    We are planning a trip for mid May. Will there be a festival of fantasy parade and cavalcade?

    Hi there, Stephanie!

    Thank you for contacting planDisney with your question! May is a great time of year to visit Walt Disney World Resort! The weather is usually pleasant, and most children are still in school. The EPCOT International Flower & Garden Festival is also in bloom through May 27, 2024. My kids always enjoy participating in Spike’s Pollen-Nation Exploration scavenger hunt which includes a fun prize, while supplies last. I like seeing some of my favorite Disney Characters in topiary form and snacking my way through the Outdoor Kitchens!

    I just checked the Hours & Events Calendar for May 2024, and the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is currently scheduled to take place on most days at 3:00 PM in Magic Kingdom Park. This is subject to change and weather-dependent, but it sounds like the chances are high that you can catch this spectacular parade! We like to watch the parade near Pecos Bill Tall Tale Inn and Cafe, as it seems more Guests view the parade on Main Street, U.S.A. It is also the perfect excuse to order some Mini Churros with Chocolate Sauce! Just check the My Disney Experience app on the day of your visit to confirm the schedule.

    Stephanie, I hope you have a magic-filled trip to Walt Disney World Resort! Please reach out to planDisney again if you have other questions!

    Wishing you a Great, Big, Beautiful Tomorrow!
