    Have the parades and fireworks display resumed?

    Welcome, Greg! I can't think of a better way to start summer than with a visit to the Walt Disney World Resort!

    Traditional parades and fireworks remain temporarily suspended as the Walt Disney World Resort works on maintaining a safe and healthy environment for Guests. However, the Disney Parks have found some rather creative ways for Guests to still see many of their favorite characters!

    At Magic Kingdom Park, characters such as Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Tinker Bell, the Disney Princesses, and many more can be seen in cavalcades that appear throughout the park! At EPCOT, characters and princesses can be seen as they go on a "world tour" around the park! Favorite Disney and PIXAR characters arrive in true celebrity style at Disney's Hollywood Studios as they go through the park in a motorcade! And, Disney's Animal Kingdom has found perhaps the most creative way for Guests to see characters such as Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Donald, Daisy, Timon, Rafiki, and more as they appear on flotillas along Discovery River throughout the day! Please note that characters are subject to change, but you can be assured that many characters will be seen throughout the parks!

    While times for these events are not announced, they do occur throughout the day at all four Disney Parks! During our most recent visit, I was impressed by how often the cavalcades appeared at Magic Kingdom Park! Have your camera ready! During the Mickey and Friends Cavalcade, I was able to capture a great picture of my sons with Mickey and Minnie waving to them!
