    Hi, we are visiting the first fortnight in October and wondered what time the daytime parade is at Magic Kingdom? Also are the fireworks at 9pm on non Halloween party nights? Thanks

    Welcome, Louise! It's always such a pleasure to welcome a namesake to planDisney! Not long now til you are immersed in the magic of Walt Disney World. 

    Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade is a must-see in Magic Kingdom Park for our whole family. All your treasured characters, the music, and delightful floats are guaranteed to put a smile on your face and a spring in your step. Typically, this parade runs at 12pm and 3pm. You can check back closer to the day of your visit online to ensure its running times. The same thing goes for Happily Ever After. Again, a not to be missed spectacular that sees the iconic Cinderella Castle magically come to life. I am so excited for you to experience both! In my experience, timings are usually confirmed for entertainment about three weeks out, so please remember to check back. 

    Louise, you're correct that on nights when Mickey's Not-So-Scary Halloween Party, the nighttime spectacular becomes Disney's Not-So-Spooky Spectacular. Just know that this event requires a separately purchased ticket. All the running dates for this spooky experience are available online now.

    Best wishes and pixie dust for a magical time at Walt Disney World, Louise. Please let me know if I can help with anything further, Louise.
