    For the past ~14 days, the latest day shown for the parade at Magic Kingdom has been April 3, 2024. Is the schedule posting delayed, or are there actually days with no parade? (Visiting April 27-May 3).

    Hi there Jason, and welcome to planDisney!

    Thanks for stopping by as you prepare for your spring getaway to the Most Magical Place on Earth. I LOVE visiting Florida in April and May. The weather is usually fabulous (Olaf would approve!), and the EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is still blooming.

    Currently, Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade in Magic Kingdom Park runs twice daily at 12 and 3 PM. You're correct in that the schedule for this show is not available past April 3, but it doesn't necessarily mean the parade won't take place during your visit. We have yet to receive any information regarding an end date or suspension of this parade, so in all likelihood, the schedule just has not been determined past early April. I recommend you continue checking park hours on the Walt Disney World website and My Disney Experience mobile app for an updated entertainment schedule as your vacation approaches.

    I hope you can catch Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade next month, Jason! From the swinging ruffians on Rapunzel's float to dancing Lost Boys skipping alongside Peter Pan's ship, you'll experience nonstop, spirited Disney fun. My family's favorite way to view this parade is from a bench or patio in Frontierland (the Country Bear Jamboree side of the street is usually in the shade) while snacking on popcorn or Mickey Premium Bars.

    Speaking of popcorn, I'll share one last quick tip before I go. If your family enjoys popcorn, purchase a refillable bucket upon arrival so you can enjoy refills throughout your stay and in all four theme parks. They also make fun souvenirs; we like to use them to hold popcorn and other snacks at home.

    Best wishes for a memorable vacation, Jason. If there's anything else we at planDisney can do to make it even more magical, don't hesitate to come see us again. Stay tuned to the park hours calendar for updates to the entertainment schedule, and we'll see ya real soon!
