“Disney Festival of Fantasy Parade,” the newest procession to make its way down Main Street, U.S.A., will debut at Magic Kingdom Park this Sunday, March 9.

The parade, which serves as a tribute to New Fantasyland, will feature nearly 100 performers telling the stories of “Frozen”, Brave”, “Peter Pan,” Sleeping Beauty,” and other Disney and Pixar films. Classic Disney characters like Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse, of course, will also highlight parade floats, some of which will measure up to 26 feet tall and 90 feet long.

Which Disney character or float are you most excited to see in the new parade? Tell us in the “Comments” section below!

Is all of it an option? I cannot wait to see the Sleeping Beauty dragon, Elsa & Anna, and The Little Mermaid float.

So excited! We did FP+ for this event on opening day so we have front row viewing with the castle in the background.

My 6-year-old daughter is going to dress up as Elsa and freak out when she sees her in the parade!

What time is the parade?

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on March 10th, 2014 at 6:56 pm

Usually 3 p.m., but check the Times Guide on the day of your visit – sometimes times fluctuate around the holidays.

Ryan on March 7th, 2014 at 11:37 pm

Yes John,…I agree! The ever elusive Dumbo would be ‘awesome’ to see! In fact, it was just mentioned by Banks Lee on “Attractions” weekly youTube blog that he ‘also’ would love to see Dumbo in the parade too!

I also love ‘all’ of the “Fantasia” characters as well…Hyancinth Hippo, Madame Upanova, Bacchus, Centaurettes, etc.

Perfect timing! We will be checking into Bay Lake Tower on Sunday :-) I’m looking forward to the Peter Pan float the most! Here we goooooooo!!!!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on March 10th, 2014 at 10:34 am

I hope you enjoy it, Sarah. :)

I see a comment above that a guest was able to use FP+ for parade viewing. When making our FP+ selections for upcoming visit in April I could not find parade or fireworks viewing as an option. Called Disney and was told this was no longer a FP+ option. Wondering how other guest were able to do so?

It looks like Festival of Fantasy is available as a FP+ experience until March 31st but not afterwards. Whether that changes or not remains to be seen.

Got to see the Parade on Sunday and loved it! Nice to see almost all of the Princesses there. Loved Rapunzel and Eugene!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on March 10th, 2014 at 6:55 pm

Love “Tangled”!

Ethan on March 10th, 2014 at 12:55 pm

Loved it! I was lucky enough to have FP+ for this and all of the Imagineers who designed the parade were standing behind us for the opening day (about 10 of them). After it was all over we got to meet them and say thank you to them. It was a GREAT day!

 

Jennifer Fickley-Baker on March 10th, 2014 at 6:55 pm

Sounds great, Ethan!

Wish we could have been there today to see it. Most excited to see Merida and her float on our next visit. Nice to see Disney updating their parade again every few years!
