The “Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade” has arrived at Magic Kingdom Park!
The parade, which serves as a tribute to New Fantasyland, officially debuted as the park’s new daily afternoon parade on Sunday.
The procession features nearly 100 performers and Disney characters, with floats specifically telling the stories of “Tangled,” “Peter Pan,” “Brave,” “Sleeping Beauty” and many more. Highlights you won’t want to miss include seeing Maleficent appear as a fire-breathing dragon, and an appearance by Anna, Elsa and Olaf (from “Frozen”) on the Princess Garden float. For more highlights and to hear what some of the first spectators think, be sure to check out the video below.

One of Disney Cruise Line’s differentiators is the way we bring destinations alive on our ships. During our Mediterranean voyages this summer, you’ll get a taste of the area’s culture through various onboard offerings like entertainment and dining.

“Space shuttle, this is flight safety…” I can still recall my first ride on Space Mountain during my first trip to the Walt Disney World Resort in July 1983. The attraction was my first Disney coaster and, despite some tears after that first ride, it quickly became a favorite thing at Magic Kingdom Park.
On October 1, 1991, Magic Kingdom park welcomed a brand-new nighttime parade: “SpectroMagic”

Hold onto your hats and glasses, because I’ve got big news to share today about Big Thunder Mountain Railroad at Disneyland park. The wildest ride in the wilderness is reopening on March 17!

Pam Brandon recently shared some early details on the St. Patrick’s fun planned for Downtown Disney. Today, I want to give you even more insights into what you can expect this year! For starters, the event has a new name: “The Mighty St. Patrick’s Festival” which really ties to the over-the-top revelry we have planned. Spanning eleven days – from tonight through March 17, 2014 – there is more to experience than ever before. With festivities centered around Raglan Road and spilling throughout all of Downtown Disney, I think we can all agree that this celebration is mighty, indeed!
