    Why are there no Magic Kingdom parade times listed after May 6?

    Well hi there Jessica, and welcome to planDisney!

    I'm glad that you've come here to ask me about the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade, as I absolutely love watching the parades at Disney Destinations around the world. Some of my all-time favorites include "Dream... and shine Brighter!" over at Disneyland Paris which is seriously next-level alongside the incredible "Magic Happens" Parade over at Disneyland

    I took the opportunity to inquire with some friendly Guest Relations Cast Members regarding the scheduled parade times for the rest of May, and they let me know their reasoning as to why there are no listed times on the Walt Disney World Resort Calendar available to view at the current time beyond the date that you indicated: it simply has not been officially updated yet. In the past there could have been a number of reasons why schedules may not be posted far in advance, and if there are any considerations for any changes they require the time to make sure that it does not adversely affect any other operations before officially updating it for guests to be able to see and plan around. 

    While this can make it tricky for folks and families to plan ahead, I recommend checking back online or via your My Disney Experience Mobile App to be able to see as soon as schedules are updated. As a former parade performer, I would be very surprised if this meant anything like the Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade coming to an end next month, despite it getting closer to being performed for a decade. I can only imagine that things like this could signal changes and updates happening behind the scenes as more magic is being made to add to the experience for Walt Disney World Resort guests. In fact, over the next few months we're sure to see the debut of some Entertainment offerings including new Character Experiences coming to the Theme Parks that I'm definitely excited about. 

    I recommend reading the Disney Parks Blog for the most accurate and up-to-date information out there, and don't hesitate to come back to planDisney to ask me any more questions!

    Here's to keeping a close eye on the parade updates as they happen ahead of your next adventure!
