    Hello! We are planning to visit Magic Kingdom on Nov 14 and 15 and was wondering if they still had parades going on? I saw the day calendar and nothing shows up. Is it because of the Christmas Party?

    Away we go, Anna! Welcome to planDisney, where we're happy to answer all of your Disney vacation planning questions!

    Hear ye! Hear ye! A day at Magic Kingdom Park is always more whimsical when you're warmly invited to join Mickey Mouse and his Fantasyland friends for the magical celebration in the street known as the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade. While I'm partial to waving to my favorite character, Ariel, the entire parade is bound to bring a smile to your face. And yes, as my friend Raquel always points out, when the characters are waving, they are waving right a you! So be sure to smile, cheer, and wave right back!

    As of writing this answer, the times for the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade have not yet been published past November 4, 2023. But that does not mean that the parade will not take place when you are there. Continue to check back with the calendar as your dates approach. Operation times can change leading up to the day of your visit. And don't forget that since this entertainment option is outdoors, it will only take place if the weather cooperates. As such, things really can change up to the very minute of the performance!

    Now while the beauty and majesty of this parade dazzles brilliantly and shines magically, it's not the only celebration in the streets. Let's not forget about the Disney Adventure Friends Cavalcade that just recently added Bruno from Encanto to its lineup. Oh, wait. Was I not supposed to talk about him? Well, I guess I can since we've found out the truth about him. I can't wait to wave to him during my upcoming trip this month!

    Anna, you've got a dream, and come November it'll be coming true with your visit to the Walt Disney World Resort. Please reach out if you have any other questions!

    Think of all the joy you'll find when you leave the world behind,
