    Hello! We will be visiting WDW in early August and have read varying comments about the Fantasy Parade. Some stated that it starts in Frontierland and other that say it ends in Frontierland. I just wanted to clarify where the parade route is. Thanks!

    Hi Natalie,

    How exciting!! Your magical visit to the Walt Disney World Resort is just a couple of short weeks away! I hope you're counting down the days until all of the magic and fun begin. My family loves making a paper chain as a great way to build anticipation visually, and we also like to play the, "What will be doing this time in __ weeks?" game. Thinking about the fun ahead of time helps extend the magic, and then we're all beyond excited for our trip to begin when we pass through those magical welcome gates!

    You are going to LOVE the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade! Packed with beloved characters, gorgeous floats, captivating music, and fun choreography, it's sure to put a big smile on your face! The parade route begins in Frontierland, just to the left of Splash Mountain if you're standing on the bridge watching the big drop. It will wind its way through Frontierland and Liberty Square, in front of Cinderella Castle, and down Main Street U.S.A. before ending between Sorcerers of the Magic Kingdom and Harmony Barber Shop. There are great viewing places all along the route, and I'd recommend grabbing a yummy snack and finding a spot in the shade at least 30-45 minutes before the parade begins. We love to use that time to talk about what our favorite memories of the day have been so far and what we look forward to doing after the parade ends. Then when we hear the music begin and we know the parade is about to arrive, we're all so excited to get completely swept up in the magic! Even I feel like a kid again, waving to all of my favorite characters and singing along with the music.

    Thanks so much for stopping by the Disney Parks Moms Panel, Natalie, and please let us know if we can help with anything else as you're thinking through the details of your trip. I hope that you have a truly magical vacation!
