adam, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're planning your trip. I hope that you have an amazing time experiencing the wonder of an afternoon parade and that your vacation is truly magical!
