    when are the parades and fireworks

    Hi, there!

     Welcome to planDisney, Monica. I'm so happy you stopped by and even happier to see you'll be visiting the Walt Disney World Resort next week! I bet you're counting down the days with excitement. 

     When my family vacations at the Walt Disney World Resort, we all look forward to different things. My kids can't wait to experience all the immersive attractions, my husband can't wait to enjoy unique dining experiences, and I can't wait to see incredible entertainment. Parades and fireworks have been my most favorite component of a Disney vacation since I was a little girl!

     As part of Disney's phased reopening, some of the traditional parades and fireworks that Guests have long enjoyed are temporarily unavailable. But not to worry! There are still lots of magical entertainment offerings to enjoy in the theme parks. 

     When my family visited the Walt Disney World Resort this summer, we really loved the impromptu cavalcades that passed by in the theme parks. We were able to see and wave to our favorite Disney Characters at Magic Kingdom Park, EPCOT, Disney's Hollywood Studios, and Disney's Animal Kingdom Theme Park in these mini-parades. My daughter, a princess fan, especially enjoyed The Royal Princess Processional at Magic Kingdom Park! Such fun!

     Your visit is the perfect time to catch a performance of Happily Ever After. This nighttime spectacular at Magic Kingdom Park is not to be missed! Happily Ever After will have its final performance this Fall as the Walt Disney World Resort prepares for exciting new entertainment offerings. On the day of your visit to Magic Kingdom Park, check the daily schedule for the day's performance time. 

     I hope this was helpful, Monica. I'm wishing you a magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!
